Finding Non-Filtered Information To Help Meet Your Financial Goals

It seems as if another analysis appears every day, explaining recent trends in housing based on reports from the U.S. Census Bureau and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development or the National Association of Realtors. What is unfortunate about using some of this data is that it derived from sample surveys instead of gathering the raw data – counting the number of homes that actually closed escrow. It also allows columnists to offer their interpretation of the information that was gathered by a process that can be subject to sampling variability or non-sampling errors. This report I send you monthly offers actual information gathered using the information provided by Arizona Regional Multiple Listing Service. It is especially valuable because it reflects the area where your investment properties are located. The following is true, non-filtered information that we can use to strategize together to help meet your financial goals.
