US Census

Question:

What is the basis of the underlying data of this site — it seems that the bulk of it is relying on US Census data?

Answer:

While the US Census does offer a lot of interesting data for “statistics junkies,” for a variety of reasons, Census data is not a major component of our core product.

Sources of HousingAlerts Data

We procure our data from several sources, some of which are proprietary.

If you watch the training videos or the webinar carefully, you will notice that the data source is only a small portion of the value of HousingAlerts, with the larger portion being what we do with the data and how we prepare it for easy consumption and decision making.

Quarterly Data Updates

For most of the tools, the data is updated Quarterly, approximately 55 days after the end of each calendar quarter.

The Monthly Regional Tool is updated monthly, approximately 55 days after month end.

Our database tracks specific house-by-house transactions in each market. Collecting and analyzing this information takes considerable time and effort.

QUESTION:

I have a friend who recently purchased your HousingAlerts program. You stated that appreciation is the only real estate wealth builder and transactional funding is never the way to “get out of the rat race”. However, I see from this email that you seem to be endorsing another iFlip system for wholesaling SFR’s (Single Family Residence).
