You already know that fresh content and useful data are two of the keys to a successful real estate website. You also know that vegetables are the key to a healthy diet. Odds are, you’re not doing enough of either.

The problem is simple: it takes a lot of time to troll through the MLS and compile statistics, especially if you want to keep them updated often. Luckily, a new breed of online companies has popped up to help provide you with the charts and data your visitors want, updated automatically.

Altos Research

The most well known real estate statistics provider is Altos Research, and they’re well known for a reason. This is the company I use, and though they’re the most expensive of the bunch they offer a lot of cool features:

  • Good looking charts
  • Altos Explorer, which makes it easy for you to design your own chart then paste the code into your website.
  • Auto-updating charts, which means once you paste the code they’ll keep updating automatically
  • A nice 10 page market report covering your specified zip code.

The downside is, they’re not cheap. Pricing starts at $79 a month for their pro plan which gives you 7 zip codes, or $149 a month for their premium plan.

RE Report

While they’re currently only available in California, RE Report is another solid contender, though without the polish of Altos Research. They offer:

  • A stand alone website with a signup form to generate leads
  • A very useful local real estate report covering the local market
  • Better pricing

They price is $45 per report (each report covers a city or area), which puts them at nearly half of what Altos charges. The tradeoff is that you can’t really customize their charts or offerings.
