Data Collection and Timing
All existing home and REO sale and mortgage data is meticulously collected from official recorded sales transactions across 3,400+ county recorder offices nationwide. Because county recorders complete their processes at different times, it may take longer to obtain this information in some areas of the nation. To deliver the most complete, official sales and mortgage data updates in the Real Estate Research Center may run 2-3 months behind the current month.
Due to the nature of the recording process for newly constructed homes, the new construction sale data will typically have a 8-9 month lag.
