In updating our website, Urbanism Group knew that it was extremely important to provide content that would be interesting and relevant to our target audience. One of the thoughts was to provide data/statistics related to our industry. Obviously, there is no end to the supply of data in the real estate industry; we are all inundated with reports, releases, charts, graphs, summaries, details, historical, projections, etc., and it is all pertinent, interesting and vital to the objective of competing today. Yet, we envisioned something a bit different: we were looking for information that was simple, yet significant, that was quickly understandable with no detailed study, and that was self-updating, thus eliminating our need to maintain and update—or worse—run the risk of hosting stale data. After quite a bit of searching, we discovered Altos Research, whose tag line is “”?
After a few conversations featuring the best service that one could hope for, we found exactly the product we were looking for. Within no time at all, the product was located on a dedicated page on our website; simple graphs summarizing historical trends in price and inventory in our region and in our city. Once embedded, it updates from Altos Research’s server requiring no maintenance from our side. Short – simple – sweet! And the price with Altos Research could not be beat; that is their introductory product offering which is free of charge. We have already begun to explore other product and opportunities with Altos Research, and it became apparent quickly that they have an impressive array of services to offer companies that are in real estate and/or that service the real estate industry, from small to large, from east to west; not only pertinent to our web site, but information and packages that could be extremely helpful with prospective clients. Definitely worth a trip to their website.
