Working with us explained

That all depends! If you're looking to buy or sell a home then chosing to work with us means that we'll have a casual but detailed conversation about your wants and needs, your area, and your price range, then we'll match you up with a Realtor® in our network that's best suited to help you get exactly what you're looking for in this competitive market.

If you're a Realtor® and would like to become one of our partner agents or you'd like to incorporate the RUIZ REPORT into your business then working with us starts by heading to our Realtor® section to learn more!
For the right person? A lot! Our market is lucky enough to have a great bunch of Realtors® that will guide you through your buying or selling process with confidence and professionalism. That being said, if you were to ask many of those same agents about the financial health of your specific market and the metrics they're following to inform that opinion, well let's just say your confidence in their stewardship of your next several-hundred-thousand-dollar (or more!) purchase may diminish ever so slightly.

Our partner agents are hand-picked to do both. We'll match you up with who we feel is a "best fit" based on our initial conversation and it's on you to move forward from there. Hopefully you love who we send your way, but if not then we'd love the opportunity to match you up with someone else now that we know you a bit better!

No! Working with us is no different then working with any other Realtor®, except our partner agents will be much more informed about the market to best help you. With that in mind there's actually a very good chance we'll be able to help save you money on your next purchase or net you more on your next sale!

RUIZ REPORT explained

Data for each report is pulled from Canopy MLS for Single Family and Condo/Townhouse properties on or about the 3rd of every month (the last slide will say exctly when each report's data was pulled). This is because Realtors® are required to update their transactions on the MLS within 48hrs, so we give an extra little bit just to make sure we capture the straglers!

While most records for the month should have been accounted for, any updates that occured after the report was pulled will not have made the cut. This should not have a material effect on the data given the overall volume of transactions, but we are always willing and able to answer any questions about our results if you want to know more!

Data for each report is pulled from Canopy MLS for Single Family and Condo/Townhouse properties. There are many definitions of what constitutes a "single family" home, but we chose to limit it to these two categories because (1) that's how Canopy MLS has them categorized, and (2) those two categories account for the vast majority of all residential real estate transactions in our area.

This fact alone may very well account for any different numbers you might see, but there are also differences in how some may calculate their metrics, which is why we give a description of our formulas on the last slide of every report (the Appendix).

If you still have any questions then please feel free to click here to contact us because we'd love to nerd out with you (and we keep all of our data for that exact reason)!
This is a great question, I like you! Most of our metrics are simply the sum totals of events that during the given period (the month of October, as an example). There were x-homes that went under contract in October simply because, well ther were x-homes that went from "Active" to "Under Contract" in the month of October. No formulas necessary.

Not all of our metrics are that simple, notably the "Absorption Rate" and "Months Inventory," and for those we give a description of our formulas on the last slide of every report (the Appendix).
