How can we get better at timing the markets? That is the million dollar question. If we could just time the ups and downs of housing, we could really profit from that knowledge and be able to avoid loses by selling on time. Unfortunately, most of the data we get is focused on past results. So how is that supposed to help us when we need to be forward thinking? On this episode Kathy interviews Scott Sambucci, COO of Altos Research.
By watching the geo-local active housing market and tracking the changes once a week, Altos Research has learned a few things. Their leading indicators allow them to predict the future with statistical reliability. The AltosEvaluate Forward Valuation Model (FVM) takes the most relevant leading indicators and applies their proprietary algorithm to predict transaction prices up to a year in the future.
