Each month NAR conducts an attitudinal member survey known as the REALTOR® Confidence Index. The survey is designed to gauge real-time sentiment on current real estate trends and future activity not collected by local multiple listing services.
NAR compiles the results of the index by region in a report known as the REALTOR® Sentiment/Regional VicePresidential Report (RVPR). This enhanced version includes commentary from each of NAR’s 13 Regional Vice Presidents. These RVPRs provide insight into activity at the most local level of each market in each region.
Want to know more? Each report includes data from each region on distressed sales, foot traffic, down payment percentages and more. For more information on current RVPRs through April 2011, visit http://www.realtor.org/research/research/srs_rvpr
