New Housing Inventory & Pricing Tools on Redfin’s Website

As I mentioned in my previous post, the 92614 and 92604 ZIP codes in Irvine are two of the only seven Orange County ZIPs that showed an increase in selling price when compared to last year’s selling prices. I also said that a lot more investigation is needed to determine the reasons for this increase. I’ll be looking into these numbers in more depth in the future, but in the meantime Redfin has some new tools to help anyone who wants to do some investigation of their own.

So… If you are interested in pursuing a more in depth analysis for the 92614 and 92606 ZIPs (or any other areas), here is a way to get started:

  • Go to Redfin’s map page. (www.redfin.com, Search)
  • Enter the ZIP, neighborhood or city name that you are interested in (for example, 92614, Woodbridge or Irvine) in the “Search Listings” box at the top, left of the page.
  • Click on the “View Inventory & Pricing Trends” link at the top, left of the map.

This will bring you to Redfin’s new and oh-so-handy “Overview of Homes for Sale” webpage. This page will provide you with plenty of charts, graphs and numbers to help you with your search. Note that this page also allows you to sort data by Newest Listings, Upcoming Open Houses, Reduced Listings, Recently Sold, Most Expensive, and Least Expensive.

Another option for this particular search: Click on the ZIP or neighborhood name links that I provided in my previous post, “Irvine’s 92614 & 92606 Holding Their Own in Housing Prices”; then click on the associated “View Inventory & Pricing Trends” link that will appear at the top, left.

And More…

Other new tools are also available in this latest release of Redfin’s website, for example, new ways to manage your favorite listings. For more information on these tools, see CEO Glenn Kelman’s post or fellow blogger Sheila’s post.

Happy hunting. Let me know how it works out.
