Sometimes I feel like the preacher with too few butts in the pews! As a whole (particularly for smaller operations) when it comes to sales we operate in a reactionary manner. When we enjoy good times, we focus on the work ahead and during bad times we save what we can. For over 20 years we’ve preached the importance of playing a reasoned game that most always moves the ball forward or at least minimizes your losses. This requires planning, good execution and constant attention to the action on the field so that you can make the adjustments that current conditions require. Today, we challenge our readers to take advantage of a market that still has many challenges to overcome. For too many of us, selling and profitability sometimes go in opposite directions. But, it all starts with sales and that’s what we’re going to talk about. Contact us to find out about some actionable points we’d like you to take to heart.
Focus on REDI Data/ Atlanta Housing Report
Most DEC Reports are designed to help you target your market at the specific moment in time that makes sense for your business. In the single-family and multi-family markets we offer three services that precisely target those opportunities. Our REDI Data product previously called Atlanta Housing Report has undergone a total overhaul this year and is faster, more accurate and just as timely as before. Think of REDI Data as Permit Facts on steroids. REDI Data’s various iterations include North and South, Single-Family and Multi-Family and share the same key characteristics…they allow the user to slice and dice information incredibly quickly and look at housing data through one of two lens—by builder or by subdivision.
Membership to REDI Data is by subscription like all our other services but immediately entitles you to review data on builders and subdivisions from January first 2012 forward. In addition, we also maintain data going back 20 years on over a million other permits issued either by subdivision or by builder on special request. Our recent move to a new platform has done away with any browser issues we once ran into and allow our users to access data without constraint. Sort, filter, download, rank or just about anything you could possibly think about are now just a few mouse clicks away.
REDI Data is the “go to” service for banks, builders, suppliers and others who realize the importance of tracking residential market velocity. REDI Data covers 28 counties in the Metro Atlanta area and is by far the best permit analysis system around. DEC derives information from well over 100 information providers on a regular basis and is inputted and verified the same week we receive our data. No one else can make that claim. See why REDI Data has the highest renewal rate in the industry!
