Hi,

Do you guys know where to get two most important data feeds related to real estate:

1. Future job growth forecast by city.
2. Race in time (how many people of x race yesterday and how many today).

I could pay for this kind of data if you have it or if you could point me to.
Thanks in advance.

Andrzej

#1 is important but I don't think it is anywhere near the top of the list in relation to real estate and #2 is not in anyway important to any real estate professional.

Let's say I'm incorrect. The question was if you guys know how to get the not so important data.

Check the Bureau of Labor Statistics for job growth.

The second part you are on your own.

Job growth- I know Oregon has some development projections for some areas, but that is a tough one. It can change very quickly especially in this economy.

Racial diversity-I would check with the census bureau. That's only going to be every 10 years, but it will give you a trend. Otherwise, I might call the city hall of a town that you are interested in and see if they keep racial demographics for the town.

While this stats are important to you, they are not easily ascertained in a single type of report so it would be very difficult for city-data to have these for each city.

Case- Shiller ( notice how this name keeps popping up) has the forcast report you are looking for, for some markets. It's a long term view of real estate, based upon local employment factors, types of employment and cutural diversity.

This is not the same data as their well touted and "on the money" monthly reports. It's my understanding that the forecasts are commissioned, often by municipalities trying to shape their future. I am not sure if they are available for resale. Why not give them a call.

If you'll mail me a check for $100 and tell me which city you need the info for, I'll be happy to email you the most current data that exists.


er... better transfer the funds to my account. I believe the post office might have laws against this.
