Sales & Foreclosure Reports

I have to apologize for the delay in posting the May sales and foreclosure reports. That just happened yesterday. The reports had been prepared for some time but June turned into such a busy month with meetings, projects and our traditional end-of-June spike in recording activity that I just never loaded them onto the website. As the month dragged on, more and more of you sent emails checking on the status of the reports, so I know you make use of them. If it’s any consolation, the June sales and foreclosure reports went online earlier today and I’ll make an extra effort to post future reports in a timely manner. It’s unfortunate that our computer system is very limited in its ability to perform sophisticated analysis of sales data because the information in our computer has value that far exceeds its traditional use in examining titles. There are ways for us to export the data into other computer applications such as Crystal Reports, but we have no in-house experts on that software and it doesn’t lend itself to self-teaching. We’ll do what we can with what we have. As the summer progresses, we will try to give you more information on sales data and statistics and maybe you will have some ideas on how we can best use or information.
