You're Using the MBC Tools

By Dave Fratello | April 24th, 2013

When we launched the new/improved MB Confidential about 2 months ago, we were hopeful that readers would take to the new tools we had made available. (See "MB Confidential's New Look & Tools.")

We're happy to see that you are using the site tools and info here. 

As we anticipated, the most popular page, day in and day out, is the MB Dashboard. This has all the comings and goings – newest listings, newest pending deals, closed sales, etc.

In this very busy Spring market, the dashboard has proved to be a way to track the fast and furious action.

We met a new client recently who had been using both active listing searches and the MB Market Updates on pending/sold properties to gauge the market for his own property. (The most recent updates are this 4/15/13 update on pendings/solds, and this 4/15/13 update on active inventory. Whew, the active lists get out of date quickly!)

And Dave just needed to put together a list of pending sales in the Tree Section. A quick click on the pulldown menu under the MB Dashboard, and we got "Newest Deals (in escrow)," and soon we were buzzing through the 83 pending sales in MB. (Wow, 83 pending, against 36 active listings!) Dave had his Tree Section list in no time.

One more note: We're a little surprised to see that MB Rental Search is one of the more popular searches. It's nice to be able to offer that. A friend recently let us know the search was useful for pricing the family's own rental property, which is about to have the lease expire. A couple of minutes on the rental search, and the friend had a great sense of the current rental market and how to price his property.

Yep, there's a lot here, useful for many different purposes. Here's hoping you're among those benefiting from it all.
