Pricing Nation Forecasts 1.74% Increase in Average Home Values Through Next 12 Months for Boston MSA

Pricing Nation Econometrics forecasts that the average home value in the Boston Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA) will increase by 1.74% through the next twelve months. Some of the drivers of local change include average weekly wages and homeowner vacancies.  While there is a decline in supply (52.4% decrease in vacancies from Q3 to Q4 2012), there is not much improvement in the average weekly earnings (0.42% increase from Q3 to Q4 2012), which suppresses growth.

A table with the top 5 biggest increases and decreases per average home value per zip code can be found below. The Pricing Nation Econometrics Heat Map (also below) visualizes how the average home prices will vary across zip codes in the Boston MSA. Pricing Nation Econometrics is a division of Pricing Nation LLC, and more information can be found at www.pricingnation.com.

Benutech Launches New Spin On Paperless Real Estate Transaction Management

Benutech, Inc. announces the launch of ReboCollab, its new real estate transaction management software package.

Designed by real estate professionals for real estate professionals, ReboCollab starts with the basic online viewing and signing of real estate documents and innovates far beyond, creating an invaluable platform. Patent-pending technology enables disclosures to be filled out online, and the system uses assessor data to pre-map and/or pre-populate standard forms to ensure that all needed signatures are acquired. Version control and other organizational features, coupled with a straightforward drag-and-drop document movement system, provide the most recent version of the documents to the correct people at the right time.

A unique feature of this paperless transaction management system is that it doesn’t mandate digital signing. If a party prefers to put pen to paper, their documents can be printed, signed, scanned, and re-uploaded into ReboCollab, which incorporates advances like QR codes and an electronic document splitter to automatically recognize and import the documents just as if they had been signed online.

“So many transaction management software systems focus just on the Gen X and Gen Y users, but the baby boomers still play a critical role in the real estate space, so our goal was to design a platform that everyone could use,” said Benutech CEO Ryan Marshall.

Additionally, ReboCollab can be used both by an individual real estate professional or an entire enterprise; managers and coordinators can perform all the same functions as realtors, and the dashboard system keeps different transactions separate.

“Currently there are no shortages of transaction management software systems in the marketplace, but none of those systems have the functionality or the usefulness to the broker/owner or realtor that ReboCollab offers. Our enterprise solution and enclosed tools will make us the most popular and widely used software in its class,” stated Vice President of Sales for Benutech, Inc., Brian Fox.

Webinars introducing the product will be held during the next few weeks, with the first one on February 27th. For an invitation to one of these webinars, or to receive more information on the ReboCollab system, please contact Brian Fox at brian@benutech.com.
