2.1. Our Data

Altos has a proprietary database and market analytics system that we use to prepare our market reports. While we don't disclose the specifics on how our analytics technology works, the thing to understand is we obtain our data from multiple sources including off market. There are a few key things to be aware of that makes our data a bit different than direct from your MLS. We focus on 100% active market. Absorbed is commonly referred to as “Sold”. Our "absorbed" refers to anything that differs from that 100% active state (i.e. pending, expired, removed). Things like DOM, we do active to “absorbed” (absorbed on our terms). We also provide both a 90-day average (trend) and 7-day average that may differ from what a single source provides.
