Hello all, I would have to imagine there is a way to pull how many SFR Parcels that have improvements of $1 or 1% or more in a particular zip code in one list rather than having to go in and searching each individual zip code separately. The reason I am asking is I believe it would make the research for good Infill Lot zip codes a whole heck of a lot easier. In Chapter 2 Stephen has you go through and look for consistency of sales prices as step 1 then he has you go and pull the data from redfin as step 2 and finally he has you then go one by one and look up how many sfr parcels w/ improvements of $1/1% or more as the final step. To me it would make a lot more sense if you first took an entire state for example and pulled the redfin data by zipcode and then if you were able to pull the sfr parcel count by zip code in one go rather than doing it manually you could then find a list of zips that Days on Mkt are low,New List to Sold is below 100% and Parcels on Mkt to All is below 1%. Basically you would have the list of all zips that meet the Red Yellow Green test and from there you could then go to each zipcode and look for the ones that have consistent pricing as the last step instead of the first.
Am I crazy or would this be a much better approach? Maybe it isn’t possible to pull the SFR Parcel counts in any sort of bulk way but I have to think it would be worth the effort to see if it could be done since it would save a ton of time and effort. Has anyone else done anything like this to help them during their market research time to be more efficient at finding the best zips to mail to?
