MAAR's market reporting services have been around for awhile now, but it wasn't until the last two years that we'd like to think we hit our stride.
That's when things like "The 100," the Monthly Skinny Videos, the Skinny Blog (you're already here, dummy), the Lender-Mediated Report, the Housing Supply Outlook and much more started being produced and distributed with the intent of giving the Twin Cities community the most complete and detailed picture of local housing market conditions around.
To make this type of new development and innovation possible, MAAR has had to direct more resources towards market research than ever before, as one would expect. In other words, it ain't cheap. It's worth it, since our market research ranks as the top service behind MLS by our members in a recent survey, but now we've got a new friend jumping in to help sponsor the work.
MAAR's market research services—from top to bottom—are now sponsored by Royal Credit Union (RCU). RCU has been around Western Wisconsin for many years (decades even) but now have entered the wonderful world of the Twin Cities through their recent merger with the venerable Twin Cities REALTORS® credit union, formerly known as Real Financial. They're an ideal sponsor due to their new ties to the people we work for (REALTORS®, dummy) and the cities we work in.
You'll now see their logo and name on the Today in the Market section of our website, the sidebar of this here blog, the footer of our market reports and a few other discreet spots.
Please join us in welcoming RCU to the fold and thanking them for their ongoing support of MAAR's market reporting services.
