Frequently asked questions

Our data is best categorized as "alternative data", which is a burgeoning sector. Through partnerships and direct feeds, we extract key factual elements that are publicly available within rental listings on internet listing sites and property websites. Once aggregated, we mine through the data to parse out relevant insights and calculate important metrics, benchmarks, and other KPIs. Each week, our system sifts through millions of listing observations and other pockets of market information to deliver the most comprehensive picture of rental housing available.

This is a metric that we try not to overthink. Simply, we take each unique listing observation within a geographic boundary and calculate a simple average. Of course, we're careful to filter for duplicates and other listings that aren't reflective of the market.

While some of our data is refreshed daily and other data comes in weekly, the bulk of it comes in on a biweekly basis.

Our coverage is nationwide! In our platform, we have data points for every ZIP code and neighborhood boundary in the country.

Every rental housing unit is differentiated by attributes such as its location, square footage, and amenity composition. Thanks to machine learning and natural language processing technologies we deploy, we're able to deconstruct our rental listing data points and identify key amenities for each listing. With this information, we're able to give signals around how certain amenities drive rental pricing value in certain areas.

Well, we think so! At the highest level, our process is simple. Listings data is ingested, cleaned (de-duplicated. etc.), analyzed for insights, and then presented to our users.
