Zillow data now available to customers of Moody's AnalyticsStaff writer ▼ | September 12, 2013
Zillow's real estate information databases cover the U.S. and more than 350 metro areas nationwide, and this data is widely available down to the ZIP code level and as far back as 1997.
Information now available to Moody's Analytics customers through its data delivery platform, DataBuffet, includes the Zillow Home Value Index and Zillow Rent Index, first-of-their-kind indices designed to measure the true market values of all homes potentially for rent or sale, not just those currently listed or recently sold.
Zillow negative equity data, which pairs estimated current market value data on individual properties with actual outstanding loan amounts to offer the most accurate picture of negative equity rates in a given region, is also available.
"Zillow firmly believes that open access to real estate data of all kinds can only help empower the people who use it, whether they are consumers or professional economists and analysts," said Zillow Chief Economist Stan Humphries.
Moody's Analytics DataBuffet customers will also have access to all of Zillow's aggregate real estate metrics, including median listing and sales prices; the percentage of properties selling for a gain or loss in an area; median list-to-sale price ratios; and foreclosure data. ■
