Statistics are important to real estate. You want to make a strategic offer and investment and you should review what houses around you have sold for, then craft your offer. A trusted realtor will provide you with area statistics so that you can make an informed decision.

Certain data can provide a window into the market, whether it is a buyers market or a sellers market and this should indicate price and whether you have any room to negotiate.

Look beyond the sheen of a new home and review a few statistics before making your decision.
