SEATTLE, Sept. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The full suite of Zillow® real estate aggregate data and related indices, including the Zillow Home Value Index and negative equity data, is now available to customers of Moody's Analytics, a leading independent provider of economic forecasting.
Zillow's leading 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. "No other single real estate data source can match the footprint and depth of Zillow's sales and rental information. We're excited to have a new way to distribute this data, which has always been freely available on Zillow.com, and are very pleased to be working with Moody's Analytics to make it more broadly accessible."
In addition to the data described above, 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.
