They can improve their ROI by knowing when and where to buy or sell. For firms offering mortgages or mortgage insurance they can create better pricing and underwriting models and can target more promising areas while avoiding problematic areas. Firms can will also have better intelligence to help them re-balance a portfolio of loans or re-insure an insurance portfolio.
Users of Zip Analyser can learn of growing and declining neighborhoods before they are reflected in prices. For example, an investor wants to buy property in Atlanta or Dallas. He knows these are promising markets, but exactly where in these cities should he be looking and where should he avoid? As a user of Zip Analyser, he can enter in the metro area and learn exactly which neighborhoods in each of these cities has the highest income, lowest unemployment, highest population growth, etc. Furthermore, he can compare one neighborhood with another in the same city or in different cities. The Zip Analyser’ platform a will also show users which neighborhoods to avoid and are on the decline.
Another example, a portfolio manager managing a nationwide portfolio of real estate assets can establish alerts to be alerted to neighborhoods that hit certain criteria (i.e. out-migration and increasing unemployment) and could be headed for price declines. With this information, the portfolio manager decides to sell assets now in the problematic neighborhoods rather than wait for lower prices. Another example, a mortgage insurance company can be alerted to neighborhoods where unemployment is increasing and incomes are declining and re-price their offer, or change guidelines or procedures, or re-focus new business efforts in more promising neighborhoods. Another example, a mortgage service firm can begin loss mitigation efforts sooner in problematic neighborhoods when a borrower shows signs of trouble.
The aforementioned examples will result in Zip Analyser users increasing their return on investment, identifying buying or selling situations and mitigating potential losses.
We buy a lot of data every month/quarter; none is pulled or online, from various brokers – the same type of data that large investment firms, builders, and retailers buy and aggregate, to build their in-house proprietary data mapping systems for location intelligence.

Many real estate web sites and data provider have “current” home values and property information; however the local data they offer is OLD, more than a YEAR old in most cases. Even worse, most variables are at such a high level of geography such as “Market” or City, that these aggregated values are extremely INACCURATE for any home or Block.
Even worse, most variables are at such a high level of geography such as “Market” or City, that these aggregated values are extremely INACCURATE or MISLEADING for real estate investors and home buyers. Even if an investor or real estate professional could compile a large database of current local GIS data, Zip Analyser algorithms and spatial modeling help investors identify changes, trends and slopes in critical variables at the local market level. Zip Analyser saves real estate investors years of frustration and data collection. Our system delivers answers to critical investor questions, fast.
There are many vendors that offer 10-year and yearly demographics. The Census Bureau has 10-year data that is available from their website. Most online vendors just sell yearly demographics at a lump price, ranging from $500 to over $5,000 per year, or hundreds of dollars for just a single report of old yearly data. There are a handful of vendors who update their national database on a weekly, monthly, or quarterly basic, but none of these vendors sell online, and their price for data is over $10,000 per year. Zip Analyser has established strategic relationship with these vendors, so you can profit. With your membership to Zip Analyser, you have no data to buy, no software to develop, and access to the most recent demographic and economic data information and trends available anywhere!

We believe real estate investors should have access to the most current local market data, leading economic indicators, and accurate local real estate forecasts to make smarter decisions. Today real estate investors are flying blind, and this core data is not on the web. That is why we have invested so much time and resources to get www.zipanalyser.com to the public.
Today, this access does not exist, and only large corporations who can afford access, have access. It is thus our mission to develop the technology to allow real estate professional access.
We are a team of Ph.D.’s, real estate professionals, and IT developers. Zip Analyser was created because our founder, Eddie Godshalk, lost millions as a real estate investor because of inaccurate forecasts of mapping software. That led him to gather a team, buy expensive datasets from government and private sources, and create software that accurately predicts in what area real estate is likely to grow and fall in value.
With over 20-years of experience as agents and real estate investors, we at Zip Analyser keenly know the value of current local information, and the lack of this information has caused great hardships and lack of a clear risk modesl within the financial industry. Our goal at Zip Analyser, is to leverage our innovations, and improve the services to the real estate and financial industry with greatly improved systems that can instantly access current local data information in an easy-to-use manner.
Anyone can aggregate data online, license ESRI, and hire GIS developers to build their own data-mapping application, for their DESKTOP, but this is ONLY, for the desktop, which is what and how some major builders know about local growth patterns. TO duplicate just the above, someone would have to build their own custom GIS data visualization software,
First buy and aggregate over 4 years of data for every month/quarter for all 310,000 USA markets and submarkets. Then buy mapping software which cost thousands of dollars, or develop your own applications using open source or other software. Then hire a top level GIS programmer, and with 4 ½ years have your own custom mapping system in-house. Then build accurate 36-month predictive models for all 311,000+ US markets, which can take even a longer period of time to test and back-test. Or just use the Zip Analyser, and save a lot of headaches, time, and money.
It is very hard to develop, very time consuming, and takes a lot of custom coding. The data is not free, and you cannot pull the data from any vendor or website. It takes a lot of time, many years, and a huge financial investment to build dynamic customizable real-time data-maps, with block group forecasting models. Currently this technology does not exist on the web.
Real estate investors and real estate professionals are responsible for making the right real estate decision in buying, selling, and pricing, are missing critical data at the Block, Track, and all neighborhood levels. This lack of current local data, information, and growth patterns, contributes to the potential high risk of holding real estate for the long-term. Real estate is opaque, and new data and technology is needed for clarity. And Zip Analyser addresses this core problem head-on.

Yet, just two blocks away, there is blight and declining factors that will affect real estate price changes in the future. How can anyone tell, without better data and technology, without Zip Analyser?

Although, there is no direct competitor offering the most current, and monthly updated, local market information analysis based on current Social-economic information, demographic and economic data and growth patterns online, there are a number of firms that provide real estate data. The biggest of these firms is ESRI provides some GIS software and some stale yearly data that businesses can license and programed desktop applications. REIS Reports and Real Capital Analytics provides macro reports from $100 to $10,000, that do not include any growth patterns of the latest social-economic factors that will affect price changes.

Zip Analyser is updated daily, since current information and relative local market information is what matters in making smart real estate decisions.
