When we first started this blog nearly a year ago, our goal was to make our plethora of complex housing data easier to digest and even more useful through cool interactive data visualizations. Since then, we’ve evolved to become even more than that.
Bringing together a team of creative design technologists, super-smart data analysts and savvy writers as well as our awesome Chief Economist Jed Kolko, we’re investigating a wider range of unconventional housing trends — from measuring housing misery in different states to tracking the window shopping activity of European house hunters. We’re also breaking down current events, new housing policies and local market data — such as the robo-signing settlement and the monthly jobs report – to help translate what really matters to people who are looking for a new home. Lastly, we continue to make good on our original promise to deliver visual insights – which has included visualizations that shed light on where and when people are looking for homes.
So to reflect our evolution as a blog, we’ve changed our names to Trulia Trends and updated our mission statement. Ta-da!
And with that, here’s to many more years of sharing trends through data, design and insights!
