Update 8/25/2014: It's been 9 years since I started HousingTracker as a personal project to try to gain insight into rapidly changing home prices during the housing bubble. There wasn't nearly as much data available then as there is now, and I was happy to make a very small contribution towards improving that situation. In 2014 there is a lot more data available and most of that data is better than what I can provide — especially considering recent challenges of maintaining data quality. As such, I've decided to end the HousingTracker project.

If you're looking for asking price and inventory data, my favorite source is Zillow's data page specifically the For-sale inventory (raw) csv and the Median list price csv. It's not quite as timely as HousingTracker data, but it has broader coverage and is likely more accurate.

Thanks for visiting!
