Many housing indices like those produced by NAR (National Association of Realtors) and Case-Shiller are too general for everyday real estate buying, selling and investing decisions. Brad Inman interviews Allan N. Weiss, Founder and CEO Weiss Analytics, who has devised a new house-specific index that gives a much more granular picture of your local housing market.

Weiss is a co-founder of the Case-Shiller Weiss housing market index and an expert on everything real estate data.

Inman will soon be publishing the Weiss Analytics information in our Select local editions, right down to the ZIP code level.
