Seth Williams Thank you Seth for your help, I'm in!
Finding DOM (days on market) for a county or zip code?
How do you find DOM data for a particular county/zip for free? This particular state is not covered by Redfin.
@imelbel what is DOM data?
Charlotte Irwin days on market. I want to focus on areas where land is selling quickly. TIA!
@imelbel you can find this pretty easily with Zillow. It won't be the full average of the entire market, but you can see it very clearly with each individual property listing after you put in your search parameters:
If you want to see a higher-level view of what the average DOM is for all properties that show up in your search, you could do this pretty easily with something like PriceBoss. I've got a video showing how it works in this blog post.
Seth Williams Thanks, Seth! I see that on Zillow. Wish there was a way to download that info, so I could get a precise average of days on market for a particular market. I will check out the blog you tagged here. Thanks again!
@imelbel Hi, you can search "Web Scraping" on YouTube, there will be tons of information pop up. Basically, it's a process of using bots to extract data from a website. Many investors use this technique to extract and analyze data from Zillow and Redfin and pricing offers accordingly.
But beware things can become tricky if these websites detect your IP address when you extracting data from them. The result will be banning you from access to their website temporarily or permanently. To prevent this from happening, many people use VPN or Proxy server to hide their IP address. There are also other methods that can be used to prevent website discovering you.
Land Academy has some information on the subject and they use Web Harvey(their YT channel is called sysnucleus) to do the job.
I hope this helps.
