Realtors, sell better with data

Be shockingly helpful and informed

As a realtor, your business foundation is in the relationships you’ve built with everyone around you. You know that to build strong relationships, you start by getting close to the people around you, but how can you do that better, when buyers want to ‘see the data themselves’ and want quick answers to often data-focused questions around sales and comparables to inform their decision.

Clients demand concrete data, statistical insights, trends, and an easy way to understand all of that.

Exceed clients expectations, by leveraging the power of data and visualizations to make more compelling sales pitches.Understanding your customers’ wants and presenting them on a customized dashboard with supporting data can go a long way in explaining to customers, helping you sell more properties.

How easy is it to create visualizations?

To create visualizations like these:

Bar Chart

Line Graph

Location-based data

You either have to:

  • Get someone to do it: wait a few days for it to be done, spend a few more days liaising to adjust the data or formatting to be exactly what you want. You may even need to hire somebody if you don’t have a BI or analytics expert on your team… This is slow, inefficient, and not customer-centric.
  • Do it yourself: block out an hour or two every week from your schedule so you can go through all the data, crunch out charts, and put them in your sales pitch deck while you’re stuck at the desk. To get really interactive dashboards, you’ll have to invest a hefty amount on a BI tool like Tableau or PowerBI too. This is time consuming, requires training, and, expensive.

With Zing Data: everything changes. Zing is designed to simplify data analysis for busy professionals like yourself, who are always on the go.

Connect to your data, create informative visualizations, export them as images to be used in your deck or share them with your team members, right on your phone. Here is a walkthrough of how Zing Data will change your data analysis workflow as a realtor.

Connecting the data

MLS Data

The most time-efficient way you can work with data is by connecting to a database, such as the one containing MLS data your firm uses. This is a one-time process, once you’re connected, you can always work with the most updated data provided by your MLS without further configuration.

Zing works with a variety of popular SQL-based databases: PostgreSQL, MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server, Snowflake and more.

Not sure which database your firm is using and/or how to connect to it? No problem, we can help you set it up!

Public Data

Alternatively, you can find and download publicly available housing market datasets online, before uploading them on to Zing as .csv or.xls files, or on to Google Sheets. These datasets usually contain aggregated information of geographic areas by zip codes, cities, states, or countries arranged in monthly or yearly intervals. Such data can help you and your clients identify trends in your area’s housing market and discover opportunities.

Examples of sites where you can find free data are:

Visualizing the data:

Drag and drop

With Zing’s newest SwiftQuery feature, you can simply drag and drop fields into a chart template, and see the visualizations come to live! You can also define filters for the data returned, and introduce dimensions to the output.

In this example, I am using data about the housing markets in San Francisco, Oakland and Berkeley from RedFin, and want to educate my clients on trends in the North Bay before they move here:

You can also click to select your own aggregations on data fields to use:

An even simpler way of creating visualizations is by asking what you want, in prose! Zing translates your words into SQL code, using LLMs from OpenAI, Google and more, you just need to ask away in our search bar:

If you want to write your own SQL commands and conduct more advanced data manipulation before visualization, you can do so with Zing’s Custom SQL Editor, equipped with code typeahead and color coding.

Using the visualizations

What can you do with the visualizations you’ve just created?
