There's only one person I know of who can provide that kind of info and have it be solid. Their website is www.investorhousingalerts.com. His background is MBA from Harvard, and decades of doing this kind of high level analysis for large, institutional investors. For whatever reason, he's decided recently to open this info up to other investors (fortunately, he's an investor too-- about $100 million or so). I had been looking for this, too, as a multifamily investor who wants to maximize my investments and who is especially tired of useless predictions about certain markets based on little info they can show to support their assertions. Naturally the info is not free but the great news is that you can buy the software just for your market and pay very little. Or you can expand and track the data for states, regions, or the whole country. This way you can buy where the markets are about to get hot. It's a GREAT way to lock into growing the equity in your property. Good luck and remember, rely on the numbers! Go to his company's site and watch the video which explains their ongoing work. Impressive and perfect for what most investors need in their business.
