Visualizing the 2009 NAR Home Buyers Profile


NARLast week the National Association of REALTORS® published its annual profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, an incredibly thorough look into what prompted consumers to buy and sell real estate in 2009, available to all licensed REALTORS®.

This report, which covers everything from the very broad (like how much the average consumer spent on a new home) to the very very precise (such as the primary language spoken by first-time home buyers) means one thing – lots of juicy data.

For the information junkies at Point2 this means we get an opportunity to pour over the endless charts & graphs, looking for interesting tidbits, facts, and trends; but we  recognize that this isn’t everyone’s ideal way of spending an evening.

Home_Buyers_2009So in an effort to spend the love of data around we whipped up a fancy infographic that takes some of the coolest stats from the Home-Buyer chapters and presents them in a single, easy-to-digest visual (which I might add is perfect for showing to your own buyers).  For example, did you know that in 2009 single females accounted for 21% of all homes purchased?  Neat stuff.

Check it out by clicking the image to the right, and if you have any questions, comments, or would like to see us publish more of these infographics – let us know.

Also, if you know anyone who might benefit from this data, nothing would make us happier then for you to share it with them.  Spread the love of data!
