5 RE Stats Pluses Matching of MLS System: Design look and feel for both colors and layout similar to the CAAR MLS system. …. Minuses 1.Matching of MLS System: The look and feel for both colors and layout similar to the CAAR MLS system. I mentioned this as a plus, but it is also a negative, as the layout of the CAAR MLS system is a bit old, and not what I and others would consider to be a “Web 2.0” look and feel. The divisions of the pages and reports contain little to no rounding of the borders and a lack of shadows which help to emphasize highlight various areas. 2.Firefox & Chrome Errors: The non-Microsoft browsers Firefox and Google Chrome do not display as the page elements as intended, the wording tends to flow outside of the defined divisions making their readability that much poorer. 3.High resolution requirement: The resolution required to display the page with out scrolling is relatively high in comparison. I needed to set the screen to 1280 by 1068 to not have to scroll left and right to view the page. People are used to scrolling up and down, but find it a pain to have to scroll to the right to view more of the page. Especially considering the market breakdown of this system is to the right side of the page, with the center left being a box for the user to update their information, which in my opinion is wasted, and would be better served in a settings section. 4.Android mobile issues: The web pages view as expected when using my android, but the generated PDF reports do not appear at all. This is a big negative, as the PDF reports are a large part of this products end game

6 RBI Intel Pluses 1.Matching Colors: Slightly eases the transition from one system to the other, making the transition a bit transparent from one web site to the other. 2.“Web 2.0”: The rounded borders, gradient fills, and shadows make this product more pleasing to the eye, and attractive to both end users and the public. The reports carry a much more “Professional” feel in comparison to the other product. 3.Use of images: The use of many and multiple chart images makes telling a story easy and obvious. “A picture is worth a thousand words…” 4.Fluid Layout: The layout or screen size does not require a high resolution monitor to view the elements of the page whereas the other product is geared for a minimum screen resolution of 1280 x 1068, this products screen layout fits well at a lower resolution and stretches to fill the higher resolution screens. Minuses Android mobile issues: Not all of the chart images appear when tested under the android mobile device. The PDF reports also need to be renamed before displaying on the device, as they were downloaded with a.bin extension instead of the.PDF extension.

9 Options RE Stats The RE Stats product offers more flexible searching, with the option to enter in numeric values, versus hard coded ranges. This is nice for someone wishing to have a more exact specification of the statistical comparison. RBI Intel The RBI Intel product uses hard code ranges, instead of user entered numerical values. The value ranges are more than adequate for what I understand of our user base. The product also offers a nice, easy to use method of adding in comparisons of one area, or stat point to another. For example, it is a very easy, and FAST to add in a comparison of one county to another. It doesn’t have the fine tuning that is available in the comparative system, but these detailed comparisons, one always has access to the raw data in the MLS system for generating or fine tuning a comparison.

10 Overall MLS Integration Both products make use of existing data sharing agreements. RE Stats is accessing CAAR data through the MLS alliance, which may add a bit of changes later as the MLS alliance is nearing the end of its life expectance. RBI has access through our agreement with MRIS, which has the advantage of being direct. Should this agreement cease at some point in the future, they would still have knowledge of our underlying system, and be able to continue with a feed directly to them as opposed to have to redo the time consuming task of analyzing and mapping the our data onto their own system.
