Reports On Housing was started in 2004 as a way to communicate what buyers, sellers and real estate professionals were experiencing in the trenches, tracking demand, inventory, distressed homes and market data at both the county and city levels.  Steven Thomas, a California Real Estate Broker with decades of real estate experience and a degree in Quantitative Economics and Decision Sciences from the University of California, San Diego, developed Reports On Housing and is considered an expert in real estate housing trends. 

Reports On Housing has been utilized and quoted by the Orange County Register, Los Angeles Times, the San Diego Tribune, the Wall Street Journal, Fortune, USA Today, Bloomberg, ABC, CBS and NBC television reporters, Cox Cable Television, KNX1070, KFIAM640, blogs and Internet news sites.

Steven ThomasFounder - Reports On Housing

Utilizing his Quantitative Economics and Decision Sciences background coupled with his years of experience in the real estate field as a REALTOR®, broker, and executive of a multi-office real estate franchise, Steven Thomas delivers a report that captures the true essence of the current real estate market.

Most economic housing reports analyze and discuss closed sales data, a look at the market through the rearview mirror. Closed sales are a reflection of pending sales that are put together 30 to 60-days prior to the closing. Reports on Housing’s report is a close look at supply and demand, the current listing inventory, current pending sale activity, and the expected market time for homes placed onto the market today. It is more of a current real estate market dashboard than a look in the rearview mirror.

“Every consumer, real estate professional, and analyst needs to understand the key differences in market conditions at a very local level.  The Orange County Housing Report is one such report that I eagerly look forward to receiving.  The report helps me digest and assess the latest developments in Southern California.”

Dr. Lawrence Yun, Chief Economist for the National Association of REALTORS®

When you sign up for one of our subscriptions, you will receive an introductory email with the latest report at our earliest convenience (note: if you sign up over the weekend, you will receive your first report the following Monday). Each report comes out every other week, for a total of 26 reports each year.

No contract or commitment unless you sign up with the yearly subscription. Monthly subscriptions can cancel anytime. Yearly subscriptions may be canceled at any time; however, because it is offered at a discounted rate, you will not receive a prorated refund unless with valid reason.

Unfortunately, we do not offer bundle pricing for our reports. Each report is $15/month or $150/annually, meaning if you bought two monthly subscriptions from us, it would cost you $30 per month. Still a bargain!

When posting to your website or personal social media platforms, we ask that you use the excerpt link, located at the bottom of each report. See example below. In addition, you may post information from the summary page of the report. Any other content in our reports is not permitted to be posted online because it waters down the need for a paid subscription. As always, you are welcome to have interested parties contact you personally for the full report. 

Absolutely. You are welcome to distribute the report to your client base as long as your distribution lists do not include (intentionally) other agents, brokers, lenders, real estate professionals, etc. If you think another agent is violating this policy, we kindly ask that you notify us via email at info@reportsonhousing.com.

I have received it for 3 years now and will never stop the subscription.

Steven’s Monthly Newsletters that provide a detailed analysis and related charts of our Orange County Housing Market have proven to be very valuable to our Residential Real Estate Company. After reviewing the true market conditions in our area, it has aided many Regency Real Estate Broker’s customers numerous times on deciding when the best time would be to sell or buy real estate. I strongly recommend subscribing to Steven’s reasonably priced on-line newsletter! It’s fabulous!

Julie Zetland, Regency Real Estate Brokers

If you are in the Real Estate field in Orange County CA Steven’s Housing Report is a must have!

Ola Strandqvist, RE/MAX

There is no better report on the Orange County Real Estate Market than Steven Thomas’s “Reports On Housing”! Market Time, as developed by Thomas is the most accurate picture of Current Demand for residential Real Estate. Thomas’s use of a “snapshot” of new Pending Sales is far more useful than reports utilizing Closed Sales data.
