About Pricing Nation
The purchase of a home is historically the largest investment one will make in one's life. However, due to recent volatility from the Credit and Housing Crisis, home values are not always likely to increase. To ensure that buyers and sellers are confident in their investment decisions, Pricing Nation has developed a portfolio of regression based models that forecast housing price changes at the MSA, zip, and house level. These models are highly statistically significant as they were built using local housing demand/supply and macroeconomic data from the last ten years, which saw extreme upward and downward movements. Of particular note is that Pricing Nation's forecasting model would have anticipated the severe downturn in Boston MSA home values in August 2006, a full twelve months before the actual downturn hit in August 2007, and 16 months before the U.S. officially entered a recession.*

Pricing Nation is offering its individual home value forecast reports for an introductory price of $19.99 per home (regular price $49.99 per home).  Our “The Home Investment Report Card,” displays the actual prediction for the future change in value for your selected home taking into account the unique characteristics of each home and the surrounding area. In addition, it also provides grades for the local and national factors impacting home value, and outlines the significance of each factor toward future changes. “The Home Investment Report” card is designed to be easy to use for all homebuyers and sellers as they make one of the biggest decisions of their lives.

Pricing Nation has initially launched its product in the Boston MSA and is expanding its offerings to other cities in the near future.
