When are new data and reports released?

Monthly market activity reports are released on the 10th day of each month at 10:00 a.m.  If the 10th occurs on a weekend or holiday, the reports will be published at 10:00am on the next business day.  Publishing on the 10th allows agents to update their sold listings within a few days after the end of the previous month.  It also allows data to be reviewed and cleansed to provide accurate results.


How much does an rbiEXPERT subscription cost?

Less than a tank of gas. When we did our initial market research and looked at the price points our competitors charge and the long-term commitments required, we were shocked.  One national provider charged over $100 dollars a month and apparently scrapes listing info from public websites as its data source. Another provider requires the subscriber to download the application on his/her computer and re-install when any new features are added - and also costs more than $100/month.

We decided to go with low monthly pricing, no sign-up fees, and no long-term commitments - finally give MRIS customers access to business-changing statistics without breaking their budget. The regular subscription price for rbiEXPERT Monthly is $23.99/month.   Regular pricing for rbiEXPERT Annual is $199.88/year, which is a 30% savings over the monthly subscription.

How do I share a link or chart on my Facebook business page instead of my personal profile?

Unfortunately for those agents that prefer to post links to their Facebook 'fan' page, the 'Share on FB' button will post content to their personal page by default.  This is a function of how Facebook has elected to configure their fan and personal page permissions and is not under the control of 3rd party websites like  That said, here are two suggestions:

(Note, these are relevant to those users that have been set up as "admins" on their company "fan" page)

Option 1:

1. Log in to Facebook with your personal Facebook account (or whichever account that has been configured as an admin for your 'fan' page.

2. Go to your 'fan' page (either by searching for it, or by clicking the link on the left-side menu).

3. Look under the "Admins" module on the menu on the right side of the page.  Click on the link that states "Use Facebook as {insert your company name here]"

4. As long as this session remains open (and you don't close your browser window), you are effectively using the web and FB as your 'page'. 

5. Open up the RBI website, navigate to the page you're interested in posting on your wall or go to the chart you've customized, and click the 'Share' button.  This should do the trick.

Option 2:

An alternative that we'd recommend - Don't go through the steps listed above, simply open up two tabs in your browser.  In one tab, go to the content you're interested in sharing.  In the second tab, go to your 'fan' profile page.  Copy the URL from the RBI tab, paste the link in the "What's on your mind?" bar of your page, and let Facebook do the rest.  If you are set up as an Admin for your page, the content you've added to Facebook will be rendered as though it was shared by your 'page', not by your personal Facebook account.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to use our 'Contact Us' form and we can walk you through the process. If you have any other paths to get this done, we're all ears - please pass them along.  Remember, the challenge inherent in the way Facebook 'pages' are configured is common when interacting with any 3rd party sites, it's not just your pals at RBI putting out the hoops for you to jump through!

What happens when a ZIP code straddles multiple counties?

The US Postal Service (USPS) database is used to determine each Zip Code and its corresponding city name. When a Zip Code straddles multiple cities, the USPS standard is followed and the default city name is used on the report. However, the data for the entire Zip Code is in the report regardless of how many city names may refer to the Zip Code.


Do all zip code reports contain data every month?

Due to the lack of market activity, a Zip Code report may not display data for a given month.
