The Tucson Association of Realtors recently launched a monthly scorecard to highlight market trends "and outline a broader perspective of the region’s overall real estate and housing market."

"Using mostly raw data, the objective is to identify emerging trends in various sub-sectors,” said Tucson Association of Realtors CEO Philip Tedesco in a news release. “In a way, it is an early warning sign of significant changes coming in the market.”

Scorecard collects data on components such as home sales, prices, listings, foreclosures, land sales, mortgage rates, new construction and unemployment.

The publication has included sources such as Cushman & Wakefield/PICOR; Bright Future Real Estate Research; Southern Arizona Mortgage Lenders Association; Pima County; Chapman Lindsey Commercial Real Estate Services; and Pima County Real Estate Research Council.

TAR aggregates the data but does not interpret any statistics. The TAR Scorecard is available online at:
