350,000 New Movers & New Homeowners Added Weekly
New Movers and New Homeowners are acquired through multiple sources including register of deeds records, new phone connects, utility connections, and self-reported information from websites offering services to those moving. When one purchases a new home, the transaction is recorded at the local county register of deeds' office. In the majority of states, these records are made available to the general public and are obtained and incorporated into the database. New phone and utility connection information is provided by those companies whenever a new connection is made. On average, records in the New Mover / New Homeowner file have been in their homes for 3 to 12 weeks when they first appear in the New Mover & New Homeowner database, with most being in their new residence between 30 and 60 days.
Government sources report their data on different schedules. Some counties provide the information every week, some counties report once a month, and some counties report whenever it is most convenient for them. This can result in a wide range of purchase dates being made available in each week?s data load, as well as fluctuations in counts from week to week.
Records in the New Mover / New Homeowner file have not been sourced using the USPS National Change of Address (NCOA) product. License agreements with the US Postal Service prohibit the use of NCOA in any way to create a new mover database.
Our multi-sourcing methodology ensures that our data is exceptionally accurate and comprehensive.
The database is continuously compiled and updated on the application weekly.
