Market Rankings Gauges
An easy way to identify the hottest markets is to simply look for those scoring in the highest percentiles compared to all the other markets. A score of "90" means this market is higher than 90% of all markets for that particular criteria or score.
Master Score - This is the best single indicator (if you only want to look at ONE scoring element). The "Master Score" is a proprietary algorithm that integrates all data into a single indicator.
TAPS Combined Score - This is the Technical Analysis Point Score ranking after combining the local (city-level) market with the State, Regional and National TAPS scores.
TAPS - Local Score - This is the Technical Analysis Point Score ranking for ONLY that particular city. It ignores any impact State, Regional or National market TAPS scores may have on the local market.
Momentum Score - This gauge uses the STAR indicator tool to measure and rank each market based on its momentum.
1-Yr THAR - This gauge ranks all markets based on its 'raw' Total Home Appreciation Rate over the previous year.
4-Yr THAR - This gauge ranks all markets based on its 'raw' Total Home Appreciation Rate over the previous four years.
