Forecasting Products

While historical market data and recent market activity help to make today’s business decisions, these methods have limits. It’s tough to drive forward while looking in the rear-view mirror. An even larger issue is that national and global economic factors increasingly shape local markets. Forest2Market’s forecasting products connect those national and global factors to your local market to provide you with the insights needed to make tomorrow’s business decisions.

High-Quality Data

Our forecasts are powered by the highest quality market data available, which is derived from the details of over 40 million actual transactions per year. This means there is a direct benchmark value in our forecasts rather than a relative index of market dynamics.

Large Datasets

Large sets of very granular data allow the forecaster to find strong correlations, thereby reducing forecast deviation. The data we collect and the methods we employ to store it ensure forecasts with small deviations.
