They analyzed mortgage applications within the US to create its “Pre-Mover Housing Index,” a measure of the proportion of homes likely to sell in a market.

According to Credit.com, the index is based on the ratio of mortgage applications that include an estimated loan settlement date to the number of homes in a given market. Mortgages that have a so-called “pre-mover” flag, like a settlement date, close within 30 days 62.2% of the time – from ATTOM’s data.

In the study, an index above 100 in a given market means an above-average ratio of homes will be sold there compared to the national average. The data company looked at 120 metropolitan areas that had at least 100,000 single-family homes and condos. Daren Blomquist, senior vice president of ATTOM commented, “those that scored the highest combined affordable homes with access to jobs.”
