Recently, we released a new Cloud CMA “new best fit” algorithm for use with the “Quick & Dirty - By Proximity” Search option to find your comparables.
Prior to this, the proximity search used to find at least the number of comparables you request and SELECT THEM ALL.
Now the search will find at least the number of comparables you request (same as before), but ONLY SELECTS THE EXACT NUMBER YOU REQUESTED.
The algorithm now attempts to pick the top comparables most like your subject property. It gets increasingly accurate the more info you enter about the subject property - like the number of beds, baths, and sqft. For the example below, we entered 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms for the Subject Property.
The end result is that you won't end up with a report with a ton of listings (like above) if you only request 10. This is especially useful for email requests or WMHW requests, where the agent never has a chance to narrow down the comparables manually before the report is sent out.
