How to Improve the Accuracy of CMAs with AI & Advanced Data Analysis

In the competitive realm of Central Texas real estate, precise and timely pricing can make the difference between a swift sale and a languishing listing. Traditionally, realtors have leaned on manual Comparable Market Analyses (CMAs). Now, Advanced Data Analysis, part of OpenAI's GPT Plus subscription, offers a revolutionary method to harness AI for unparalleled property valuations.

Advanced Data Analysis is a feature from OpenAI's GPT-4 suite. It allows realtors to engage in Python-based data science via simple conversational prompts. For a mere $20/month, realtors can access a tool that among hundreds of other things, exponentially enhances the precision and efficiency of CMAs.

2. Initializing the AI: Providing Essential Context:

Your CMA journey with AI starts with:

Uploading the CSV: Introduce your file containing comp data exported from your MLS.

Sample Initial Prompt: "I've uploaded a CSV containing real estate comp data, which includes attributes like square footage, lot size, bedrooms, and bathrooms. Using this data, conduct a detailed analysis for a property located at [specific address] with [X sqft living space, Y sqft lot size, Z bedrooms, and W bathrooms]."
  • Data Preparation: The AI delves into the data, standardizing fields, filling voids, and computing crucial metrics like price per square foot.

3. Advanced Analysis: Recognizing Sales Dynamics & Status

Properties can be 'sold', 'under contract', or 'for sale'. AI discerns these statuses, identifying the dynamics of closed sales and applying these insights to available properties.

Sample Prompt: "Differentiate between the listing statuses. Compute the average close-to-list price ratio from sold properties and apply this to those listed for sale."

4. Proximity-based Analysis: The Power of Location

When analyzing land parcels or properties near city centers or points of interest, proximity is crucial. This becomes exceptionally pronounced in Central Texas.

Incorporating Geolocation: If you're analyzing based on proximity, ensure your dataset includes latitude and longitude. This enables the AI to compute distances and derive insights based on nearby landmarks or city hubs.

Sample Prompt: "Given the lat-long data, analyze property values based on their proximity to the Austin city center and nearby points of interest."

5. Data Visualization: A Picture's Worth

Now, bring everything together and prompt the AI to deliver an estimated sales price for your subject property.

Sample Prompt for Predictive Pricing: "Based on the comp data analysis, proximity measures, and other insights, provide a predictive sales price for the property at [specific address]."

7. Tailored Client Reporting: Making Sense of Numbers
