Market Pulse History

This week we don’t have the weekly RO data available to report national and market level numbers or to evaluate previous forecasts and present new forecasts. We will return to the regular RO data reporting and forecasting next week. Thank you for your patience. 

In the meantime, we’re providing 2020 historical data for each of the 20 markets we track. This was requested by one of our readers and hopefully it will be useful to many of you. Feel free to send content suggestions like this anytime to justin.holman@aftermarketanalytics.com.
