How we collect our data

Our approach to data collection is different. Because we have a representative sample of in-market asking rents, we can provide the actual data that renters experience when they're looking for a place right now. Oftentimes, statistical analysis uses old data to represent the current market based on a set of assumptions. When you utilize our data sets, you are getting an up-to-date glimpse into the current rental market. Find out more about Dwellsy's methodology here.
