These reports are usually generated by real estate brokers who often make current issues available free of charge. Those released by government agencies or nonprofit groups are sometimes available for longer periods of time. They are full of statistics and are excellent sources for documenting trends in construction, renting, and purchasing. Real estate investors and small businesses looking to locate or relocate will find them useful. Some researchers also rely on them as an indicator of general economic activity.
