The National Market Sentiment Survey

Twice a year, RCLCO polls our extensive network of knowledgeable contacts to ask them what they think about the current and future state of the real estate industry. Upon analyzing the results, our team members then release reports, evaluating the trends in sentiment across professions, geographies, and other variables.
