Centralia, WA – MLS Data worthy of tracking

Spreadsheets are my thing.  (click to enlarge)  I keep local stats from Centralia, Chehalis, Napavine and surrounding areas on a spreadsheet I titled “Ratios”  and update them monthly.  My primary goal is to keep myself updated and informed on our local market.  I use this spreadsheet to calculate and log the number of active single family homes, the percentage in Pending status (under contract) and number of closed sales.  I started documenting this data on spreadsheets in 2006.  On February 1st, 2011, Centralia has 185 Active single family listings, 30 homes in Pending status (13.9%) and 10 sales closed during the previous 30 day window. The percentage of pending homes has slowly increased since August of this year.  This is one of several spreadsheets I log data into routinely.  I also keep close track of local REO and Shortsale activity, as those can be an indicator of the overall health of our housing market.  I am always looking for another project.  What data do you find worthy of tracking?
