FAQ’s for Xima

1.) What makes Xima different from other property search programs? Xima is the only tool that allows you to search for residential properties by equity.

2.) How does Xima determine Equity or D. Equity? Xima determines equity by looking at the market value of the property (market value is determined by calculating the median price of the properties within + or -10% square feet, .5 miles, that have sold in the last 12 months) and comparing market value to the total debt that is recorded for the property on Public Records.
The formula is:
Debt Equity = 100% * (Market Value – Total Debt)/Market Value
3.) What is P. Equity? What we are trying to determine here is if there is equity based on what the asking price for the home is vs what has sold recently.
The formula is:
Potential Equity = 100% * (Market Value – Listing Price)/Market Value
4.) What is A. Equity? What we are trying to determine here is if there is any equity in the property based what the active comps are selling for compared to what the listing price is.
The formula is:
Active Equity = 100% * (Active Value – Listing Price) / Active Value
5.) How often does Xima update the data? The data is updated on a weekly basis.

6.) How much does it cost to purchase one county? $80 is the standard price. $60 if you have a promotion code.

7.) If I purchase more than one county can I get a discount? Yes you can, $149 is the standard price for all counties (we have 24 so far),  Only $99 if you have a promotion code.

  1. In the old XimaUsa interface, you used to be able to search for Pre-Foreclosures that were NOT Sold; there was a tab for "Sold" and you would select "NO."

    I can't find that tab in the new interface; therefore, when I look at pre-foreclosures, I'm looking at properties that have been bought by other investors already. Any ideas on how I can avoid that?
