Realtors have long relied on Revenue Variances Manager (RVM) estimates to help them price homes correctly. RVM estimates are a way of estimating the difference in sales prices between different neighborhoods and help realtors determine how much they should charge for a home in a given neighborhood.

What is RVM?

Revenue Variances Manager (RVM) is a powerful tool that allows users to manage multiple versions of the Revenue programming language on the same system. RVM was created by Matz and is released under the GNU General Public License.

RVM's estimated values allow it to make informed decisions about which version of Revenue estimated to use. RVM uses two methods to estimate its own version number:

1. The method used by RVM when it is first installed or when you run RVM --version. 

2. The method used when you run RVM install.  

Both methods return an integer number. Our article, "What are RVM Estimated Values and how does it Matter to Realtors," will show you what this number means and how it affects your projects.

How to calculate RVM and why it's important

There are many reasons why a realtor may want to calculate RVM real estate values. One reason is to estimate the value of a home that may be available for sale. RVM real estate estimates can also be used to determine how much a home is worth in comparison to other homes in the area. Additionally, RVM estimates can be used as part of the marketing process to entice buyers into viewing a property.

In order to calculate RVM estimates, realtors must first understand what it is and how it works. RVM stands for "Realtors Valuation Model". It is a mathematical formula that allows realtors to compare one home value against another. The formula takes into account such factors as size, location, condition, and features of each home.

The main purpose of using RVM estimates is to help realtors price properties correctly. When using RVM values, realtors are not limited only to selling homes; they can also use them when negotiating contracts or doing due diligence on potential purchases. As with most things in life, calculating an accurate RVM value takes some time and effort on the part of the realtor. However, it can prove invaluable in helping clients find their ideal property and make sound financial decisions when buying or selling a home.

When should you consider a new RVM?

The answer to this question depends on your specific situation and needs. However, there are some general tips that can help you decide when it's time for a new RVM: 

-If your RVM is no longer providing accurate readings of relative humidity (RH) or temperature, it's time to replace it. RH meters and thermometers typically last around 3 years before they need to be replaced. 

-If your RVM has failed in the past, it may not be reliable in the future. Make sure to get a replacement if your RVM fails in the future. 

-If you're planning on buying or building a house soon, make sure to factor in the cost of a new RVM into your budget.

What are the risks of a low RVM?

RVM ( Rider-Weighted Mean ) is a calculation used by lenders in order to estimate the average loan amount a borrower could qualify for. The lower the RVM, the more likely the lender is to approve a loan application. 

However, there are several risks associated with having a low RVM. First and foremost, borrowers who have low RVM scores may be less likely to be approved for a loan because lenders view them as being at a higher risk of defaulting on their loan. Additionally, if interest rates decrease or the market changes and the RVM decreases significantly, borrowers may not be able to afford their monthly payments if they have a low RVM. Finally, having a low RVM can also affect a borrower's credit score negatively.


Real estate agents are always looking for ways to increase their income, and one way they can do that is by increasing the value of their properties. One way to do this is by using RVM estimated values. RVM estimated values are a calculation that realtors use to determine the market value of a property. They take into account factors such as square footage, lot size, and the number of bedrooms and bathrooms. Knowing your RVM estimated values can help you increase the value of your property and make more money in the process.
