Ask Denise: Special Report vs. MLS email

Any agent can pull current listings off the MLS and send them on. Very few would take the time to create a neighborhood appreciation report, for example, or an analysis of market times and list-to-sales price ratios. Which do you think would be more impressive to a potential buyer?
