Understanding metrics

Under metrics, why do you sometimes show a “>” & sometimes a “<” ???

At first I thought it might be so higher is better, but I couldn’t see that being applied.

The thing about metrics is that there is no “good or bad”. At least, not from how beestat perceives things. If you want your cool setpoint to be 60°F then who am I to judge? The “> X homes” is just meant to be something to help show where you stand. The logic here is quite literally “if there are more homes to the left of you, show a greater than, else show a less than”.

The only " problem" is (it’s not really a problem), when you switch from Global to Nearby or type of home, the direction of the “<” / “>” sometimes changes, making it slightly more difficult to compare.

Not a big deal.
