Justin-Hampton’s Microsoft Access Database Market Pricing Tool.
As a challenge to myself to see if I could recreate a market pricing tool, I spent several months working on an access database to create a basic market matching tool.  The database is very, very simple – but it does work exceptionally well to create market matches and market match reports for business partners.  The software is totally free, and I’m happy to help you get set up with it.  The link to download the database can be found here:  Download the Market Pricing Tool
