Realtors Property Resource nationwide Nov. 1

WASHINGTON – Oct. 16, 2012 – The National Association of Realtors® (NAR) announced that Realtors Property Resource® (RPR) – a property database with technology tools and features for reports and analytics – will be accessible to Realtor members nationwide starting Nov. 1, 2012.

Access will give all association members one-stop access to public data and other information, NAR says. The public cannot access RPR – only Realtors.

The online system covers 147 million properties and offers information on mortgage and tax liens; school data, test scores and parent reviews; mapping by school zone, neighborhood, zip code, city, FEMA etc.; aerial photography and street-level views; Census, demographic and lifestyle data; and neighborhood information.

If a local MLS chooses to participate with RPR, listings can be accessed directly through RPR along with data relevant to that home, such as refined property facts, comparables and a Realtor Valuation Model (RVM). The RVM offers a snapshot of the home’s value based on RPR data.

NAR created a website that offers
more information about RPR. To sign up or use RPR, go to the Realtors Property Resource website. RPR also hosts a blog.

Florida is approved for an online RPR course and a class that includes CE credit.
