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.
