For nearly a year, you’ve enjoyed exclusive access to a powerful new tool designed to increase productivity and reduce the time required to compile market intelligence for buyers and sellers. While only a small percentage of members are using the REALTORS® Property Resource (RPR), those who are have found it beneficial to earning new business. RPR, is NAR’s new database of property data and information on all homes, commercial property and land parcels in the U.S. It was built from public records information and is integrated with active and off-market data from participating multiple listing services, including MLSPIN. As a registered RPR user, you can prepare market reports for listing presentations in minutes, use the property valuation tool to establish a recommended selling price that reflects the latest home improvements, and utilize the mapping feature to customize property and data search functions across communities or targeted to specific neighborhoods or streets. RPR also contains profile reports on local schools and has the industry’s largest database of foreclosure property. If you’re not currently using RPR in your day-to-day practice, I invite you to check out the RPR blog, or better yet attend GBAR’s next Tech Tuesday seminar, Understanding RPR, on June 19, at Regis College in Weston. We hope to see you there!
