Reyne Stapelmann: Realtors Property Resource Now Available to SBAOR Members

The Santa Barbara Association of Realtors is pleased to announce that it is now providing to its members Realtors Property Resource, the National Association of Realtors' exclusive online real estate database.

RPR’s core mission is to reinforce Realtors’ value in the marketplace by keeping them ahead of the technology curve and better able to serve today’s technology-empowered consumer.

Training for members began this past week and will enable us to provide more up-to-date information and insightful data arrangements to clients.

RPR provides the following information for more than 166 million parcels in the United States:

» MLS/CIE-provided information (from participating MLSs)

» Public records

» Tax assessment information

» Details of prior transactions and sales

» Dynamic mapping: school zones, neighborhoods, zip codes, cities, etc.

» Nationwide school data, test scores, parental reviews, and ratings

» Mortgage and lien data

» FEMA flood maps

» Neighborhood information

» Foreclosure, pre-foreclosure, REO and default information

» Plat maps

» Demographic, psychographic, census and lifestyle information

» Consumer spending and tapestry data (commercial)

» Geospatial data including aerial photography, street level and bird's-eye views

Enhanced search features allow nationwide property searches, as well as market-to-market comparisons. Realtors can create custom reports on specific properties as well as neighborhoods and market activity.

RPR is a member benefit and included in dues paid to the National Association of Realtors. Only Realtors can access the information available in RPR — there is no consumer or public access. RPR is a wholly owned subsidiary corporation of the National Association of Realtors.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
