RPR Releases Version 1.26
The focus of version 1.26 of the Realtors Property Resource application is a Beta release of the RPR Dashboard. This feature is designed to assist Associations and MLSs to better serve their membership with information from RPR. Additionally, this release also includes a new multi-unit map bubble in the Comp Analysis and Sales Comparison Analysis tools. This feature will make it easier to locate appropriate units within multi-unit property during comps searching. RPR also added enhancements to user-entered notes in Property Reports.

RPR Begins Beta Testing on RPR Dashboard for Associations and MLSs
With the release of Version 1.26, RPR begins Beta testing of the RPR Dashboard for Associations and MLSs. This process includes several volunteer Task Forces designed to test features and functionality and provide feedback to RPR’s Development Team over the next few months. Beta testing includes staff from 12 State Associations, 24 Local Associations and 20 MLSs from across the country. The main features of the Dashboard include:
- Dashboard Summary and Reports
- Market Analytics
- Statistics on RPR Usage
- Status Data Updates within RPR
- Communication Resources
- Training Opportunities
We would like to thank the many volunteers who continue to assist RPR in developing expanded tools and features for all RPR REALTOR® Constituents (Agents, Brokers, Commercial, Appraisers, Associations and MLS/CIEs).
RPR Federal Economic Area Reports in Development
In tandem with Association Dashboard, RPR is developing Legislative Resources for use by Association staff and NAR’s Federal Political Coordinators (FPCs.) RPR’s Federal Economic Area Report will be made available in Q4 2013, and is designed for FPCs to use for in-district meetings with their congressperson. The reports will compliment housing statistics which are already provided by NAR Legislative staff, by focusing on the consumer tapestry data, demographic, lifestyle information, and economic trending which is the foundation of RPR’s Commercial Application, which was launched last year. RPR staff has been working with a Task Force comprised of State and Local Association staff and REALTOR® volunteers from 37 states.
