July 2015 RPR Product Release
On July 28, 2015, RPR® released version 1.42, marking RPR’s 43rd major release since 2010. In this release, RPR introduced a number of enhancements including:
- “REALTOR® Only” (Confidential Fields) Display: Based on numerous market requests, RPR now supports the display of REALTOR® only listing data (Confidential Fields) as a field level display option for RPR Partnering MLSs. This feature is a key component for RPR View™—RPR’s data display permissions program. Through local and regional authorizations, RPR View™ currently supports the display of Active and Historical listings for more than 590,000 REALTORS® nationwide.
- Economic Area Report & Commercial Trade Area Report: The unemployment data found in the federal and local versions of the Economic Area Report, as well as the Commercial Trade Area Report now contains monthly unemployment data, so recipients of these reports can better compare employment trends in their area.
- Seller’s Report: Clearer explanations have been added to the “Recommended Pricing Strategy” section of the Sellers Report. This enhancement is designed to help report recipients better understand the properties and prices reflected.

RPR Mobile™ Optimized for iPad and Android Tablets
With July’s release the Product and Development teams completed the latest version of RPR Mobile™, which adds support for iPad and Android Tablets. This latest version will be available in both the App Store and Google Play Store in the coming weeks.
Tablet users will notice the user interface is similar to the phone version, but includes an optimized layout for the larger devices.

Enhanced features like searching on the dynamic maps, previewing property details and reviewing reports also allow for increased engagement with clients.
