RPR’s core mission is to provide valuable tools to REALTORS® in order to maintain the REALTOR’S® position in the center of the real estate transaction. In partnership with a Task Force of Commercial leadership and the Charlotte Region Commercial Board of REALTORS®, the RPR Product Team has been in the process of building a Commercial Application. This database leverages the core functionality of the current RPR system, which is available to over 500,000 REALTORS® and expand that value to NAR members within the Commercial industry.
RPR Commercial aggregates tax assessment and public records information, stand alone mortgages and liens, foreclosure data, demographics and census information, ESRI Tapestry data, along with licensed data from Commercial Information Exchanges (CIEs) and MLSs to create dynamic search and report features for REALTORS® to share with clients and customers. RPR expanded Commercial features will include:
- Business Opportunities Analysis
- Detailed Location Analysis and Reporting
- Property Information Search and Reporting
- Market Analysis-Customer Concentrations
- Market Leakage Reports
- Demographic, Lifestyle and Consumer Segmentation
- Trade Area and Analysis Reporting
- Drive Time Ring Analysis
- Thematic Mapping with Custom Search tools
