RPR is proud to announce the launch of integrated MLS data within the RPR Application for the REALTORS® of the Houston Association of REALTORS® (HAR) this week. HAR executed RPR’s Data Content License Agreement in 2012 following the support of their Board of Directors. This integration will allow HAR’s 24,000 REALTORS® to access their local active and off market listing information within RPR’s member benefit system.
“As a working Realtor, I am looking forward to learning the new RPR system”, says Danny Frank, 2013 HAR Chairman. “I have been working behind the scenes with the RPR team and I’m very excited to see it being implemented at HAR. RPR has some very unique tools that Houston REALTORS® will find helpful with both sellers and buyers. It even has tools for the everyday investor as well. The RPR application brings all the tools you need to one location.”
The RPR Application offers REALTORS® expanded access to valuable property data, on over 150 million parcels of property nationwide, such as foreclosure and pre-foreclosure information, FEMA flood maps, liens, school districts, as well as neighborhood and demographic data. While REALTOR® members of HAR have had access to the RPR system since RPR’s National Launch to all REALTORS® on November 1, 2012, this integration of HAR’s MLS data will now provide enhanced functionality for features such as advanced search, mapping, trending, graphs, and menu of valuable reports, such as Comps Analysis, and Market Reports.
“RPR works best when it is partnered with proactive MLS and Associations such as HAR. Along with the value of the MLS data integration, this market level partnership connects RPR’s resources with communication, support and training systems already created by created by HAR to benefit their members,” says RPR CEO Dale Ross. “This cooperative effort epitomizes the value of REALTOR® organizations working together for the benefit of their members. RPR would like to recognize the leadership and support of CEO HAR Bob Hale, and 2013 Chairman Danny Frank.”
RPR will be offering continue training classes in cooperation with HAR. If you are an HAR member and would like to see which class is best, click here.
