The formation of the RPR™ is one of NAR’s Second Century Initiatives, a host of projects strategically focused on supporting the professional and personal interests of REALTORS®. The initiatives were released in May 2007, and included the creation of a parcel-centric online database that will provide real estate professionals with data on every property in the United States.
In September 2008, the RPR™ Advisory Board was formed under the direction of the REALTORS® Information Networks (RIN) Board of Directors. From its formation until May 2009, the RPR Advisory Board was assisted by MOVE, Inc. with the build-out of system function, data elements, and policy issues related to the RPR™ prototype front-end.
With the acquisition of certain assets from LPS Real Estate Group, NAR is positioned to control and direct the RPR™ system’s final build-out to the greatest benefits of its members. LPS will also be under contract to provide data center, customer care, and other services on behalf of the RPR™.
