RPR Mobile Welcomes Open House Data … and Other Important Updates

Planning this week’s Broker caravan or open house tour just got a whole lot easier, thanks to a significant upgrade to the RPR app.

A new “Open House” feature joins the ranks of the app’s other notable home screen displays, such as the number of For Lease, Distressed, Recently Sold, New Listings, and For Sale properties. Within the Open House search, a map appears with a yellow box around the property pin. From there, users can:

  1. View a count of open houses in your market on the home screen.
  2. See open house information highlighted with properties in your search results.
  3. View the next open house date and time on the thumbnail of the property.
  4. Set your search filters to show only properties with open houses.
  5. Use advanced search filtering to search by the date of any open houses in your area.

RPR account holders can now turn on Traffic Count layers without losing visibility of their search results. Property pins will appear behind the traffic pins when applicable and will be grayed out.

    ESRI data reaches major milestone––now, over one billion data points

Now, ESRI data has been refreshed within RPR to include up-to-date housing, economic, spending and demographic information. This data is used in RPR’s Neighborhood Reports, Residential and Commercial Trade Area Reports, and thematic maps.

    Plus, you can see trends and track specific household data using the data and thematic overlays RPR provides. The following illustration shows just how in depth you can engage with RPR and ZIPs using our built-in overlays and thematic maps.

          Other Key Updates

          Population Change Indicator Updated

          (Source: Policy Map)

          Neighborhood population facts now reflect the most current data available (2010-Present).  Commercial users will also see new population growth rate options (2010-2016 and 2016-2021) when running market analysis searches or creating reports.

            Sold Date and Source on Off-Market Properties

            RPR search results and property details will now feature the sold date and data source (MLS or public records) next to the status flag on off-market properties so users can easily identify how recently a property was sold.

              Seller’s Report Distinguishes Property Type From Listing Data

              RPR’s Seller’s Report now displays a listing’s property type from MLS data, versus public records. The improvement will maximize the number of listings returned on RPR reports and aid with decision analysis when pricing a property for consumers.
