Last week, real estate data host Rapattoni fell victim to a ransomware attack. This unfortunate and crippling situation has left thousands of agents without access to vital property sales and listing information.
Throughout the country, some REALTORS® are faced with the hurdle of not being able to add new property listings, make price adjustments, or even access the latest property information for showings.
As agents, brokers, Associations and MLSs scramble for workarounds and solutions, RPR® (Realtors Property Resource®) is here to help!
How Rapattoni users can access their MLS data through RPR
As a partner to all Rapattoni markets, RPR is in a unique position to bridge the gap and offer an alternative access point to crucial MLS data.
RPR is up-to-date with MLS data, for Rapattoni partnered markets, through August 8th, 2023, as well as containing a depth of off-market and historical data, which we hope will minimize the disruption caused by this recent event. This applies to both current RPR users and REALTORS® that have not yet created an RPR account.
Here’s how REALTORS® can navigate the Rapattoni situation by using RPR:
Creating your RPR account: If you’re not an RPR user or don’t have an account yet, follow the step-by-step instructions in this printable guide to get up and running on RPR.
