    Is there a cost to use RPR?
    What is off market properties for commercial, if it is marketed by brokers?

      Hi Chayim, There is no cost as a Realtor® to create an account. RPR is a benefit of NAR membership and exclusive to Realtors®.

      When referencing “off market” we are talking about properties that are not listed as available for sale/lease by a broker on one of our partnered sites. These properties are still searchable through our public record source and contain public record information.
