CoreLogic announced that membership in its Data Co-op exceeded 100 MLS organizations, including Realcomp II Ltd., Michigan’s largest REALTOR-owned MLS with approximately 11,000 subscribers from more than 2,100 real estate offices. The CoreLogic Data Co-op facilitates data-sharing relationships among MLSs to provide real estate professionals access to listings from local, neighboring and relocation markets in the U.S and Canada.
Having launched the program to its subscribers in April 2013, Realcomp provides the additional information benefits of Data Co-op as a service for its subscribers, the REALTORS of Southeastern Michigan. “The leadership of Realcomp is committed to providing the advanced tools and property information our subscribers need to better serve their clients,” said Realcomp CEO Karen Kage. “Data Co-op offers a new way for Realcomp subscribers to extend their reach and improve service to clients.” Realcomp also uses Matrix and Realist by CoreLogic, and recently joined CoreLogic Partner InfoNet.
Data Co-op features an intuitive, map-centric interface for searching both local and cooperative real estate listings. Data Co-op also provides valuable property data and reports such as RealAVM valuations, tax records, listing history, nearby schools, neighborhood data, community demographics, real estate trends, foreclosure information and more—all in a consolidated dashboard view for each listing. The number of data fields supported by Data Co-op has more than doubled since its inception and incorporates the Real Estate Standards Organization’s (RESO) newly expanded data set, making it fast and easy for almost any MLS to join the program.
“The capabilities of Data Co-op continue to expand, attracting leading organizations like Realcomp to the platform,” said Chris Bennett, general manager of CoreLogic MLS Solutions. “By combining MLS data and diverse property information with proprietary CoreLogic reports and analytical tools, Data Co-op offers real estate professionals a unique application to research real estate and deliver the information today’s homebuyers demand.”
