RPR Partners With Houston REALTORS®

The Houston Association of REALTORS® announced today that it has signed an agreement with Realtors Property Resource® LLC to bring RPR’s national property database to its members. With 24,000 members, HAR is the second-largest local association of REALTORS® in the United States.

“The Houston Association of REALTORS® is pleased to bring this exciting NAR member benefit to our 24,000 members,” said HAR CEO Bob Hale in a prepared statement released Oct. 24. “The leadership of HAR has always been committed to offering the highest level of service to its members. We decided to offer RPR because we believe that the multiple sources of information provided by RPR on a national level can be of great benefit to the REALTORS® working in Houston and its numerous contiguous market areas serviced by HAR.”

Realtors Property Resource® is a wholly owned subsidiary of the National Association of REALTORS® and a benefit of NAR membership. RPR’s online real estate database provides REALTORS® with a database of 147 million U.S. property records and analytical tools to help their clients make informed decisions.

“The RPR application is a parcel-centric, national database designed to offer advanced technology tools and features that can be utilized to provide clients and customers with dynamic reports and analytics which can assist them in making better informed decisions when buying or selling properties,” said NAR CEO Dale Stinton in the Oct. 24 statement. ”The end goal of RPR is to provide NAR’s 1 million-plus REALTOR® members with valuable data sets such as tax assessment, public records, mortgages and liens, schools, flood maps, aerial and geo-point imagery, and demographics with the largest database of foreclosure data in the industry and aggregate that data with the local active and off market property information through partnerships with local, regional, and statewide MLSs to benefit their REALTOR® members.”

The announcement by Houston comes just a week before RPR plans a rollout to all members of NAR. For members whose associations have partnered with RPR, the database provides richer detail by integrating MLS information.

“The mission of HAR is to deliver the best in real estate technology to its members and to provide products and services that assist REALTORS® in maximizing property data reports and analytics to help their clients and customers,” said HAR Chair Wayne Stroman. “RPR offers HAR the ability to expand upon its overall technology offering to its REALTOR® members.”
