CoreLogic®, a leading residential property information, analytics and services provider, and Metropolitan Regional Information Systems (MRIS®) recently announced an agreement to integrate products and services from RealEstate Business Intelligence (RBI®) into Realist®, the leading public record solution for real estate professionals. RBI is a subsidiary of MRIS that provides real estate data, analytics and business intelligence solutions.
Beginning in April 2013, Realist customers will have direct access to RBI’s interactive charts, in-depth statistical reports and creative marketing solutions, substantially upgrading Realist’s analytical capabilities. Combining MLS data with Realist’s comprehensive national tax database and RBI’s data visualization and social marketing capabilities has created a unique research tool that more clearly illustrates real estate market trends.
“The explosion of real estate content on the Internet means homebuyers and sellers are well aware of trends and developments in the marketplace,” says MRIS President and CEO David Charron. “As a result, real estate professionals need deeper market knowledge and insight in order to serve their customers effectively and stay a step ahead. We believe this new research tool will present a formidable resource for our customers—and for America’s one million real estate professionals.”
The agreement marks the first time RBI solutions have been made available outside the RBI customer base, which expanded in 2012 to include My Florida Regional MLS and Arizona Regional MLS. CoreLogic customers will have the option to subscribe to rbiEXPERT, the premium RBI market intelligence package, at either the individual user level or as an MLS-wide site license. CoreLogic and MRIS have also agreed to integrate RBI tools with other popular CoreLogic applications, such as the InnoVia™ MLS system.
“Extending our business relationship with MRIS provides a rare opportunity for customers of CoreLogic and RBI,” says Chris Bennett, vice president of Real Estate Solutions for CoreLogic.
“This relationship between two leaders in real estate analytics promises to create a whole new generation of statistical solutions for our users. We are just starting to explore all the ways we can combine our technologies.”
