The National Association of REALTORSĀ® (NAR) has announced that Realtors Property ResourceĀ® (RPRĀ®) hit a major milestone in March, reaching a record 178,000 in usage, up 16 percent from March 2017.
As one of the platform’s key performance indicators, RPR measures usage among several categories, from the number of individual sessions and new website visitors to account creations and webinar registrations. Among those categories, first quarter 2018 web sessions topped 3.7 million, a 27.7 percent increase year-over-year. RPR webinars witnessed a 135 percent increase in registrations; the average attendance per webinar increased by 158 percent. The number of newly-created accounts in the first quarter also tipped the scales, with more than 18,000 REALTORSĀ® registering for the platform.
RPR Mobileā¢, the flagship of the platform’s “anytime, anywhere” offerings, also experienced significant growth in the first quarter of 2018, with app downloads exceeding 402,000 by REALTORSĀ® nationwide.
“We’re delighted by the upsurge in activity among our members,” says Jeff Young, COO of RPR. “There’s a rising tide among REALTORSĀ® who want to know more about how RPR can help build their businesses. We believe 2018 will be a pivotal year for RPR’s success.”
“I make it my business to help buyers make indisputable offers, lead sellers to realistic list prices, and allow for everyone I represent to benefit from the transaction,” says Jickson Chacko, a REALTORĀ® with HomeSmart Realty Group in Denver, Colo, “and I couldn’t do it without RPR.”
