RealtyTrac (www.realtytrac.com), the nation’s leading source for comprehensive housing data, and RE/MAX (http://www.remax.com) today announced a new agreement that allows RE/MAX agents and their clients to have real-time access to RealtyTrac’s nationwide foreclosure database of default, auction and bank-owned properties, as well as comprehensive neighborhood and housing data from RealtyTrac’s proprietary Homefacts data (www.homefacts.com).
The strategic data enhancement agreement allows remax.com and its affiliated web properties to leverage RealtyTrac’s Homefacts local information to enhance current for-sale listings with neighborhood data points, including school information, neighborhood points of interest, crime statistics, demographics and environmental data. Additionally, RealtyTrac will allow an integrated search and subscription access to its comprehensive database of 1.1 million properties to RE/MAX users. The RealtyTrac foreclosure data is now live on the Remax.com website as a first phase of implementation, with the Homefacts neighborhood and local information to follow.
“This is an exciting relationship between RE/MAX, LLC and RealtyTrac,” said RealtyTrac Vice President Alan J. Mao. “We believe that a complete perspective is essential in making a truly informed real-estate decision. Now, at remax.com, clients and agents will have access to a comprehensive view of the property marketplace, including 1.1 million foreclosures and soon the neighborhood and local characteristics that truly drive real estate decision-making.”
“In the ever changing real estate market, we’re constantly enhancing our web experience to provide consumers with helpful data for making informed decisions, and our agents with competitive advantages,” said Tim Drouillard, Vice President, Information Technology at RE/MAX, LLC. “We’re delighted to integrate RealtyTrac’s extensive database into remax.com and look forward to a long relationship.”
