With foreclosures on the decline, online property data company RealtyTrac has refocused its business with a new parent company ATTOM Data Solutions and an expanded multi-sourced national property database.
Previously known for its monthly foreclosure reports, Realtytrac, now ATTOM Data Solutions is expanding its offer to encompass standardized data for more than 150 million US property parcels.
The California-based company says its enhanced data warehouse of 13.9 billion rows and more than 6,000 discrete data attributes represents a footprint covering 99 per cent of the US. population.
Under the ATTOM Data Warehouse umbrella, RealtyTrac.com, Homefacts.com and HomeDisclosure.com will offer a wide variety of information including current and historical property tax assessor records, along with deed, mortgage, foreclosure and environmental risk data.
The more than 9 terabytes of data will also comprise natural and health hazards, neighborhood characteristics and other property characteristics — all mapped to a unique ATTOM ID for each property.
"The new ATTOM ID is an innovation long-overdue in the real estate data industry, linking all property-centric data from myriad sources to one unique parcel identifier," says ATTOM Data Solutions CEO Rob Barber.
"This is just one example of how the new ATTOM Data Warehouse creates value for our customers and elevates our industry.
“Under the new ATTOM Data Solutions brand, our mission as a company will continue to be increasing real estate transparency for businesses and consumers," Barber adds.
"That mission will be carried out in a variety of venues, including bulk file licenses, APIs and customized reports, along with our increasingly popular consumer websites.”
