CoreLogic, headquartered in Irvine, CA, is a property information, analytics, and services provider. It markets to real estate and mortgage finance, insurance, capital markets, transportation, and government sectors. The company is located in seven countries, including Australia, Canada, India, Mexico, New Zealand, the U.K., and the U.S.
Employees strive to help clients identify and manage growth opportunities, improve performance, and mitigate risk with CoreLogic’s comprehensive property and related financial databases. This is achieved in four different ways: unique data, analytics, workflow technology, and advisory and managed services—including property tax management, flood services, staff augmentation, loan modification and foreclosure audits, and consulting.
Real Estate Focus
With the recent bump in real estate transactions, CoreLogic continues to focus on this sector of its customer pool. The company maintains 99 percent coverage of all residential transactions in the U.S, access to over 3.5 billion public documents covering 99.8 percent of the U.S. population.
A number of tools are offered for real estate professionals, such as multiple listing technology, AgentAchieve business management software, Jenark property management software, and MARKETrends Premium.
MARKETrends Premium is a research tool that combines public records with local multiple listing data. CoreLogic joined forces with RealEstate Business Intelligence—a subsidiary of MRIS that provides real estate data, analytics, and business intelligence solutions—to create the program in 2013.
An intuitive dashboard and interactive charts provide real estate professionals with unlimited information to service their customers. For example, users can view activity trends and reports for an entire multiple listing region or a local neighborhood by comparing zip codes, cities, or counties and then segmenting results by a variety of home characteristics.
“MARKETrends Premium is visually appealing, easy to use, and reveals trends that empower agents to shape smart decisions by their home buyers and sellers. Our ultimate mission is to empower agents and their clients in just that manner,” shares Steve Masters, director of product management, CoreLogic.
In February 2014, CoreLogic announced a deal that would provide MARKETrends Premium to over 30,000 real estate professionals in GA with a signed agreement between First Multiple Listing Service, Inc. (FMLS).
FMLS is a data services provider serving real estate professionals in GA. Started in 1957, today it maintains over 2,000 offices and serves more than 27,000 real estate agents. The FMLS listing database contains more than 36,000 active listings located in GA and the Southeast.
Members of FMLS are provided with a variety of tools from training to technology. Benefits include an electronic document management system, printable access to important forms, credit training classes, technical support, monthly statistic reports, a subscription to a monthly newsletter, and a member perks discount program.
MARKETrends Premium provides even more data to leverage successful real estate transactions for FMLS’ members. “MARKETrends Premium is truly configurable at the agent level, so our members can easily access market intelligence that matters most to them. By sharing up-to-date market trends via presentations, social media, email, blogs, or newsletters our members can deepen their role as their clients’ trusted advisor,” shares Cantey Davis, president, FMLS.
“MARKETrends Premium singularly delivers statistics based on both MLS data, plus recorded sales through each county courthouse, providing agents with a unique 360 degree view of the market. Armed with these powerful tools, FMLS members enjoy a deeper knowledge of the markets they serve, the insight needed to impress and win new clients, and the intelligence to effectively navigate and close more deals,” agrees Masters.
MARKETrends Premium is available at a monthly cost of $23.99. An annual subscription at $199.88, representing a 30 percent savings over purchasing it monthly, is also available. A free, 14-day trial is offered for the monthly or the annual subscription. Interested parties with a valid MLS membership can subscribe at Marketrendspremium.com. SW
