Realtors Property Resource has signed two new licensing deals to bolster the information available in its national property database.

A National Association of Realtors subsidiary, RPR collects national, regional and local data that allows NAR’s 1 million members to access property and market trend information for more than 160 million U.S. properties. In markets where RPR has partnered with multiple listing services, users also have access to active and sold listing data through RPR that can be used to generate reports and property valuations for clients.

The latest association to agree to feed its listing data to RPR is the Austin Board of Realtors, which owns and operates its own MLS, the Austin/Central Texas Realty Information Service (ACTRIS). ABoR has more than 9,000 members.

“This partnership underscores the Austin Board of Realtors’ commitment to providing the latest tools and technological resources to our members,” said Lisa Messana, 2014 chair of ABoR’s ACTRIS Advisory Committee, in a statement.

“Through Realtors Property Resource, we will empower Austin Realtors with additional tools to analyze the real estate market and communicate market conditions to consumers.”

RPR has also expanded its relationship with mapping data firm Maponics. In 2010, Maponics signed an agreement to provide school boundary data to RPR. RPR also licenses ZIP code boundary data from Maponics.

Now, RPR is licensing Maponics’ “walkability” ratings, which represent how easy it is to walk to points of interest in an area, such as parks, schools and coffee shops. The company’s “Context Walkability” product includes a walkability index for U.S. city neighborhoods, as well as school attendance zones, subdivisions and other areas. Maponics began offering walkability ratings in July 2013.

“With neighborhood and community walkability on the minds of so many consumers, it’s vital that our agents and brokers have reliable, comprehensive information to share with their clients and customers,” said RPR CEO Dale Ross in a statement.

“The addition of this type of high-demand information to RPR’s already robust tools, features and reports will assist in positioning Realtors as the local market expert in their communities.”
