Real Estate Industry
Almost 90% of real estate buyers in the U.S. purchased their home from a real estate agent in the last year – a number that has continued to increase since 2001 when less than 70% of buyers used a real estate agent. Now with over 1.2 million members of the National Association of Realtors (NAR) it has become instrumental for real estate agents, mortgage lenders, appraisers and real estate developers to have the most accurate data about each property at their fingertips.
Virtually all real estate transactions in the US rely heavily on data regarding property lines and other property attributes to compare the real estate available and make decisions. Property attributes can include acreage, zoning, flood zone, land use, school district, year built, last transfer date, sale price and more. In the past, real estate developers, real estate brokers, appraisers and others in the real estate industry performed property research by sorting through catalogued documents at the county courthouse or recorder’s office to discover sales history, records of ownership, tax assessed value, and other parcel data. However, with more municipalities investing in Geographic Information Systems (GIS) to enter property data electronically, much of the property information is now available online.
GIS Tools for Real Estate Professionals
Now that professionals in the real estate industry rely more heavily on GIS technology and geospatial data in place of plat books and county research, choosing the right provider of GIS and geospatial data has become critical to the success of real estate professionals around the country. From real estate brokers, mortgage lenders and real estate appraisers to real estate developers and surveyors, accurate, comprehensive and convenient parcel information can be the key to timeliness and efficiency in each real estate transaction.
