RE/MAX, Realty Trac announce strategic data enhancement agreement

RealtyTrac and RE/MAX 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. 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 1.1M 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.
