CoreLogic has launched CoreLogic University Data Portal, an online self-service website that provides access to residential and commercial real estate data used for qualified academic research at preferred rates.
The portal allows academic researchers to run unique queries, extract data and download reports in two distinct categories—property characteristics and property transactions. The information features the company’s combined databases from public and proprietary sources, which cover 99 percent of all U.S. properties, equating to 148 million properties and 99.9 percent of the population. The portal also includes tax information on 144 million parcels.
The company developed the portal and preferred rate structure in response to the hundreds of requests it receives each year from academics researching various real estate, mortgage and risk-related issues. CoreLogic data has been widely used in academic research examining subjects such as housing migration, unemployment, demographics, housing reform and other topics relevant to the U.S. housing market and overall economy.
“We’re excited to offer affordable and easy-to-use solutions that provide access to our robust data assets, powering academic and housing policy research,” said Frank Nothaft, chief economist for CoreLogic. “By fostering unique research applications, we’re enabling today’s thought leaders and tomorrow’s economists to develop insightful analysis crucial to understanding the dynamics of the housing and commercial real estate industries in the future.”
University Data Portal was built by Columbia, Md.-based software development company, Indisoft.
