RP Data Pro v1.7 – What’s new in v1.7

We’re pleased to bring you this feature-packed new release of RP Data Pro, our biggest release since launch. There’s loads of new features and enhancements – have a read below and see what’s now available. You can also download a PDF walkthrough of these changes if you prefer to read that way.

New Features and Enhancements

Name Search – now by Suburb as well as State!

Our most requested feature, the ability to Name Search by Suburb has now been added! When performing a Name Search, you can now choose to filter by Suburb, or the entire State*. Name Search finds and returns all properties where the given Name played a role (as the buyer or vendor).

Addition of new Development Zone Data

CoreLogic is in the unique position to acquire and expose new data assets that we know will be beneficial to our customers. This includes the new Development Zone data attribute, now available on the Property Detail page in RP Data Pro.

Rental Estimate and Rental Estimate Report

We’ve always displayed the CoreLogic Valuation Estimate, and with this release we’ve also added in the Rental Estimate – which is a likely rental value for the property.

In addition, you can generate a Rental Estimate Report which will open a PDF report on your iPhone or iPad, for easy sharing via email, iMessage, air-drop or print.

We’ve also made some slight tweaks to the display of the Valuation Report, and made it easier to generate an AutoVal PDF report, for sharing with prospects or customers.

Development Application data in Property History

Easily make informed decisions on how these changes influence current property values. The Property History timeline on the Property Detail page now shows Development Applications, where available.

The view includes the type of Application, Construction Type, the Build Area & Value, Council Permit Number and the Permit Date.

Testimonials

“Its brilliance is in its simplicity of use and has been an enormous benefit to me in doing appraisals at potential vendors homes – particularly being able to scroll to lots of information including a bank of recent comparable sales without having to go out of the current screen and jump all over the place.”

Denis West, Ray White Thompson Partners

“I love the App and use it frequently. It is a great tool to do a quick appraisal and I find it incredibly accurate. The reports that it generates are very professional and look impressive in a listing presentation.”

Georg von Arnim, LJ Hooker Mooloolaba

    When r u finally going to do something for Android users? Now 2 years in a row that there are more Android than Apple users in Australia – Seriously, come on! You’ve been going to do something for years. Can anyone give me an honest answer, please?

      Hi Christopher

      While the country-wide stats show more Android users, in our CoreLogic RP Data user-base, it’s actually heavily skewed the other way. Our own research, as well as analytics through our tools and Google’s tools, show that our customer base is 80% apple devices and 20% Android.

      That’s why we’ve heavily invested in Apple in terms of iOS apps.

      We are currently in the early stages of rebuilding our Android app though. It’s definitely a focus for us to launch a new Android app around mid-2017. Sorry I can’t give you anything more specific than that, but will be in touch as we get closer.

        Hi Mike,

        Thanks for getting back to me so quick. Sorry to hear that line again. Not a personal attack – but mate, RPData have been saying that since a presentation in 2012 or 2013 at the Broncos Leagues Club here in Brisbane soon after they first launched their product as a mobile app in BETA format – and it still is – and it still locks up – and it wont let you close – and nothing has been upgraded – and have downloaded it and binned it many times each year hoping that it will have changed – rant over 🙂 ! It may have even been 2011. Hope I don’t get struck off as a user 🙂 .
        In providing some beneficial feedback from having worked across 3 major brands:
        As for RPData’s usage, yes, the amount of Apple usage in comparison to Android is due heavily to the amount of Android users dropping the App, and using desktop or mainly accessing the website via the main internet page. I can actually utilise the webpage quicker on Android devices than on a colleagues iphone. May be the difference in service provider.

        Spoken to quite a few rep’s (e.g. realestate.com, domain, B4 etc) who’s stats say it’s nearly 50 / 50 dependant on the month and can obviously vary from state to state in these months as well. May be worthwhile delving a bit deeper rather than going off current usage of RPData’s product.

        Have a great Christmas break and look fwd to the new release.

        Hi Christopher

        Thanks for the info. There’s definitely a bit of chicken and egg – if we had a better Android app, maybe more people would be on Android 🙂
        But we’ve done the research several times a year over the years and the results have always been the same (80% iOS) so that’s where it’s made sense for us to invest our $$$.

        As I said though, we are looking at providing a better Android app next year – so i’ll definitely be in touch.

        All the best for your Christmas.

        Cheers
        Mike
