SAN JOSE, Calif., Jan. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- REALTORS® will have a new powerful tool this summer to better serve their clients – access to an online real estate library/archive with data on every property in the United States.

The Realtors Property Resources(TM) (RPR), a project by the National Association of REALTORS® and one of the hottest topics in the real estate industry, will provide unmatched access to tax and assessment data; property data; neighborhood, school, and demographic information; and maps, trends, and reports. RPR will include public record information, details of prior transactions, MLS data, zoning information, and other relevant information.

RPR will be exclusive to REALTORS® and members of participating MLS's.

"RPR is welcoming news for our REALTOR® members who are always tech savvy and on the cutting edge of business innovation," said Karl Lee, President of the Santa Clara County Association of REALTORS®. "This visionary project will not only provide our members with in-depth, trusted information on local properties, but make it easier for them to help clients analyze their buying and selling decisions, including specialized property types, such as vacation homes. RPR's Advanced User Profile and social networking component will help create online referral communities and inspire our members to experiment with new business models."

Beta testing will begin in March, 2010. REALTOR® logins will begin to be activated across the country on July 1, 2010 and a phased roll-out will occur in the coming months.
