Data and analytics services provider CoreLogic announced Thursday that more than 700 million data records have now been delivered through its 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 University Data Portal enables faculty and graduate and undergraduate students to run queries, extract residential and commercial tax and property transactions and deed data, and download custom reports.
The information available to students through the company’s databases includes 494 million deed records representing 97 percent of U.S. property transactions, 158 million property tax records, 46 million foreclosure records and more.
“The University Data Portal was created to provide the academic community with gold standard property data for their research needs, and is the only resource of its kind in the industry,” said Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist for CoreLogic. “CoreLogic is constantly looking for ways to support this community and is committed to continuously updating the portal with new and relevant data sets. It is extremely gratifying to have delivered such a significant amount of data to help fuel academic research.”
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.
