CoreLogic, an Irvine, California-based provider of global property information, analytics, and data-enabled services, has announced that its online University Data Portal will offer access to the most comprehensive foreclosure and mortgage information available to the industry.
With CoreLogic’s University Data Portal, faculty and students both at the graduate and undergraduate levels can run queries, extract residential or commercial property characteristics, and download reports at preferred rates for qualified academic research.
The enhancements made to the University Data Portal include two new datasets:
- Comprehensive foreclosure data that includes nearly 45 million foreclosure and pre-foreclosure records through court action and both judicial and non-judicial foreclosure sales. The data covers 94 percent of U.S. counties.
- CoreLogic MarketTrends, which contains 45 million geographic-level records from 2000 to the present, covering more than 85 percent of all outstanding mortgages. Information featured in MarketTrends includes median sales price, median loan-to-value, delinquency, distressed sales, real estate owned, housing stock, number of sales, and negative equity.
“These enhancements significantly expand the scope of research that can be performed through use of the CoreLogic University Data Portal and provide deep insight into the most seismic real estate event of the last 80 years: the mortgage and foreclosure crisis,” said Frank Nothaft, chief economist for CoreLogic. “By expanding the portal, we hope to help economists shape and provide insight into the future of the housing and commercial real estate industries.”
The University Data Portal was developed by CoreLogic in response to the hundreds of requests the company receives each year from acadamics researching various mortgage and real estate-related topics. CoreLogic data covering subjects such as housing migration, employment, demographics, housing reform, and housing market topics have been widely used in academic research.
