""We have been licensing data to CoreLogic since 1999, and it has been a very beneficial relationship,"" said Margie Dorrance, chair of HAR's board of directors. ""We are pleased to extend our partnership with CoreLogic and are confident in their ability to represent our interests.""
According to CoreLogic, the renewed agreement extends the permitted use of HAR's listing data beyond automated valuation models (AVMs) to other risk management solutions.
Under the agreement, HAR will also join the CoreLogic MarketLinx Data Co-op, which facilitates the sharing of real estate listings with other multiply listing services (MLSs) around the country. Additionally, HAR will provide its members with CoreLogic MLS-enhanced AVMS through the MarketLinx TEMPO MLS system.
""We are privileged to serve Houston and to be entrusted with this responsibility,"" said Ben Graboske, CEO of CoreLogic MarketLinx. ""Tremendous opportunities exist for MLSs that want to derive more value from their listing data.""
