Can’t I get the same data from free services like Zillow ®?

Simply put, no. Zillow®, (along with all of the free services or real estate software) typically provide some type of home valuation solution to consumers. However, there valuation models are usually very low end solutions that rely heavily on consumer input to increase their "accuracy."

RealTAG™ provides information that is both highly accurate, as well as unavailable elsewhere:

What is an AVM, and why does RealTAG™ use AVM’s to provide an accurate property valuation?

AVM is short for "Automated Valuation Model".  Appraisers, Wall Street and Lending Institutions all use AVM technology in their analysis of residential property value. 

The RealTAG™ AVM is the product of an automated valuation technology analysis, public record data, and computer decision logic combined to provide a logical calculated estimate of a probable selling price of a residential property. AVM’s generally use a combination of two types of evaluation, the running of a hedonic model and a repeat sales index. The results of each are weighed, analyzed and then reported as a final estimate of value based on a requested reasoning date.

AVMs are increasingly used by mortgage lenders to determine what a property might be worth in order for them to lend against the valuation.

RealTAG™ utilizes a hedonic model that uses property characteristics combined with appraisal logic and price-time indexing to arrive at a property valuation. Pairing the largest online property and ownership database in the nation with superior analytic technology, RealTAG’s™ AVM delivers highly accurate and reliable valuation results.

What is the RealTAG™ score?

Our RealTAG™ scores are proprietary scoring models that predict the likelihood of a consumer to be willing AND able to transact within a short (90 to 180 days) window of time.

All of our score models start with large data sets (1,000,000 lead samples) that are developed using multiple regression analysis to create highly predictive scores.

  • The RealTAG™ scores for Realtors® and Builders predict the likelihood of the consumer to purchase a new home as well as the likelihood that they will be able to sell their current property.
  • The RealTAG™ scores for Lenders, predict the likelihood that a consumer will consummate a loan.

What is the RealTAG™ Income Score?

Our RealTAG™ Income score is a proprietary scoring model that predicts the combined household level income on 141,000,000 properties across the United States. It is based on both public as well as proprietary data sources, but is entirely privacy and credit free.

The score presents the income in a dollar value range: i.e. $100,000 to $125,000

How do the RealTAG™ scores work?

All of our models are statistics based, and use both public data as well as proprietary data sets to predict an outcome.   All of our models use massive amounts of data in their creation, and are unique in the industry.
All of our score models start with large data sets (1,000,000 lead samples) that are developed using multiple regression analysis to create highly predictive scores.

While most people are familiar with credit based scores, (which predict the likelihood of a consumer to pay a debt), our models seek to provide guidance to a sales professional by pointing them towards consumers that are more likely to purchase, refinance, etc.

Does RealTAG™ pull credit scores or use credit based data?

NO, nothing within RealTAG™ uses credit or any other potential FCRA issue data.  Further, since our data set uses entirely public record information, we do not require consumer permission to run RealTAG™.  

RealTAG™ is designed to be insightful, yet non-invasive from a consumer privacy standpoint.

Is RealTAG™ a prospecting platform?

There are many uses for RealTAG™ from researching offers, to prospecting new clients, to qualifying existing ones.  Since RealTAG™ requires an address at minimum; many clients find success by using it to prospect.

  • Who owns the property
