Real Estate Tech Roundup 24/6/11
Each week, we take a look at the top stories in real estate technology from the past seven days. Here are the latest stories from around the world:
Mobile real estate app provider Smarter Agent received a US$6 million funding injection, which brings the company’s total funding to $18 million. The company says this new funding will go towards to developing its mobile search platform and new hiring.
Point2 was busy again this week with the release of its Express Tools product, which the company says has been designed with new agents, non-technical agents and those who require specific, scalable tools in mind. Point2 claims Express Tools’ “Site Builder” product enables agents to create a real estate website in as little as three minutes.
In the UK, agent software provider Dezrez formed a new data migration department to help clients export data from their existing system to the Dezrez platform. “The company are looking to expand the team rapidly and are hoping to employ a number of further developers soon,” Dezrez told the-negotiator.co.uk.
Back in the US, CoreLogic has signed a deal to have Midwest Real Estate Data (MRED) – an MLS with nearly 40,000 customers – participate in its Partner InfoNet program. This revenue sharing program allows MLSs to license their listing data to CoreLogic for use in risk management products for mortgage lenders, servicers and the capital markets. But as inman.com reports, MRED is also in negotiations with a CoreLogic rival – National Association of Realtors subsidiary Realtors Property Resource (RPR).
