Hawaii Information Service is happy to announce that it has partnered with Realtors® Property Resource (RPR) to give you access to another great source of comprehensive data, powerful analytics, and client-friendly reports!
RPR is 100% owned by Realtors®, created by NAR exclusively for Realtors®. And this member benefit, which will soon incorporate listing data from your MLS, is being provided at no additional cost.
RPR gives you access to hundreds of datasets on over 160 million properties, including the largest database of foreclosure information by county in the U.S., as well as tax, mortgage, FEMA flood, and school zoning information – plus much more.
Listing data from Hawaii Information Service is scheduled to go live in RPR in October. To prepare for this, RPR is preparing to set up your RPR account now!
RPR Account Creation
On Tuesday, September 19, RPR sent emails to members with account information and instructions on how to access the system. Please note that if you already have an RPR account, you will not receive this account creation email. You can just continue to use your existing username and password, but you will soon be able to see information from Hawaii Information Service in the system.
If you did not find the email in your Inbox, please check your ‘Spam’ or ‘Junk’ mail folder. If no RPR email was received, and your NAR membership/NRDS account is current, please check out the Read the “New User Quick Start Guide” and create a new RPR account there.
If you still encounter an error, please contact the RPR support center at (877) 977-7576. It’s available 24/7.
