IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — ATTOM Data Solutions, curator of the nation’s premier property database, today announced the launch of a streamlined API (application program interface) platform that consolidates its property-centric tax, deed, mortgage and foreclosure data with enhanced neighborhood-centric schools, crime, and other community data along with neighborhood and school attendance zone boundaries — all available nationwide.
“We’ve combined all the premium property data ATTOM has been collecting and curating for decades with the best-in-class neighborhood and boundary data we recently acquired to create a one-stop shop for accessing real estate data via API,” said Rob Barber, CEO with ATTOM Data Solutions.
The neighborhood-centric data — recently integrated into the ATTOM Data Warehouse following the company’s acquisition of Onboard Informatics earlier this year — also includes points of interest such as restaurants, banks and shopping; demographic information such as population and education statistics; weather data and averages; and commute times.
“Combining different but complementary real estate datasets into a single API platform allowed us to include some out-of-the-box real estate search options,” said Todd Teta, CTO with ATTOM Data Solutions. “This new API supports the ability to search by point and radius, or by different boundary levels such as subdivision or neighborhood.”
API developer platform provides instant access to production data
The new consolidated ATTOM APIs will be accessible through a self-service developer platform that features a 30-day trial for users to test against ATTOM’s production data — up to 500 calls per day. The developer platform also includes public-facing how-to guides and sample code to streamline integration.
“Developers accessing the new ATTOM API won’t have to talk to a sales rep or wait a week for a test agreement to start accessing production data,” said Richard Lombardi, COO with ATTOM Data Solutions. “We provide a simple click-through agreement along with comprehensive integration documentation, so you can get started today.”
Market-level analytics and derived property data also available via API
With a competitively priced basic package for customers who want to start out with lower API volumes, the ATTOM API platform provides a flexible and scalable data delivery option for real estate websites, portals and applications, along with applications for other industries including mortgage, insurance and marketing.
“Mainly we use (ATTOM) API data as a platform for loan risk models. Some of our clients might be a bank or mortgage reseller or businesses that process loans,” said James W. Waters, Founder and CEO at Foresight Information Services. “We eventually decided to move a large chunk of business over to ATTOM Data Solutions from a previous API data provider.”
Analytics data, including local home sales and price trends, along with derivative data, including the ATTOMIZED AVM (Automated Valuation Model), are also available via the new ATTOM API platform.
“SetSchedule utilizes ATTOM’s Automated Valuation Model (AVM) delivered via API to help power our SetValue network for homeowners. This gives homeowners the opportunity to see what their house is estimated to be sold for if they were interested in selling their property,” said Roy Dekel, CEO with SetSchedule, an application that matches buyers with Realtors using data and AI. “Utilizing the ATTOM API developer platform to deliver the AVM allows us to instantly provide homeowners with a better understanding of what their house is worth without having to look at comparable houses since the system factors that in.”
