Onboard now has one of the largest arsenals of U.S. public records databases at our disposal.  Now you can easily access property sales estimates, transactions, and records from a single API.   This is exciting stuff, mainly because it means you can now compete with national brands (and their big budgets) for things like SEO, market share, and online lead conversions.

Thanks to our relationship with CoreLogic, Onboard has a wealth of property information available and we’ve been pretty busy putting our own spin on it.  We’re in the process of rolling out our Beta release so I’d like to give a little insight into what you can expect over the next month or so.

First off, our new Property Search Engine API, contains over 150 million property records, assessments, and property tax figures.  This is in addition to the 94+ million AVM (automated valuation model) values and 97+ million historical home sales that we’ve been working with for years.  This data covers 3,128 of the 3,143 counties in the US (99.5% for those that don’t want to do the math).  On top of that we’ve stitched all of this data together and related it to all other Onboard content through various geographic relationships.

But the data is only part of the story.  The bigger news is that all of this data is now available via a REST API that allows for precise search and fast access in ways never before possible. Want to know all of the properties with taxes between $7,000 and $8,000 in a specific school attendance zone? Or the current estimated home values in a particular neighborhood? Or all of the single family properties that have sold over the past six months in a specific school district? You can do all of this and more with the new search engine.
