ATTOM’s property data API: a use case
USinfoSearch.com (previously Foresight Information Services) is an investigative tool that provides its users with a range of information, including transaction verification data, civil and criminal court data, and income and social security verification data.
They use ATTOM’s API data as a platform for loan risk models — enabling banks and mortgage resellers to undertake a thorough risk analysis on a customer application in order to process their loan. ATTOM’s property data API provides the team’s clients with invaluable data on property foreclosures, property sales history, and sales prices. With some clients processing up to 30 transactions per month.
When asked how ATTOM compared with s previous real estate data API provider, James W. Waters, Founder and CEO explained, “Not even a comparison. It’s sitting on the wing of an aircraft versus sitting in first class. At the end of the day, that was what really convinced me. You rarely have people like me that will write in or call in and say, ‘You guys are doing a great job.’”
