Leading Online Foreclosure Property Website Now Part of Nations Info
IRVINE, Calif. – July 28, 2022 —ATTOM, a leading curator of real estate data nationwide for land and property data, today announced that it has sold its RealtyTrac (www.realtytrac.com) and Homefacts (www.homefacts.com) websites to Nations Info. As part of this transaction, effective July 15, 2022, Nations Info has also signed a multi-year agreement to become an ATTOM data licensing customer.
Founded in 1996, RealtyTrac has been one of the leading resources for investors, real estate agents and consumers looking for foreclosure properties, democratizing what had historically been an “insider-only” process, and making it easier for all interested parties to search for, analyze and evaluate properties in all three stages of foreclosure. Homefacts is a one-stop shop providing accurate and reliable property and neighborhood data including school ratings, crime rates, and environmental and natural disaster risks.
“RealtyTrac will always have an important place in ATTOM’s history – our company actually started out as RealtyTrac back in the mid-1990’s – and was integral to fueling our company’s growth over the years,” said Rob Barber, ATTOM CEO. “But as the company shifted its focus to data licensing, and our customer base moved from individual consumers and real estate agents to large enterprises, websites like RealtyTrac and Homefacts were no longer closely aligned with our future vision for ATTOM’s growth.”
According to Barber, this divestiture allows ATTOM to focus 100% on continuing to accelerate the growth of its already-successful data licensing business. “We’re well on our way to meeting our 2022 objectives, and this enhanced focus should enable us to be even more successful in the years ahead,” Barber added.
