NEW YORK, Oct. 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reis, Inc. (NASDAQ:REIS) ("Reis" or the "Company"), a leading provider of commercial real estate market information and analytical tools, announced today the immediate inclusion of all land sales transactions to its nationwide database of commercial real estate sales comparables. The move builds upon the Company's decision in 2016 to release all commercial real estate property transactions in the U.S., regardless of property type or geographic location. With the addition of land sales, Reis now provides sales comparables for all properties and parcels anywhere in the nation, "Every Comp, Everywhere."
"The achievement of ‘Every Comp, Everywhere' opens new doors for Reis, both within our current client base and beyond it," said Reis's President and COO, Bill Sander. "Our integrated market and analytical tools, long prized by research departments at major firms, are now fully configured to serve front line investment sales brokers, appraisers, tax appeal professionals, and others whose need to search all sales comparables, regardless of property type or location, has historically required them to maintain large six- and sometimes seven-figure contracts with other firms. Reis is now well positioned to compete for that business."
The newly added Land Sales Comparables will include geographical data points, including but not limited to location, land use code, parcel number, and lot size, in
addition to key transactional data points, such as buyer and seller name, sale price, sale date, assessed and appraised value, and financing details when available.
According to Mr. Sander, "This launch demonstrates yet again Reis's strategy of aligning product development to serve a real estate industry that is rapidly evolving and consuming even greater quantities of market intelligence."
