CoreLogic, a property information, analytics and data-enabled services provider, announced that its online University Data Portal now has access to new data, including information on foreclosures and mortgages.
The University Data Portal provides faculty, graduate and undergraduate students a way to run queries, extract residential and commercial property information and download reports for qualified academic research at lower rates.
The portal now includes the following information:
Foreclosure data: The portal now contains almost 45 million historical pre-foreclosure and foreclosure records though court action, judicial and non-judicial foreclosure and foreclosure sales. It provides coverage of 94% of U.S. counties.
MarketTrends: This contains 45 million geographic-level records from 2000 to the present, and covers over 85% of all outstanding mortgages. MarketTrends data includes median sales price, median loan-to-value, delinquency, distressed sales, real estate owned, housing stock, number of sales and negative equity.
“These enhancements significantly expand the scope of research that can be performed through use of the CoreLogic University Data Portal and provide deep insight into the most seismic real estate event of the last 80 years: the mortgage and foreclosure crisis,” said CoreLogic Chief Economist Frank Nothaft.
“By expanding the portal, we hope to help economists shape and provide insight into the future of the housing and commercial real estate industries,” Nothaft said.
Universities use CoreLogic data in academic research examining subjects such as housing migration, unemployment, demographics, housing reform and other topics related to the U.S. housing market and economy.
