First American: Our property ownership database now covers 100% of nation

Boasts first all-America coverage through DataTree

Last year, First American Financial launched a new property research website, boasting that DataTree would be the “fastest, most comprehensive and easiest to use property research solution on the market.”

At the time, First American claimed that DataTree would be built on the industry’s “largest database of property and homeowner information and document images,” and would include 99% of U.S. housing stock.

But 99% wasn’t enough for First American, as the provider of title insurance, settlement services and risk solutions for real estate transactions is now claiming that DataTree is able to provide 100% coverage of U.S. property ownership data.

According to First American, recent additions of new data assets make First American the “first and only” real estate data provider to offer “complete” coverage for property data.

“Our data acquisition and product investments have further solidified our position as the industry leader in real estate data and demonstrate our commitment to delivering the most robust real estate data set available to our customers,” said Jim Portner, senior vice president of product and market strategy, First American Database Solutions.

First American also claims that over the last year, the company launched the housing industry’s largest, nationwide homeowners association database, adding in additional property transaction deed and mortgage coverage, as well as expanding the company’s property tax database nationwide.
