NEW YORK, Sept. 29, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reis, Inc. (NASDAQ:REIS) (“Reis” or the “Company”), a leading provider of commercial real estate market information and analytical tools, announced today that it has expanded its commercial real estate Sales Comparables platform to include virtually all U.S. transactions, regardless of geography or sector. With this release, Reis is now in a position to claim additional subscription revenue both from current clients that are no longer forced to divide their research budgets among multiple vendors, and from prospect firms that, until now, may have concentrated their investment sales intelligence budget with a Reis competitor. The new offering is expected to appeal to mortgage and property originators and underwriters, brokers and appraisers, and any other real estate professional seeking the most comprehensive database of transactions to source deals, prospect for related business, or conduct due diligence.
“Reis has long been a one-stop shop for any firm operating within our markets and property types,” said Reis’s President and COO, Bill Sander, “but almost all of our large clients have periodic need for Sales Comparables coverage in more remote areas, or for specialty property types. With this widening of Reis’s net to capture all of those transactions, we have closed a potential entry point for the competition, fortifying Reis’s position as the unassailable source for integrated market intelligence nationwide.”
The newly added Sales Comparables will include key structural data points, including but not limited to address, 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, deed reference, and financing details when available.
According to Mr. Sander, “The launch demonstrates yet again Reis’s strategic responsiveness to market conditions and client needs as we continue to position the firm for additional revenue growth opportunities.”
