Centract's TrendPoint™ API To Power Mobile Apps

API gives users immediate insight on neighbourhood residential real estate information

TORONTO, Jan. 31 /CNW/ - Centract Settlement Services today announced that its TrendPoint application programming interface (API) is now powering smartphones, including Blackberry® and iPhone®.

This new mobile application will allow users to obtain valuable information on residential real estate pricing trends in markets across Canada by accessing Centract's current data and analytic products including Neighbourhood Reports and Heat Maps.

"Centract possesses one of the largest commercially available databases of residential real estate information in Canada," said Rob Soja, Associate Vice President of Business Development at Centract.  "It includes data from across the Brookfield Residential Property Services (BRPS) group of companies, which touches nearly half of all residential real estate transactions and 60 to 70 per cent of all properties traded in Canada each year." 

Mr. Soja continued, "With valuation expertise crossing all facets of real estate and mortgage transactions, our insight into property trends is unparalleled."

In addition to mobile apps, Centract's TrendPoint™ API is being used for online and business enterprise applications. While users benefit from easy and efficient access to real estate information, TrendPoint™ enables its corporate clients to generate more leads, drive higher close rates, reduce risk, better focus their spending, and improve overall operational efficiencies.

"Leaders and innovators across industries are leveraging TrendPoint™ to substantively differentiate themselves in the marketplace," said Mr. Soja. "We're pleased to facilitate access to valuable real estate information for Canadian consumers while, at the same time, enabling companies to leverage the power of our real estate analytics and tools."

Current TrendPoint™ clients include lenders, insurers, real estate agents, mortgage brokers, the public sector, retailers, and wealth management companies, among others.
