Attom Data acquires GeoData Plus


Atom Data Solutions, which is a real estate data provider, took over GeoData Plus. The United State’s biggest property database is GeoData Plus. It provides access to valuation, prospecting tools, and property reports. The company didn't disclose any details to the public.


About Attom

Attom was established in 1996. The company has its headquarter in Irvine, California, United States. It deals with environmental risk, neighborhood, natural hazard, deed, mortgage, foreclosure, and property tax data for over 155 U.S. residential and commercial properties. The data covers the country's 99 percent population. It collects data from 3000+ U.S. counties. 20TB ATTOM data warehouse stimulates business innovation as it gives them actionable real estate analytics and data.


About GeoData Plus

GeoData Plus was launched in 2000. Everyone, including real estate professionals, appraisers, lenders and many others, depend on in-depth property research. It contains details like sales camps, property ownership, characteristics, mortgage data and more. Berkery Noyes was its exclusive financial advisor.

The GeoData Plus application has brilliant features like digital maps, zoning maps, violations, aerial photographs, property photographs, sales camps, liens, and merging with appraisal software.


According to Attom’s chief executive officer, Rob Barber, customers will get a better insight into the marketplace with the help of the GeoData Plus’ platform.

Barber stated the benefits of the acquisition. With this acquisition, there is an increase in Attom’s value proposition for the customers and the whole marketplace, for that matter. This is so because users can now get valuable information and in-depth property reports to make more accurate property choices.

Eric Wind, GeoData Plus’ president, claimed no doubt both companies possess different strengths. Still, they share the same end goal, i.e., to make real estate transactions transparent and easier for the customers.

Even before this acquisition, GeoData Plus had a partnership with Attom. GeoData Plus used Attom’s data to report liens and violations and make sales comparisons. Corelogic, Allstate, and many real estate brokerages like Century 21, Coldwell Banker, Better Homes & Gardens, and Brown Harris Stevens are its clients.

Attom has made so many acquisitions in the past year. Attom acquired a geospatial data company Home Junction in 2020's summer. This acquisition resulted in Attom gaining more demographic data such as crime, neighborhood data, school attendance zones, and more to be used by its property platform. The company launched Attom Cloud in June. It is a cloud-based platform that makes some of the complicated data management simpler for the clients. This will provide on-demand and direct access to property information of Attom.

Last year, Attom launched a searchable database to build permits in almost 100 largest cities of the nation. The company claims to possess up-to-date information about more than 200  million commercial and residential properties throughout the U.S. It has a property’s permit for roofing and solar installation, roofing and also permits status, job cost and contractors.

Attom will now update its toolkit by adding an elaborated set of real estate reports. It has plans to include some new visual resources and estimates. These will help the clients to compare properties.
