An Ultimate Destination For The Most Comprehensive Real Estate Data, Agorafy Prepares To Launch Nationwide

Through openly sharing information, we are building communities and businesses based on trust and collaboration across the U.S.

By Richard Du May 17, 2017

In the coming days, Agorafy will be entering a new chapter. It is the beginning of a new growth cycle in real estate technology with the soft launch of its platform nationwide. This expansion will keep Agorafy at the forefront in information technology. Our product will continue working on simplifying and facilitating the process of listing and searching for real estate information.

As globalization is taking over the way we live and work, the very concept of distance is changing irreversibly, shaping the world into one global village. Technology and innovation allow for greater interconnectivity, which has a tremendous impact on the world economy—businesses that were previously local by nature are now unconstrained by physical borders.

It is no wonder that real estate industry is also drastically affected. Towns, major cities, even states no longer exist as separate, independent real estate submarkets—they are blending into one big market, where people routinely hunt for properties on the opposite side of the country, and New York-based startups look into commercial space availabilities on the West Coast.

In order to operate on a larger scale, real estate industry needs to adapt to the changes. Thus, to successfully function on a nationwide and global scale, every real estate decision needs to be data-driven now more than ever. This means, every market participant needs a quick and easy access to the key market information. In other words, both real estate professionals and their potential customers need highest-quality relevant data concerning every possible neighborhood and zip code in the country, easily accessible with a click of a mouse.

Empowering every real estate market participant with knowledge—including industry professionals and their customers alike—has long been Agorafy’s mission. The company has constantly worked on being the most accurate source for commercial and residential listings, as well as property information, for both real estate professionals and the general public interested in accessing current market data to make informed decisions.
The platform has become an ultimate destination for the most accurate and comprehensive data across New York City’s five boroughs. Always at the forefront of data acquisition, verification and dissemination, Agorafy also needs to anticipate and meet the industry business needs. That is why is currently expanding the platform nationwide.

Agorafy has an advantage in the marketplace because technology eases the process, bringing real estate professionals information (agents, brokers, and customers), while creating more efficient practices to the marketplace. It will soon have presence in the markets where real estate professionals are looking to make highly-informed decisions based on current market data.
With full comprehensive information on real estate across every state, from New York to Hawaii and Alaska, Agorafy will increase transparency in the national real estate market, and provide access and value to every market participant across the U.S. As a result, the real industry will benefit tremendously and become more effective and efficient.

As local submarkets are becoming more transparent and comprehensible to everyone, thanks to accurate and relevant market data, real estate professionals will be able to focus on fostering new connections across the country and expanding their reach and expertise.
Other real estate market participants will also benefit: The democratized data, available to all, will allow people to broaden their horizons, consider new submarkets they previously wouldn’t have due to lack of information and awareness, and make more informed decisions that will result in lucrative transactions.

It is our belief that openly sharing information, from data to the wisdom of successful professionals, will build communities and businesses based on trust and collaboration. As we at Agorafy are preparing for the nationwide launch, we find ourselves at the threshold of a new, exciting chapter, getting ready to make a big step towards redefining distance and globalizing real estate.

Currently, Agorafy has access to the listings from over 600 MLS’s across the country, and a typical listing count of approximately 1.4 – 1.5 million listings, spread over 3,000 counties. And this is just a beginning of a long and exciting journey ahead of us. As we continue refining Agorafy platform, optimizing its design, improving user-experience, and growing the data, we invite everybody interested in real estate to get a sneak peek at what future Agorafy will look like.
