Exciting news was announced today! Clareity has been purchased by CoreLogic. CoreLogic purchased the security company and the consulting company. Gregg and the entire Clareity team became part of the CoreLogic family effective today. WAV Group congratulates both companies. What it means for the industry….. I reached out to a few people to get their opinions and here is what I found. Inman News Summary – For the most part, this acquisition will be business as usual for all clients of Clareity. For obvious reasons, a lot of the comparative services that Clareity has provided will be carefully considered – ie – vendor selection or maybe MLS competitive survey. They are not shuttering the consulting services. Matt Cohen’s opinion is that CoreLogic intends to maintain the same policies with Clareity supporting competing MLS systems. Clareity will join Realist, ePropertyWatch, Listing Data Checker, Trestle, and the many other products that can service any MLS regardless of the core system. We will just carry on as usual. David Friedman, CEO of Boston Logic commented that he “did not know they were shopping.” Boston Logic is actively acquiring real estate technology companies and recently announced the acquisition of Property Base on June 1st of this year. The transaction was somewhat significant, but not reported. WAV Group’s surprise was that the companies have decided not to release the price of the transaction or the revenue of Clareity at the time of the transaction.  CoreLogic’s auditors probably set a threshold on material acquisitions that may not have been pierced. However, WAV Group suspects that the terms of the transaction could be shared publicly or filed with the SEC within a reasonable amount of time. CoreLogic is meticulous and hygienic when it comes to the obligations of a public company. Keep your eyes peeled. Ken Jenny pointed out that “Clareity Security’s prime feature is insuring tat every agent pays for MLS access. I suspect that Clareity Security is installed on most CoreLogic accounts. If nothing else, CoreLogic will be assured that they get paid for every seat in the MLS. I whish MLSs would invest as much in protecting data. The biggest security breach is going out via data feeds. MLSs should worry about that as a priority rather than a few real estate agents not paying the dues. The MLS is a very unsecure place to keep data.” Stefan Swanepoel had no comment but encourages […]

Safe Syndicaiton and RED

Today, October 4th, 2011 two vendors announce separate but complementary solutions leading up to the Council of MLS conference: CMLS. Both companies issued press releases of software that effectively works together to handle data syndication. Safe Syndication is a new product launch and reDataVault is a 2.0 release. Both reDataVault and Safe syndication have similar goals in mind – they both seek to support MLSs in managing data outside the walls of the MLS. reDataVault actually distributes data, Safe Syndication does not..  reDataVault goes a bit further by automating the process of managing RETS/IDX/VOW/DataLicense agreements. Safe Syndication has a document repository, but is not a transaction management solution for applying for the agreement. Both systems have some billing integration.
