Toronto, ON (Feb 8, 2023) RPS Real Property Solutions Inc. (RPS), a Brookfield company and leading Canadian provider of valuation solutions to financial institutions and the real estate market, announced today its exclusive partnership with Offerland Technologies Inc. (Offerland) to bring rental data, analytics and technologies that deliver more insightful, accurate and speedier market rent valuations.
For over two decades, real estate data and analytics like automated valuation models (AVMs) have been a critical component of the Canadian mortgage lending process and used to significantly reduce turnaround times, improve underwriting decisions, lower risk, enhance the customer’s experience and decrease overall valuation costs. Financial institutions want to extend these benefits to market rents, especially in the current environment where rentals are more in demand to address reduced housing affordability and rental rates are experiencing rapid price changes due to inflationary and demand pressures.
RPS has partnered with Offerland to deliver market rent valuation solutions that include the only national, reliable market rent AVM available in Canada today and neighbourhood-level rental indices.
Offerland has compiled one of the largest, most comprehensive market rent databases in Canada, developed a reliable, accurate instant market rent AVM that uses a machine learning model as well as built technologies that significantly streamline the process for appraisers to write market rent appraisal reports. RPS’ clients can now leverage these solutions as part of RPS’ comprehensive suite of valuation solutions and management services.
“RPS is excited to bring further improvements to the home and mortgage journeys of our clients through our partnership with Offerland,” said Craig O’Brien, Senior Vice President, Business Development at RPS. “Offerland’s market rent solutions deliver on our objective of always ensuring wins for our clients and continuously supporting their success.”
“With 25 years of valuations management experience and deep, long-standing relationships with almost every major financial institution in Canada, Offerland is proud to partner with RPS and empower RPS’ clients with solutions that bring insights, accuracy and speed to market rent valuations,” said Hamidreza Etebarian, Co-founder and CEO at Offerland.
