The Title Insurance industry typically provided Property Profile and Farm information to Real Estate Professionals with their branding on them. Title Companies can NO LONGER in California.
Real Estate professionals wishing to have their photo, logo and property photos must now subscribe to systems independently. The California Land Title Association released a reminder to Title Companies and Real Estate Professionals of this fact.
"The Department of Insurance is working towards developing a clear policy to guide title companies regarding disclosure of property information."
"In the interim, the Department is reminding companies that property profiles cannot be distributed in a manner that would allow them to be converted by real estate agents, mortgage brokers, or any other persons into advertising for their own businesses and the distribution of property profiles cannot be done as an inducement for any person to place or refer title business to the insurer."
There are several good Companies providing the data that Real Estate Professionals need to prepare for listing presentations. A new one just entered the market at ProfilesandFarms that integrates property data, farm information and lead generation/management systems. This system has the ability to pull basic property information, demographic and community information for FREE and the detailed property profile information report as a charge with a per unit or report cost OR a monthly subscription.
LPS, Core Logic and Dataquick all have similar systems with monthly subscription based systems.
