March 2022

Platform improvements powered by people!

At National Property Group, when we say we’re powered by people, we don’t just mean our team, we mean all the people who use our platform and take the time to give us feedback and ideas about how to continuously enhance it.

This quarter, we focused on giving you more ability to customise and put your expertise on show, with new reports, more control over existing reports, and a range of changes that make getting to where you need to be, easy.  Here’s a sample of what’s new:

  • Our new Neighbourhood Reports, featuring stats and graphs, are out now!
  • Customise your CMA by adding which agent it is from, and selecting the images you want to see on your property and comparables.
  • Want to give feedback? Check out the feedback button, now in the top right. 
  • Remove your saved search quickly, by clicking the star next to it.
  • Add saved searches just as quickly, by clicking the star next to a recent search.
  • Get more from your saved and recent searches by clicking ‘View More’.
  • We’ve given you more room to move, with our search bar and filters now in the top bar. 
  • Looking for the number of results or marked properties? Scroll down the page! 
  • Find out when photos were taken with the date right in the top of each image. 
  • Keep moving quickly, by adding a new search to existing search results.
  • Need even more data? Now you’ll find the unimproved capital value and date, primary lot record and last updated date, right there, on the property page.
  • Our new Neighbourhood Report is now available with the click of a button.

All updates available start 29 March 2022.

December 2021

Now our property data is as mobile as you are!

National Property Group has now released our beta mobile app for busy property professionals who want to access our data, mapping and reports while in the field. Our web app (that means no app stores, you download it right from your mobile web browser and keep it on your home screen) has been designed to be fast and easy, providing you access to all the tools and information you regularly use on our desktop data platform, with a few simple taps of your finger.

Use the National Property Data mobile app in NSW and QLD to:

  • Search up to 40 years of property sales history 
  • Search for current market data and insights, updated weekly
  • Create ‘on-the-run’ summary, detailed, sales history and full reports to show or share
  • Create a PDF Automated Valuation Model Report (AVM) in under 5 clicks
  • Export a PDF hybrid or manual CMA in under 3 minutes
  • Dive into our industry-leading Mapping to search, learn and present visually

Though our app is intuitive and we know you’ll have it mastered from the minute you download it, our friendly support team is on standby, from launch, to provide one-on-one mentoring and webinars so you can feel comfortable and confident finding exactly what you need while you’re in the car (not driving of course), hosting an inspection or appraising or valuing a home or land.

November 2021

We’re headed to QLD!

Our customers have once again provided us with valuable insights and feedback, and we continue to add new functionality to the platform and enhance usability so we can deliver an excellent property data experience. 

Our top new features this month include:

  • The introduction of our QLD dataset — while it will take a little time to fully fire, QLD is now onboard and in pilot phase!
  • We have updated our login page to better protect our customers and our data, and ensure compliance in this highly-regulated space.
  • When using lists, by clicking a column label, you can now filter data right on screen to narrow down search results.
  • In lists, you can drag and drop columns around to put them in the place that makes most sense to you. Also available now, is the ability to lock columns into place in their new position, and resize columns just like you do in excel.
  • You can now see all results on one page, for simpler, faster viewing.
  • When using our search, you will now also see the count for Current Market Information and Property and Owners Information results right there in the drop down response. 
  • Disclaimers on reports have now been updated and can be exported.

All updates will be available to users from 3 November 2021.

October 2021

Creating your CMA just got faster and easier!

National Property Data has a new, faster and easier Comparative Market Analysis builder — and you can try it out now!

Working with our community of collaborators, we have updated and now released our new CMA report builder for all subscribers and we’re already getting great reviews! Among other new features that will speed up your process and create a more compelling report:

  • We’ve included new and simple CMA-specific navigation, like a ‘Next’ button in the top right corner of the AVM, to help you zip through each step so you can output a quality report in no time.
  • Your selected property now follows you, on-screen, so you never lose sight of your key comparison points, allowing you to update AVM information quickly and accurately.
  • You can use the new ‘Create my report’ button in the top right to rapidly export and print, or ‘Go back’, if you want to readjust your property value.
  • Estimated price defaults to the AVM price but gives you full editing capability to adjust the AVM value or include words.
  • You can control the content in your report easier, with simple tick boxes down the left of the page, including an option to remove static information pages.
  • Simply tick the new ‘Select all’ option in the Statistics section to include everything and save even more time!
    These are just a few of the features in our new CMA builder, to find out more, try it out for yourself, by logging on at National Property Data.

All updates will be available to users from 20 October 2021.

Working with our community to create the functionality you need most

Standard view offers greater spacing and larger text. Comfortable gives you the property thumbnail and additional data at-a-glance. 
  • Search has again been updated, so you can view and run your top 10 searches quickly, by clicking ‘Recent Searches’.
  • User Profiles are now editable, including passwords.
  • The search ‘Ownership Accordion‘ gives you increased control over ownership searches, and additional navigation lets you move around faster and easier.

  • StreetView is operational.
  • The Full Reports for CMI and Property Information records are now available.
  • In CMI history, records can be clicked on to show information for that specific record, including images and description.  
  • Our new CMA builder has been launched for Mapping users and is coming soon to all platform users. It enables you to create a custom and compelling Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) report faster and easier, and with more control, due to new functionality and enhanced navigation and customisation.
