How to Take Advantage of the RPR and zipLogix Integration

March 28 2017

interconnectBig things do come in small packages. And when those simple, lightbulb kind of innovations do come our way, they are likely welcome changes to the ways in which we conduct business. Such is the case with one of the more popular features offered by Realtors Property Resource® (RPR®)––with notable regard for listing agents.

Through a partnership with zipForm®, the nation's leading online real estate forms provider, REALTORS® who use zipForm® and RPR can easily jump between the two platforms via one simple click, providing instant access to forms and property data needed to complete your transaction. Moreso, the integration allows REALTORS® to create new zipForm transactions using auto-populated public records from RPR. The partnership is a neatly packaged bundle of benefits that not only saves time but alleviates the pain points of having to use two of real estate's most powerful platforms independent of one another.

Here's how to maximize the integration to your advantage in two minutes or less...

Set up the Integration

Sign onto RPR at Search for your subject property. Then, from the RPR Property Details page, most REALTORS® using zipForm will automatically see the zipForm Transactions button. If not, connect by way of your RPR User Profile. Choose Link Accounts and a series of simple prompts will help begin the process. Once complete, the zipForm Transactions button will display on the RPR Property Details page.

You will then have the option to:

  • Go to specific transactions for that property address in zipForm®
  • Start a new transaction for the street address pulled up in RPR
  • Go to the RPR homepage

Creating and Retrieving Transactions From RPR

Access the zipForm® integration by by visiting the RPR Property Details page for the subject property. Then choose zipForm Transactions.

A window will open showing all transactions that match the city and state of the property in RPR. For example, accessing zipForm from a property in Des Moines, IA, will reveal the user's previously created zipForm transactions from Des Moines.

Launch a transaction by clicking the property's hyperlink, or choose Start a new zipForm transaction.

When starting a new zipForm transaction, a confirmation will appear to let you know that the new transaction has been created successfully in zipForm. Select Go to zipForm which opens a new browser tab.

Now from within zipForm, perform the steps to add and remove forms. Click Property to verify the imported public records information. Many form fields will auto-populate, such as address (used as Transaction Name), property full address, FIPS, tax account number, county, legal brief description, APN, legal subdivision name, year built, current owner name and full address, legal lot number, unit, city township, municipality, and block, and recorders book number and page number from assessments. Note: Listing data is not passed to zipForm.
