The December Interface Update took place yesterday, December 1. As a result, you’ll see a change to interfaces within your Point® software.
BuildFax has been added to the Services menu under Verifications in Point. BuildFax™, a division of BUILDERadius, is the creator of the first and only national database of historical building permit data. Co-headquartered in Austin, Texas and Asheville, North Carolina, BuildFax™ has created a proprietary property intelligence engine that contains building and permitting information from 4,000+ cities and counties throughout the country. Local building departments in each of these towns across the country inspect construction to make sure it meets quality and safety standards; as such it is an absolutely critical part of the public safety infrastructure. BuildFax™ is then able to consolidate this information into the dataset, which is a tremendous asset to professionals in the insurance, financial services, inspection, and appraisal industries, as well as buyers and sellers of property. As the best and only source of a structure’s “life story,” the BuildFax™ database continues to grow, currently covering over 72 million residential and commercial properties in the United States, with over 6 billion data points.
Remember, every month we add new service providers to our software. This enables you to have the tools you need to success right at your fingertips. Be on the lookout of our monthly blog about new Interfaces in Point!
