Overseas Real Estate Industry

Goals

To determine answers to the following questions for New Zealand , United States of America , Canada , Singapore , Hong Kong , and United Kingdom:
  • What main/major property database/directories, real estate agents use to research and prospect for new business (eg. Australia's one is Corelogic RpData / APM Pricefinder) (https://www.corelogic.com.au/) (https://www.pricefinder.com.au/)
  • If property owner's contact details are sometimes missing from the property data (see how you can find this out, get sample data if you can or reviews/feedback/frustrations expressed by real estate agents)
  • See if the issue is because of the Privacy Laws for that particular country that forces the main property databases/directories to not reveal all of the property owner's contact details, and forces the real estate agent to become a private investigator and complete the research themselves (eg. Australia has the Privacy Act 1988 - https://www.oaic.gov.au/privacy/the-privacy-act/ / and Do Not Call Register - https://www.donotcall.gov.au/ both which is the reason why RpData / Pricefinder do not reveal property owner's contact details for some properties that are searched)
  • What other search directories they use to compliment/complete the property owner's contact details (eg. Australian real estate agents use: WhitePages - https://www.whitepages.com.au/ / Pipl - https://pipl.com/ / Google / skip tracing tools like Detective Desk - https://www.detectivedesk.com.au/ / ASIC Company Search - https://asic.gov.au/online-services/search-asics-registers/companies-and-organisations/ / etc.)
