Realist2 Quick Start Navigation Guide

Realist2 links public record information with MLS data, providing property data, street and assessor maps, and market information.
The assessor's tax roll data makes up the core of the Realist2 property record. The Realist2 database is updated annually with certified assessment values and any other changes in the assessor's property characteristics.
Realist2 is updated with deed and mortgage information as often as daily. But there may be a lag between the actual settlement of the sale or mortgage and our ability to access the recording information. The information will be made available through Realist2 as soon as practical after the information is available from the recorder.

The video to the right presents a 1:04 minute introduction/overview of Realist2.
Hint! Click the lower right hand corner of the video's tool bar to view in "Full Screen."
