IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - October 13, 2016) - ATTOM Data Solutions, the nation's leading source for comprehensive property data, and UtilityScore, a national provider of utility data, today announced a data licensing agreement making ATTOM Data Solutions the exclusive bulk data provider of UtilityScore data.
UtilityScore's nationwide data, now available in the ATTOM Data Warehouse, includes annual and monthly electric bills, natural gas bills, and water/sewer bills, along with neighborhood-level utility costs.
"We're pleased to add the innovative UtilityScore data element to the expanding ATTOM Data Warehouse," said Rob Barber, chief executive officer at ATTOM Data Solutions. "Fused with our existing property data elements, utility costs will be immediately applicable for many bulk data customers, including lenders, online real estate portals, home builders, big box retailers, solar companies, cable companies, home appliance manufacturers, home security companies and government agencies."
UtilityScore is the new standard metric to compare utility costs of homes and is the first to build complex proprietary models for every home in the U.S. They calculate utility cost and savings estimates using more than 7,000 local utility rates, property characteristics such as size and age, along with regional climate data. Each home is assigned a score between 1 and 100 to show how its utility costs stack up with others in the area, with 100 representing a very low utility bill and 1 representing a very high utility bill.
"We have built the most comprehensive and accurate dataset of utility costs for homes throughout the U.S., and it's going to change the way people buy, rent and renovate homes," said Brian Gitt, founder and CEO of UtilityScore.
