SANTA ANA, Calif., August 24, 2015First American Financial Corporation (NYSE: FAF), a leading provider of title insurance, settlement services and risk solutions for real estate transactions, today announced that its DataTree property research solution is the first to offer a comprehensive collection of residential building characteristic data for Orange County, Calif. properties sourced directly from the Orange County Assessor’s office. These data sets include characteristics such as square footage, bedroom/bathroom counts and construction year. Professionals in the mortgage, real estate and land services industries, who rely on these data in their business, can access the residential building characteristic data via DataTree.com, which is designed to be the fastest, most comprehensive and easiest to use property research solution on the market.

“For many years, the Orange County building characteristic data found in most real estate research products was outdated and sometimes inaccurate,” said Dianna Serio, senior vice president of enterprise data strategy, First American. “Given First American’s Orange County roots and our commitment to our customers, we recently added data from the assessor’s office, which makes our data the most current and accurate in the market. We’re proud to be the first to offer the real estate business community convenient and affordable access to these public records through DataTree.com.

“To obtain accurate and up-to-date residential building characteristic data for Orange County, professionals must go directly to the assessor’s office, which takes time and resources,” said Serio. “Now these data sets may be accessed by professionals quickly and conveniently through DataTree.com from their laptop computers or mobile devices. In turn, this allows them to better serve their customers as they research properties in Orange County.”
