LPS will provide RentRange reports to clients seeking rent estimates for real estate-owned (REO) properties and to investors and others wanting established values for properties based on their rental income potential.

"LPS selected RentRange because we felt it offers the best empirically based rental estimates of any product on the market today," said Rob Walker, managing director of LPS Applied Analytics. "RentRange is a powerful tool to help our clients make more informed decisions about real estate in a new and challenging environment." LPS Applied Analytics will provide the RentRange solution to mortgage servicers looking to make sell or hold-and-rent decisions on REO assets, or to calculate rent estimates for their REO properties.
