Having the most accurate and reliable property information is essential to performing accurate analysis and projections for the properties you’re analyzing.
DealCheck has created integrations with several property data providers to allow you to import property data from public records and active listings for further analysis. This feature is available for most US properties and does not require an MLS license.
Here is some of the data you'll be able to import:
- Property features, including the property type, number of bedrooms & bathrooms, living area size, lot size, year built, parking type and more
- Several estimates of the property's market value and potential gross rent
- If the property is listed for sale - its listing price, date, status and agent
- The property's recent sale history, including sold dates and prices
- The assessed value of the property, including the assessed value of the land and improvements
- The most recent property tax amounts
- Estimated property insurance premiums and HOA fees (when applicable)
- Property photos

Step 5: Import the Property
Once you've confirmed that this is the property you're interested in analyzing, click the Import Property button at the bottom of the page to add it to your account:
Tip: You can also click "Import & Customize" to jump right into customizing the property's Purchase Worksheet.
Step 6: Customize any Additional Deal Parameters
After importing property data, many of the data fields will be filled out for you.
It's still a good idea to look over the property's Purchase Worksheet page and customize any additional deal parameters, like the financing you're going to use, closing costs, projected expenses or the rehab budget:
