The Open Property Data Association (OPDA) has expanded its executive committee as it continues its drive to transform the house buying process for agents, buyers and vendors.
The trade association wants to change the way people buy and sell houses and is in the process of developing open data standards and encouraging transparent data sharing across the property industry.
EASIER AND QUICKER
It aims to get to a position where every company, in every part of the property chain, hosts data transparently online. This in turn will make the property buying and selling process easier and much quicker.
Maria Harris, Chair of OPDA, says: “The OPDA launched in June this year to transform the way we use data to buy and sell houses.
“Transforming the property sector through digital thinking and data-led solutions needs influential industry firms to lead the way, so having Nick bring his expertise, knowledge and undoubted influence will be hugely beneficial.”
PRINCIPLES OF COLLABORATION
Nick Chadbourne adds: “With principles of collaboration, innovation and digital transformation at its core, the OPDA is perfectly aligned with LMS’ vision for the industry.
“We’re committed to driving positive change and making the entire conveyancing journey efficient and customer centric. This is the key, but it cannot be done without having a fully cohesive data approach. The OPDA will be vital in that.”
OPDA’s executive committee is comprised of 14 industry leaders, technology innovators, and organisations committed to driving positive change. It includes estate agents, conveyancers, mortgage lenders, property and proptech firms.
