New Fire Factor Tool Identifies Wildfire Risk

Fire Factor is now live on realtor.com!

 

On May 16, 2022, Realtor.com® announced that listings will now include wildfire risk data at the individual property level, including U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service wildfire risk assessments and a new Fire Factor™ feature.

 

With this integration, consumers now have access to hard-to-find information about wildfire risk and can explore interactive maps when viewing individual properties. You can also find information on riskfactor.com.

 

Fire Factor™ provides more accurate natural hazard mapping with full transparency and disclosure. Because Forest Service wildfire maps do not offer property-level information, many consumers have been buying properties before learning of the risk, increasing the potential for lawsuits and undermining confidence in home purchases. Fire Factor™ can help by providing consumers with credible wildfire risk tools while filling in the information gaps about wildfires and property risk.

To learn more, visit the Fire Factor™ FAQs page.
