November Letter from the CEO: 2020 Data Pricing
This update is of primary interest to those who license our bulk parcel data or are interested in licensing our bulk parcel data as we are raising the price of our nationwide parcel dataset from $25,000/year to $35,000/year on January 1st. This increase will not affect existing customers or customers who join before then.
Our software customers and website users will also find this message interesting in that our underlying data is outstanding and keeps improving.
Jumping in: It’s been a good year.
2019 saw dozens of new companies and research projects license our nationwide parcel data to power applications spanning climate, insurance, energy, agriculture, transportation, conservation, outdoor recreation, and other domains that touch property, housing, and the landscape.
Our team is rocking it on new coverage, new data fields, improved update frequency, more seamless delivery, and everything it takes to not only provide great data, but a great, friendly, and reliable service.
I think it’s fair to say we are the most affordable provider of high quality parcel data by a long shot. People are constantly surprised when they find us. “How’d you do this and where have you been??”
This makes us very, very happy.
To reflect continued improvements in the data and to allow us to invest even more into it, on January 1st, 2020 we’re raising our core nationwide data licensing prices from $25,000/year to $35,000/year.
The vacant buildings dataset and the new buildings count dataset (which can be used to identify both structures and vacant land) will also increase slightly.
This, however, will not affect our current customers, nor will it affect customers who sign up before the end of the year. Everyone in before January 1 will keep their current price, and will be grandfathered into renewing at their current price in the future.
That means if you’ve been on the fence about licensing our data, it’s a really good time. Write to us today at firstname.lastname@example.org to claim the 2019 prices into the future.
As we continue to transition from relative newcomer to the recognized leader in providing parcel data, we will always keep our prices more affordable and our terms more friendly than other suppliers. It’s in our nature as people who believe that knowledge of the land grid is fundamental.
On that note, also check out our API offering if you want to add parcel data to your app, but don’t need to download the whole enchilada: https://landgrid.com/parcel-api.
A very happy Holiday Season to you and yours from our team! Let’s all go into 2020 strong.
