Homemetry is a real estate information site that compiles comprehensive reports on real properties and makes them available to interested persons. The site provides information on homes, apartments for rent, properties in a particular neighborhood, real property values, and other related information. The site gathers real estate data from government records and other private sources.

To access property information, web visitors can enter an address into the site’s search tool. Individuals can also search for properties on sale or rent. Furthermore, properties can be searched by state or city.

While visitors can see property listings and certain information for free, only paying visitors can obtain an extensive property report. The report provides the following details:

  • The property owner’s and tenants’ information
  • Location of the property
  • Ownership transfer information
  • Last market sale information and the latest assessment
  • Prior sale information
  • Site information
  • Property tax and lien information
  • Property characteristics (rooms, materials, parking spaces)
  • Fire incident history
  • Extra features

Homemetry only dispenses public property data. However, the site may also collect certain information from its visitors, including names, email addresses, credit card details, billing addresses, and other information that a visitor voluntarily submits on the site. For instance, when registering, updating a profile, using the site, submitting an email address, or buying property reports from the site.

The information Homemetry collects from visitors is not disclosed to the general public unless necessary. For instance, to comply with a legal requirement.

Anyone who sees their property information or profile on Homemetry can remove it by following the site’s opt-out process. Removing this information from the site makes it inaccessible to visitors.

How to Opt-Out of Homemetry

An opt-out request can remove an individual’s information or real property details from Homemetry. However, since the information on site is generally available to the public, deleting it does not wipe it off other data broker sites or the source’s records. To opt-out of Homemetry, follow these steps:

  1. Visit the Homemetry website.
  2. Use the search engine on the homepage to find the listing to be deleted.
  3. Click on the appropriate listing from the results.
  4. On the profile, search and click the “Information Control” link.
  5. Select the details to remove and click “Apply.”
  6. Type your email address and name in the appropriate query boxes
  7. A confirmation email will be sent to the email address. Confirm your opt-out request by clicking the link embedded in the email.

Alternatively, after finding the listing to remove, copy the URL, input it into the query box on the site’s Opt-Out Request page, and click “Send Request.” A person can also send the URL to Homemetry via email at removalshomemetry@homemetry.com.

The profile should be removed from the site within 48 hours.

What Difficulties Exist when Opting Out of Homemetry

The property information indexed by Homemetry is aggregated from multiple public sources. Therefore, opting out of the site does not remove the data from the primary source and other third-party sites. As such, persons who have to send requests for each site or source may find the entire process difficult and stressful.

Also, because the information remains publicly available, the site may recall the data in the future. It is not uncommon for removed property records to reappear in subsequent search results as long as they are still available from other public sources.

Plus, members of the public can find multiple personal or real property profiles. The site only allows the removal of one record at a time. Therefore, each listing will have to be removed separately.

To contact Homemetry about any problem encountered while opting out of the site, individuals can call (617) 333-8436, Mondays through Fridays between 9:30 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. Saturday calls are only attended to between 10:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
