RETS Data feeds SUNSET (SHUTOFF)- October 15, 2024

LEARN MORE ABOUT DATA FEEDS

WHAT IS A DATA FEED?

A data feed is a defined set of listing data from the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) provided to a brokerage, agent, vendor, or other authorized entity.

What is a data feed license?

The data feed license authorizes an agent, broker, or vendor to receive listing content from LRMLS for use as defined by the terms of the license. Access to LRMLS data will not be granted until an agreement is in place with both the Vendor and the Brokerage.

WHAT LISTING DATA FEEDS ARE AVAILABLE?

LRMLS offers feeds for the Internet Data Exchange (IDX), Virtual Office Website (VOW), and Brokerage Back Office products.

  • The IDX data product offers access to the listing content most often used to create “home” search internet products. 
  • The Virtual Office Website (or VOW) data product gives access to the content necessary to provide virtual office real estate services to your buyer and seller clients. The listing content provided with this data product contains listing information and media content for all listings.
  • The Broker Back Office product includes more sensitive listing information, including expiration dates. No public record information is given. The Back Office data product allows brokers to streamline back-office brokerage functions by importing LRMLS listings associated with the firm into listing management and accounting tools, and displays the firm’s active listings on the firm’s website. The Back Office product is not available for agents. The listing content provided in this data product includes all listing statuses.

RETS TO API TRANSITION

The legacy RETS (Real Estate Transaction Standard) is being replaced by the RESO (Real Estate Standards Organization) Web API. This new standard offers many advantages including scalability, better compliance with third-party applications, and more streamlined delivery of MLS data via real-time queries.

  • LRMLS began transitioning to API data feeds via The Spark® Datamart on April 1, 2024. 
  • LRMLS no longer offers new RETS data feeds.
  • Existing RETS data feeds will be supported until October 15, 2024, to allow for vendor migration to API-based feeds via The Spark® Datamart.
  • To convert an existing RETS data feed to API please contact your website vendor/developer.
