PARTICIPANT DATA FEED INFORMATION
Various data is available via RETS or Web API to those who are entitled to, had an official application approved by, and subsequently contracted with Metro MLS for a data feed. It is highly suggested that all current and future data licensees take advantage of the Platinum RESO compliant Web API(s) that are available as RETS will be sunset soon.
NON-PARTICIPANT (SUBSCRIBER) OPTIONS
Non-Participant Subscribers are not eligible for a direct data feed except in the case of Virtual Office Websites (described below). If a non-Participant wishes to display listings on their website, the listing display must only be a “frame” of either their Participant’s office website, WiHomes.com or the Realtor.com listing search and subsequent results. Framing means anywhere the search results are displayed, the results are displayed identically to the broker site (all elements, must appear in the same sizes, colors, fonts positions, etc. – when viewing side by side).
PARTICIPANT FEED APPLICATION
All requests for new Participant feeds must be applied for through the web application to the right. All other forms of application will be rejected and referred to the web application. This method allows us to expeditiously review your application and ultimately provide an approved feed to you quickly. Participants (i.e., broker-owners or brokerage principals as defined in the Rules and Regulations) have the data feeds described below available to them.
Display and back-office vendors (defined as “Consultants” in the application and Content License Agreement) desiring to receive a data feed to power their product for a Participant may apply on behalf of the Participant, but any set-up or license fees will only be billed to the Participant.
