MLS integration service

MLS integration service is offered by most of real estate software providers and we are not an exception. Estatik Pro can be integrated with any MLS provider via RETS or IDX but on individual custom basis. Please go on reading to get full information about service.

What is MLS integration

MLS or Multiple Listing Service is a database of listings created and maintained by real estate professionals. It contains full information about broker's listings and allows to pull it with the help of special technologies like RETS or IDX. In result of integration all listings placed on MLS provider website are imported to broker/agent real estate website.

Methods of MLS integration

There are three methods of MLS integration: RETS (Real Estate Transaction Service), IDX Framing (Internet Data Exchange) and IDX FTP. IDX Framing simply displays MLS listings on your website via iFrame, i.e. there is no real transfer of your listings. This method is simple in development but poor for your website design and SEO. IDX via FTP means that mls listings will be transfered to your website from MLS website via ftp. Here you can select intervals how often it should transfer listings. RETS integration is so-called organic MLS integration and is done via RETS technology which was launched later than IDX via FTP protocol but becomes more popular now.
