Eugene, Oregon (PressExposure) June 26, 2009 -- RETS is an acronym for Real Estate Transaction Standard. The RETS standard has become the de-facto emerging standard for MLS data transactions nationwide. Still, MLS's across the nation have only begun to provide IDX data based on RETS. RMLS members are fortunate to belong to an innovative and forward-thinking MLS!
âWeâre pleased to be able to offer this service to IDX Broker and our other third party vendors on behalf of our subscribers,â said Kurt von Wasmuth, Senior Vice President of RMLSâ¢. âWe believe it will help them better serve their clients with more timely access to MLS data.â
IDX Inc., an Oregon provider of IDX solutions for agents and offices nationwide, connects the IDX Broker software with RMLS listing transaction data via the new RETS server. IDX Broker software interprets RETS feeds and then maps those feeds to the appropriate IDX data fields. This provides many local Northwest brokers with a way to further leverage their membership in RMLS in order to broker more properties.
Below are some benefits of using RETS for local IDX feeds:
Â· Rapid refresh of RMLS active listing data. Â· RMLS Open House listings. Â· Additional RMLS fields available for search/results pages.
âWe have long enjoyed our partnership with the Regional Multiple Listing Service in Oregonâ Says Chad Barczak, CEO of IDX, Inc. âWe are proud to be one of the first IDX providers in the area to offer the RMLS data using the new RETS system they have put into place!â
IDX, Inc. is one of the largest IDX providers of RETS available data available nationwide with over 100 of the 275+ data feeds under management being delivered via RETS.
