RETS is used to give brokers, agents and third parties access to listing and transaction data. MLSs nationwide are moving to adopt RETS as the industry standard because it drastically simplifies the process of getting listing data from an MLS to an agent’s site. Key benefits include customization of how the listing data is displayed, fresh listing data, and content added to the site. The one main drawback is that the data feed is impossible to use by itself. In other words, you need trained professional or additional software to make sense of it.
IDX (Internet Data Exchange)
