Recent MLS & Feed Updates

In addition to all of the GREAT Showcase IDX WordPress plugin updates and enhancements we have recently rolled out, our dedicated data team remains hyper-focused on keeping up with the latest MLS changes and compliances, so you can stay focused on what you do best!

Check out these MLS updates to the Showcase IDX WordPress Plugin!

Feed migrations for (changing how the data is transferred from an MLS to the consumer; e.g. switching from Real Estate Transaction Standards “RETS” data feeds to “Web API” protocol):

This includes working hard to keep in compliance with the latest National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) mandates requiring all listings displayed in an IDX to identify the listing firm, as well as clearly display the email or phone number provided by the listing brokerage in a reasonably prominent location. This is no quick or simple task as there are hundreds of MLSs, and each has its own set of compliance requirements, data formats, and updates!

The team is actively receiving and following up on multiple notifications from each MLS indicating which specific data field(s) they are providing this information in. As we work to implement these new requirements you may not find many listings that include the phone or email yet. This is because either the MLS has not yet populated that information, or they have just notified us about which data field(s) to use and we are actively working to implement it.
