Bright MLS IDX Providers: There is a New Vendor in Town3 min read
Bright MLS is one of the newest and largest MLS in the United States, serving 9 MLS in the Mid-Atlantic area covering parts of 6 states. It was created in 2016 to streamline the homebuying process in this densely populated area as well as aid in the fragmented real estate industry in the United States.
As of August 2018, Realtyna became an IDX Vendor of Bright MLS. Below we will discuss what that means for you, how Realtyna can help you and how to get started.
WHAT IS A BRIGHT MLS VENDOR?
Bright MLS offers IDX solutions to its members which allows you to connect your real estate website to the MLS via a RETS feed. This is exclusive and sensitive data that is not available to everyone. RETS feed access can vary depending on your standing or position, which can sometimes make getting a feed directly from your MLS difficult. Vendors are here to solve that problem.
RETS vendors, like Realtyna, partner up with the MLS to take on most of the complicated leg work and allow easier and more efficient access to the RETS feed to more members. Working with a vendor will save you time, effort, and possibly some money.
WHAT CAN REALTYNA DO AS A VENDOR?
Realtyna is a real estate technology company specializing in WordPress real estate websites and Organic MLS Integration. With Realtyna as your vendor, you will get a world-class real estate website for 1 price, organic MLS listings, lead capture features, and options for additional upgrades.
