WordPress Plugin With Multiple RETS Feed Support3 min read
Realtyna’s Organic MLS Integration for WordPress offers multiple RETS feed support.
This means if you are an agent or broker who is a member of multiple real estate boards you can import and host listings from each and co-mingle them into a single searchable database (as long as it is not prohibited by your MLS).
This can give your users the ability to search properties across state lines and compare properties from a wider range of sources.
WHAT IS ORGANIC MLS INTEGRATION?
Organic MLS Integration is a software suite for WordPress that can connect your website to an MLS database via RETS, import listings, and display them for front-end user searches.
Because these listings are indexable by search engines, Organic MLS Integration offers you the strongest possible SEO foundation for your site: https://realtyna.com/blog/best-wordpress-idx-for-seo/
Because it utilizes a direct connection to your MLS, there is no better listing accuracy: https://realtyna.com/blog/9-reasons-to-do-organic-idx-integration/
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Organic MLS Integration will connect to the RETS database with login credentials issued by the MLS. The listings data will be imported via cron jobs, stored in tables on your website server, and updated at a regular interval. The listings then will regenerate on your site in the form of an indexable WordPress page: https://realtyna.com/mls-integration-for-wpl/
Organic MLS Integration offers a suite of options to personalize your listings display. For example, you will have the ability to:
1) Define new fields to add to your listings
2) Change the style and order of your search bar
3) Choose what page to display your IDX search
4) Toggle contact agent preferences
5) Add new options to sort property results
HOW DOES IT SUPPORT MULTIPLE RETS FEEDS?
All you need for Organic MLS Integration to support multiple RETS feeds is login credentials for each feed. The software will connect to each database, import listings from each, and display them together on the front-end. There may be some data standardizing necessary as each RETS database is slight different, but this process is completed by Realtyna engineers complimentarily with your purchase. Whether you have all of your feeds ready now or are looking to add new ones progressively over the coming months or year, we can accommodate your business model and growth plans.
WHAT ELSE DO I NEED TO KNOW?
Hosting listings data from multiple RETS feeds may require a hosting upgrade as the new data load could surpass 100GBs. The software can support third-party hosting that meets the following system requirements: https://support.realtyna.com/index.php?/Default/Knowledgebase/Article/View/529/28/system-requirements-for-using-wpl
