The Procedure Realtyna’s MLS Sync
Only ACTIVE listings will be imported. If you need to import other types of listings such as expired, sold, open house etc., you will need the MLS Sync service, which you need to discuss separately with the Realtyna team.All the imported listings will be automatically assigned to the chosen Agent.
If the listings come from the MLS database, it is possible to automatically mark the listings belonging to the respective user/owner (above) as ‘Featured Listings’ as long as the feed provides the respective fields. Adding more agent/office IDs might be subject to extra cost and time.
1.HOSTING ACCESS: In case of a support request, we may need HOSTING ACCESS from the client’s hosting provider (i.e. FTP/Cpanel credentIals and SSH access of root user. We will inform you if we need SSH access).
2.INSTALLATION: The installation is an automated process offered by our plug-in.
3.FEED ACCESS: The client confirms he is eligible for the requested MLS access.
4.CATEGORIES: Listing data is classified into different categories. Each MLS Provider Datasource has their own categories (such as Residential, Rentals, Lots and Land, Commercial etc). We need to know which categories need to be imported into the client’s website.
5.Standard Mapping: Realtyna will map the most commonly used fields by the MLS. Clients can’t decide about the fields or change the system.
6.SYNCHRONIZATION: Data synchronization means importing all the active listings from the source website (e.g. MLS provider’s server). This begins after the mapping phase.
Time frame: Depending on the speed of the source, destination servers, and the number of listings, this process can take 2-14 business days.
7.VERIFICATION – Verification of all the categories.
8.SEARCHABLE FIELDS – Searchable fields are included in the import query and listings, depending on what fields the MLS Provider offers. Realtyna does not control what fields the Board offers. Searchable fields from the board may be: State, County, Zip Code, List Date, MLS ID, Modified, Agent Name, Office Name, Price, Property Type, and Status.
Important fields are described below:
Mlsid => This is a unique Listing ID and has nothing to do with the company providing the listing.
Agent Name=> This is the Agent Namefor the listing agent.
Office Name => This is the Office Name, the Brokerage that owns the listing.
PhotoUrls => Pipe delimited list of listing photo URLs.
9.QUALITY CHECK – The final QC for verifying that the functionality of the search, sorting and etc. is accurate.
10.SYNCHRONIZATION VERIFICATION – Verify that the synchronization is running efficiently.
11.CLIENT APPROVAL – The client will have the opportunity to check the website and acknowledge proper delivery of the Realtyna MLS Sync. Client has the right to cancel the service within 30 days of activation by requesting a refund.
12.AUTOMATIC UPDATES TO YOUR DATA – Once the data has been integrated into your server, we will set the system to update the properties at a selected interval. Once this is completed, we will ask for confirmation that the project is finished.
13.MLS Compliance Requirements: Specifically for MLS Sync, the next step is meeting the “Standard” MLS compliance rules. These rules include adding disclaimers and MLS logos on the website.
