Our platform is safer and more accountable when people stand behind their opinions and actions. For this reason, you must

  • Provide accurate and correct information;
  • Avoid creating fake accounts;
  • Avoid creating multiple accounts;

Access to the services is prohibited if:

  • We’ve previously disabled your account for violations of our terms or conditions.
  • The person is legally prohibited from participating in real estate transactions and activities.

 

 

5. How RealtyFeed® RESO Web API App works

 

Realtyna is the official vendor of hundreds of MLS providers in the US/Canada. This means we are allowed to serve MLS data to MLS members’ websites and applications by following our vendors’ agreements with MLS providers. In addition, we have the necessary tools and services, allowing real estate agents/brokers and Real Estate Associations to add their listings on the RealtyFeed® database directly, which is mainly useful to Real Estate markets outside US/Canada. 

RealtyFeed® RESO Web API App allows subscribed agents/brokers to showcase their listings (including MLS listings) to potential clients. The app rebrands with the agent’s profile and contact information and loads only relevant data of that particular agent. 

In the case of MLS data, the normal MLS approval process is needed for activating access to that particular MLS data, meaning the agent needs to be a member of the MLS and appoint Realtyna as their vendor with the MLS.

In case you are using an existing RESO Web API access with your RealtyFeed® app, you need to have full authorization from your MLS provider for such use-case. Any claim from your MLS provider about usage of such access, you will be solely accountable and responsible.

End users (App users) can load the app based on their preferred agent, browse and search listings, bookmark listings, share them with others and contact their agent via phone or inquiry form. For some actions, such as contacting their agent or bookmarking listings, these end-users need to sign up/sign in.

 

 

6. Privileged® Listing 

 

6.1.What the Privileged® Listing Service Is

Privileged® is a registered trademark of Realtyna Inc.  Privileged® Listings have two different sections. One is header which is searchable and the other is content which is considered confidential information and protected by privacy/confidential data laws. A customer/client can decide what kind of information to include in the Privileged® Listing header and which fields and data to be in the content section. However, the minimum required fields for header are listing title, listing description and one cover photo. The Price, Address, Additional Photos and Documents can be decided by the listing owner.

Access to Privileged® Listings can be requested directly or anonymously or through a buyer agent to avoid discrimination of people based on race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, and disability. This is called the Privileged® Buyer process. Once the access is shared and the “Handshake” happens, all participating parties will be able to view the full information about the Privileged® Listing and in case the request is made anonymously, the buyer’s information will also be available for the listing agent/responsible person. This is to comply with the fair housing policy laws and regulations.

 

6.2.Privileged® Listing Terms of Service

Privileged® Listing can be used as a robust lead generation tool following the Privacy Terms and Condition provided in this section. However, Clients/Customers should ensure that its use for this purpose does not violate any Privileged® Listings Terms and Conditions. Failure to do so will be deemed unauthorized and as a result  serious measures will be taken in the event of any such breach.

Privileged® Listing by definition is a non-public listing and must not be published anywhere else publicly. If we find that it is listed somewhere else publicly, then the Privileged® Listing status will be automatically suspended, the listing will be unpublished and a warning will be sent to the agent/responsible person. If such a case repeats three times we will suspend the agent’s/responsible person’s account. 

It is a violation of our terms and conditions of the Privileged® Listing if abused in the following unauthorized ways:

1.It is a fake listing

2.The listing is not available anymore (meaning that the listing agent/responsible person did not update the listing status within 48 hours set limit after it was sold/off market) and is used for lead generation purposes

3.The listing is published somewhere else

All of the points mentioned above are considered as an unauthorized lead generation strategy and are prohibited for use.

Customers/clients who receive access to any of the Privileged® Listings, should follow our terms and conditions. Such a customer/client is not allowed to share the listing information publicly or with unauthorized third parties. In such cases publishing confidential information will be treated based on the laws and regulations of Delaware State, US. 

To ensure the authenticity and accuracy of data after each privileged request and response, we send evaluation forms to all relevant parties. The response on these evaluations will be the basis for subsequent actions. 

If any of these rules are violated by the User/Client/Customer, Realtyna/RealtyFeed® is not liable for any damages. 

To help support our community, we encourage you to report content that you believe violates your rights or our terms and policies. You can also contact us at [email protected] 

 

6.3. Privileged® Listing Partnership

If Realtyna/RealtyFeed® has an exclusive partnership with an MLS from your area, to access Privileged® Listing Service, you need to contact an MLS that we have a partnership with. Privileged® Listing can be used for marketing by our customers/clients who use Privileged® Listing services. 

 

 

7. Clients’/Customers’ Obligations

 

7.1. In case of accessing MLS data, the Real Estate agent/broker must provide accurate information that will be communicated to the MLS provider for approval.

 

7.2. In the case of adding listings directly to the RealtyFeed® portal, you agree;

  • To add information that you are legally permitted, 
  • To provide accurate information, meaning the listings should be real (not fake), accurate details, pictures, pricing, and correct market status (active, pending, closed). 

 

7.3. Using the RealtyFeed® platform as a fake lead generation tool is prohibited and is considered a violation of our terms and conditions. 

We can remove or restrict access to content that violates these provisions.

Suppose we remove content you have shared violating our terms and conditions. In that case, we’ll let you know and explain any options you have to request a review. However, if you seriously or repeatedly violate these terms or if doing so exposes us or others to legal liability, harm our community of users, compromise or interfere with the integrity or operation of any of our services, systems, or products, where we are restricted due to technical limitations, or where we are prohibited from doing so for legal reasons, we will remove your content permanently.

To help support our community, we encourage you to email us at [email protected] if necessary.
