The California Real Estate Technology Services (CARETS) Data Feed Has Split Up; How Does This Affect You?
Due to the departure of CRMLS (California Regional Multiple Listing Service) from the CARETS data exchange group, VCRDS (Ventura County Data Services) no longer has access to CRMLS listings. Conversely, CRMLS no longer has access to VCRDS listings.
Both VCRDS and CRMLS will continue to share listing data with SRAR’s CRISNet MLS, the iTech MLS and The MLS/CLAW.
What does this mean for Southern California Agent’s IDX solutions? What does it mean for RealtyTech IDX123clients?
RealtyTech will continue to provide their clients an IDX with the maximum value possible while remaining in concordance with the recent updates to the data sharing policies.
“Basically if you are a member of, say, Southland Regional Association of Realtors and subsequently a CRISNet Member, you will continue to have the old CARETS feed with all former CARETS members,” said RealtyTech CEO Richard Uzelac.
RealtyTech clients who are members of CRISNet, SRAR, or iTech will continue to have full access to listing data from all CARETS members as well as CRMLS.
Clients who are members of CRMLS will no longer receive listing data from VCRDS but will continue to receive listing data from CRISNet, SRAR and iTech.
Clients who are members of VCRDS will no longer receive listing data from CRMLS but will continue to receive listing data from all other CARETS members.
“Our clients who are going to benefit the most from how we are keeping our data are members of CRISNet and iTech,” said RealtyTech Senior Account Executive Lance Grove. “They will still be receiving CRMLS data which some providers will no longer support.”
