REIN Data Feed Information

For a fee, and provided they are sponsored by a REIN Broker Member, a Vendor may request to receive REIN listings information through a RETS Internet Data Exchange (IDX) Data Feed, Virtual Office Website (VOW) Data Feed, and Analytic Data Feed for products and services offered to REIN's membership. Vendors may not use the REIN IDX data feed for services provided to others outside the REIN membership.

REIN Rules and Regulations

REIN's IDX, VOW and Analytic rules are outlined in section 6 of the Rules and Regulations. However, vendors licensing a REIN data feed must agree to abide by ALL of REIN's Rules and Regulations. A current copy of the Rules and Regulations is always available by contacting support@reininc.com. If a pending (signed the REIN MLS Data Access & License Agreement) or approved vendor violates REIN's rules and agreements, the vendor is subject to being issued violation fees as outlined in #23 of the Vendor Data Feed Frequently Asked Questions.

New Data Feed Product Request Process

  1. Vendor completes a REIN Sponsorship Form and submits it to REIN via email support@reininc.com or fax 757.531.7911. This form includes vendor and product information, and must be signed by a current REIN Broker Member who will be using the Vendor's product. Please refer to the Sponsorship Form Guide to walk you through the correct way to complete the form.
  2. REIN staff performs the following actions:
    • gathers information regarding the prospective product or service (on initial contact)
    • analyze the information for potential conflicts with REIN Rules and Regulations
    • schedule a demonstration to view how REIN listing data would be used with the product (no REIN listing data is provided for the demo)
    • evaluate product/service via the demonstration and REIN's internal Acceptable Use Worksheet document
    • approve/reject or defer for further review (contact the vendor)
  3. Once the product is approved, REIN staff will contact the Vendor, who must then review and sign the REIN MLS Data Access & License Agreement, agreeing to all terms and conditions, including to abide by REIN's Rules and Regulations. Fees are due at this time.
  4. Next, REIN provides RETS access credentials to the Vendor for use in developing or testing the product/service; this will be a partial data feed until the product/service passes a full compliance review. Vendors may refer to the Data Feeds and RETS Information provided below to access data field lists (translations to use when accessing REIN data, information allowed on IDX data fields, data resource types), technical specifications, etc. A Vendor may contact REIN Technical Support to discuss the available data fields for a VOW or Analytic data feed.
  5. REIN staff will work with the Vendor through launch of the product/service, and will conduct Compliance Review(s) prior to "Go Live"
  6. "Go Live" date must occur within 90 days of signing the Data Access & License Agreement unless otherwise negotiated with REIN.
  7. On-going administration/monitoring and reporting as outlined in the license agreement:
    • Vendor agrees to provide Required Monthly Reports to REIN; the Monthly Report Form Guide will walk you through the correct way to submit this report
    • Vendor must notify REIN of all updates, enhancements or changes to existing products/services for compliance review
    • NEW products/services must go through the full "New Data Feed Product Request Process", starting with #1 above
