What they’re saying

“REALTOR.ca DDF® has allowed us to integrate with a single data provider and unlock all of Canada as a potential market for our business. It has also given members from smaller boards who may not have the in-house technology required to allow their agents to have automatic listing functionality on their websites and the ability to operate on the same level as their larger market colleagues.”

What real estate boards do you work with?

REALTOR.ca DDF® is operated by the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA). We work with all boards and associations in Canada and REALTORS® from these boards choose whether to send their data to other websites via REALTOR.ca DDF®. Currently, Manitoba and Quebec boards and associations do not participate in the National Shared Pool.

What is the difference between IDX, VOW, and DDF®?

VOW – Virtual office websites allow visitors to register with a brokerage’s website using a password and to search the website for MLS® System listings. VOW feeds often include private remarks and sold prices which are governed by different rules than IDX and REALTOR. Ca DDF® data feeds.

IDX – An internet data exchange allows brokerages, through reciprocal agreements, to display each other’s listings on their websites for advertising purposes.

DDF® – Similar to IDX, REALTOR.ca DDF® is for advertising purposes, however only REALTOR.ca DDF® can provide the quantity of listings, the accuracy of data and the level of security that your business requires.

How often do you update the listing data?

Listing data is updated an average of 46 times per day.
