IRMLS centrally manages and supports MLS data feeds on behalf of all local boards who participate in IRMLS. IRMLS Participants, and their agents with Participant permission, can contact the IRMLS IDX department to request a Data feed. IRMLS will provide the appropriate contract and pricing based on the request. Primarily cost for payment of the MLS data feeds will be the responsibility of the MLS member. Both the Member and the Vendor will be responsible for the cost when using a WebAPI.
IRMLS will be responsible for setting up the data feed, providing access credentials and conducting a compliance audit prior to launch to the public.
The Member will be responsible for completing the required documents, payment of fees, and following all Data access and display rules.

SMART FRAMING: The “rDesk” Smart Frame solution allows IRMLS IDX subscribers to add “real time” property search links to their website. Links include a Map/General search, My Listings search, and My Office search.
