Data Delivery

The Vail Multi-List Service has many options for the display of listings on both agents’ Real Estate websites and third-party websites.

Data Distribution/Syndication

Where your listings go, and how they get there.

Do you ever wonder how your listings ended up on a third-party website? This is called syndication, in which consumer search websites receive listings from the MLS and display them on their sites (often referred to as portals). At VMLS, this occurs via a data feed from Flex that brokers control.

In Flex, brokers and agents can opt out of the display of their listings to third-party portals. This is located in the Broker Distribution tab on a listing-by-listing basis.

When selected, this opts the listing OUT of syndication display.

We also partner with ListHub as a distribution option.

API Options

Internet Data Exchange (IDX) allows brokers and agents to display listings on their real estate websites. IDX refers to a set of fields in the MLS that are allowed for public display on the Internet.

VMLS offers a variety of API options, which differ from syndication feeds.  Spark API is our provider for IDX solutions and is integrated into FlexMLS.

We can work directly with your website developer or vendor to get what they need to gain a Data License and begin displaying your listings.
