Zoocasa removed as third party destination in RAHB listing syndication
In May, Zoocasa became a licensed brokerage in the province of Ontario. This new business model introduced a new website which does not display listings in accordance with RAHB’s guidelines and as a result their third party feed has been disabled.
Zoocasa has also been removed from CREA’s DDF™ console as a third party destination. As per the terms of the DDF™ third party agreement which prohibits third parties from being involved in providing real estate services, Zoocasa is no longer eligible to participate in CREA’s DDF™ as a third party.
Point2 Dashboard – Reminder
All MLS® listings are automatically uploaded to Point2 for distribution to third party destinations – that is, to real estate advertising websites. All members have the ability to manage the destinations for their listings or to opt out of Point2 syndication if their Broker of Record allows.
Members control the syndication destinations for their active listings by choosing the destination for each of their listings via the Point2 dashboard. Each listing is, by default, set to “on” for all syndication destinations chosen by the Broker of Record as “allowed destinations”. (If the Broker of Record has not set up preferences for his/her company listings using the Point2 dashboard, all listings are by default uploaded to all Point2 destination websites.)
Salespeople, Brokers and Brokers of Record who have not yet logged into their dashboards to manage their preference settings are urged to do so. Every member with a listing when Point2 was launched would have received information about how to access their dashboard; members who have not logged in at all may have had their dashboards deactivated. Members who don’t know how to access or use their dashboards or who haven’t used their dashboards should contact Point2’s customer service to have their dashboards (re-)activated. Contact Point2 customer service at 1.866.977.1777 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Current Point 2 Destination Websites:
Trovit S.L. (Canada)

Mitula Homes (Canada)
Homes and Land Affiliates LLC

Remember: your active listings are automatically uploaded to Point2 destinations unless you and/or your Broker of Record have opted out of the upload. Use your Point2 dashboard to manage the destination websites for your listings.
