This is an important reminder changes are coming to REALTOR.ca DDF® data feeds on April 1, 2021.
For years, REALTOR.ca DDF® has made it easier for REALTORS® to showcase listings on their personal website through data feeds.
Due to the technical nature of setting up these data feeds, most REALTORS® enlist a technology provider’s help to set up and maintain the data feeds on their website. More than 650 technology providers currently work with REALTORS® across Canada and have access to data feeds, and supporting services, with no associated fees.
To ensure CREA offers the best—and only—national data feeds to our members, the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) is introducing a tiered pricing model for technology providers to access feeds and supporting services. The pricing model is structured to allow technology providers of all sizes to continue to provide their services to REALTORS® without interruption. This pricing model also better aligns with current market standards for data services and will allow CREA to provide REALTOR.ca DDF® data feeds for the long term. This new fee structure for technology providers will come into effect on April 1, 20201.
By introducing new charges to technology providers, CREA understands members may be impacted through increased service prices or technology providers choosing not to provide service anymore.
In the rare case of disruptions or rate increases, they have a complete list of technology providers who can ensure your website can continue receiving listings from REALTOR.ca DDF®.
