Update to REALTOR.ca DDF® Data Feeds

The Canadian Real Estate Association is excited to announce as of April 29, all REALTOR.ca DDF® listings will include geocodes in data feeds.  

What does this mean? 
Geocodes allow real estate listings to be automatically and accurately displayed on a map, which is crucial for all real estate websites. 

Previously, REALTOR.ca DDF® was only able to pass the longitude and latitude coordinates for less than 20% of listings from select boards. Because of this, participating members used a separate provider to access geocodes. 

How will your members benefit? 
•    Ability to showcase all properties on a map, without purchasing a geocoding license; 
•    decreased operational costs; 
•    accurate data—listings displayed on a map will all be the same across all REALTOR.ca DDF® sites; and  
•    ability to change where their listing appears on a map for REALTOR.ca and all DDF® sites via member.REALTOR.ca

Contact our Member Experience Centre at support@crea.ca with any questions. You can also review the DDF® programming guide to review all available fields in DDF®.
