Data Distribution Facility or DDF™ was created by CREA (Canadian Real Estate Association) to allow its members to easily display MLS® (Multiple Listings Service) listings to their websites and ensure that the content displayed is always accurate and up to date and is compliant with CREA's trademarks and branding. Members of CREA can register to receive this data feed for their National Shared Pool and Member websites. Once registered, members need to set up their site to receive the data feed.
For users of our proprietary content management system, Site.DFiner, we have developed a DDF™Feed plug-in which allows us to build real estate websites for entire brokerages or individual agents alike. The plug-in connects with CREA via DDF™ allowing the Realtors to select from all listings in the National Pool as well as displaying their own listings.
The advantage compared to other services such as IDX is that those listings are directly stored on the realtors website allowing them to generate leads from listings owned by third party brokerages.
We at Pinpoint Media Design see this plug-in as a milestone for Real Estate website development and know that this plug-in adds tremendous value to our client's websites.
Meet the Sold on Barrie Real Estate team who are using our DDF listings plug in feed on their website.
