Listings / Property Data

####Rets Rabbit http://www.retsrabbit.com

####Onboard Informatics : Property API https://developer.onboard-apis.com/products/Property-Search-Engine

The Property API provides easy access to over 150 million property records from local public records data. This data may be used for building mobile applications, web applications, SEO landing pages, and many other experiences that can help drive revenue for your business.

In addition to property details, the API also provides access to recent home sales, individual property sales history, recent home valuations as well as tax assessment and liabilities information. Using our API makes every property, whether on or off-market, an opportunity to draw consumers in.

The Retsly platform is middleware that helps you access multiple MLS listing datasets and real estate public records. The data is all delivered in a normalized way through an elegant and familiar RESTful API. Retsly also facilitates managing the necessary data licenses for you and data providers with a standardized approval process. At Retsly we're hoping to spur innovation in real estate, by helping developers build the tools for realtors, brokerages, MLSs and consumers that will revolutionize the industry!

Thanks for the list! I'm looking for an API specifically for rental properties, ideally not needing MLS approval. I'm having trouble finding something, have you come across anything like that? Thanks!

Best API thus far for RETS feed data: https://github.com/opendoor-labs/rets. Best thing - it's free!

Also - a slight nag - SimplyRETS (http://www.simplyrets.com) is running off RESO v1.5, which is outdated by 2 years, and they shuffle around fields and aggregate them poorly - I would strongly recommend not using them as your data provider.

Hi all, I am looking for an API that gives me the price of a property on sale together with relative images. I have tried the Adzuna API but that returns only one small image not visible at all.

@littleeagle12 Rets.ly(Bridge) provides you with a way to request access to MLS data. The data will be available to you once the MLS gives you the okay.

The links for Onboard are broken. I navigated to https://developer.onboard-apis.com and that was redirected to https://api.developer.attomdata.com/home. See ATTOM Data Solutions Acquires Onboard Informatics, Adding Best-in-Class Neighborhood Data | ATTOM Data Solutions.

The descriptions here are not clear. Do they provide real estate that is currently available, not just historical data?

I tried to access the Zillow API links but looks most are broken. For some APIs it's directed to https://www.bridgeinteractive.com/developers/zillow-group-data/ instead. Does this mean most of APIs in this document are out of date now? Shall we use the Bridge API platform instead to access Zillow data now? Please advise. Thanks.

I'm thinking Zillow stopped the free real estate API option recently. I don't see the option to choose the property details API anymore.

We also found the Zillow API very useful in easily obtaining real estate information. We saw that Bridge Interactive was taking over the management of Zillow's API starting Sept 2020, and so we are also very interested in the availability of any free real estate website APIs which could provide basic property details (bd, ba, sq ft, acres) and a fair market value without the need to register with a 3rd party.

Has anyone using Zillow API before moved to Bridge API now? How you did it, can you share your code and Bridge API calls you use now instead of which Zillow API calls?

Bridge Interactive appears to be declining access to their API unless someone has an MLS # or other real estate professional credential.
