Big List of Real Estate APIs

Listings / Property Data

####Rets Rabbit

Rets Rabbit removes the nightmare of importing thousands of real estate listings and photos from RETS or ListHub and gives you an easy to use import and Web API server so you can focus on building your listing search powered website or app.

####Onboard Informatics : Property API

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!


SimplyRETS is a platform for developers and agents to build real estate applications and websites with the listing and market data from your MLS.

####Onboard Informatics : Points of Interest API

The Onboard Points of Interest (POI) API allows a developer to access Points of Interest that represent 15 categories and over 120 lines of business. Points of interest can let your end users know what it’s like to live in a certain area. By knowing where the local grocery store, gym, or bank is located in proximity to their new home, they’ll get a better sense of the community.

####Onboard Informatics : Onboard Community API

The Onboard Community API provides access to a rich set of local information including; population, education, ancestry, crime, commute times and weather. Websites utilizing this data gain a competitive edge by helping their users understand the nuances of the area.

@keithslater. Concur. However, I think Bridge is now enforcing API calls. So, you'd get 1000 calls to the Property Details API and then you'd be throttled for the day. 1000 calls to Zestimate etc.

I think their intention is to price tier above that. $ per month for 10,000 calls. $$ months for 50,000 calls.... etc.

I have a bridge account and have emailed them inquiring about it. I will let you know. @keithslater, just curious if you found any other sources for property details data other than web scrapes?

@bakedwafer and @keithslater , what was your use case that Bridge approved?

Copy link

bakedwafer commented Aug 12, 2021


I just received confirmation. The limit for Bridge is 1,000 calls/day per data set. Confirmed by Bridge. I don't actually see how it could be useful for anything in production if this is the case.

@ryanschaeffer - My use case is for a public, non-paying site, which will allow users to access the data. You cannot charge for it and the data cannot be used in any derivative calculations etc.

However, I probably won't use it, even though I am approved, because of the 1,000 / call limitation. That makes it essentially useless.

Thank you! This list really is a very useful real estate listings API. I agree that API help serves as the software mediator enabling two applications to contact each other.

Hello, any Esri GIS experts out there that can suggest a method to wire-up an MLS feed as a GIS feature service (REST)? I'd just like to be able to overlay the current MLS listings on the rest of my map data, for comparison. Is there any open data source for this kind of thing?
