Data Services

MLS PIN’s data adds value to every real estate site, because it’s accurate, timely and comprehensive. Choose the right solution for your project, from an IDX feed to a comprehensive VOW feed to power your public website and back office services.

IDX (Free Options)

MLS PIN offers its Participants and Subscribers the ability to “frame in” IDX data by pointing their websites to the Pinergy IDX Search Page. There is also an option to download Pinergy IDX data to display on their websites. Instructions are available below for each free option:

If you need assistance with either IDX option, contact MLS PIN’s Customer Care Department.
