Visit our new consumer-facing website, NewMexicoHomeSearch.com to search MLS listings.
VOW = Virtual Office Website – This is a website, or feature of a website in which a Participant (as defined in the SWMLS Bylaws) provides real estate brokerages services to a consumer. An established broker-consumer relationship must exist with the Participant and the client using the VOW service. After this relationship is established (as defined by state law) the consumer will have the opportunity to search MLS listing information that is subject to the Participant’s oversight, supervision, and accountability.
An IDX website is a website that is setup to display SWMLS information to any member of the public who visits that website. To use a Virtual Office Website, an individual must first agree to a client-broker relationship.
Effective December 1st, 2021, SWMLS no longer offers RETS as an option for new data feeds. Existing vendors with RETS feeds are encouraged to convert to API as soon as possible, as RETS will be sunset at a date in the near future.
Obtaining a Feed: SWMLS API data feeds are handled through Trestle. The Data Vendor that is requesting the data will need to go directly to trestle.corelogic.com to create or enable their API for SWMLS Data.
SWMLS Members: Advise your Vendor to complete this process. You shouldn't need to do anything except sign the contract when it gets to you.
Data Vendors: For help with setting up a contract/feed, plus contact Trestle support at 844-530-8855 or TrestleSupport@CoreLogic.com
VOW rules are found in Section 19 of the SWMLS Rules and Regulations. These rules were adopted from the National Association of REALTORS® rules. You are strongly encouraged to read this section thoroughly before establishing your VOW. You should become familiar with the specific rules that pertain to operating a broker-client relationship through a website. Also, the AVP must adhere to defined rules to ensure that you remain in compliance.
For your consideration:
API Option: The API is the feed used most frequently with web developers using SWMLS data. This data feed allows web developers to query or pull from the database the specific property data applicable for the website.
*Costs are subject to change and will be reviewed frequently by the SWMLS Board of Directors.*
