MLS Data Licensing Options

RealMLS listing data is copyrighted and therefore requires a data licensing agreement between the vendor, the broker and the MLS. The applicable use determines which Data Licensing Agreement is required. There are four types of permitted use (IDX, VOW, Back Office and Broker’s Own Data*). Securing the appropriate licensing agreement assures your website and/or third-party application will always be up-to-date and accurate.

Please determine the appropriate use from the choices below and follow the instructions. If you have any questions you can contact us at  Also available below, for each use, are the applicable rules (if any).

(Note: Onboarding a new vendor may take up to 3 business days.  If there are questions or issues with your request realMLS staff will reach out for clarification within the same time frame.)

*Broker’s Own Data requires only a Request Form.  No data licensing agreement is needed
