    This is not possible with via the IDX Broker API. This is an MLS compliance issue and not a technological limitation. The issue is if we were to provide this via API there is no way to guarantee this data would go no further. IDX Broker takes the security of MLS data very seriously and thus is unable to offer raw data.

    The only way to get raw data is directly from the MLS.

    I hope there is something we can do here to work this out. This really would be a game changer. I mean a real game changer.

    With this functionality, we could build better dynamic community pages, pull in listings onto the site using the API and not js, etc.

    Can’t we figure out a way to check the referring domain calling for the data? Or, to get access to the raw MLS data, you have to have a verified domain with a license that gets passed in the API call, signed an additional agreement, etc.

    I just feel like this is the one piece of the puzzle that is missing for IDX Broker.
