In order to protect the MLS listing compilation and to maintain the performance of the MLS system, the MFR Board of Directors have elected to reduce the amount of data being exported from MLXchange at one time.
Effective February 28, 2012, the maximum amount of data that can be exported from MLXchange at one time, will be limited to 500 listings.
After conducting initial research, we concluded most Members downloading data fall into two main categories:
- Brokers or agents using the data for statistics and/or marketing efforts
- Appraisers using the data to help complete appraisals
It is important to note, consistently exporting large amounts of data from MLXchange negatively affects the systems performance.
MFR has created alternative methods for obtaining data that will not affect the system. If you routinely or are currently exporting data from MLXchange, in excess of this 500-listing limit, we invite you to consider these alternative methods for obtaining the data.
Data Usage for Statistical Purposes: As an MFR Member, you have access to several different statistical programs. We encourage you to click here to explore a more suitable statistical option or contact email@example.com for consideration of a Custom RETS Data Feed.
