Posting raw listing data from Matrix into an existing site
Some State-Wide MLS Members already have taken advantage of Internet marketing by having robust web sites created by professional web developers in order to capture hopefully the growing population of web-based consumers. Since framed solutions do not always fit well within an existing site’s conceptual design, Members are allowed to incorporate certain ‘raw’ listing data into their site’s design scheme. Although re-typing this data is an option, an easier method is to export the data from Matrix using that system’s inherent custom report and spreadsheet utilities into their site.
Benefit – high customization solution.
Negative – advanced technical knowledge needed, resource intensive – possible high costs related to the integration of the data by a web developer.
