The Data Feeds tab of the MLS and Association dashboard offers you the ability to review and report on the data feeds that are conducted within RPR and when they were last updated.
This data types are the broad categories of data that comprise RPR: AVMs/RVMs®, Public Records, Listings, Listing Photos and “Other” Data. If you click on “Details” you can view upload and status information across data types.
The last option, "Counties Covered," is presented as a list (or as a map) and shows the counties that are represented with property listings within our datasets for the MLS or association territory. For an MLS, the counties covered are the primary counties that RPR has associated with your MLS. Counties "outside your main coverage area" are counties where a member of your MLS has listings. An example would be a member of an MLS in Illinois who also has listings in Florida. For an Association, the counties covered are the primary counties that RPR has associated with all the MLSs affiliated with your Association. Counties "outside your main coverage area" are places where members of an MLS with which your Association is affiliated has listings.
Our example is a view of the Public Records. Once here, you can view the data for ALL counties or can choose an individual county from the drop down. Another option is to choose which time frame you want to view under “For.” Below this, you will see the following:
- Load data
- Number of properties updated
- Deed/Mortgage date range
- Distressed included
- Assessment year
- Status of the load (complete or not)
If the data loaded successfully and is current, there will be a white check mark within a blue circle. If there was an issue with the data load, there will be a yellow caution icon. These can be found at the top of the page in the quick view of the data feed summary. Within this information is also the “frequency” of the data, which tells you how often we typically receive the feeds. This is helpful in knowing whether the data we display is in line with what would be expected for the data set, and in estimating when we will receive the next load.
When you select “Details” for a particular data type, you will also get a brief description of what you are seeing, to the left of the page.
Note that some information displayed on the Data Feeds may only be updated once per day. Information for the day in progress may not be complete until the following day.
