MLS vendors integrate with MLS boards across the country to provide the interfaces you use to search for properties in your area. While you may be familiar with MLS boards like Sandicor or Arizona Regional MLS (ARMLS), what you interact with on the screen is provided by the MLS vendor. Major vendors include RapattoniMLS, Paragon®, Matrix™, Flexmls®, and Navica.
Determining the MLS vendor is simple. Typically, these names are located on the home page or login screen of your local MLS board website, either near your MLS logo or at the bottom of the page. If you have trouble locating your vendor, contact your MLS board for help determining which MLS vendor they use.
The following instructions are for Matrix, or Matrix powered by Bright™. If this isn't the vendor your MLS board uses, click here for a complete list of vendors.
We provide these instructions as a courtesy to our customers, and are not in any way affiliated with the MLS boards or MLS vendors outlined in our instructions. Steps contained in these documents are accurate to the best of our knowledge.
Follow the instructions below to create an export template in Matrix™, export and save your data as a Comma Separated Value (CSV) file, and then import the property data to Titan Analytics.
You only need to create an export template once. After you save it, you can reuse the template each time you export data from your MLS. If you already have a template for Titan Analytics, jump to Part II.
If your version of Matrix uses Bright, this step is different. Click your name on the orange button in the top right and select Account & Settings. Next, click MLS Settings by the gear icon. Then proceed with Step 3 below.
The field names below may be slightly different depending on your board. Titan Analytics knows how to handle these differences.
Tip: Use the search feature to quickly find any field with Date in it!
If your board won't export the Listing Date for active properties, try using the MLS Entry Date instead. Then, after you load your file into Titan Analytics, match it to the Listing Date. See Doc 3004 for details.
Once you've saved your export template, use it to export the property data from your MLS search for use in Titan Analytics.
