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.

Follow the instructions below to create an export template in MRED, export and save your data as a Tab Separated Value (TSV) 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.
The MRED MLS provides different field lists based on the the property type selected. If you export data to complete the 1004MC condominium, save separate export templates for each property type.
It doesn't matter in which order these fields are added. Once the required fields have been added, you can also include any additional fields that might be useful for identifying outliers.
Additionally, the field names listed below won't always be an exact match to the field names listed by your MLS. Titan Analytics knows the different ways an MLS will say Closing Price or Listing Date, for example, and can decipher the data.
Once you've saved your export template, use it to export the property data from your MLS search for use in Titan Analytics.
