Is there a Best Practices FAQ or guide to follow?

Yes! The Paragon RETS Best Practice Guide is available on our help site. Oddly enough, can't add it here directly.

Bruce, who answers many of the questions here, has put this together, and I think you'll find it to be a valuable resource.

From my experience I say the first thing is knowing how your going to handle your data. While this is my first actual attempt to do all this from scratch without having to use a IDX plugin or a service, the hardest thing I find is mapping the data. The MLS area I am working doesn't have good mapping fields. The RESO data dictionary is a good place to start to how your going to name your tables / fields for your database.

There is a limit to 2500 records. So knowing how to work the offset is a plus. Once you got all the data, need to figure a way to keep it updated, purge out old ones.

I am using the MEAN stack for what we are building.

But it all depends what you want to use to handle this data.
