I see search requests in our RETS logs for that account that show it is returning data.
The only exception is your RE_1 query: (L_Status=|1_0,1_1,1_2,1_3,1_4,3_0),(L_SaleRent=|R)
That query is not returning data because you are searching for (L_SaleRent=|R) and there are only 18 with that value and those are all (L_Status=2_0) which you aren't including in your query.
Changing it to: (L_SaleRent=|S) returns 1028 records.

OK - that makes sense - if my dba updates their query, we should be seeing 1028 rental listings (just confirming).

You would be seeing 1028 Residential sale listings not rental.

bwolven's avatar bwolven (2020-01-22 09:59:03 -0500) edit

what adjustment to the query would return residential rental listings?

sthicks14's avatar sthicks14 (2020-01-22 10:00:24 -0500) edit

the reason I ask, is we are receiving a few MLS feeds from Paragon that may be experiencing the same issue

sthicks14's avatar sthicks14 (2020-01-22 10:01:02 -0500) edit

Are you wanting to pull ONLY rentals?
If so, that query would be correct but there might not be any.
Your other class queries didn't include the L_SaleRent filter.

bwolven's avatar bwolven (2020-01-22 10:07:49 -0500) edit

Yes, right now we're only looking for residential rental listings

sthicks14's avatar sthicks14 (2020-01-22 10:11:39 -0500) edit

Ok. If that is the case your query would be correct.
There just aren't any active rentals in that class.
In fact I only see active ones in class: CI_3

bwolven's avatar bwolven (2020-01-22 10:22:28 -0500) edit

should I have the dba update the class to CL_3 in this case?

sthicks14's avatar sthicks14 (2020-01-22 10:34:34 -0500) edit

That would be CI_3, Commerical/Industrial so those may just be commercial rentals.
I would imagine you would want: RE_1, MF_5, and FA_5 if you just want residential rentals.
I wouldn't think LD_2, Land would apply.
You may want to check with the MLS to verify.

OK - thanks for working with me on this!
