Why am I getting non active listings?

  • retag add tags

For years I was only able to retrieve active listings. Now I am getting everything. Has something changed? The account I am using is "**"

I found a similar issue posted on Aug 7 but it was not answered.

The previous one wasn't answered because I didn't have the account name you provided above.
We also ask for the RETS Login URL you are using.
Without that it can be difficult to determine exactly which MLS you are connecting to.

It looks like your account uses the standard IDX profile which includes Active and Sold.
The MLS controls what data is included the feeds.
I would suggest if you only want Actives, add a filter to your property query: (L_StatusCatID=1)
Or you could contact the MLS and request a feed with only actives.

L_StatusCatID works great, thanks!
