About Real Estate APIs

Real estate is a billion-dollar industry that moves quickly. Buyers and sellers are out to get the best deal for a property. Brokers are looking to make connections, finalize contracts, and share accurate information with their clients. A property-centered API is a virtual container with information about properties, prices, and real estate professionals.

What is a real estate API?

An API devoted to real estate can focus on several aspects of the industry. The Mashvisor API focuses on rental properties and gives up-to-date information about short-term and long-term rental costs. Other APIs like the Zillow API gives information about properties for sale.

How do real estate APIs work?

Every piece of property produces a myriad of data points. A property API stores a collection of information such as the address, neighborhood description, and assessed value. When an app or website makes a GET request, the API returns the appropriate information. Every time a realtor searches for a type of property, the application is connecting to a real estate database.

Who uses a real estate API?

Whether they know it or not, thousands of people interact with this type of API every day. Real estate brokers use programs that connect with real estate MLS APIs to work cooperatively. APIs that work with the rental market help people find the best deals for their vacation rentals. A connection to an API will enhance any application that shares property information.

What can a developer expect from a real estate API?

With one of the best real estate APIs, a developer can access all sorts of current data on properties around the world. Many of these databases allow search requests so that a user can look up properties by size, location, or price range. Some APIs include links to pictures of properties. A real estate MLS API will also have detailed broker information that will allow a user to make contact.

Are there examples of free property APIs?

Real estate groups support some of the best real estate APIs, so they allow developers to access their information at no cost. For a large property company like Zillow, giving access to their API increases traffic and sales. Real estate MLS APIs that cater to brokers often have a monthly access fee.
