The NTREIS MLS/RETS Systems are resources shared by real estate professionals and RETS users. The primary function of the NTREIS MLS System is to provide current information to real estate professionals in a timely manner and the function of RETS is to provide MLS data to MLS users and third parties.
NTREIS is very concerned about RETS downloads creating a system performance slow down not only for RETS, but possibly MLS resulting in a poor experience for both real estate agents and RETS users.
NTREIS would prefer not to impose limits on RETS users, either on the amount of data or when data can be accessed. If it is determined that a RETS user is consistently running either large downloads or has improper/inefficient RETS queries, NTREIS reserves the right to impose limits either on when the queries are allowed to run, or how much data can be downloaded within a certain time.
To ensure the experience is optimal for all users, NTREIS requests all RETS users refrain from running large downloads between 8 am and 6 pm on Monday through Friday. During these hours, please run incremental-type searches. Large or full downloads can be run after 6 pm and before 8 am.
NTREIS also requests that you do not run incremental searches on any one RETS Class more frequently than 15 minutes apart.
