Many fields in NTREIS MLS are driven by list boxes. The “Kitchen Equipment” referenced in the above table is one example. Others include Status, Area, etc., and also include simple ‘Null/Yes/No’ fields, such as ‘Furnished’ in the LSE class.
12.a) View Look Ups
A full list of all the RETS Look Ups is available on the RETS Server at:
You will need to first log-in to http://ntreisrets.mls.ntreis.net/rets/login with your RETS credentials and then paste the links above into your browser to access the lookups.
12.b) Compact and Compact De-coded
RETS allows you to download the data as either Compact or Compact De-Coded. The first option downloads the codes used for the data, i.e. ‘CONBRICK’, and the second option would be in user-friendly terms, i.e. ‘Brick Construction’.
Downloading in the Compact form allows for smaller and faster downloads. Then you have to de-code the data yourself.
Downloading in Compact De-Coded requires downloading more data. The size of the file is larger and takes more time to download, but you do not have to use the Lookups to change the data into user-friendly names.
