What is an API?

Wondering what an API is and how it could help your business?  ‘API’ stands for application programming interface. A real estate API provides users with direct access to a range of real-time property data via their own website, application, portal, or custom software. You can use a real estate API to automatically update your website, app, and other systems with real-time real estate data.

With an API solution, real estate professionals can easily keep track of new properties arriving on the market and power their sites and applications with up-to-date data on the local housing market and neighborhoods. You can also get direct access to real estate data on property ownership, features, taxes, sales, foreclosures, mortgages, valuations and more.

What are Real Estate APIs Used for?

There are many uses for a real estate API. You can use a real estate API to power your analytics models with accurate, real-time real estate data to help simplify and enhance your analysis of the property market. You can reduce your workload with automatic updates to your platform.

You can also use an API solution to power your real estate platform. You can showcase a range of property details to prospective buyers and investors — from number of bedrooms to lot size and property characteristics. In addition, you can use an API to help share neighborhood information that’s of interest to buyers and investors. Such data may include the schools a property is zoned to and local points of interest.

Many companies also use real estate APIs to pre-populate forms with property information, reducing the burden on customers — helping to improve user conversion, satisfaction, and retention rates.
