What is the DDF®?
CREA created the Data Distribution Facility (DDF®) to enable Canadian REALTORS® to share and distribute listings on your website with the assurance that all listing data is up-to-date with the latest descriptions, photos, virtual tours and other multimedia.
REALTORS® can create data feeds based on their personal business. Choose from a variety of types and areas and market directly to their niche market.
As a REALTOR® listings are one of your most valuable assets. The more listings you display on your website the more opportunities your have to raise your profile, increase your web traffic and build your brand. The Data Distribution Facility from The Canadian Real Estate Association makes all of that possible.
