SimplyRETS is a platform for developers and agents to build real estate applications and websites with the listing and market data from their local MLS. It syncs a large number of real estate feeds on behalf of agents, brokers, and other technology companies building real estate technology across the United States and Canada.
They integrate geocoding in regions where accurate geocode data for addresses is unavailable.
SimplyRETS uses Geocodio because of its user experience, affordability, and ease of use. Before Geocodio, they tried several do-it-yourself options including bootstrapping entire TIGER data sets into PostGIS, Nominatim, and even several other commercial options, all of which were either too expensive or did not have a good developer experience which cost their team significant time.
"The Geocodio API has been extremely stable and accurate. We've had virtually zero downtime in years and it has maintained backwards compatibility the whole time. For the price point, it's an incredible deal and saves our developers a ton of time," says Co-Founder Christopher Reichert.
Geocodio powers thousands of real estate-related applications around the US and Canada, from mobile apps for home buyers to databases for home insurance companies.
