Hi.

I just did a quick google search by "real estate web software" and quite a few options came up. Perhaps this will help.

It would be best to build the site with a server side language such as php or asp.

Had a quick look at the MLS site. I would suggest that you get in touch with them and see how to be included in their list of realtors.

Perhaps they could also steer you in the right direction on the best site building tools (they use asp).

I believe you can get the local MLS listings directly from your broker along with pictures that you can import into any database system like SQL, MySQL, etc. I don't think there is any way to connect directly to your local MLS service.

Well, yes if you do a quick google search you will see these companies offering their software but I would like to develop my own software.I think you guys are right that my MLS probably offers to send new listings to its members and I can import those into the database and go on from there.I think I will ask them.Anyways still if someone knows anything else let me know.Thanks
