To All MRED Brokerages,
MRED has partnered with Workforce Resource® on a service called Down Payment Resource (DPR) that helps connect eligible homebuyers and eligible properties with government funded down payment assistance programs. MRED has integrated DPR into our connectMLS system. Our brokerages and broker associates are also permitted to embed this tool into their IDX and VOW sites.
With this tool installed, your own sites can perform the same DPR functions as available in connectMLS, enhancing both the end user's experience and real estate professionals' marketing reach.
There is a simple four-step process to incorporate this feature into your products, detailed in this DPR IDX Setup Guide. Use this guide to install the DPR IDX tool.
MRED has incorporated the "Down Payment Resource" field in RETS. Please let your IDX/VOW Data Feed Vendor know that the System Name "DPR" is a Y/N lookup name that identifies properties that may qualify for some form of down payment assistance.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions you have regarding DPR. Thank you.
