Real Estate Transaction Standard (RETS)

The Real Estate Transaction Standard (RETS) facilitates data transfer between partners in the real estate industry. Creating and improving RETS is a collaborative effort to simplify moving real estate information from system to system and simplify solution development efforts. As RETS usage matures and expands, MLS with geographic overlaps can create data-sharing policies that provide their members a single point of entry to search multiple MLS data sets.

NuGet Package ID LiquidTechnologies.XmlObjects.RETS2007-08
Description An object model for the RETS 2007-08 standard providing strongly typed classes that can be serialized/deserializsed to XML.

Supported Platforms
  • .Net Standard 2.0 and above
  • .Net Core 2.0 and above
  • .Net Framework 4.0 and above
  • Create a new Visual Studio Project
  • Add a reference to the nuget package @myModel.NugetID
  • Create an LxSerializer<> for your root element
    • If the root element in your XML document is 'MyRoot' then the object generated to represent it should be called 'MyRootElm'*1
    • Hint - In Visual Studio placing the caret within the code LxSerializer<MyRootElm> and pressing Alt-Shift-F10 will give you the option to add the appropriate using statement.
  • Use the LxSerializer to read in the XML Document using the Deserialize method
  • Setting a break point after this line will allow you to explore the structure of the object in the visual studio watch windows.
  • Use the LxSerializer to write in the XML Document back out using the Serialize method
*1 - If the element contains non-alphanumeric characters, then the name may be slightly different.
LxSerializer<ExamplePersonElm> serializer = LxSerializer<ExamplePersonElm>();

// Reading an XML file
ExamplePersonElm person = serializer.Deserialize("MyPersonData.xml");
foreach(ExampleFriendElm friend in person.Friends)
{
    Console.Write("Name = " + friend.Name);
}

// Edit the objects
ExampleFriendElm newFriend = new ExampleFriendElm();
newFriend.Name = "Joe Blogs";
person.Friends.Add(newFriend);

// Write the new data out as XML
serializer.Serialize("MyNewPersonData.xml", person);
