Notice Description

  A National Shared Development Platform and App Marketplace

This Request for Information (RFI) is issued by The Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) to qualified service providers who may be interest in creating a National Shared Development Platform where certified, independent software vendors (ISVs) and data providers could develop, extract and combine data to generate new tools and services for REALTORS® and their clients.

This RFI is designed to provide a high level understanding of CREA’s current arrangements as well as CREA’s objective to open and’s data for potential third party application development. The RFI also presents service providers with the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to provide such services.

The opportunity

3rd party developers, increasingly, are the key to a dynamic, vibrant technology ecosystem. If properly harnessed, 3rd parties will be able to provide new and innovative tools via an online app marketplace to:

- Equip REALTORS® to meet the changing needs of consumers while bringing more value to the buying and selling process;
- Enable REALTORS® to connect more easily with consumers;
- Improve real estate listings to better serve the real estate marketplace;
- Enhance and to be more modern, customizable, useful and fun.
