Product FAQ

What MLS platforms do you integrate with?

Domus is system agnostic, so we can integrate data from any MLS platform.  We are built to be RESO Data Dictionary compliant, but we can also work with non-compliant data feeds.

What browsers are supported?

Domus dashboards work on all modern browsers, such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari, and Opera.  If you are using Internet Explorer, you'll need to install IE 11 for all the features to work appropriately. We strongly recommend using Chrome for the best experience possible.

What day of the month is data updated?

Domus dashboards report through the end of the prior month, and the results are available on the 1st day of the next month. We update data for at least several days to a week after that, and in most cases the data "settles down". We’ll work with you to understand your needs, and customize your update schedule accordingly.

What if I want "non-standard" filters included in the dashboards?

If there's a field included in your MLS data that you would like to include as a filter, we'll review it and advise you on the statistical stability of including it. Keep in mind that Domus is meant to be used for economic analysis, not as a property search tool. Things like number of bathrooms don't really have have a material impact on the economics of a certain segment. More important from a data analysis perspective, as more granularity is added to the filters, the number of listings that fit that criteria shrinks, making the economic analysis less relevant overall. For example, if there are 100 units sold in an area with a median price of $200K, and you add a filter for 4+ bedrooms, there may only be 5 listings meeting that criteria. A median of 5 listings is far less relevant than a median over a larger population.

Does Domus offer maps with custom selection criteria (“polygon maps”)?

Yes, those maps look cool. But the Domus platform doesn’t currently support them. In most cases, the MLS already defines unique economic areas within the data which we use in our dashboards. But we do have "mapping" on our product roadmap as we try to figure out how best to bring value to our clients through maps.

Can I post charts to Facebook or other social media sites?

Of course, as long as your usage remains within compliance of your MLS policies. All of our dashboards can be exported then posted to your social media of choice, while the public dashboards which don't have drill-through capabilities enabled can be shared directly.
