XML stands for eXtensible Markup Language. Computer programmers use XML to easily share data between systems.

Buildium rental listings are available in a standard XML format that complies with MITS (www.mitsproject.com); a collaborative effort of the apartment industry to create data standards backed by over 70 firms, the National Multi Housing Council (NMHC) and the National Apartment Association (NAA).

You can use this XML and transform your Buildium rental listing data into a completely custom rental listing that blends perfectly with your website. Using XML requires more work than an iframe and may require you to hire a web developer.

To access your rental listings in XML:

  • For all listings:

    http://yoursubdomain.managebuilding.com/Resident/PublicPages/XMLRentals.ashx?listings=all

    This URL includes all listings, both active and inactive.

  • For active listings only:

    http://yoursubdomain.managebuilding.com/Resident/PublicPages/XMLRentals.ashx

    A listing is considered "active" if today's date falls between the start and end date for that unit. This setting is controlled in the listing.Listings page. See "Add a rental listing"

Instructions for web developers:

Buildium's XML complies with the MITS Property Marketing 3.0 schema. We recommend that you access the data once a day using a simple, two part process:

  1. Pull your listing data from Buildium via an HTTP GET request using your URL.

    • For all listings:

      http://yoursubdomain.managebuilding.com/Resident/PublicPages/XMLRentals.ashx?listings=all

      This URL includes all listings, both active and inactive.

    • For active listings only:

      http://yoursubdomain.managebuilding.com/Resident/PublicPages/XMLRentals.ashx

      A listing is considered "active" if today's date falls between the start and end date for that unit. This is a setting that is controlled by a Buildium user through their Listings page. See "Add a rental listing"

  2. Convert your listing data from XML to HTML using your preferred method.
