Once you have a portal provider in place and you’ve uploaded your listings and photographs into it you’re ready to configure the FeedSync for your website.
Step 1: Decide where the final hosting server will be
Its much easier to to this once on the final server then to change things later. You have enough to do when launching a new website that you don’t want to add another step in the way and have to wait for your provider to adjust their settings on your tight schedule.
For example: You are developing a new WordPress web site on your local development server which will eventually replace an existing one but the client plans on keeping their current hosting.
Perform the following steps on the intended live server.

In this tutorial we are going to walk through the steps of importing REAXML files into your WordPress real estate website.
Basically we are going to create two import jobs for each REAXML property element, one for current and one for sold/leased. FeedSync merges the REAXML files and creates three output files: current, sold/leased, withdrawn/offmarket. We only need to import the current and sold/leased as because this is more efficient by reducing import file sizes, leaves the withdrawn/offmarket out of the database.
To do this you are going to need a few tools.

My requirements when developing this REAXML parser script was to make sure it was fast, efficient and not repeat imports if NO changes are detected and be able to use WP-Property to import the files and manage the property and rental listings.
So after countless hours searching for a REA XML parser to no avail I set out to find a developer to build my REA XML parser.
The script had to do the following:
- Combine the individual REAXML files into a single, or multiple import files.
- Process the results and store them in 3 new separate REAXML files: Current, SOLD/LEASED, and withdrawn to increase speed.
- When the property status changes to sold/leased/withdrawn delete the property entry from the current REAXML output file.
- Just added: Geocode the property address during import and add another field so my new property plugin did not have to also geocode the entry on import.
