Real Estate Metadata Language (Remetal)
Real Estate Metadata Language (Remetal) is an extensible markup language (XML) describing real estate properties. Using XML technologies, properties are marked up in elements and attributes which adhere to specific rules according an XML Schema. The main benefit of Remetal is the passing of XML documents between Accredited OpenMLS® Registrars and the GR8C Registry. Another Remetal feature is the standardization of property elements and attributes for creating a globally accepted and universal vocabulary for real estate properties. One use case of Remetal is the sending of XML documents from a registrar to the GR8C Registry for posting a listing by a registrant or user. After the registry receives the Remetal document, inspection and archival take place before sending copies of the XML document to other Accredited OpenMLS® Registrars.
Remetal standard is currently in working draft status.
