I wrote a post, over at the Geek Estate Blog (one of the best real estate tech blogs, imho) about APIs and why if you are a realtor or a broker, you should look for software with an API
Well, first, let’s talk about what an API is. API stands for “Applications Programming Interface”–not very illuminating. What that means is that the software providing the API has a way to allow other software (applications) to interact (interface) with it, with no human involvement. That is, the two software systems can ‘talk’ to each other.
