How to integrate your property database with HousingAnywhere


Aug 08 • 1 minute read

Updating all of your listings over multiple platforms can be time-consuming, especially if you're a housing provider offering numerous accommodation options for tenants. It's also frustrating for potential tenants if listings aren't showing the correct information.

If you have a database of your listings, we can integrate it to your HousingAnywhere.com account. As soon as you update the property information in the database, it will automatically update on your HousingAnywhere listings, saving you a lot of time in the long run!

We support two different integration processes:

Feed: A feed is a link that connects your database to the HousingAnywhere database. All the changes you make in your database (price, availability, photos, description etc..) will be automatically updated, every day, on the HousingAnywhere database and publicly displayed on your published listings.
Currently we support these file types:

  • JSON
  • XML

ICS file: An ICS file is a calendar file used by several email and calendar apps, including Microsoft Outlook, Google Calendar, and Apple Calendar. Several housing providers are using ICS file to synchronize the availability of each of their properties advertised on multiple channels.

How to to integrate your database with HousingAnywhere:

  1. Create your listing on HousingAnywhere

  2. Send us your ICS files indicating the corresponding listing on the platform

  3. We’ll take care of the integration process!

Below you can find a example:
