In April 2006, California Real Estate Technology Services (CARETS) began the development of an enhanced way of sharing data that would better serve the real time needs of Southern California brokers and agents.Once the infrastructure, standardization and connectivity protocols were clearly defined and agreed upon by all participating MLSs, a Request for Proposal (RFP) went out for a bid to 18 organizations that have experience providing such database solutions. In September 2007 a vendor was selected out of a group of five finalists.
CARETS went live in October 2008 for the founding members - SoCalMLS, CLAW, CRISNet MLS, CRMLS and i-Tech MLS. Since then two additional MLS - DAMLS and VCRDS have joined CARETS and went live in late 2010. CARETS now serves approximately 110,000 users who have access to over 100,000 active listings.
