PROPERTY SEARCH ENGINE "When you search the Real Estate Database (RED) you will get results from multiple real estate websites that are linked to the database. We are currently in the process of linking all real estate websites in Uganda to the RED.



Real Estate agents and brokers want to publish (syndicate) their properties on several websites in order to increase the opportunities of those properties being seen by a bigger number of property hunters who are using the internet to find what they are looking for, they also want to save the time required to upload the same properties on several websites, this can be achieved by creating partnerships between websites/portals or databases.

If you have a property listing website and you would like to display all the latest properties directly from the Real Estate Database (RED) to your website then we are providing you with two formats through which you can connect to the database and querry the properties you need or you can import the properties into your database everyday; 1) using a live XML feed, 2) using an up-to-date CSV / Excel file, all these two formats contain the same properties, so its up to you to choose the easier option for you.
  1. XML Feed:
    (The XML feed format is normalized and more detailed, thus it can be queried directly by your system)

  2. CSV / Excel file:
    (The CSV format is not normalized since each listing is in one raw, and thus it has a limited number of 2 images)
However, if you are a real estate agent or broker and would like to publish all your properties directly from your website into the Real Estate Database (RED) (and to any other property listing website), then the best way to do so is by contacting us to link your website directly to the RED or converting your listings into an XML data feed and then sending us the live feed of all the active properties in your database.

Your website designer (technical team) can create this feed and then submit it through your company's account in the RED, ie you need to create a RED account first in order to submit your XML feed and thus all the properties in the feed will be associated with your account.

There are several websites that are already linked to the RED directly or through XML feeds including the following: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , and many others.

We will connect directly to your feed and process your properties from the URL that you provide (we require a static URL that never changes), and once you provide a feed then it will not be necessary to upload any properties from within the same account, else that would create duplicates, all you have to do is upload properties on your website and they will appear in the RED listing and also on other property listing websites like: Kupatana, Supa Price, Lamudi, Property Maps, Find A House and Mobo Free.

How do I sign up to create/submit my feed to the RED?

Go to, then fill out and submit the form on the member registration page so as to create an account, then enter your feed's URL after you have accessed your new account.

If you are not sure how to create/get/submit your XML feed then send us an email at: e-mail or call 0705162000 (Julius) and ask for assistance or for more information on how we can help you to easily create a live feed for your website like we have done for all the others.

What communication protocols do you support?

We support the HTTP protocol only. If your feed is password protected, please contact us and we’ll set things up to maintain that security were possible.

What kind of feed formats do you support?
We support the "RED Interchange Format": This is our own feed format that will allow you to display appropriate listings on the RED website. You will see the RED Interchange Format specifications in one of the tables below. Please note: that we do not allow feeds that have  images with Logos in them, use only clean original images.

Who do I contact in case something isn’t working correctly?
Please contact our Customer Support via e-mail at or you can contact 0705162000 (Julius).

What's the required update Frequency

The frequency with which we update/process your feed depends on various factors, eg if the feed for your websites was created by our team then processing will be done as soon as new properties are updated on your websites.

However if the feed was submitted to us through an external provider then such a feed will be updated/checked on daily basis (once and day). Please contact us to find out how often your feed will be updated.

Field Specifications/Details (technical)

Because some characters will not display as intended after the XML is parsed, its required that you enclose all tag values in a CDATA section as shown in the example on this page. Anything enclosed within these tags will not be parsed and will be displayed literally.

By using the RED Interchange Format, you can include as much detail about a home as you'd like, especially within the description tag, the more information you can supply, the more attractive the home will be to a potential buyer.

We only accept the UTF-8 encoding for all XML feeds and the feed must contain every single property that you want to be live on the RED. All the properties that are in the feed will be posted into the RED unless an error occurs during the processing of your feed. Any properties that are no longer in the feed will be removed from the RED.

The following are the required fields for your feed:

<HOUSE_CODE>   This should contain a unique code/ID of the property as it appears from within your system/database, the RED system will generate new IDs for each property, however, the original ID will be used as a reference pointing back to the same property on your own website.
<LOCATION>   The name of the parish or village where the property is located. feel free to use the most common names of area as you know them, we may however change the spelling of a location if we think that it does not sync with what everyone else has submitted for the same location.

You also need to cross check with the popular locations on the RED home page if you are not sure how a specific location is spelled. many locations have double letters eg Bwebajja yet some agents make a mistake of using single letters.
