DPR IDX Setup Instructions
Down Payment Resource (DPR) can easily be enabled on IDX and VOW websites, allowing consumers to see which properties are eligible for homebuyer programs and providing IDX site owners a new way to educate and connect with potential buyers!

For website owners that wish to override this default (or that do not provide a value for the Referrer header), the following parameter may be appended to the URL:
