IDX stands for Internet Data Exchange but is also sometimes referred to as Broker Reciprocity. IDX enables real estate professionals to display property listings from their Multiple Listing Service (MLS) online. IDX access eligibility is dependent on local MLS rules. Some MLS boards allow both brokers and agents to have IDX solutions while others allow access only to brokers.
Why Should I Add IDX to my Website?
Listings are the number one thing that homebuyers are looking for on the Internet. If you’re not providing your website visitors with access to search MLS listings, you’re not giving buyers what they want. IDX search is easy for homebuyers to use and provides features that encourage homebuyers to register and keep coming back to your site, meaning more business for you!
