IDX | Internet Data Exchange
The REALTOR IDX
Internet Data Exchange ("IDX"), also referred to as "Broker Reciprocity," is the next stage in the evolution of MLS as the primary means of enhancing cooperation between REALTORS to facilitate the purchase and sale of real property. IDX gives MLS Participants the tool they need to display each others listings on their Internet websites. Under IDX brokers exchange consent to display each others listings on the Internet.
IDX gives brokers and real estate agents the ability to display MLS listings on to their company and individual real estate websites. The upshot for home sellers is that when a property is listed in the MLS with one broker, it now becomes available to customers through every cooperating Realtor website including Realtor.com and websites that display property search results from Realtor.com like Yahoo.com, MSN.com and others. In fact your local, in town independent brokerage firms as well as all franchise firms websites will normally all display the same listings from the IDX program.
So, if you list on the MLS, your property is guaranteed by the National Association of REALTORs (NAR) broker IDX policy to appear on all of the real estate websites that display property listing information. Millions of home buying customers around the world now have access to your property's information through this listing database.
Websites that download from the MLS are in a constant state of change, beyond our control, however, most are constant. These sites down load from different MLS's, at different times, and in different areas, some are slow to down load, while others are fast. We also have very limited control over the content within these sites. However, most real estate companies do not offer these new sites. We cannot guarantee that your listing will show up on or any of these sites, but your listing should be on most, if not all, plus many more we do not mention.
