Internet Data Exchange
IDX is the acronym for Internet Data Exchange.
A system used by real estate agents and brokers to display property listings on their websites. IDX allows agents and brokers to showcase multiple properties for sale, providing potential buyers with a comprehensive list of available homes.
IDX is a system that is provided by a Multiple Listing Service (MLS). The MLS is a database of properties for sale that is used by real estate agents and brokers to share information about available properties with each other. IDX allows agents and brokers to display properties that are listed in the MLS on their own websites, giving them a wider audience and making it easier for potential buyers to find homes for sale.
IDX typically includes information such as the address, price, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, square footage, and photos of the property. This information is updated in real-time, so buyers can be sure they are seeing the most up-to-date information about a property.
It’s worth noting that not all MLS’s offer IDX data feeds, and some may charge additional fees for access to this data. Additionally, certain restrictions may apply to how the data can be displayed on an agent or broker’s website, such as the requirement to display listing agent or brokerage information alongside the listing.
