Internet Data eXchange also known as IDX, allows real estate agents to showcase the listings in their local MLS on their website, allows home seekers to search properties on their site, and submit inquiries to view properties.
Every home buyer using the internet to search for homes wants one thing: to look at pictures of houses available in their area. That’s it. In all honesty, they don’t really want to talk to ANY agent until they are ready to look at homes. If you push to hard in this critical stage, you’ve most likely lost them.
Let your site visitors search, provide them with useful information, encourage them to get to know you through social media. Build up the “know, like, trust” factor, and don’t jump too quickly.
Here are a list of the top 10 IDX providers:
- IDX Broker | We prefer IDX Broker Platinum
