WORDPRESS IDX INTEGRATION

Give buyers and sellers a way to view MLS listings on your website

IDX is the tool that connects your WordPress website with the listings on your MLS so that buyers can search through them on your website itself. This feature is arguably the most important function of your website because you are in the business of selling real estate and so it follows that listings are the most important bit of information visitors to your website are looking to find.

An IDX gives your website the ability to display not only your listings but all listings from all agents/brokers in your MLS on your website (some agents opt their listings out of the IDX but this is very rare).

WordPress IDX Features

WordPress IDX Features Most Popular With Agents

While there are dozens of reasons that make a specific WordPress IDX great (each IDX company breaks them down in full detail so be sure to check out their websites), the most immediate features you will find useful are as follows:

  • Basic home search form widgets to place throughout your site.
  • Connection to your MLS listings. When you enter a new listing in the MLS then your website page displaying your listings will automatically update as well (this functionality actually applies to your listings, your office listings, or any other listing pages you create on your website matching any criteria you prefer).
  • The ability to create custom IDX pages that populate with listings based on a neighborhood, city, zip code, school district, mapped based region from a custom drawn zone, a specific property appearance or price criteria.
  • The ability to add listings into blog posts with just a few clicks.
  • Map based search forms.
  • Indexable Search Engine Optimized Listing Pages (this means that each listing that appears on your website is viewed as real living content that Google considers a part of your website). This helps your website get more traffic from the search engines.
  • Lead capture options that let buyers create accounts where they can save searches/listings for later viewing and sign up for new listing email updates of new listings.
  • Mobile IDX tool that makes your website operate like an mobile app when people visit it from a smart phone or tablet.
