Consumers in the Carolinas can access timely, accurate and trustworthy property information listed by multiple Realtors® from a single agent website thanks to Internet Data Exchange (IDX).
CarolinaMLS offers Participants and Subscribers the ability to display MLS active listing information on the Internet through the Internet Data Exchange (IDX) program. Through IDX, Participants permit other Participants and Subscribers to advertise their active listings on one another's websites. Participants may include their listings in the IDX database without having their own websites. If a Participant chooses not to participate, his or her firm's listings cannot be displayed on any other member's website.
Brokers who participate in IDX can offer consumers the most comprehensive selection of active real estate listing information, and their listings are exposed on the websites of other brokers. Broker websites can effectively compete with national aggregators as comprehensive sources of online listing information.
IDX only applies to websites that display listings obtained via IDX data feed. IDX does not apply to print advertising or to listings posted online on Craigslist or on social media sites such as Facebook or Twitter. For information on non-IDX display of listings, read "Get permission first. Just because a listing is in the MLS doesn't mean you can post it online."
