IDX stands for Internet Data Exchange. It is best summed up as the ability to display MLS listings in a searchable database on your website. IDX is synonymous with the concept of broker reciprocity. Broker reciprocity is the concept by which brokers mutually agree to allow display of their listings on each other’s websites. Of course none of this can happen without the well thought-out guidelines and regulations that your TAR and NAR board of directors have put together.
Wondering what you need to do to put IDX on your website? Here is a quick summary of the steps you need to take in order to get IDX up and running on your website as soon as possible.
1. Fill out and sign the IDX Participation Agreement (below). This is an agreement between YOU and TAR, acknowledging that you understand your responsibilities of how the IDX data must be displayed, what disclaimers and logos to use, etc. Every TAR member must fill out and sign this Agreement before they can have access to the database to put IDX on their website.. This is a comprehensive document, and should answer most of your questions in terms of the Telluride IDX guidelines.
2. If you currently do not have a website but are interested in IDX and a website, you have several options. Feel free to call Mier Esch at 970.728.5172 and she can fill you in on possibilities.
3. Please realize that IDX may not materialize on your website for a few more weeks. The steps above will get the ball rolling, but it will take a little while before IDX is officially up and running on your website. By contacting your vendor and by returning the completed IDX Participation Agreement/IDX Vendor Agreement to the TAR office, you will have taken tremendous strides in the IDX implementation on your site.
TAR’s IDX program has been successfully running for several years, and it has been an immense benefit to our members. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the MLS Coordinator, Mier Esch at 970.728.5172.
