RLS Internet Data Exchange (IDX) Update

We are pleased to advise you that following a series of recommendations by the RLS Board of Directors, REBNY’s Residential Board of Directors has unanimously adopted an Internet Data Exchange (commonly known as IDX) policy for participating member firms.

IDX – already widely used throughout the United States – is a program of broker reciprocity that allows selected information on exclusive RLS listings to be displayed publicly on the websites of other RLS brokerages. 

Unlike the Virtual Office Website (or VOW) used by many firms, which requires registration before a search can be initiated, IDX does not require users to register on the website.

Download a detail sheet with frequently asked questions for your use and reference.

In order to implement IDX for your company or individual agents, you must contract with an  IDX vendor that has executed an agreement with the RLS.  As of the date of this notice, the following firms have signed agreements with RLS to provide IDX solutions for RLS firms:

Please reach out to any of these companies, to find out how you can adapt IDX for your website. Please note that in order to have IDX added to your site you must sign an RLS IDX authorization form that must be sent to and reviewed by REBNY.   IDX Vendors will be able to provide the RLS IDX authorization form with their sign-up package.
