The Future of Home Buying
Years ago, we all kept paper maps in our cars, then came early (expensive) navigations systems, followed by sites like Mapquest where you could print out specific sets of routing directions. Garmin quickly came out with lower-cost personal navigation systems, and now, we all have Waze on our smartphones and can easily embed Google Maps or Mapbox on any website. As discussed at the Real Estate Standards Organization (RESO) Fall 2019 conference, real estate has come a long way from the paper catalogs used years ago. Keep reading to see the behind the scenes at the industry conference, and learn how new tools are changing how to search for a home for both consumers and Realtors. Large real estate portals selling consumer information Zillow and Trulia earned more than $1,333,600,000 (yes, $1.3 billion) in revenues in 2018 with the majority of that revenue coming from selling consumer contact and budget…
List of MLS in Real Estate
Welcome to the complete list of MLSs in the United States. Save/pin/bookmark this list to have easy access to the most complete and update list of MLSs in real estate. Understanding the MLS landscape is a complex task. This list and short article gives you a big-picture of the MLSs in the United States and how they serve consumers, real estate agents, and brokerages with listings and other services. If we have forgotten your MLS or you know of an upcoming name change/merger, please leave us a note in the comments. What is MLS in Real Estate? Is there a single definition? Yes but if you're not intimately familiar with MLSs outside of your local real estate market, these two will give you a better understanding. An MLS is much more than a database of listings and the software used to access it. Each MLS is unique with their own…
IDX Integration
IDX integration is one of the most misunderstood topics in real estate. I've seen agents, brokers, web developers, and marketing experts all struggle with this topic. After reading this article and watching the accompanying videos, you will be an expert on IDX and how IDX integration applies to today's real estate agent. What if you could become the most trusted source for online real estate listings in your local market? You may think that is impossible. After all, Realtors are now used to clients starting their new home search on big listing syndication sites. How could you ever gain an edge on these giant corporations? The answer is a little thing called IDX, but only when you understand the modern term. With your own website and IDX integration, you wield the ability to not only show off your own listings but tap into the power of the entire MLS database…
newandoldlistingpage
We're excited to be releasing a new version of our listing page this Wednesday 8/14 at 12am EDT (Tuesday night at midnight Eastern). This new version has an updated design and user experience, and is the first iteration of an ongoing project to refine and improve our listing page experience, for consumers and our customers.

Don't Just Take Our Word For It

Showcase IDX was created to help individual agents and teams level the playing field. Stop Competing and Start Winning.

Showcase IDX Support Team Rocks

Showcase IDX has a streamlined interface and easy to navigate features that don't clutter our website or lock us into particular themes. But where they really shine is in their customer service.

Your retention rate will be much higher

No subdomains or Iframes is probably my favorite feature, but at the end of the day it's about Results. I think the biggest thing is how "sticky" their site becomes. With Showcase IDX, the retention rate is much higher.

I switched from IDX Broker

I get more voluntary sign ups than I did with old provider. I think that speaks for itself.

Would You Bet Your Business On A IDX Solution?

We effectively compete every day with Zillow, Trulia and Redfin. Showcase Idx is critical to our success...Our site stats are over 12K unique users per week. That is up significantly from a year ago when we were on Wolfnet Idx.

Showcase IDX brings the leads!

I am very happy to say Showcase IDX delivers the leads! I am often told by prospects and clients that our website is their favorite in town. A large amount of business is generated through our website presence.

An IDX Feed That's Above The Rest!

Showcase IDX is a better solution in regards to search rankings. I love the hot sheets and the simplicity to create "hot sheets" for different areas.

Converts website leads at a high level

Showcase IDX is leading the way in the world of WordPress IDX solutions. Clients love utilizing the Showcase IDX product with original features not found in any other product.

What I have been looking for all along.

I have used both Diverse Solutions and IhomeFinder. Neither delivered what I wanted. Since switching to Showcase, my bounce rate is down 20%, time spent on my site has doubled, and most importantly I am getting 4x more registrations on my site.

Best IDX plugin by far!

Showcase IDX is now the only IDX I recommend to my clients. Visually, it is stunning and so much better than the other IDX’s. To top it off, customer service is top notch

WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?

Since switching to Showcase, registrations and customer interaction have increased tremendously. Showcase is so much cleaner than just using our own MLS systems...easy to use even for a beginner starting their own website.

Best WordPress IDX, period.

Simple to use (i.e. low bounce rates and high user engagement), great mapping with polygon search, fantastic mobile responsive functionality, ‘login with facebook’, ultra-fast, and they are always adding or updating functionalities.

Best IDX Solution out there

No solution even compares with what Showcase IDX offer. There is no way I would steer clients towards any other solution.

The Best All-Around IDX For Realtors Wanting Results

We were previously using another IDX for our client sites. As a digital agency focused on measurable results, we were frustrated with the limitations we had. We started researching alternatives and thank god we found Showcase IDX.

Showcase IDX all day everyday!

by far the best IDX solution out there. Forward thinking, always improving, with a clear focus on the interface - one of the major areas other providers fail. It feels like everyone else is still playing catch-up all these years later.

Get the website you deserve

Websites powered by Showcase IDX get results. Have a website that your clients will actually use and will grow your real estate brand.
