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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
