More and more MLS's require vendors like us to pay Data Access Fees that are passed through to the customer (you). These vary from $0/month up to $33/month. If we don't have to charge a pass-through fee, we don't. For the MLS you select, this will be clearly displayed on your sign up form, before you complete your sign up process. Although the rates may vary slightly, 99% of IDX companies charge these fees.
You can also see these on our MLS Coverage page.
Yes. You can purchase a license for additional sites and add additional users.
Our Essentials plan includes 2 admin users and your Premium plan includes 5. It's also easy to add additional sites. If you're a broker or have a team and would like to provide a website for each member on your team, we can help you with that as well.
Showcase IDX was founded in 2003. Since then, we've closed a private equity round and grown our team. Now, we're the leading IDX WordPress plugin for real estate and are growing faster than ever. We democratize technology for agents and brokers, creating innovative products that empower our customers to grow.
If you want to know more about our team, where we're based, or why we love coming to work, you can read more here.
Great question. Many of the agents and brokers that work with us do have web designer/developer already or are setting up their website themselves.
If you’re familiar with WordPress and how to update a theme, you can easily get started today.
We also see many agents and brokers that know that having the right IDX technology is critical to building your business and helping your clients. They often sign up first on our website and then contact one of our Showcase IDX Certified Partners for help building their site and setting up modern real estate marketing processes. We also have a few partners that work specifically with websites on our approved real estate web designers list.
If you'd like to sign up, you can set up time with our concierge team too and they can recommend a developer while you're MLS approval is processed. Either way, you're trial will not start until your MLS access is approved.
We do NOT build websites, instead we build the engines that power your website. This lets us focus on building the ONLY IDX and home search that consumers choose over Zillow.
If you need help building your website or customizing your existing website, talk to one of our Showcase IDX Certified Partners. These partners are the best of the best. They know modern real estate marketing. Each certified partner page shows you exactly what each partner specializes in and the budgets they help with.
For web developers, know that we will not compete with you either. Other IDX vendors have begun building websites that compete with their partners. So, not only do they use subdomains and iFrames, which Google hates, but now they compete with their partners.
You don't want your website's search to look clunky and unprofessional. We seamlessly add the IDX search and engagement tools with your overall design like it was designed with search from the beginning.
You can easily
- Add the search anywhere on your site
- Choose from eight different map styles to personalize your site
- Add nine different lead capture widgets into your site
- Use CSS to customize the look and feel
- Choose to feature agent and/or office listings at the top of the search results
- Pick from 4 flexible display options for live IDX content, including grid view, list view, scrollable galleries, and auto-rotating slideshow galleries
- Pick the registration and content locks that work best for you business
- And more.
Now, if you want add a new feature, suggest different UX/UI for the plugin, etc, we welcome your ideas as well. We have created some proprietary features such as the Friends & Family Search from ideas within our team but many of our updates over the past year have come from the thousands of agents and brokers that use Showcase IDX to power their websites.
Once you become a Showcaser, you'll gain access to our private masterclass group and we'll share with your our ideas board where you can submit your ideas and see/vote on those ideas from other top performing agents.
Absolutely. We integrate deeply with WordPress on your site to create 100% search engine indexable content. Our IDX WordPress plugin turns your website and marketing into a living platform, with drip emails to clients with new listings, continually updated hotsheets and detailed listing pages. Here is a SEO case study walking you through both how to build your real estate website to rank and what is possible.
Showcase IDX NEVER uses a subdomain (e.g. search.yourwebsite.com) or iframe. Google doesn't like them and neither do we. Learn more in this 3-minute video.
Our customers and the data says so. Don't just take our word. See what real estate agents and top marketers say about us.
- Buyers and sellers spent more than 29,400,000 minutes on our customer's websites last year. That’s like watching Avengers Endgame over 161,000+ times.
- Our customers see 83% additional traffic from Google (on average) and an increase in lead generation that gets better as they're able to focus on content and their business while we focus on providing your search and engagement tools.
- "Showcase IDX retains 8.5x more clients than IDX Broker and 4x more clients than the typical iHomeFinder website". Learn more here.
Some MLS® systems offer a free or inexpensive search program but most agents quickly find ou these solutions are not built for modern marketing or lead capture. The MLS systems are great at delivering data but not making that data friendly to consumers. We are great at making real estate data is useful and creating effective engagement tools for agents and brokers to help clients.

Feel confident knowing that our core technology is built on the cloud platform that powers Google, Spotify, and Paypal, with 100k miles of fiber optic cable powering your IDX solution. Our maps are the fastest maps available, sharing the same platform as Facebook, The Weather Company, Adobe, Snap, and Mastercard.
No, absolutely not.
We take site speed very seriously (in fact, we rarely ever shut up about it) and we created this plugin with performance in mind.
Feel confident knowing that we're built on the cloud platform that powers Google, Spotify, and Paypal, with 100k miles of fiber optic cable powering your IDX solution.
We also optimized all the code for the fastest possible loading times and can recommend a few great hosting companies if you need a recommendation that won't break the bank.
No, unfortunately not. It's almost impossible to rank a real estate site that is NOT built on WordPress.org (self-hosted or hosted through a Certified Partner). Watch this video to learn more.
The solutions that work on Wix, Squarespace and WordPress.com are all iframe or subdomain based products, and we know that's not the best solution for agents as the content is either 1) not indexable by Google or 2) Google treats the subdomain as a completely different website, so it's incredibly difficult to rank. We also hear that generating consistent new leads from those hosting options can be hard.
We've invested heavily in creating tools optimized for self-hosted WordPress sites. There's a reason 60.3% of all websites in 2019 are self-hosted WordPress sites - it gives businesses the most control and flexibility to grow your site as your business grows. It also lets us focus on what works best for you today and tomorrow.
Websites built on WordPress + Showcase IDX generate 83% additional traffic from Google. Start your trial to get the engine powering the most successful sites.
If you need to know more about the difference between WordPress.org and WordPress.com, this is a good overview.
Don't worry, it will be easy to get started, and we'll be here to help.
Step 1 – Paperless MLS documentation.
You will receive an email shortly with links to the e-documents for the MLS’s you belong to. We will review your application and ensure compliance with the MLS. This typically can take anywhere from the same day to 5 business days depending on the MLS and how fast we get the signed documentation back from you. Please be sure to read and review your documentation (in some cases it has additional instructions which you must complete separately).
Step 2 – MLS Approval.
Once you’ve been approved by the MLS, we’ll send you your personal IDX key and installation instructions. You will need your personal IDX key to make your Showcase IDX search work on your site.

Would You Bet Your Business On A IDX Solution?
I have used a couple different idx solutions in the six years I have been a real estate agent. Showcase IDX has been easy to use and powerful enough to write neighborhood blog posts with vague boundaries to precise condo building blog posts.
Because Nashville Home Guru ranks so high in many different communities they are often surprized we a team of less than 10 people (including agents).
We effectively compete everyday with Zillow, Trulia and Redfin ... Showcase Idx is critical to our success. No comparison. Our site stats for Nashville Home Guru are over 12K unique users per week. That is up significantly from a year ago when we were on Wolfnet Idx. The support team is very helpful. If you work your website as hard as we do ... it is important for support gets back to your in a timely manner.
What I have been looking for all along.
This is my 3rd IDX, I have used both Diverse Solutions and IhomeFinder. Neither delivered what I wanted: a simple but awesome user experience that looked great, was easy to use, SEO friendly and fast .
I found Showcase IDX after lots of research. It met my expectations, and then some. The quality of the search compares with the major real estate portal sites. 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. Those results speak for themselves.
Clients and leads love the home search. It is sleek, very user-friendly and has great mapping features. They can easily ask you as the agent a question from a listing. They can even add friends and family to their search, which makes your site sticky. Go for the premium content, users love to see the extra charts and data!
Showcase IDX has the others beat. Competition for consumers' attention is intense. If you do not have the right IDX, people will immediately go to a different site. I find more web traffic returning to my site when I switched to Showcase IDX. They also are always making improvements to make sure that they stay ahead of the curve.
Showcase IDX has great support. I always use the chat feature online, and I am able to talk to a staff member every time that has answers to my questions within minutes.
Showcase IDX brings the leads!
A large amount of business is generated through our website presence, which has been a 15+ year ongoing project. Content creation is crucial to drive new organic traffic to the website, and delivering a valuable experience for our online visitors is paramount to me. At the end of the day though, if the IDX is not a rock-solid experience for our visitors, we won't get leads we need. 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.
That makes me proud of the work that was put into it, and gives me the confidence that our search technology is exceeding our online visitors' expectations. Showcase IDX offers features not found in any other IDX. I always look forward to new product offerings, and can't wait to see what is next to allow us to shine online!
I have reached out to support several times, and have always had a good experience with Support requests.
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. Showcase IDX is the closest thing you're going to get to a custom coded IDX solution for your website. I like that it just flat out works for agents.
I think the biggest thing is how "sticky" their site becomes. Almost any site can generate leads but those same leads keep searching, with Showcase IDX, the retention rate is much higher.
I've rarely had an issue where I needed support. That's a testament to how intuitive it is. The one time I needed support, I was answered promptly. Yes, I got treated as if I knew nothing and as a developer that annoys me, but the support team walked me through the ENTIRE process to get the problem solved. Thankfully my computer was on when they asked. 😉
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.
We believe every Real Estate Agency has unique needs depending on their geographic market, agency size, competitors and budget. Therefore, we shy away from "cookie-cutter" sites and marketing plans and try to provide customizable and scalable solutions. Showcase IDX acts as the foundation of our sites and campaigns. The ease of "Hotsheet" shortcodes and "Customized Searches" allows us to quickly scale and build out landing pages integral to our marketing campaigns. The layout of the property detail page is designed in a way that is conversion-centric. The layout is user-friendly with well placed call-to-action buttons.
Although we haven't evaluated every single IDX out there, we looked at a lot of options. Once we discovered Showcase IDX and communicated with their team, we knew we did not need to look further. It aligns with our ethos of providing a great user experience to the end-users.
The team at Showcase IDX have been very great. Fortunately, we have not needed much support. Their interface is very easy to implement and use. When we have needed help, they've been very quick to respond and answer our questions. Kurt has also been amazing with providing us with industry insights so that we can provide even more value to the Realtors we work with.
Head and shoulders above the rest, and it's really not even close.
Showcase IDX has a number of dynamic features that help make it the superior WordPress IDX solution for our clients. Included are a range of registration settings that help maximize lead generation, social login capability for frontend users, customizable SEO settings for listing detail pages, and a number of slick interactive tools that truly give home buyers a unique search experience. In addition, Showcase IDX also includes most (if not all) of the MLS fields in any market, which is a major SEO boost for our clients as website competition gets stronger.
The flexibility to connect to advanced, third-party CRMs is also a plus, but just having a Showcase IDX account will still provide you with basic lead management tools, like being able to see what listings users are viewing and setting leads up on saved searches just to name a couple.
Over the years, the majority of my clients have been using expensive, all-in-one platforms, so we're only just getting started with Showcase IDX. We fully expect more of the agents and brokers we work with to love the value and flexibility Showcase IDX provides, especially as results our current users are seeing continue to improve.
Compared to any other WordPress IDX plugin, Showcase IDX is head and shoulders above the rest, and it's really not even close.
Support has been amazing. Tiffany usually responds to any issues the same day I reach out.
An easy decision for real estate agents
Showcase IDX provides a user-friendly search & powerful lead generation tools that seamlessly integrate into your website. For agents wanting a state-of-the-art real estate website that adds REAL VALUE for people in their community, Showcase IDX is an easy decision.
Showcase IDX's clean, modern, and user-friendly search is unmatched with other IDX plugins.
Nothing less than 5 STARS working with the support team at Showcase IDX.
Showcase IDX all day everyday!
From a developer standpoint it's incredibly easy to setup, and we're wholly confident recommending it to our clients. It's great to offer a solution we know our clients will love. More importantly, we know the Showcase IDX team will continue improving their platform and staying on the bleeding edge. That is rare in an industry like real estate that's notoriously slow to embrace change.
I think they're 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. Making sure the application is user-friendly is paramount to success in this space. They were also one of the first to fully embrace WordPress and make listings indexable. It feels like everyone else is still playing catch-up all these years later.
Excellent! The team has been very responsive and helpful the few times I've had to reach out.
Love the Simplicity of Use of Showcase IDX
I switched from IDX Broker because I liked the look of the results and wanted to move away from a sub domain. Creating hotsheets is quick and easy and adding to MY pages and post is as simple as a shortcode. No need to create separate pages and more SEO.
Even though I do not force sign up and never have, I get more voluntary sign ups than I did with old provider. I think that speaks for itself.
Support is very good, they have only missed a couple of things and that's usually because they are constantly working on improving their product. If I don't get a response, all I do is call and they get right on it.
Presentation, easy of use, they do a Facebook live session almost every week and some of the members are willing to pitch and and help as well. We have some geeks in the group.
Showcase IDX - The Industry Standard IDX Solution
Showcase IDX is leading the way in the world of WordPress IDX solutions. The design of the product is fantastic and converts website leads at a high level. The team at Showcase IDX is very agile, working directly with its customers to create fantastic new features that real estate pros need!

Showcase IDX is leading the industry with original features not found in any other product, a beautiful design that makes our websites look fantastic, and most importantly - a wonderful team who are truly passionate about what they do; helping their clients scale their business online with cutting-edge real estate marketing tools.
An IDX Feed That's Above The Rest!
My web developer recommended another IDX vendor, with excellent reviews all over the web but when the search component of my site was unveiled, I was utterly disappointed. It was ridiculously bare bones. The other IDX vendor said that's what we receive based on the MLS data. My MLS said it was up to each IDX vendor to change the look/format of the feed and provide tools for consumers. Both answers did nothing to help me. In frustration, I started to call other IDX vendors on my own then I called Showcase IDX and spoke to Andi. She understood what I was looking for.
My site is new but the feedback I'm receiving is fantastic. There's no need for clients to use Zillow or Realtor.com.
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. Enough visits to a hot sheet page will help me in regards to "anytown" homes for sale as opposed to Orlando homes for sale.
Their support has been fantastic and their availability has been top notch. My web developer is going to make them his first choice going forward as well.
Showcase IDX Support Team Rocks
Showcase IDX is a great tool for your real estate website- sleek, professional, easy to use- but where they really shine is in their customer service. Tiffany in particular was a great partner in launching our site and we can't say enough about how valuable her assistance was.
Our site is brand new, so we don't have a lot of client feedback to date.
Showcase IDX has a streamlined interface and easy to navigate features that don't clutter our website or lock us into particular themes. I especially appreciate the customizable buttons and text.
I have been most impressed with the support team at Showcase IDX. Without their help, and in particular, Tiffany Soucy, our website would not have launched on time. She was a great problem solver, and worked tirelessly with our web developer to resolve our display issues and successfully roll out our new site.
Best IDX Solution out there
Showcase IDX provides an SEO friendly IDX solution. As a web development agency owner, it is very important for me, and my clients to deliver an SEO friendly solution. It delivers everything you would need for an IDX solution and more!
My clients are realtors, they have a busy schedule. What's important to me is how their clients work with them through their websites. Showcase IDX helped me provide them with solutions that are simple and help provide them maximum conversion throughout their sales cycle.
Before installing Showcase IDX the first time on a. clients website, I examined numerous solutions to be integrated with wordpress. I identified those solutions through the WordPress Repository, as well as examining HTML code on various websites for San Diego, CA realtors. And All I can tell you is that no solution even compares with what Showcase IDX offer. There is no way I would steer clients towards any other solution.
I collaborated with a couple support team agents, their reactivity through Live Chat, Email and Phone was first class. I'm very thankful for the information they were able to provide me at the time I needed it.
Best WordPress IDX, period.
I can’t say enough good things about Showcase IDX (which I believe to be the best available WordPress IDX).
Simple to use (i.e. low bounce rates and high user engagement), great mapping with polygon search, search by schools, fantastic mobile responsive functionality, ‘login with facebook’, ultra-fast, MLS updates every 10 minutes or less.. and they are always adding or updating functionalities.
Bugs are relatively non-existent, and their support is absolute top tier. Solid product and a solid team behind it. My life is exceptionally better because ShowcaseIDX exists, and I mean that.
The best IDX solution ever created and it keeps getting better!
First, Yes – I’m a Realtor! I have experimented with too many IDX playgrounds!
Finally, ShowcaseIDX blows the doors off, the roof off, knocks the ball out of the park!
Staff is amazing, communication is fast and on point. I’m thrilled to be in my industry all over again with ShowcaseIDX and they just keep on rolling out improvements that make them not the top choice, but the only choice in my opinion.
Best IDX plugin by far!
As a developer with many years of using different IDX’s (Diverse Solutions, iHomefinder, etc.), I have to say Showcase IDX is by far my favorite and it is now the only IDX I recommend to my clients.
Not only is it super easy to use, but the IDX is powerful and functions exactly how my clients need it.
Visually, it is stunning and so much better than the other IDX’s. To top it off, customer service is top notch… I get most of my responses the same day! If you are looking for an IDX, I highly recommend Showcase.
Know what home buyers are looking for
As a developer of real estate websites, I use several different IDX solutions for my clients. So when it came time to choose the IDX for my own real estate business website, it was a challenge. I selected Showcase IDX. Initially I chose Showcase IDX because it was responsive, and offered both of my MLS feeds, along with quick integration.
I stayed with Showcase IDX because their service is great, and they listen!
Showcase IDX is aware of what home buyers are looking for when they search online, and they have integrated these features. I can quickly create neighborhood, school and other specialty pages to address the needs of my market. With so many IDX options, it can be overwhelming to make a selection. But choosing Showcase IDX was easy, and so is using it!
Simple - Powerful - Flexible
We were able to integrate Showcase with our WordPress site within a day. It was easily customized to fit our website structure, look-and-feel. From a prospective buyer experience, it has all the features one would need and/or utilize; it's easy to use! The path of least resistance is crucial when converting a passive site visitor into an engaged lead.
Support is nothing short of phenomenal. If I call, I get a human. If I email support, I get an acknowledgment immediately and a response within 20 minutes. Sometimes I get a phone call back rather than an email. Who does that these days!? #rhetorical?
You can't go wrong with Showcase IDX
If you're looking for a personal, trustworthy WordPress IDX provider, you can't go wrong with Showcase IDX!
They have vision, people who care & top notch support! Thank u for making my day by working with me on my problem... I know that you have my back.
Simply put, a non-developer can deploy absolutely beautiful IDX search functionality on their site in less than an hour.
I have used many IDX plugins for WordPress, and nothing comes even close when it comes to simplicity and beautiful appearance.
WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
Showcase has always been easy to use even for a beginner starting their own website. Building website pages and including specific hotsheets and shortcode widgets has never been easier. I use the shared search functionality to gather the list of homes and email or text the client a link of homes we will be previewing throughout the day. Showcase is so much cleaner than just using our own MLS systems.
Clients always comment on the ease of use and the ability to quickly send a message, schedule an appointment or share a search. The photos and how they are displayed has also been a huge draw for potential clients, far superior than the competition. Since switching to Showcase registrations and customer interaction has increased tremendously.
Plus, the support team has been great. They will respond to issues small or large with no hesitation.
