iHOUSEweb is the industry leader in integrated IDX websites. We don't use WordPress or 3rd party IDX plugins. Our IDX is 100% integrated into our website platform which is developed and maintained in-house by our skilled team of developers. We've taken inspiration from some of the most popular home search portals (including Zillow, Trulia, and Realtor.com) and designed a cutting-edge IDX search interface that combines speed, simplicity, and aesthetics all in one innovative package.
IDX, which stands for "Internet Data Exchange", is the technology that connects your MLS to your website, enabling automatic listing updates, listing search capabilities, and more. While IDX makes the entire MLS database of listings and photos available to your website, how that data is utilized and presented is entirely up to the IDX provider.
Most IDX providers offer some sort of search functionality that allows website visitors to search for homes by location, along with search filters for bedrooms, bathrooms, and other conditions. But the design and quality of the search interface varies greatly.
The presentation of individual listings also varies greatly from provider to provider. The speed and manor in which listing information loads, the arrangement of listing photos, the grouping of listing features, and the presence (or absence) of client-facing tools and features are all things to consider when selecting an IDX provider.
Our IDX is in a class of it's own. Here are a handfull of features that set our IDX apart from the competition.
Our side-by-side search results presentation (map on left, scrolling listing tiles on right) is intuitive and familiar. Hover your mouse over any tile to illuminate its corresponding map marker.
Adjust your search criteria while you browse, and see the map and result tiles update in real time! All search filters are easily accessible without ever leaving the search results page.
Draw a shape, search by radius, or detect your location right from the listing results page! Map search modes are fully integrated into the standard search results page for a seamless map search experience.
Client-side caching enables LIGHTNING-FAST browsing! Listing details open in a modal window on top of search results so you never leave the search results view. This means NO loading between listings.
Leverage your MLS data to capture more leads! Indexable saved search pages help you gain visibility in Google search results, while strategic Teaser Registration™ interrupts help you capture more leads.
Your registered clients can save listings, save searches, and even enable HouseTrack email reports. Every listing page includes "similar listings" suggestions, "search nearby" shortcuts, an interactive payment calculator, and more useful tools and info.
