WordPress is a CMS (Content Management System) used by Realtors® to communicate information about neighborhoods, trends, market dynamics, and other knowledge that can be useful to potential buyers and sellers. Realtor® members of a local Multiple Listing Service (MLS) have access to an MLS/IDX data feed that contains daily property listing information. Realtors® may use this data to display property listings on a website and/or blog for the purpose of attracting visitors and clients.
The new IDX Broker Plugin for WordPress provides Realtors® with an easy way to add integrated MLS search tools, custom neighborhood and community pages, email notification services, and property listing widgets to a WordPress site or blog.
“Brokers and Agents can quickly add fully indexable (SEO) MLS page links and IDX lead capture to their WordPress blog or site. Theme designers now have an amazing platform to help leverage and sell more sophisticated real estate themes.” says Luke Walsh, Director of Business Development for IDX, Inc. “With coverage in over 350 MLS markets nationwide and flat-rate IDX pricing, we believe that this plugin represents tremendous value for designers, multi-market brokers, and agents nationwide.”
The IDX Broker WordPress plugin requires an IDX Broker account in order to bind the IDX account data to WordPress. IDX Broker subscription plans start at $39.99/month. The plugin is now available for download from the company’s website. The plugin may also be downloaded and installed directly from within WordPress.
WordPress started in 2003 with a single bit of code to enhance the typography of everyday writing and with fewer users than you can count on your fingers and toes. Since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day. WordPress was born out of a desire for an elegant, well-architectured personal publishing system built on PHP and MySQL and licensed under the GPL. It is the official successor of b2/cafelog.
