This is often a case due to a data sharing agreement that your MLS has with another MLS but because they still have separate IDX feeds, your website’s IDX feed can only display the listings that are directly a part of your MLS. The easiest way to check this is by googling the address of one of the properties that you see as active in your MLS but do not see on your website. Go to the realtor.com page for that listing and scroll down until you see the information showing the Listing Agent or Brokerage. In that same section look for “Data Source” and you will see the name of the MLS source for that listing. If it is not YOUR MLS then this listing is not going to show up on your site.
What if I want all of the listings in my MLS to show up on my website’s IDX Feed?
If you still want to have these listings on your website then you need to do 2 things:
- Make sure you are a member of the MLS that the listing originated in and if not join that board
- Upgrade your IDXBroker account to add a second (or third) MLS
