IDX (INTERNET DATA EXCHANGE) OPTIONS
The Flexmls link can be embedded directly on your website and is free of charge. To retrieve the link in flexmls go to Preferences then IDX Manager and scroll all the way down to “click here to get IDX 2.0 lite.” The link will then appear in the box to the right and can be copied from there. You will notice flexmls offers a few upgrades to that link which can be purchased directly through them. For more information contact 800-437-4232 ext. 108 ** This is not to be confused with the link that is available through Florida Realtors® (FR®) and can only be obtained through them.
Standard IDX Feed
This feed contains all the same information as the other two options however it is provided as raw data. Your programmer will need to have knowledge of the RETS server where the data is retrieved and general coding knowledge in order to properly embed the data on your site. RAPB now provides the Standard IDX at no cost.
Broker IDX Feed
This feed only contains the broker’s office listings and is also provided as raw data. Just as the standard feed your programmer will need to have knowledge of the RETS server where the data is retrieved and general coding knowledge in order to properly embed the data on your site. The broker will need to provide the website the feed will be displayed on as well as sign a Participant Data Access Agreement. RAPB now provides the Broker IDX at no cost.
