MLS® IDX Website

What is an IDX Website?

What does IDX stand for?

IDX stands for “Internet Data Exchange”.

What does IDX do?

MLS® IDX integration is the method all real estate websites use to display the latest MLS® listings. It’s asking for the latest MLS® info, such as listings, photos, and prices, which is stored at a separate location than the website itself.

What’s wrong with IDX?

The website content is loaded first, like logos, colours, and text. When that’s finished, the latest listings are loaded separately, from an entirely different system on the internet.

This happens on every page, and makes real estate websites slower than conventional websites.

“If you’re lucky, the provider you go with will offer hosting with your IDX” Chyna McRae

How is Gavamedia different?


We provide all the benefits of IDX, with all the latest Canadian listings on your website ... but without IDX.

VisitorsYour website & MLS®


Instead of storing the latest MLS® listings in a separate location, we keep this data in the same place as your website. There’s no need for an “internet data exchange,” as all the data is in the same location as your website.

This means your website content is loaded at the same time as the latest MLS® content. This is faster, and search engines like Google will rank your site as superior to other REALTOR® websites.
