« Internet Data Exchange

Internet Data Exchange (IDX) allows Participants of the South Central Wisconsin to display active MLS listings on their websites. Under IDX, SCWMLS Participants exchange consent to display each other's listings on their respective internet websites.

The following Statement of Multiple Listing Policy became effective upon approval by the NAR Board of Directors on May 22, 2000:

Associations of REALTORS® and their Multiple Listing Services are encouraged to immediately, and must by January 1, 2002, enable MLS Participants to display on Participants' public web sites aggregated MLS active listing information through, at Participants' option, either downloading and placing the data on Participants' public access web sites or by framing such information on the MLS or association public access web site (if such site is available) subject to the requirements of state law and regulation.

At its meeting of September 26, 2000, the Board of Directors of the SCWMLS approved the Rules for Internet Data Exchange. Participants of the SCWMLS were authorized to begin implementing Internet Data Exchange on October 16, 2000.

Internet Data Exchange is the next stage in the evolution of the multiple listing service as the primary means of enhancing cooperation between REALTORS® to facilitate the sale and purchase of real estate. We are pleased to be able to offer this opportunity to you.
