Real Estate Website Developers - Common Questions

Yes. You can add IDX widgets to your staging site domain.

Create your clients websites on your staging domains. Once this is completed, simply change the domain. The new domain name will already be authorized for the client and all the IDX widgets and components, with any customizations, will continue to function. No other changes are required.

New partners receive phone support to ensure rapid onboarding. Once developers are experienced and set up, normal support is via our help desk. Development partners are identified on our help desk to ensure priority support. For urgent issues, we are always available via phone!

Account billing can be centralized on your accounts on request. Otherwise each client account will have separate billing.

The contracts and commitments we make to each MLS involve signatures from three parties, the mls, the agent, and us as the vendor recipient of the IDX data. Consequently, we are always part of the current IDX approval process that is also signed by the agent.

So, we are never an invisible third party. Additionally, our training and support materials currently exist only on our branded support website. For these reasons, we are unable to offer a white label solution.

However, we are highly respectful of, and will do everything we can to support the relationships you have with your customers. Centralised account billing can assist with this too.
