Conversely, most brokerages nationwide have the ability to display not only their listings, but the listings of other brokerages within their MLSs. For their home shoppers, this creates an easier, better home shopping experience.
This fall, MLS will finally come to New York City and revolutionize the New York City real estate landscape. While NYC home shoppers will enjoy an improved, easier home shopping experience, several real estate companies will enjoy the benefits of increased content, traffic, and conversions.
Onboard Informatics has believed in making it easier for home shoppers to find their next best place since 2001. Today, we are proud to announce that Onboard Informatics will be one of the first and only RLS IDX providers to offer New York City MLS listings through our IDX Listings Search Engine, the only Web Service API of its kind. The IDX Listings Search Engine enables the integration of IDX search capabilities into MLS board-approved websites while also offering:
- Complete IDX Management
- A single point of access to over 100 MLSs including the newly available New York City MLSs
- Seamless integration with Onboard's community data, school data, points of interest, and more
- IDX Listings content that directly integrates into your site’s pages enabling the full benefits of SEO
Jonathan Bednarsh, Onboard Informatics’ President and COO, had this to say about Onboard’s newly available NYC IDX offerings:
“As a New York-based company, Onboard is thrilled with this announcement. We're excited to add this to the full spectrum of local data we've cultivated since 2001 and are honored that we were asked to be one of the first providers of the New York City IDX.”
For years, New York City real estate companies have been missing out on the benefits and convenience of MLS and IDX. After this fall, the New York City real estate landscape will never be the same.
