Commingling MLS Rules

Last Updated: Apr 14, 2015 03:52PM PDT

Some Multiple Listing Services' contracts prohibit data commingling. This means that they do not permit their listing data to show alongside data from another MLS feed. Fortunately, IDX Broker has a solution that ensures you remain in compliance. There are no changes to the look and feel of your IDX Broker search pages for your users. All of the separation on a basic search occurs after the user initiates the search, in order to remain consistent and eliminate confusion. This only applies when BOTH of the following conditions apply to a specific IDX Broker account:

  1. The account has more than one active MLS attached to the account.
  2. AND one or more of the MLS attached to the account prohibit commingling of data.   

IDX Broker will break out ALL non-commingle results into a separate tab on any results page of a search across multiple, non-commingle MLS.

The results tab that combines all commingle MLS is simply titled "Search Results".

Any widgets created on a non-commingle account have a Market Area selector which allows for the selection of only one MLS at a time.

Map search will load your primary MLS, and force the user to select one MLS or the other.
