Multiple Listing Services (MLSs) are private, regional databases used by real estate brokers to share property listings on behalf of sellers and cooperate with each other. According to the National Association of Realtors, there are over 800 MLSs in the US.

To add MLS listings to their website, brokers need an Internet Data Exchange (IDX) solution. An IDX solution establishes a data connection between the MLS and real estate websites so brokers can import listings, display them on their website, and ensure they’re updated.

Such a solution can be expensive and require you to manually enter property listings on your website — but not with the right WordPress plugin. The plugins below are affordable and easy tools for adding searchable listings to your WordPress website.
