Transition from Homes.com IDX websites to RE/MAX hosted IDX websites.
On behalf of Homes.com and RE/MAX, LLC, we are reaching out regarding a transition that will be taking place from Homes.com hosted IDX websites to RE/MAX, LLC hosted IDX websites. Later in Q4 of 2019, RE/MAX, LLC (under vendor Seventy3, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of RE/MAX, LLC) will intends to become their its own IDX provider. Between now and then there will be a transition period; the following will take place in your market.
- RE/MAX, LLC (Seventy3, LLC) will become the IDX vendor, under agreement with your MLS, providing IDX services to RE/MAX brokers who are approved MLS Participants
This step has already occurred in most markets. There should already be an agreement in place between your MLS and Seventy3, LLC.
- RE/MAX, LLC will launch IDX websites for approved broker MLS Participants in your market, and RE/MAX will be responsible for compliance to all rules and reporting requirements
The RE/MAX hosted IDX websites are expected to go live this month.
- RE/MAX, LLC will continue sourcing IDX data from Homes.com.
For a limited time, RE/MAX will be subcontracting its IDX data aggregation and processing to Homes.com, and Homes.com will maintain the current IDX vendor agreement in place with your MLS. At some point during 2020, RE/MAX will shift to processing data directly from your MLS.
- RE/MAX, LLC will display IDX data exclusively on MLS approved broker and agent websites hosted by RE/MAX in accordance with your IDX rules and regulations.
Seventy3, LLC will be the IDX vendor of record and will maintain full compliancy with your local IDX display and reporting rules.
If you have additional paperwork or agreements required to approve the subcontractor data relationship between Homes.com and RE/MAX, please let me know. This will occur for a limited period of time while RE/MAX transitions to processing IDX data on their own from each MLS.
Please reach out to either Homes.com or RE/MAX if you have any questions about this transition.
We appreciate your ongoing support.
