If you are starting out in the real estate business, the opportunities are a lot more expansive than 20 years ago. The advantage now is that you can make money online by creating a directory website and allowing people to search and advertise properties on your site.
This is possible through IDX integrating websites that allow the general public to search for MLS listed properties and let real estate business owners display on their own websites properties registered in an MLS database.
If you are not familiar with MLS and IDX terms, you should know that you will frequently encounter them when starting out an online real estate business. Below you will find the definitions of MLS and IDX along with the advantages of having an IDX website.
