All Northern Virginia MLS IDX Search Engines. 31, Add More!
The goal here is to list ALL the MLS search engines in the MRIS area (Northern Virginia, DC Maryland) that pull the entire MLS (all broker listings).
MRIS is the back end provider of the Northern Virginia MLS. They allow Realtors to log into their back end system via Matrix.MRIS.com. But they also let brokers and 3rd party providers have access to the MLS Data and republish it in their own manner via IDX and RETS feeds.
While almost every Realtor website has a "Click here to search," 95% of those link to a partner that slaps their name and photo on it, like Homesdatabase.com with about 1,000 sub accounts.
This list took me 2 hours to compile. Let me know if I missed any!
10,000 NOVA Realtors, but only 32 31 total unique search engines that pull the MLS (all broker listings) directly, yet they display them differently

BrioRealty.com Choice Real Estate NVFH.com (registration required for details) Realtywatch.com Redfin.com TheBestHomeSearchEver.com and BirdsEyeSearch.com VirginiaMLS.com ZipRealty.com (registration required for details) 3rd Party Providers (most Popular), something an agent or Broker would subscribe to and put their name all over it.
