Can you add a mls search to a wordpress site for free? How?

A website designer made a WordPress realtor website for me but told me I would have to pay for a MLS search from a IDX company of some kind. I use CRMLS for the southern California area, is there a way to add a simple "search the MLS" onto my word press site for my visitors myself for free? If so how?

    Unfortunately your web designer is pretty much right.

    You're more than likely going to have to pay some IDX company for that functionality.

    I just did a test of a couple WP Plugins and this one seems to be pretty sweet... They have a free trial (with fictional MLS data) but it was super easy to install, and appears to be quite robust and easy to set up. For the full on version It's like $30.00 a month and you can adjust it to your own area and stuff... Anyway, it can be found here:

    Sign up for the free trial, download the plugin from your WordPress dashboard, insert the trial activation key, insert the sidebar widget and see how it works for you.. Maybe it would be worth the monthly fee?

    You can see/try my test of it here: http://island.archtesting.com

    This is a site I mocked up for a broker friend of mine selling an island... figured it would be a good place to test it ;) And please do let me know if you know anyone who wants to buy a beautiful private island in Michigan!

    The contact form on the above test site will go to me if I can help or answer any questions! Good Luck!

    That suggestion is largely obtainable to finish paying dues contributors of any community MLS. you could truly get it through acquiring a authentic resources license and then paying notwithstanding it expenditures to achieve get entry to to the MLS. trust me....it really is no longer decrease priced. MLS agencies and their databases are paid for and supported through authentic resources contributors, and they are now unlikely to provide away what expenditures them major monies.
