We’re excited to announce our updated Carrot IDX, featuring more Advanced Search options, mapped results, and an improved interactive map view — and now it’s included in the price of our Advanced Marketer plan! Basically… FREE IDX.
Whether you’re a buyer’s agent, seller’s agent, or both, we know how important it is to create an easy and enjoyable home search experience on your website. There’s a lot of competition out there, from other agents, to ibuyers, to the big names in online home search that are quickly becoming the go-to destinations for people starting their search.
Having the latest in MLS property search and listings on your website is a surefire way to keep retail buyers and sellers on your site for longer, giving you a better chance to convert them to leads. It also adds credibility to your personal brand as a trusted Agent and to your website, helping you further build authority in your market.
That’s why our Product team here at Carrot set out to bring a better IDX integration to our Agent members’ sites. This Carrot IDX update brings the search experience retail buyers and sellers expect from the big names in online home search to your Carrot site.
Here’s what you and your site visitors can look forward to with this update:
- Streamlined property search that combines Advanced Search options with mapped results
- Interactive, searchable map view
- More Advanced Search options allowing visitors to filter their search by more parameters
- And a major pricing update to our Carrot plans…
That’s right… With this update, Carrot IDX is now included in the monthly price of our Advanced Marketer plan at $199/mo — all you pay are your local MLS pass-through fees!
“You guys have changed my life. The leads are fueling my family’s vision. And the values/mission behind it all makes me a huge advocate for Carrot… My business has doubled each of the last 2 years… I grossed around $350k last year, and a huge part of that is due to Carrot.”– ERIC SZTANYO

Why Do I Need IDX?
Websites like Zillow, Realtor.com, and Redfin have quickly become household names over the past several years for anyone looking to casually browse for properties or begin a serious home search.
Creating an easy-to-use, comprehensive home search experience directly on your website keeps visitors on your Carrot site for longer — and that helps increase your chances of converting those visitors into leads.
Carrot IDX Improvements
This update to Carrot IDX is an all-around improvement that will help our Agent sites rival the big names in online home search:
1. Streamlined property search
This update streamlines the property search experience by combining Advanced Search with mapped results. Now, when visitors are narrowing their search for properties, the map populates in real-time with listings that meet their parameters. Visitors can also pan and zoom across the map while in their filtered search.
2. Improved map view
Visitors can click, drag, and zoom to browse properties by location, or draw a polygon to filter down their search. The list of available properties updates as visitors navigate through the map, and the sweeten the deal — visitors can click on and flip through photos without leaving the map!
3. More Advanced Search options
Site visitors can refine their search directly from the map view from a variety of Advanced Search options. From schools and specific property features — pools only, please! — to house style and property condition, visitors have a multitude of MLS-search filters that will help them find the perfect home for them.
… And We Aren’t Stopping There.
We are always looking to evolve, innovate, and improve Carrot to provide the best product for our members and the best experience for their site visitors. What better way to figure out how to do that than to listen to what our members have to say?
So over the past several months, the Carrot Product team has been connecting with our Agent members to learn how the Carrot platform can better solve the problems facing today’s real estate agents.
We heard from our members how important it is to have an easy-to-use, comprehensive property search and beautiful MLS listings on their sites to rival the big names in online home search that their sites are competing with today. That’s why we updated Carrot IDX to provide members with the latest in IDX property listings and search directly on their Carrot sites.
And this Carrot IDX update is just the beginning of an exciting year of new and improved features for real estate Agents! We have big plans this year to make Carrot even more powerful for Agents, so stay tuned for more updates and announcements in the coming months.
