A custom IDX solution helps to speed up the real estate search, saving both realtors and consumers time.
Eugene, Oregon -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/17/2008 -- Real estate agent Eric Verdi with Maryland Real Estate Group has employed the services of IDX, Inc. to help him create a unique and simple online search experience for his clients. Potential clients in the Ijamsville, MD. area can now search hundreds of listings on the Metropolitan Regional Information System (MRIS) with ease via Verdi’s straightforward online search software, IDX Broker. Clients can create custom search criteria in an effort to narrow down their results and find their ideal property.
The ability to save search criteria and sign up for automatic email update when a home matching their specifications becomes available on MRIS is just one of many ways that IDX Broker helps make the property search simpler for clients. Custom IDX tools such as an interactive map powered by Google maps allow clients to view the properties pinpointed on an interactive road, satellite, or terrain map. Other features such as links on the details pages of each property help clients to quickly request more information from the listing agent, schedule a showing, print a flyer, email the listing details, calculate likely mortgage payments, and take a virtual tour.
Verdi has access to the client contact information through his administrative log-in page, which contains a section for him to manage all his leads. Using this custom IDX solution, Verdi has complete control over the look of his website and can edit everything from his custom CSS to his global wrappers, so that his search appears as a seamlessly integrated part of his website. Statistical updates from MRIS as to property additions and removals as well as price increases and decreases along with traffic reports detailing which pages on his site are receiving the most traffic help Verdi to manage his business more efficiently.
