This custom IDX solution simplifies the real estate search process for clients and creates a more informed consumer.


Eugene, Oregon -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/05/2008 -- IDX, Inc. is pleased to announce the addition of Michael James with Michael Saunders & Co. to the growing list of real estate agents and brokers who are simplifying the real estate search for their clients with the use of custom IDX Broker software. Operating out of Sarasota, Fla., James is a member of the Mid Florida Regional MLS (MFRMLS), and his clients can now easily access this listing data. This custom IDX solution is able to automatically extract the raw property details from MFRMLS, formant them, and display them as an integrated and simple to understand part of James’ website.

IDX Broker gives James the ability to completely control the look of his website, via an administrative log-in, where he can choose which advanced search categories will be displayed, edit his custom CSS, and create global, page, and category wrappers for his site. James has access to client contact information and saved search criteria through his administrative dashboard, which also features updates from MFRMLS as to the number of properties added or removed and price increases or decreases daily. James can see the amount of times his site is visited each day and mange the number of times each individual page is viewed.

Customers have access to IDX tools on the details page of each listing that link them quickly to request more information, schedule a showing, email property details, print a flyer, pinpoint the property on an interactive Google map, and calculate likely mortgage payments. In creating a more informed consumer, James can also increase the visibility of his listings by creating custom XML codes for syndication to popular real estate search websites such as REFSN, Trulia, Zillow, Google Base, Homescape, Live Deal, Hot Pads, City Cribs, Prop Smart, Oodle, Gumiyo, Luxury Homes, and RSS Feed.
