Easy-to-navigate IDX search tools speed up and simplify the online property search experience for both real estate professionals and their clients.
Eugene, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/05/2010 -- Curtis Darragh with Houlihan Lawrence, Inc. has chosen to employ IDX, Inc. to modernize, simplify and organize the search function of his real estate website, with the incorporation of a custom IDX solution. Residing in Poughkeepsie, New York, Darragh is a member of the Mid Hudson MLS (MHMLS). With this IDX Broker software addition, he is now able to display the most up-to-date MHMLS information, directly onto his own personal website, providing his clients with the most user-friendly and comprehensive real estate search on the web.
Basic, advanced, map, address and listing ID search categories simply brush the surface of the abundant amount of options available for potential home buyers browsing pleasure. One of the more unique of the search functionalities is the map search. Powered by Google Maps, home seekers have the ability to pinpoint their chosen property on an interactive road, terrain and/ or satellite map. Then may then utilize this information to interpret their relativity to nearby main roads, landmarks, convenience locations, school districts, malls, parks, neighborhoods and other cities, to distinguish if this is truly a location they could envision themselves living and eventually referring to as “home”. Consumers also have the tools to save their specified search preferences and receiving automatic email updates, coming directly from the MHMLS, when a property matching their criteria becomes available.
Access to his website visitors saved search information can be found by Darragh in an administrative login page, provided to him by this custom IDX Broker addition. It is here that he not only has the ability to control the look, layout and design of each page and function on his website, but he can also chose which search functionalities will be available to consumers. He can view traffic reports, detailing which pages and listings on his site are being view most frequently, letting him know which properties are of the highest demand. Darragh also has the resources to create dynamic title tags and custom XML codes, increasing his listings visibility, as well as their chances of syndication to major real estate search engines, such as: Truila, RSS Feed and Real Estate for Sale Network, to name a few.
