Let's face it, as a real estate agent or real estate broker, your IDX solution is the most important thing on your real estate website. It's the #1 reason clients come back to your website. It can also capture more leads that turn into clients.
Below we list the Top 10 Features of an Advanced IDX Solution for your Real Estate Website.
10. Property Organizer - Save Searches and Properties
Today's IDX solutions allow consumers to save their searches and properties into an Online Property Organizer. This allows them to return at anytime to view where they have left off or see the properties they have saved. The IDX Control Panel allows you an easy view to see what searches are being performed by whom and what properties they are saving.
9. Daily Email Property Alerts
This feature allows clients (themselves) to setup search criteria where any new listing hitting the MLS will be emailed to them. The IDX Control Panel allows you an easy view to see who is receiving what and what their defined search is.
8. User Registration - DON'T PROMPT IMMEDIATELY!!
It has been studied and surveyed that you don't want to prompt a consumer for registration right away...especially if they don't even know what they're getting. With an advanced IDX solution, you can control when the consumer is prompted to register. For example, you can say after 5 searches are performed, the user is now prompted and can't continue without registering. Or for example, you can say after 3 times viewing property details, they are now forced to register. What this does is engages the user before asking for information.
7. Mobile IDX Website
A mobile IDX website allows your clients to easily search the MLS from their smart phone. Consumers accessing your website through their smart phone can be auto-redirected to your IDX mobile website. They say that within a few years there will be more searching from cell phones than from desktop or laptop computers.
6. Quick Search
A Quick Search in the header is almost a must for any real estate agent website. This is what drives users to your MLS Search and your advanced IDX where leads can be captured.
Ultra Agent provides an Advanced IDX Solution with Advanced Lead Capture. Ultra Agent IDX is powered by iHomeFinder. We offer the best pricing for iHomeFinder IDX with packages starting at $34.95 /mo. which includes the website with IDX.
