In a word:  empowerment.

With a LISTINGBOOK ACCOUNT (which is free but by invitation only -  more on that in a sec), you will have access to the most robust search engine available for finding your dream home here in Alexandria, VA or, if you are a seller, staying on top of the competition.    And, hands down,  LISTINGBOOK gives you the most detail you will find anywhere.

LISTINGBOOK not only gives you current, up to the minute results, but it gives them to you on your own time, at your convenience. 

You can identify your favorite properties, leave a note for your agent and schedule a showing - all with a few clicks of your mouse. 

If you change your mind and want to change your search parameters, it's easy to do...you can adjust your criteria at any time, without waiting for your agent to do it for you.

You can be notified immediately of prices increases, sold properties or pending contracts...in other words, you will be searching much like an agent searches.

This is not your father's search engine!  This is LISTINGBOOK

Click on the yellow button to your right to get your own, absolutely free, absolutely-no-pesky-salesperson-will- call LISTINGBOOK  account and start searching for your Alexandria home!

I LOVE Listingbook. Congrats to all the MLS Boards who 'get it' and offer this service to their Realtors. I use this for one of our clients and it really helps keep sellers in the loop as far as activity goes and who is looking at their property.

People keep singing the praises of Listing Book.  I wish I could get it here.  It's not available for my MLS.  I have a couple of clients who would really enjoy it.  Other seem to prefer me to do the searching.

Susan, I must be missing something.  You wrote above, "Click on the yellow button to your right to get your own" but I'm not seeing anyplace to click on.

Tni:  It is a great service for those who are more DIY types...but there is nothing like the excitement of finding just the right house for someone who hasn't already spied it online!

Eric:  Drats...I was hoping no one would notice.  LOL When I wrote this blog back in July, there WAS, indeed, a yellow button and somehow through the various configurations of my signature block, it got pushed off and I, well, I didn't realize it.  Now, I just need to figure out how to get it back!  Thanks for noticing.

They can, but there is much more detail on Listingbook than on IDX. They can also leave notes for their agent and schedule appts directly through Listingbook.  Between the IDX on my site and Listingbook, my clients strongly prefer Listingbook.

Susan, I started using listingbook earlier this year and like it a lot. There are many idx search options, but LB is one of the best in terms of info, layout and price (for us agents :))

Did you take any of their webinars?

I very much like that you are bringing attention to Listingbook. Thank you for your insights.  I think that the more solid info we can get into the hands of consumers, the better for everyone. Thank goodness buyers come to us knowing more about price, neighborhood comps, and all sorts of helpful facts - it makes everything smoother.

I love Listingbook.  My clients enjoy searching for properties.  One client mentioned that Listingbook was educating him.  He gets updates every morning and he can see the adjustments in the price.  He and his wife are future buyers.  I can't believe I have a client who has logged in to Listingbook over 300 times.  It's a great tool for my clients and me.

Anna:  I agree!  I have not taken any of their webinars yet, but it's on my list!

Ellie:  Exactly...and Listingbook gives them more "real time" info.

Joanne:  It's a wonderful educational tool, to be sure.

I think I am going to give Listingbook a try.  I am beginning to hear good things about it.  Have they worked out all the bugs?

This sounds like a great selling tool. I will do some digging and see if this or something like it is available in the Dallas area.
