Automatic IDX Broker Saved Searches

Real Estate Technology with

At RealtyCandy we have spent the last year working on making a suite of tools called IDX Addons.  These tools extend the functionality of IDX Broker.  Most of them are WordPress plugins.  Today I want to share with you a little about one of our newest tools:


Automatic IDX Broker Saved Searches for Leads

One of the complaints about IDX Broker that we heard from a lot of our clients is that a new lead would come to the real estate agents website and signup and never come back.  

The Problem

We started analizing hundreds of leads who had visited the website, gone through the lead funnel, gotten to the lead capture moment, and signed up in IDX Broker. They had provided a real email address and saved a property. 

The idea is that, if they save a property or contact a Realtor asking for more information or even a showing of a property, then they become a real lead. 

The problem our clients had with IDX Broker is that these folks would signup and then never get anymore updates, emails or information from the IDX Broker lead management system. 

The Solution

We have created an algorithm that will evaluate the properties your visitors have looked at in IDX Broker, and then within 24 hours of signing up, our "Automatic Saved Searches for Leads" tool will create a new saved search and your client will start getting emails from you showing them target properties. 

The Limitations

This is not a substitute for a caring real estate agent to sit down and call the lead and ask about what they are looking for and create a hand-crafted search that will closely meet their needs. 

This isn't even as good as you looking at what they were looking at, and making your own saved search for your client.  

But, it is better to have clients who are getting property updates from you.  We have seen broker clients who have leads who have been getting email updates from IDX Broker for years and the leads are logging in and checking on those properties within one business day from when they get the email.

Take a few minutes to go to and look at the IDX Broker Automatic Saved Search option on that page.  

We have a few free IDX Addons we provide to anybody who uses us as their IDX Broker developer partner.  So if you want to get IDX Broker on your website, visit us today.

I am currently using IDX Broker on my Word Press blog and this is great news. Is there something I need to do or is it automatic?

We can set this up for you at no charge.  Just shoot us an email at my email here on AR. 

It is not automatic for all IDX Broker users, but we set it up free for those who use us as their IDX developer. 

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hi James.  Sounds like a very neat tool.  I currently do this manually for many of my leads.

Manually is the best way.  

The tool we have is for those who don't want to miss anyone, but find it hard to find time to make the custom searches. 

We had a client who had a lead who was saving and looking at a bunch of mountain cabins in Colorado.  The agent never made a saved search and the person never got any updates from them. 

With our tool, we would have been sending them something. Some updates and new listings.  This helps keep that agent "top of mind".
