Eugene, Oregon (PressExposure) September 29, 2009 -- Stewart Van Anderson has chosen to employ IDX, Inc. to create an efficient and easy-to-use search functionality for his real estate website. This custom Internet Data Exchange (IDX) solution will not only create a simple property search navigation throughout Van Anderson's site, but home seekers will also be able to view an abundant amount of the most current and up-to-date property listings on the web, courtesy of IDX Broker's unique technology and the way it takes raw data from the Summit County MLS (SARMLS), and presents it to clients in a way that it will be viewed as a seamlessly integrated and easily searchable part of Van Anderson's site.
With the abundant amount of search categories available for potential home buyers to browse, they can narrow their results and save their search preferences, and in turn receive automatic email updates, coming directly from the SARMLS, the moment a property matching their specifications becomes available. Van Anderson has access to this information, via an administrative login page, helping to create a more personalized online real estate search experience for each individual consumer. It is here that he can not only edit his CSS and global wrappers, creating a unique branding throughout each page of his site, but he can also create dynamic title tags and custom XML and RSS codes, increasing his listings visibility, as well as their chances of being linked to popular real estate search engines, such as: Truila, Zillow and Google Base, to name a few.
Basic, advanced, map, address and listing ID search categories simply brush the surface of the endless amount of options home seekers have within their reach. One of the more unique of the search functionalities is the map search. Powered by Google Maps, the map search enables the potential home buyer to pinpoint their chosen property on and interactive road, satellite or terrain map. They may then use this map to judge their relativity to nearby convenience locations, school districts, landmarks, main roads and other cities, to distinguish if they could truly picture themselves in this specified neighborhood, and if this is a place they could envision calling "home".
