Eugene, Oregon (PressExposure) November 17, 2009 -- Diane Shafer of Shafer Real Estate has chosen to integrate the highly customizable IDX Broker software into her real estate website, developing a sense of ease and efficiently for consumers executing their property search online. Residing in Rio Vista, California, Shafer is a member of the Bay Area Real Estate Information Services MLS (BAREIS). With the innovative IDX software's relationship to and association with MLS systems, it is able to take raw listing data details from the BAREIS, and display the information on Shafer's website to be viewed as a seamless integration. Home seekers can create the most personalized and custom online property search on the web, and all without ever being redirected from Shafer's site.
Consumers have the option of saving their specified search preferences and receiving automatic email alerts the moment a property matching their specifications arrives on BAREIS. Shafer can view her website visitors saved search criteria, via an administrative login page, aiding her in developing a much more personalized relationship with each individual client, which if often lost when implementing a property search online. Here, not only can she control every aspect of her online real estate business, including the look, layout, design and search options available, but she can preform all of these functions through the comfort of her own personal computer.
Distinct and original search options provide clients with an abundant amount of resources to help execute their online real estate search in the most smooth, time efficient and user-friendly way possible. Home seekers can literally search every aspect and detail of a home, from small to big, aiding in narrowing their search results, in efforts to find a home that meets their every want, need and desire. One of the more unique of the search functions, the map search, powered by Google Maps, allows consumers to pinpoint their chosen property on an interactive satellite, terrain or road map. They may then use this information to judge their relativity to nearby main roads, landmarks, school districts, convenience locations and other cities, to justify if this is truly a space they could envision themselves living in, and relating to, as "home".
