Every real estate agent knows they need IDX to display MLS listings on their web site, but finding the right IDX service can be a nightmare. With over a decade of experience driving our products, Diverse Solutions knows what home buyers are looking for in a property search, and we’ve combined these features in our flagship mapping IDX product: dsSearchAgent.
Here are ten ways our IDX stands head and shoulders above our competition:
1 Uses a simple Google Maps interface
Today’s home buyers are web savvy. They use online mapping to find new restaurants, get driving directions and more. Our IDX combines these same map features to create a property search that’s familiar to home buyers. Buyers can move, zoom in and out, or even create outlines on the map to see the latest homes for sale in their area.
2 One-click searching
Sometimes you know exactly what kinds of homes your visitors are going to be looking for. Maybe they generally want either condos near the water or they want single family homes in one of the suburbs. With our easy to setup custom search tool, you can build unlimited one-click search pages that give buyers instant access to homes you’ve pre-filtered.
3 Great lead conversion
Your website is only as good as the leads it produces, so lead conversion is an integral part our IDX admin area. With Diverse Solutions you can limit the number of properties a buyer can view or how many searches they can perform before they need to register and provide their name and email. You can even hide a listing’s price history, lot size or other fields and we’ll encourage users to register in order to view the missing information.
4 Fast home browsing
Buyers coming to your site want to see homes right away, so we’ve integrated lots of little improvements to make searching faster and smoother that you simply won’t find elsewhere. Instant results show homes on the map right away, users can scroll through hundreds of listings at a time without reloading the page, and big NEXT and PREVIOUS buttons at the top of each listing let users quickly browse through one home after another.
5 Review all buyer activity
Buyers can save any of their searches, tag their favorites and even add notes to listings – and all of this information is tracked for you to review. We’ll keep a list of all the properties a buyer has browsed and which are their favorites, show you which one-click search links they viewed, and even provide listing suggestions you can discuss with each of your leads.
6 IDX widgets you can display anywhere
Call them widgets, gadgets or modules, these miniature web apps let you display small, interactive MLS searches just about anywhere. With a simple copy and paste, you can add a small map search, property slideshow, home search form or countless other IDX widgets with up-to-the-minute MLS data to any page of your website or blog.
7 Advanced property filters
All sites offer basic search filters like number of beds or baths, but our IDX includes exclusive advanced filters to make your site stand out to buyers. Buyers can search for homes based on price history to find the latest price drops, they can filter for homes in foreclosure or short sale, or even view just the listings with an upcoming open house.
8 Customized sign up process
Not only can you decide when your users need to register, you have full control over their registration process. You can add and remove fields from the registration form your buyers will see when they sign up, and even choose which fields are required.
9 Complete CRM included
For a limited time, we are including our full CRM with all new IDX accounts. Now you can organize and manage all your website and IDX leads in a single place. Record calls, schedule meetings, create drip email campaigns, track form submissions and more all in one web app.
10 Fully customized to match your needs
We’ve made it easy to customize your IDX to match your website and your market. Not only can you customize the design and branding so your search pages blend in with your website, but you can also alter the map locations, add and remove search filters and even disable property types to fully tailor your buyer’s search experience.
