Eugene based IDX, Inc. today announced the addition of Sellstate Signature Advantage’s Tom Bates to its suite of real estate clients. Bates now uses IDX, Inc.’s primary application, IDX Broker, to display and completely integrate Multiple Listing Service (MLS) listings on his personal website. This allows him to retain leads generated from direct traffic, rather than losing out to the listing broker through the use of traditional framed MLS search tools.
The IDX Broker application provides agents, brokers and other real estate professionals with the tools needed to create a competitive advantage in a growing real estate market.
The objective in developing a website with an integrated IDX/MLS data feed is to generate new leads quickly at a low cost to the client. With automatic email announcements, custom client home views and advanced admin and integration controls, Bates’ clients now have access to the entire MLS database on his website. This gives his website an advantage over those that don’t integrate the MLS listings with the IDX search tools and gives his listings free advertising on other real estate websites that also display the MLS data.
Additional benefits of using IDX Broker include the ability to automatically create featured listing pages, check the status of new MLS listings and generate automatic emails 24/7.
