Realtors: A quick tip. If you send out a message from your email to your entire MLS / Association database of agents and many people mark your message as spam (i.e. you send a property flyer that they didn't request), it's likely your clients will not receive your message. They will probably go into their spam folder. Also if you're sending bulk please make sure to follow the CANSPAM laws.
It's unfortunate that even though I spend upwards of 10 hours a week helping people in this group, and that I often mention and recommend other products, and that we work our rear ends off to provide the best services possible - that other vendors would flat out lie to our clients knowing full well their statements were a lie. #unscrupulous
There will almost certainly be a Google maps coming, but the new iOS maps does a pretty good job with Flyover maps in 3d. There are quite nice if you haven't seen them. Plus remember you can download Google Earth too...
Lee Stiber We just launched a brand new competitor to those guys. It's about 1/5th the price and does the exact same things! More importantly- our ad program is based around generating leads instead of spending your budget. We had one client get 11 leads with a $48 ad spend! Here's a link but if you're interested in taking a look just fill out a form and someone can give you a demo: http://www.tribusgroup.com/real-estate-lead-generation/
Kendyl, if I was to build a real estate site for myself you can bet it would have search on it. However, I also think there are times when you can get away without it. The IDX product we created when I was at M Realty had a WAY better search feature built into the backend of the platform that sent out notifications the minute something matching your search hit the MLS (or hourly, daily, weekly, etc depending on your set preference). I could see creating a very niche site that had superior neighborhood content setup as a lead capture site (as in "contact me and I'll setup the best listing notification system you've ever seen for you")... But, that sounds like a lot of work, so I doubt many people would go that far.
