REW IDX 3.0 has arrived - Testing the new MLS search from Real Estate Webmasters
I truly appreciate all the interest in the new REW IDX product and those offering to test and give feedback on the solution. This post will serve as a place for discussion surrounding the request and acquisition of an REW IDX testing account .
Don't know what I am talking about? REW IDX? Seriously!
Real Estate Webmasters is entering the low cost IDX space with our very first iframeable (low cost) IDX product for mass consumption - click the view the new REW IDX - it will start at $25 a month for a killer IDX search product that will work with any website (REW or non REW alike) and comes with full lead management (even in the lite version) and our exclusive "IDX builder" (video here) technology that places the customization of a Realtors IDX search offerings in the hands of the Realtor.
Some features that make this IDX cool!
Mutiple search options (Thumbnail, list view and map searching)
Thumbnails present a nice quick snapshot of many properties above the fold
List view provides a more traditional take on search results
Map view integrates with ammentities data and has polygon and radius searches
The aforementioned IDX builder
Haven't you always wanted to setup your IDX "your way" - choose from a ton of available search fields and types, re-organize your IDX search form, decide where your map should start, what view type your user should be confronted with and much much more - the power to control, test and improve your IDX search experience is now in your hands.
Integrated lead management (no extra charge)
REW CMS 2.5 lead management included standard with all REW IDX accounts.
Control your own widgets
Choose from a selection of popular REW IDX widgets - don't let us tell you what things "your visitors" will find helpful or interesting - we put the control in your hands. Want you users to be able to auto post IDX listings to their facebook account? You got it! Turn on social networking and it's a done deal. Don't find Birds Eye all that userful? Turn it off! It's up to you :)
First - how to apply / request a testing (IDX)
It's simple really - all you have to do is leave a comment below telling us who you are, what board / feed you're associated with and the domains you are interested in testing the solution on.
Second - how much does it cost? (Note free accounts now closed)
$499 setup, and either $25, $50 or $70 per month depending on
what options you pick,
Third - I posted a comment but my feed wasn't on the list, when can I get my account?
Real Estate Webmasters currently has over 150 active data feeds to process into this new system. We are actively adding feeds each week and doing so based on a system of priority that takes into account several factors. These factors are "ease of application process for agents", "demand in the area (at least 10 accounts need to be requested in a market order to bump it in the priority sequence), "per user cost" (if it costs us $ per user in order to offer IDX those feeds will be placed lower in the priority queue), "co-operation of board" (some boards are very easy to deal with, others are, well - not so easy) if your feed is not on the list yet, chances are we don't have at least 10 inquiries from that market - feel free (and we appreciate if you would) invite others to test the system from your MLS - we don't need 10 folks willing to purchase, just 10 folks will to test it for free.
