NEW CIR Realty websites now available
Welcome CIR Realty Agents. As many of you now know, I have been working with Linsey Smith to put together a package for you that combines the Real Estate Webmasters awesome backend / IDX (MLS search) features with an affordable yet search engine friendly front end (website design) that will allow every agent to be able to compete in the web 2.0 landscape.
Enter the CIR Realty websites:
For CIR Realtors ONLY - you can view the new CIR websites at http://cir.rewidx.com. When you get there, you will notice a black bar across the top (this is not part of the site) it has a dropdown to select your CIR template choice and also has a button called "add-ons" and one for "order"
Here's how it works - I suggest you first select a template:
- CIR Classic
- CIR Alt (puts quick search in a different place)
- CIR Alt Grey (greyscale color scheme + alt quick search)
After you select your template option - click the "add-ons" button - here you will see little toggles for each item (descriptions provided below along with pricing) - go ahead and set them all to "on" and then scroll to the bottom of that page and hit "submit" to save the settings (*NOTE - your settings will not be saved unless you hit submit). After you hit submit - click the CIR Logo or the home button top left of the site to see your changes take effect. Right away you will see the quick search and featured listings appear on the main page (if you have turned them on) - go ahead and click on a listing or use the quick search to see many of the other features live on the demo.
Pricing (Again this is CIR agents only)
Normally a template is $740 USD setup + $599.40 USD per year hosting and a high end built in IDX like this is a minimum $2500 USD setup and $360 USD per year. So your retail year one cost is typically (without any of the addon's below) $4199.40 USD and every year after costs you $959.40 USD << This is what other people pay on a daily basis through our retail structure (and it's well worth the $) - but because of CIR's significant buying power and their willingness to step up to the plate and help promote these products in the interest of helping their agents promote themselves online - I have decided to make the basic website, hosting, complete backend (including content management, and lead management) IDX and email only $360 USD per year per CIR agent.
That's right - a ($4200 website + $1000/year) value for only $360 USD per year.
I have created this handy order form to make it easy for you to place your order. You can find it at http://cir.rewidx.com/order.php but before you go there - make sure you check out all the features listed below and make a list of the ones you would like.
If you have questions regarding this exclusive CIR promotion - I would ask that you ask them directly below this post in the comments section as many folks will have the same questions, and by asking them here, I am able to answer them for everyone. Thank you and welcome to Real Estate Webmasters - Enjoy your new site.

Add ons with residual costs
Add ons with residual cost are those items that have both an install fee as well as a residual cost associated with the product. The reason for the residual cost is for 1 of 2 reasons - they require constant and considerable support, or, (such as in the case of Google Maps) we actually pay a license (usage) fee to access their corporate API.
Enable the mapping of search results, individual map this property tab and other custom Google mapping features. Retail (part of a $2500 setup and $360 per year fee) CIR price $240 USD per year.
Snippets are one of the best features Real Estate Webmasters MLS technology offers - they allow you to query MLS listings directly into your content pages - making them far more sticky and increasing a page's conversion dramatically. They are also the feature that allow search engines such as Google to index your most important listings - they are a must-have. Retail (part of a $2500 setup and $360 per year fee) CIR price $500 USD setup - $120 USD per year.
