Demographics For IDX listings have arrived at Real Estate Webmasters

Morgan Carey posted this 246 26,924 Views

So what do you get? (so far, that is!) Neighborhood information for all listings! From any listings details page there will be a neighborhood information tab that when clicked provides detailed statistics and other demographic information about the area directly surrounding the listing in question. The "neighborhood information" tab details community characteristics, population statistics, financial statistics (average household net worth, median income etc), crime rates, weather & cl...

Morgan Carey posted this 8 4,813 Views

For those of you attending the Inman Connect SF 2009 conference or just like reading about Real Estate Webmaster antics here is some news for you. We (technically myself, Michael and Phil) have entered the Inman Connect Create Hackathon (or developers challenge) down in San Fransisco the first week of August. What is the Connect Create? It's a contest where small groups of developers compete (on site) to develop their most creative / useful / killer real estate related app. You can pla...

No Bing Ads for REW - Microsoft loses our business

Morgan Carey posted this 4 3,173 Views

You know, I really thought it would be interesting to test out microsofts ad center what with all the hype surrounding the BING search engine - but woulnd't you know it - I can't get the damned interface to work. Now I might not be a certified genious, but I gotta tell ya, I certainly am not an idiot either. I have sat here for 20 mins trying to get the Microsoft Adcenter to accept my corporate credit card (and yes I know my address, and YES I CHECKED THE NUMBER) It's no wonder Microsoft...

FMLS Image Theft Notice - ListingWare Scraping Images from REW Servers

Morgan Carey posted this 9 4,438 Views

We have had several calls today from FMLS (Atlanta) subscribers complaining that their IDX through a company called "listingware" is showing an "image theft alert" image instead of the FMLS pictures. First off all let me say that Real Estate Webmasters has absolutely nothing to do with Listing Ware, they are for all intents and purposes a competitor. Next let me say that Real Estate Webmasters did NOT put those images up on your IDX or your website. We do not have acc...

REW promo - Selling out the new guys

Morgan Carey posted this 99 4,333 Views

This promotion is now closed!!! We have 4 new programmers for this summer (all of which completed their practicum through VIU with us in the spring) and  they are chomping at the bit to challenge themselves on the REW production line. So I figure the easiest way to keep the new kids busy is to run a promo! So here's the deal - IF you are willing to have us hand your project over to one of the new guys (they will naturally take longer to get it done than a seasoned programmer) and if...

An appeal to MIBOR - Indianapolis board of Realtors

Morgan Carey posted this 5 8,835 Views

I just posted this as a comment on the NAR blog, but I thought that it probably deserved it's own post as it really should be directed at MIBOR and not NAR - basically we all know the change to the IDX verbiage will be passed it's just a matter of due dilligence (can't blame NAR for that I suppose) but it's also going to take time - all the while, we are stuck without indexable pages until this ruling passes (we being Paula Henry / Mike Taylor of http://www.reddoorindy.com and myself - yes, ...

Cliff Niersbach NAR response to Google spidering listings in Mibor

Morgan Carey posted this 67 17,571 Views

Many of you read over at Agent Genius about how MIBOR (The local board of Realtors in Indianapolis) has demanded that all IDX vendors stop Google and other search engines from spidering any page of a Realtors website that has IDX listings or any part of the data referencing listings (such as property descriptions, MLS #'s or addresses) - this is with the exception of just the agents own listings of course. Naturally as one of the largest custom IDX vendor in the world we are more than conc...

New REW Lead Management Module - Calendars, action plans and more!

Morgan Carey posted this 24 4,855 Views

Ok I have been planning on introducing some of the new features of our soon to be released system for a while but being the perfectionist that I tend to be sometimes, I didn't want to start showing it off to much until it was nearly complete - I think that time has come as next week I will be finilizing my list of beta testers for this app - with final production release due July 31st corresponding with the second day of the REW Summit. So let's get right to it - what does this bad boy loo...
