We recently hired an independent market research company to interview 10 random people who have bought or sold a home worth at least $300,000 in the past 12 months, and ask them a series of questions over the course of an hour.

When asked to describe the best real estate websites they have seen, guess what they said?

One of the most powerful ways you can show off your team is through agent profiles and, if applicable, office profiles. This section of the site allows Realtors to give a strong first impression, reinforce their credibility, and share a little bit about themselves.

Yet, there comes a time for every real estate agent when they need to step away from the generic offerings, venture out into the digital world, and create a website of their very own. In this post, we're going to talk about the few telltale signs that it's time for your own real estate website.

What was the vision behind Vision?

PP: The team's initial thoughts were around showcasing VR and we were really excited about it. I really wanted to simplify a lot of things, so I brought that in. We don't need so much complexity in a website all the time, and we got to spend a lot of time refining the design and making it more flexible.

If you're in the real estate space, you've likely heard the term "IDX". And if you're on this blog right now, you probably even know about "IDX websites". But do you really understand what IDX is, or what it means for your site?

In this blog post, we're going to talk about what IDX is, why it exists, and how we use it to make awesome real estate websites.

Let's get started!

IDX is the abbreviated form of "Internet Data Exchange", and it's basically a set of rules and data feeds that enable Realtors to share MLS data on their website.
