EUGENE, OR – May 14, 2012 – (RealEstateRama) — Southwestern Michigan MLS (SWMRIC) listings just became easier to search online, thanks to the IDX solution created by IDX, Inc. and supported by Realtor Michael Kooistra. With the unique approach Kooistra brings to the Indiana real estate market, it is no wonder he has chosen to employ such a revolutionary IDX solution. Thousands of SWMRIC listings now sync to Kooistra’s website automatically, letting his clients and other Grand Rapids, Michigan property seekers experience a comprehensive online search process. IDX Broker software has forever changed the way Kooistra conducts business online, by giving potential Indiana buyers an efficient online property search resource.
Internet Data Exchanges (IDX) solutions, such as the one Kooistra now employs, give home seekers and real estate investors the ability to narrow the SWMRIC listings on their terms. Five unique search functions, including the powerful IDX Advanced Search tool, allow potential buyers to create search parameters by which to find an ideal property by specifying the subdivision, scenery, flooring and schools they desire. After locating a property of interest, potential buyers can connect directly with sellers and listing agents to gather more information or schedule a showing, without ever leaving the convenient search page Kooistra hosts.
By accessing his personalized administrative login page, Kooistra can control the features and search capabilities that he wants to support. The IDX solution he employs allows him to connect with clients and pursue potential new client leads via a Lead Login widget or an IDX Custom Lead Signup Form. Kooistra doesn’t have to worry about SWMRIC listings being inaccurate, because his website reflects the most current listing data available, and his behind-the-scenes IDX Control Panel shows him SWMRIC market trends, price fluctuations and new properties as they become published. IDX Broker software has provided Kooistra with everything he needs to make his professional real estate website a successful and helpful online marketplace.
