Your real estate website can generate leads if it possesses powerful features such a RETS IDX feed. An IDX based site lets you leverage all the MLS listings right on our site, as if those listings were your own. This is the key to MLS value proposition to Realtors – all those home and condo listings. That’s your IDX data feed.
You can grow visits from Google and increase conversion rates through RETS IDX-based MLS Listing power. The power of your MLS is at your fingertips if you choose to use it.
Your current FTP-IDX website likely does nothing for you or your visitors. It’s inadequate in this era. High quality IDX websites for realtors don’t have those problems. Depending on your level of investment and which Digital Marketing Program you choose, you can have either a custom or semi-custom realtor mobile-friendly website complete with searchable, interactive MLS home listings, and you can add your own brokerage’s listings too.
But first, go to Google and type in site:http://yoursite.com * (replace yoursite.com with your own domain) to see how many pages you have indexed in Google. Not many? Okay, that’s a big problem, and this is the solution.
Google Listings are Essential for SEO success and, visitors want to see real homes for sale and to contact you right away
The key benefit with RETS based MLS listings is Visibility in Google searches. Most realtors have a poor, Google-killing FTP IDX solution which is slow, redundant and makes your site look like spam. With RETS however, you’ll have a Google high performer. The most I’ve ever seen on one realtor site is 9 million pages indexed. I’m sure there is a realtor with more somewhere. You’ll certainly have thousands or tens of thousands of listings, and that’s plenty to give you a lot more traffic from Google.
Not all providers offer RETS IDX MLS Listings platforms. If you’re looking for something budget friendly with preferred features (such as low cost) you may have to use FTP IDX. It’s not the end of the world, because with this technique, an experienced real estate SEO Specialist can still help you leverage the MLS data. And the end value of that is enormous — the bargain of the century.
