Windsor bargain homes slide show widget

By
Real Estate Agent with Healdsburg Sotheby's International Realty
I have been working with RealBird to see what their newest technology will let me do. This is a slideshow widget that provides the results of a search I did for all homes from $300K to $400K in Windsor California.
If you mouse-over any of the images that appear you'll get a text description of the property. Clicking on the photo takes you to my site where you can get additional information. Slideshows like this in different sizes can be embedded on your blog or website.

Katy,

It's hard to separate which specific Internet tool generates leads, but this is a very useful way to display properties. I'm very  happy with it.

Dave, this is a great tool.  But I'm wondering what the MLS rules are about showing these properties without consent of the Realtor.  It seems like we Relators are at a disadvantage to many of the big real estate sites that are able to pull listings and show them to the general public.  But us Realtors are required to have users login to show properties from other Realtors.

Bo, that's a great question. I don't know if you noticed, but when you mouse over the image you get a text box that provides more detail about the listing. Included in that information is the listing office. If you click on the graphic you will get to my search page. All the listed properties that show up also have the listing agent information when you click through to get the details.

The other important piece of this is that the brokers for all of the listed properties have already agreed that they wanted their properties to be listed on the internet. That's one of the standard check boxes for our MLS and I'm sure most others around the country have something similar. From my broker's side, he had to agree to share our listings in the same fair-to-everybody way in order to sign up for the IDX data feed that helps power our site.

It has been a long answer, but I wanted to make it clear that we are complying with the rules of our local MLS.

Below is the embed code to install the widget on a web page. I think signing up with RealBird for your own account is the best way for you to get access to their tools. They provide some of the most powerful tools and lead generation for my sites.
