    Internet Data Exchanges – What are they and why are they better?

    So starts the question.  What is an IDX, internet data exchange and why would you want to use one?

    IDX systems correlate to Real Estate and the rendering of Listings that populate the Local Boards of Realtors, AKA:  Multiple Listing Service MLS.

    When you are searching for real estate that is for sale, you probably have heard of Homes.com, Realtor.com, Trulia.com, Redfin.com and others of the Large Real Estate Mega search websites.

    In fact, if you are not looking at the Google Local Business ads, you will see these mega sites populating the tops of the Search Engines.

    First, we agents can pay a fee to join those Real Estate Mega Sites and get leads, personal information from those of you searching.

    Second, most of those systems don’t have all of the listings.  Some are fed by the agent’s themselves.  Some don’t update as often as a Local IDX provider.  Some have only been built so they can earn the “owner” of the website the most money possible.

    I think I just covered more than “second”, I had three additional points in the above sentence.

    Bottom Line, Local Websites, advertising and utilizing the Internet Data Exchange are the strongest, most accurate and the most updated systems available for Real estate searches.

    Paris and Connor MacIvor

    Connor and Paris MacIvor are in the Top 1% of Realtors Nationwide, starting their real estate business in 1998 with RE/MAX Gateway - Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. Their becoming licensed real estate consultants and representatives came from the horrible experience they had when they bought their first home. There were many things that the agent they had hired did not explain and disclose, which per law he should have. Getting that agent on the phone after they closed escrow and after he had gotten paid was impossible. Paris and Connor called the broker, the board of realtors, the office manager and all they received was the promise of a phone call back. The remedy did come, but not as fast and in the way they wanted. That act - that bad agent was the reason why Paris and Connor became Realtors. That was all they needed to vow to never let the same fate befall anyone else, that befell them. Today Connor and Paris are focused on client service. Protection and top-shelf service with regard to their real estate clientele. They primarily work within the Santa Clarita Valley and Valencia CA. However, for a referral, where 80+ of their business is referrals they have License and Will Travel to other parts of Ventura County, Los Angeles County, and Orange County to handle real estate transactions for those who trust their real estate operation.
