GeekEstate reviews 15 IDX website solutions for brokers and agents

The ability to display property search results on a map is not “map search.” It’s the other way around — map search should give the user the ability to search by map, says GeekEstate’s Mike McGee.

“It seems like it should be obvious, but I’ve found that many websites and IDX providers claim to have a map search, when really they don’t,” McGee says in introducing a two-hour video that provides an overview of 15 Internet Data Exchange (IDX) products offered to agents and brokers by software developers.

McGee says he’s out to not only help agents and brokers learn about the strengths and weaknesses of each product, but hopes he’ll also inspire developers to improve their products.

“I think sometimes IDX developers are too close to their products to view them objectively,” he says. “I’m hoping some of these IDX vendors see some of their competitors’ innovations and realize they need to innovate as well!”
