The IDX Broker Scam - Money Wasted By Realtors
Recently helped a Realtor work on a website. Wanted to rank it for them, and they wanted to implement the IDX feed into the website. This IDX feed is basically a feed from the MLS so visitors can search homes on their website. The fees range from $39/mo and go up from there. Even thousands from companies like Real Estate Webmasters - who never give you full control of your content. This is such a scam and money wasted every month. The reason is most people will never find your website and even if they do the search will suck. People would rather search on Realtor.com / Zillow.com or some website that spent hundred of thousands on it, and keeps it updated daily. Your plug in is a waste of money every month. If you were smart you would take that money and put it towards buying a great neighborhood domain. Manually put up the best listings, and blog about that neighborhood. Become the neighborhood expert. You will be on top of Google for those neighborhood searches. That could convert to listings and leads for people looking to move into that neighborhood. Dominate your small area. If you need help setting up these sites and SEO them let us know.
