Twiddy Realty Home Search

Prominent Search Access

Back to top    1
 
What do visitors to a realty site want to do first? Search for homes of course!

The search button is placed in full view and invites the user to get started with their home search.

Current Listing Count

Back to top    2
 
The current listing count is automatically updated daily from the MLS. This lets the visitor know up front that they are accessing the entire MLS and that it is up to date.

Full Featured Search

Back to top    3
 
Any search is only as good as the criteria available. Here the user can choose from a multitude of options. There is even a zone map available that automatically sets the zone criteria from a click on the map. Last searches can be recalled instantly - great for tweaking your search criteria without having to start from scratch.

Pre-Sorted Results

Back to top    4
 
All search results are automatically pre-sorted to show the realtor's listings first. No listings are excluded but as long as there is at least one listing that belongs to the site owner, then that listing will be first.

Save Search/Email Notification

Back to top    5
 
Logged in users will receive e-mail notification of new properties that match their saved searches. This means they have a regular incentive to return to the website!

Google™ Style Navigator

Back to top    6
 
Easy to use search results navigation similar to that used at Google™.

Save Listings

Back to top    7
 
Any listing or search can be saved for later retrieval. Saved searches automatically email the user when a new listing is added that matches their search criteria! Users can also select specific listings from any set of results or group of saved listings and build comparison charts.

Contact Your Agent...Always

Back to top    8
 
Anytime a user clicks on the prominent “Showing” link an email is sent to the client - regardless of whether it is their listing or not! This means more co-brokered income.

Compare Listings

Back to top    9
 
By selecting specific listings and clicking on the “Compare Now” link, a comparison chart can be automatically built. This allows multiple listings to be viewed in a side-by-side vertical format for easy comparison. Specific listings can then be saved directly to a users private area for later retrieval or future comparison.

Demographic Details

Ever wonder why it takes so long for a search results page to load when all the pictures are so tiny? That's because they are not real thumbnail images! Our solution is to automatically create “real” thumbnail images daily from the original large images stored in the MLS. This creates a much faster loading search results page for your visitor and that equals a happier user!
