JACKSONVILLE, Fla., May 17, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- HomeASAP LLC, the leading provider of online marketing solutions for real estate professionals, announced today that it has extended its reach to 161 Multiple Listing Services that have approved the company's IDX Home Search. This total includes 84 of the nation's 100 largest MLSs and represents over 1 million agents and approximately 1.7 million active for sale and rent listings. Based upon generally-accepted industry estimates, IDX Home Search would cover approximately 91% of all active listings across the country.
"We're pleased to move ever closer to our goal of providing 100% MLS coverage for agents seeking to use IDX Home Search to reach consumers," said Jeffery Gellman, Director of MLS Services for HomeASAP. "While we currently support the vast majority of the nation's largest markets, we continue to work to bring even more into the fold."
HomeASAP's solution, IDX Home Search powered by Homeasap™, provides a powerful, user-friendly search that has won praise from agents, consumers and industry trade experts for its feature-rich, user-friendly appeal. In internal side-by-side testing, consumers preferred HomeASAP's search platform 80% of the time over a well-known national home search portal.
Each IDX Home Search website is individually branded to the agent. Consumers are presented with displays of active listings pulled automatically from MLS without the clutter of advertising. The mobile-friendly (responsive) websites work seamlessly on Facebook Business Pages and is tightly integrated with this popular social media platform. State-of-the-art map search technology allows users to search for homes in multiple ways, including click-and-drag to pinpoint preferred search areas. Extensive home, neighborhood, school and other relevant data are also presented.
Lead capture is built-in, and agents also have the option of joining Search Alliance – the company's innovative new national agent co-op network – to take advantage of additional lead generation marketing options. "We pioneered IDX Home Search on Facebook and have continued to innovate in an effort to provide agents everything they need to take control back from portals like Zillow and Trulia," said Gellman. "We believe our new home search provides a superior experience to any other currently available, including the major national portals. Our goal is to empower individual agents with the best solution to display the most up-to-date MLS IDX listings to their prospective clients."
