IDX. Internet Data Exchange. For those not actively involved in real estate, that means (pretty much) “showing homes for sale on a broker website.”
Now, I recommend searching for homes in Charlottesville at the Nest Realty site. I could be convinced to keep the search here on this blog if enough folks ask.
Years ago, having a “search for homes” feature on a site was a differentiator. I found what I believed (and still believe) to be the best out there, Diverse Solutions, and installed it here. That was in November 2008.
A lot’s changed since 2008: Zillow to name one (they bought Diverse Solutions) and we started Nest Realty and we’ve won awards for our home search features (and we’re just getting better!)
Short story: having “search for homes” here is no longer that useful. Or cool. Or, from my perspective, profitable. I know I’ve broken links here, and I know there are unintended consequences. Such is life.
