IDX Broker just released their new Market Reports tool for all Platinum users this week. Take a look at the video at the bottom of the page to see it in action.
What are IDX Broker Market Reports?
Market Reports from IDX Broker provide information based on a city in your MLS area.
These reports show the numbers of active listings by property type for the city. There are also some nice graphs showing property information and demographic data for your area.
One of the things that you will love on these is that there is a "VIEW ALL ACTIVE LISTINGS" link that allows your visitors to go look at all of the properties available in the city.
There is also a nice "Signup" call to action that prompts your visitors to get an email alert when there are changes in the data on the Market Graph.
These emails are a great way for you to keep in touch with your clients and your prospects. The emailed data graph will keep you and your brand "top of mind" for your visitors.
How much do Market Reports cost?
IDX Broker Market Reports are FREE for all of their IDX Broker Platinum users.
If you are currently using IDX Broker Lite and you want to use or even try out Platinum and the Market Reports. Just contact us and we will be happy to switch your account to Platinum.
IDX Broker will pro-rate their $20 per month upgrade for you. So you only pay for the days that you use.

Will Market Reports work for my WIX, SquareSpace, Weebly, or WordPress site?
For our clients with WIX, SquareSpace, Weebly, GoDaddy builder, and WordPress, these Market Reports work great.
We have clients using our NEW PureIDX sites that are able to use Market Reports too.
Since they run on the IDX side of your website, you can keep them as long as you have your IDX Broker account. This makes them a great addition to your marketing arsenal.
