Development

Myrsol now supports property emails as well as property RSS feeds for your clients save searches. Though we have had RSS feeds for a very long time we have been asked by our clients to also provide an email system for properties to their clients.

You will also have the ability to modify the email templates that are going out to your clients. We are not stopping there, there is more coming soon.

Increase Your Web Traffic

Development

We have been so busy working on new features and moving MYRSOL into new areas that we have not had the time to post but today I was asked by one of our Designers to read a post she had written based on some stats from a site she just recently moved from one of our competitors platforms.

Agents are always asking me what does MYRSOL offer that makes them stand out from the other Real Estate Websites. Well in a word "Traffic". I could spend hours writing up the perfect blog for you  to read but I believe the proof is in the reality of a clients site and how well their site performs after moving from one of our competitors platforms to ours.

If you have a moment take a look at this post and...

Web Developers, Now Hear This!

General

Are you a web developer? Are you looking for a good platform for your Real Estate clients that has integrated IDX?

MYRSOL has opened our doors to 3rd party developers without the MYRSOL branding. Yes that is right. If you are a developer you can now use our platform for your client and remove our front end branding. You work with your clients and we handle the platform and IDX for you. We will also supply customer support for your clients as it pertains to the platform or IDX if you wish at no extra charge. You have full control over the sites layout/design as well as SEO and content. We are simply behind the scenes growing our Real Estate Platform. The best part is all our new features ...

Well Other Vendor's Do it; Simpler RETS Feeds Save Realtors Money!

Development

I have been working on Data feeds for more than 8 years and I am just horrified at how many MLS's have no clue how to even pull their own RETS feeds. We have been dealing with a number of MLS where they have decided to move to another RETS provider because they are cheaper or because the board made the decision not realizing the impact on their agents and their vendors.

To me the answer, that we get when having issues with some RETS providers,  that other Vendor's do it is not a response because they have no clue how many hoops other vendor's have had to go through to change feeds. I would like to see MLS's pull a full feed (in house) and then a partial feed from their RETS provider and ...

Google Analytics Key word (Not Provided)

Real Estate Search Engine Optimization

A number of our clients have recently been asking why there is a new keyword in their Google Analytics called "Not Provided". Well simply put Google is now Encrypting searches performed by those clients of theirs who are logged into Google.  Google Estimates that the percentage of these users should be in the lower single-digit but that will depend on your sites traffic. You can read more about this by clicking here. I am all for Google making changes,  I just hope they keep the little guys in their light of sight as well.

Agents, Know What You Are Buying!

Development

I want to thank Suzanne Stephens for sending us this blog post. With her permission we have posted this on our site because we believe it is very important that agents understand what they are getting when they simply frame in their property search. Enjoy

Executive Director, Myrsol LLC

Do you know the difference between iframed (aka framed) IDX search pages and fully integrated IDX listings, and why integrated listings can help with your search engine optimization? Here's are some graphics that may help explain the difference.

NAR Midyear 2010 - At First Glance

General

What a week, I must hand it to everyone in the District of DC. Your average 8 hour work day along with the 3 or 4 hour commute to work each day can really make for a very long week.

We were very excited to attend the NAR Midyear 2010. We met with a number of agents looking for a complete solution. At first glance agents would walk up to our booth and say “Another Web Company”, This is expected from agents who’s prior web companies have left such a bad taste in their mouth. The good thing about being a part of Myrsol is you get a chance to show agents just how good a web company can be and back it with the testimonials from other agents. Nothing speaks better than a referral as every a...

2010 Myrtle Beach Trade-Expo Was A Hit!

Development

Wow! Let us first thank all our clients who took time out of their busy schedules to not only come out to see us but also take time at the show to share their love for MYRSOL with other agents. Our hat is off to all of you for being there as well as Heather, Roger and all the others at the Coastal Carolina Association of Realtors for such a great show and being so well organized.

I must say this being MYRSOL’s first trades show we were shocked at the number of agents who approached us looking for a better IDX solution. It was a pleasant surprise to see so many eager agents wanting to know what we do and how we could help their business.

For all our clients outside of the South Carolina ...

An Early Christmas For Myrsol’s Customers

Development

Merry Christmas From Myrsol

An Early Christmas For Myrsol’s Customers.
Release Date By After Midnight December 23, 2009

Myrsol Real Estate CMS [Update to 2.0]
This is by far the biggest update we have ever done. I think we underestimated the time it would take to pass “quality assurance”. Yes, I’m a perfectionist when it comes to code, and I wanted to make sure everything was just “right” before we rolled this out. I didn’t want to roll it out early, but I definitely don’t want you all to continue to wait for all this great stuff.
There is once again a ton of stuff that will help improve SEO such as more control over page titles, and meta data.
Below is a list of the majority of the additions and updates...

Growing Faster Than The Weeds In Our Yard

Development

It’s been a number of months since my last post due to the fact that we have been putting a lot of focus on expanding. We never imagined that Myrsol would have grown so fast and in so many areas the first year but here I am telling you that Myrsol is now in more than 20 MLS Boards in more than 10 States. As most of you know we made our product public December 15, 2008 even though we had been working on the product for two years prior to our launch date. In less than a year we have exceeded our expectations every month and continue to grow even today in a trying economy. We can tell you that the economy of America is not failing but picking up momentum. Clients, in this new economy, are no...

REALTORS® Eyes Wide Open

General

During the past few months I have had a number of REALTORS® tell me I should write to everyone and inform them of my beliefs when it comes to their website. This being such a passionate topic for me I found myself writing countless pages and finally making myself stop in order to post a reasonable size blog rather than a novel. I am sure this post is far overdue, but late or not it is a vital read for any REALTOR® who wishes to understand the importance of his/her website.

“My website is a small part of my business.” I hear this all the time and I can tell you that your website is not a small part of your business in any way, but rather a vital part of your business. I would even go as...

Is your product available in my area?

Development

As long as your association of realtors has some form of IDX, RETS or HTML feed yes we can and there is no extra cost to you for us to setup a new area. Just about every association of realtors has their own feed along with their own set of rules. Myrsol was built with this in mind and we are able to setup most feeds within a few days. Let’s review the process to get a data feed setup and working.

If you have had a website before I am sure the acronym RETS (Real Estate Transaction Standard) is something you are familiar with. The keyword here is standard and though it sounds nice this standard is far from a standard when it comes to venders. Each and every Association has the right to se...

What Web Solution Is Right For Me?

Development

As a realtor you are commonly faced with the decision of what is the right web solution? Though there are a number of providers there are only a select few methods. Some Associations even have a website and or frame solution that they will provide to their agents for a very small fee compared to most venders. But do these solutions really help you get the traffic and Quality Leads you are looking for and a solution you can grow your business with? In order to answer these questions lets first understand what a framed solution is.

When it comes to framed solutions for most agents it seems like a very good fit. You have low upfront cost and very low monthly cost to boot. But with framed ...

MLS Data Feed Questions

Development

As with any Complete IDX Solution there are MLS data feeds for each and every Association of Realtors and when property data is involved the inevitable questions is always asked. How often do you update your feed? Will changes to the feed cost more?

When it comes to MLS data feeds we work very hard to make sure your property data is updated daily. For the majority of Associations this is not a problem at all but there is always maintenance with each and every MLS data feed and we have to keep a close eye on each and every one of them. For the Association of Realtors that we are not able to update daily we will inform our clients of the frequency of updates allowed by the Association of ...

Qualified VS Non-Qualified Leads

Before I kick off this topic let me first introduce myself. My name is Mark Fitzgerald aka “Fitz”.
