US cloud based real estate software vendor planetRE has released a new 'Lifestyle Consumer Search Portal' solution for agents and brokers allowing a variety of search options including commute time, affordability, noise level and schools.
The new technology provides rapid search conversion and relevance combined with powerful data mining and visualization which utilises lifestyle based search options concurrently with live MLS IDX data.
planetRE CEO Subrao Shenoy says this provides a one pass, time saving and relevant search for the consumer rather than frustrating trips back and forth with only a mundane bedroom/bath search for them to go on.
"The rich visualization can display school maponics, commute time polygon intersections for multiple buyers that can even be used for future property alerts," Shenoy says.
"Any search result changes due to price, school or commute time can be instantly visualized providing several 'what if' scenarios for local and relocating buyers."
Property detail pages show enhanced information and graphs aggregated from national sources for schools, demographics, noise, utility costs, commute time and other lifestyle variables of importance to the user.
Meanwhile an integrated back end Content Management System allows companies to add their own multimedia contents on any search pages with full SEO management.
The net result, Shenoy says is a rich branded portal allowing agents and brokers to compete with any national brand and be self reliant with leads. An integrated CRM allows lead management along with many lead behavior alerts.
"Consumers often swim in an ocean of irrelevant results," he adds.
"The key is relevance. The new search portal takes all the clutter out and enables relevant results at first pass. This is a huge value, time saver for consumer and a differentiator for lead conversion for agents and brokers."
