We’ll get back to the year in review later but I wanted to get this news out first.
One of the things I love about Diverse Solutions, the company responsible for the software that powers the home search on this and my other half-dozen sites, is they’re about the most responsive group of tech-geeks (said lovingly) that I’ve ever seen. Make a suggestion and they’re almost certain to get to work figuring out how to make it happen.
Of course, that also can be a small challenge when the upgrade everyone seems to request is the same thing I’ve already been doing on my bank owned site for the past year – taking the Phoenix real estate listings as they happen and making them WordPress friendly (good for you) and indexable by Google (good for us.)
In short, everyone now can do what I’ve already been doing technologically which would concern me if I wasn’t finding myself viewing the technology more as a means to an end rather than the core of the business.
Stop me before I subreference again.
In any event, I built a new website this morning for the Phoenix real estate listings that is nothing but listings – streaming listings, listings by city and, soon, listings by subdivision. And, best of all, there’s little of the guesswork you run into on the listings aggregation sites, wondering if what you see’s really there.
One last twist, assuming the setup went okay. If you want to follow this listings stream on Twitter, you can. Simply follow my listings account at https://twitter.com/allphxre.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you don’t want listings don’t follow. That’s all I’m going to use that account for.
Got questions or suggestions? Let me know.
