Phoenix Real Estate via RSS

avatarthumbnail.jpgHave you ever wished there were an easier way to view homes for sale in the Phoenix real estate market? Something even easier than clicking on a link sent via e-mail each day? Thanks to the folks at Diverse Solutions, there is.

All of the property searches on my neighborhood sites – Arrowhead Ranch, Westbrook Village, Ventana Lakes, Phoenix Retirement Real Estate – can be set up as RSS feeds into the reader of your choice.

(RSS stands for Real Simple Syndication and it allows you to follow multiple blogs and other feeds from one site. There are a number of free readers available; I use Google’s reader, free if you have a Google account.)

Here’s how the feed looks on Google Reader …

Phoenix real estate

Clicking on the address takes you to the full property page, scrolling down shows you the home’s basics along with the description written by the listing agent.

So if you’re one of those who enjoy looking at the “Just Listed” pages of the websites, this is going to be right up your alley.

In addition, if you search for properties through the Phoenix Home Search page, you can set up the results as an ever-updating RSS feed. This feature does require you to register with your name, e-mail and phone number – one of the few times I ask for such info, but I think it’s worth it.

Also, within the next day or two, I’ll be adding “just listed” searches for the various cities around Maricopa County. I’ve not yet decided how I’m going to present the information, but at a minimum that will make the RSS feeds available to those so interested.

These feeds unfortunately won’t replace the Client Gateway e-mails many of my clients receive, at least not for some, only because some of the searches go deeper into the listing details than I can go through an IDX feed. But for the rest, this is a quick and easy way to watch the Phoenix market from afar.

Happy hunting!

    Jonathan, how are you, I’m considering Diverse Solutions because I’m looking for a map based search for my website. Are you happy with them and can you customize their offering.

    btw, I was delighted to see your move into the big time domain name although I had to re register to post my comment.

    Just as well, Howard … you had your e-mail address entered incorrectly before so I kept getting returned e-mails.

    Absolutely loving Diverse Solutions … I probably want to do more with it than is reasonable, but there’s so much flexibility and so many possibilities it’s mind boggling.
