An Early Christmas For Myrsol’s Customers

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. But far...

More to Come!

Wed, Oct 28th 2009 12:00 pm by Mark Fitzgerald General

We have been so busy working on new features and adding new clients that we have not blogged as often as we wanted. We are growing stronger every day and have been working on a number of great features that will be coming out at the end of November to the first of December. For the past 2 quarters, we have been taking request from our agents as to what they would like to see in their website and we are working very hard to get as many of those request into the new version as possible. Soon we will be rolling out our much requested Ajax Registration, powerful lead management tools, custom listings module for Bank Owned; FSBO; Rentals, Google Maps 3.0, Updated subdivision/neighborhood modul...

Growing Faster Than The Weeds In Our Yard

Wed, Sep 23rd 2009 8:26 pm by Mark Fitzgerald 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 Dynamic IDX would have grown so fast and in so many areas the first year but here I am telling you that Dynamic IDX 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 eco...

REALTORS® Eyes Wide Open

Mon, Apr 13th 2009 10:25 am by Mark Fitzgerald 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 sized 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 a...

Is your product available in my area?

Wed, Mar 11th 2009 8:52 am by Mark Fitzgerald 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. Dynamic IDX 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 vendors. Each and every Association has the righ...

What Web Solution Is Right For Me?

Mon, Mar 2nd 2009 10:18 am by Mark Fitzgerald 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 vendors. But do these solutions really help you get the traffic and quality leads you are looking for? 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 solutions, you still have to purchase a web ...

MLS Data Feed Questions

Sat, Feb 28th 2009 6:43 pm by Mark Fitzgerald 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 are 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..

Some Association of Realtors provide us with what is called an Incremental MLS data feed (We receive only new and updated properties). Incremental M...

Qualified VS Non-Qualified Leads

Fri, Feb 27th 2009 1:59 pm by Mark Fitzgerald Development

Before I kick off this topic let me first introduce myself. My name is Mark Fitzgerald aka “Fitz”. I have been around Real Estate most of my life and have written a number of tools over the years to help realtors in their day to day business. For 9 years I was the VIP for development for a company in RTP called Random Games. We contracted out a number of game titles from Scrabble, Hasbro’s version(s), to War hammer Chaos gate 40k. During this time, I was also working with realtors to help them with their software needs. After 2002 I moved into Real Estate Web Development full time and stepped out of the game industry for good. One thing about working in the game industry is you lose your ...
