Real Estate Industry WordPress Plugin development continues to attract companies looking to streamline workflows and integrate current technologies. AgentStorm is such a company.
They provide a Real Estate IDX & Contact Manager Plugin that is in beta (test phase). It looks rather straight forward to use and could add overall value to any Agents, Brokers or REALTORS© (WordPress) Real Estate Website. With over 80% of users who visit Real Estate Websites looking for property listings this plugin should come in handy. Check out and consider engaging current users and attracting new ones with this handy wordpress real estate plugin.
One feature that stood out for us was the fact that it imported your listings without IFrames or hidden containers and is completely indexable by search engines. This is where alot of current Real Estate Websites that offer property listings do not get a ROI (Return on Investment). If you paid for a fancy website and offer property listings that no one can find how smart was that investment? Food for thought! (**NOTE** Plugin is FREE while in Beta status)
