What would be the ultimate application for a Real Estate Agent to have on their Facebook Page?

So, you have created your own Facebook page(s) and now you want to spice it up? You can add features, add applications,  provide information, show off what your listings.

Have you thought about having your own custom home search application?

I bet you have thought about it and either found it not available or proven to be to confusing to create the application inside of Facebook. There are applications out there where you can add your listings to your FB profile and or page but they seem to be cumbersome and not really useful.

It is now possible to get your own Custom IDX built into a Facebook and added to your page.

How do you get your own?

This application is custom built for each individual agent. The only requirement is that you already have your own custom IDX solution that has an embeddable link. Most likely everyone reading this post has their own IDX solution so you are good to go.

To get started use My Contact form – Contact Me
Or call me at 714-442-2500

Before setting it up I will want to speak with you to make sure it can be done. Then I will walk you through all the steps you and I will need to do to add the application to your page.

How much does it cost?

It is very inexpensive.

$100.00 Setup fee
$5.00 per month hosting fee

Why the hosting cost? Facebook applications actually live outside of Facebook and on a server on the internet. For your custom Facebook Home Search your application will sit on my server so I can manage it for you.

    Do you have an example of this in action? I’m not sure if any consumer would actually search for homes for sale inside of FB; I just think they are not in the right mindset to look at listings while on Facebook. But I could be wrong…

    Here are a few.

    I somewhat agree, but the nice thing about can attract them to your FB Page and then from your page you more opportunity to engage them.

    Plus it’s just cool

    Do you have an example where you can embed the search straight into the Tab at the top and not have the consumer click the map?

  4. Jeff on May 20, 2009 at 12:10 pm

    I like the direction. I tried clicking on the map on the Pelton Team and the page wouldn’t load. Maybe just an old link. This app is worth considering.

    Thanks Jeff.

    The links in the comments work. Try it again and let me know.

    Maybe you hit the link when I was working on the server.

    Thanks

  7. Joshua Patz on September 2, 2009 at 7:47 am

    Is this Home Seach app an acutual application that can be searched for once created in the application directory of facebook? It’s awesome!! Or are you just writing FBML code for a page?

  8. Loren Nason on September 7, 2009 at 7:32 pm

    Joshua,

    The home search app is custom created for each individual agent.

    It is not FBML
    It is possible to search for the app but the ones I have created haven’t even gotten over the 5 user threshold to make it publishable thereby making it search able.

    The app is not meant to be found by search but to be added to a REALTOR’s page or for a REALTOR to direct someone directly to it.

    Contact me directly if you have anymore questions
