iHomefinder Launches WordPress IDX Websites
Optima OmniPress Lets REALTORS® Launch Beautiful WordPress Sites in Minutes
Berkeley, CA (April 10, 2013) — iHomefinder today introduced Optima OmniPress, hosted WordPress websites that can be set up in minutes, featuring MLS/IDX search, superior lead generation and gorgeous design options. Optima OmniPress makes WordPress easy, delivering modern, feature-loaded websites that enable REALTORS to build their business instead of struggling with technology.
With its flexibility and search engine optimization (SEO) capabilities, WordPress has become the leading platform on which to build real estate websites. But finding reliable hosting, obtaining a domain name, setting up WordPress, configuring a professional-looking theme, and installing an IDX plugin can be overwhelming and expensive for REALTORS. Optima OmniPress takes the hassle out of WordPress by delivering hosted WordPress sites that are pre-installed with real estate-specific themes and iHomefinder’s powerful IDX plugin.
Real estate professionals are no longer satisfied with cookie-cutter template websites, and now demand professional, beautiful-looking websites. At the same time, most REALTORS can’t afford to spend thousands of dollars on a custom-designed website. Optima OmniPress strikes the perfect balance, offering gorgeous websites at very affordable prices. "Optima OmniPress makes great-looking WordPress websites with IDX accessible to everyone," said Brett DeSchepper, CEO of iHomefinder. "We made it easy for the average real estate agent to set up a site, but left the advanced features of WordPress intact for more tech-savvy agents."
Optima OmniPress themes come in a variety of colors and styles, each designed specifically for real estate websites. Customization is quick and easy – REALTORS can simply upload their logo, add a photo and bio information and choose slideshow images from the library, or add their own. More advanced users can customize theme colors, create a custom homepage, and install additional plugins from the approved plugins offered.
At the heart of each Optima OmniPress site is iHomefinder’s MLS property search with proven lead generation technology. Site navigation is pre-configured to take advantage of IDX features like basic and advanced search, Featured Listings, Email Updates and the Property Organizer. Additional features like Community Pages and an SEO City Links widget make it easy for agents to highlight the areas they serve and have those listings indexed by search engines. Each OmniPress site also includes a mobile website and Facebook integration.
