Hello Naples Florida
As some of you have already learned, I've prematurely launched the new sold features on my Naples Florida real estate
site. I received a call from the Naples Area Board Of REALTORS this week explaining I was in violation of our MLS rules by displaying sold listings in the old format on my website. You can imagine my surprise since I'd been displaying those listings in that format for about 4 years now. Needless to say I felt much like Taylor Swift when Kanye West stole her microphone on the night she won best female video. Even though the lady from NABOR couldn't show me where it was stated in the MLS rules where I was in violation, I felt it important to take the high road and just launch some of the new features of my site even though all of the features aren't working exactly right....sigh.
So here's the highlights on the new sales format: Currently you'll be able to see what has sold since 2009, you'll be able to click the number of pictures and roll through all the pictures that were available on MLS and click on the MLS number and see the full data about the home along with a detailed map view. You will also be able to sort by price, subdivision, sales date etc! It will also work on an Apple products for the first time since the beginning YAAE! There are a few more features but I want there to be at least some surprises :)
The not so great news is we're still working on functionality and accuracy. For example I've included some great stats which are appearing at the top of the feed but are only accurate part of the time so until further notice, please don't rely on the statistics. Err....we have also included a feature that allows you to export the sales onto an Excel or Numbers spreadsheet but we're having a bit of trouble with the exporting feature. This is great if you're interested in Aqualane Shores
, not great if you're looking to do that with any other neighborhood in Naples right now....errr! There are some other issues on the back end I won't bore you with but what you do need to know if you're looking in Pelican Bay
, L'Ambiance at Pelican Bay
sales is not working and if you're looking in Grey Oaks
, L'Ermitage at Grey Oaks
sales is not working...might have something to do with the fact that our coders are not French...Merde! We're working on it!
Lastly, I want to thank you for your patience, pats on the back and loyalty while we slowly continue to improve the site. I've heard from many of you and it is truly the fuel that feeds the "always wanting to provide you with more" fire which propels us forward. We appreciate you and LOVE to hear from you. So please don't be scared to send us your questions, comments and suggestions.
