Topic: IDX Tutorial for a Real Estate Application???

CF_Newbie    -- 11-25-2007 @ 8:52 PM
  Looking for a little help, I know many of you including Pablo has set up applications that consume real estate idx feeds from MLS systems then save the information locally to a database or... Not really sure how this works and would appreciate a tutorial on this subject, perhaps with some working examples for download so I can play with and not have to reinvent the wheel

  Where are you located. Region-wise? This will make all the difference. You may have to pay big bucks to get the raw data feeds to the mls/idx. I have created a system, it is proprietary software which I dont want to give out, but I may be able to help you a bit...

1st Thing: call you mls office and get access to the raw data feed.

  Yes I have, all I can find are services selling the application I'm trying to build and host on my own using coldfusion. Type in idx and you'll get a million services and realtor associations and so on who use idx or are writing about it, none of them how to's other than how to use our idx solution!

I'm in New Jersey and I'll take all the help I can git! T
he RAW data feeds do have a charge but they are minimal seeing that I am already a member of the MLS because I am a realtor as well. I started out in IT and Web dev and made the jump! Like a million other shmucks! lol...

Now I'm just looking to create an application or build upon one already available to learn more about coldfusion and so I don't have to shell out all the $doe$ on a host for consuming idx service feeds...

I checked out your demo, very nice! That would be a great starting point for what I had in mind.

  Hey cf_newbie

Yeah my real estate is a full featured solution. I can integrate with any MLS and pull the data down. What is cool about my system is when ever you want to list a home  as a featured tour on your site, all you have to do is enter the MLS number in your admin section and the site automatically constructs the virtual tour, all the data, a GPS satellite map to your property, auto lists it with, and gives you the option to list with it has full built in virtual tours, java tours, google maps, yahoo gps'ing funtionality, search engine optimized and you can add unlimited pages to your site...

It is the full featured solution!

Anywho, if you are interested I could totally hook you up. It would save you approximately 560 hours. Thats what it took us.


Oh yeah and it has the idx.

  Thanks, but no thanks...
I noticed you stalk keywords on the forum to sell your service but that's not what I'm looking for. I can buy an application if I wanted that was full featured and make my upgrades to it. I want to own my application, make changes and upgrades and use it as I please. You have restrictions on that! Not looking to "Rent" an application. Yours is nice but by no means "finished" or comprehensive for my use, just a great starting place.

Good luck with your sales hunt!

  Hey CF_NEWBIE, before you judge my intentions again, you can rest assure that I will never answer another one of your trivial, petty questions. Why don't you learn how to code you hack so you don't have to grovel asking someone to answer you rediculous questions! My intention is never to use a forum to sell a program, but if someone is looking for something that I have spent a lot of time and money creating, then yeah, I will offer my services and my advice. So bon voyage pal, good luck on a project that you will probably never complete on your own!!!

  Oh yeah, CF_NEWBIE, if was just trying to harvest biz off a forum, they why have I taken time to answer a slew of other people posts to various questions. To what extent have you contributed to this forum. As far as I can tell, you are just here to consume and not participate. So why don't you just delete your account and move on so we don't have to deal with you your stupid remedial questions any longer.

- Angered at CF_Newbie for being stupid!

CF_Newbie    -- 12-06-2007 @ 5:10 PM
  temper...temper... I know of many cf and asp and .net appz out there that have all these features plus and they are available for purchase and open source, that is why I never asked for information on how to rent an application that I don't have direct control over. That is bad for business anyway so don't be a jerk!

If you read my question I was looking for a starting point application, free or cheap... So stop busting my nutz over here!

And yes I did a search on this site and have found anyone asking about real estate or idx has had a reply from you pushing your wares so who ya think your bs'ing
Besides I paid you a compliment on your app, you should have offered to sell it as well.

FYI: I'm not new at this, its just a handle! I like to observe the human psychie to see how people act and under different conditions and when they think someone don't know jack! I am experienced, just not looking to start from scratch and you would have understood that when reading my question if you were looking to help and not sell or rather rent me your application.

Anyway this question is out there still for others willing to help.

waynobweno    -- 12-06-2007 @ 5:33 PM
  Well Newbie is there is an open source app out there that has this info that you need, then why the heck are you asking for someone here to take time to rebuild the wheel for you... Go and get the open source app and stop bugging us to do your busy work...

  Wow that CF_Newbies guy is a tad rude!! Accusing waynobweno of using the forums when his first post was asking someone to build him an application.

Nothing is free. It sounds like a good app and I'd totally buy it if it saves me that much time. TIME = MONEY!!

CF_Newbie    -- 12-07-2007 @ 2:48 PM
  WoW waynobweno, you really are a jerk off!!!

Open Source does not mean Free! It means you can see and edit the code ya retard!!!

Why do you keep responding to my post if you are not planning to help? That is what this forum is suppose to be for.

Sell your crap somewhere else, if I wanted to rent your app I would but that would not be a good business decision like I've explained to you before. If you knew anything about business you would understand. I realize you do not want to share the code of your application or sell it, that is fine but no good for a business to rely on because I don't know how long you will be in business and if you closed your doors tomorrow because you finally graduated high school we would be screwed. See how its not a good idea now?

Besides I was asking if anyone knew of a starting point, you could have just said NO! and not been such an a*s, Get over it, I dont want to rent your app, if it was for sale for a reasonable price maybe but its not so get lost and quit soliciting here... I have been a member of this forum for years under another handle and have contributed greatly unlike you, ya leach, wanna be gorilla marketer!

The one time I ask if anyone knew of a starting point app which is not at all uncommon. you've done it to if  not you obviously never developed for a living where time is an issue and code is often reused and if it belongs to someone else permission must first be obtained. Done with your lame a*s, now get lost, beat it! You are being very unproductive!

louissto56 is that another handle for waynojerkoffo?
Rude, read the entire post first DUDE!

  Ok you need to calm down. Being abusive isn't going to get you anywhere.

If you were another member... what was your username? Why would you call yourself CF_Newbie if you were here for years? I don't believe you and IMO I think you should be banned from these forums for your inappropriate language.

Read the guidlines:
5. Keep your post clean, bad language or "non-acceptable" content will NOT be tolerated on these forums. It will be deleted and your account will be removed.

  Oh CF_Newbie,

When you cant get your way, just like a two year old you start up with the cussing and kicking...

For you information, you ignorant fool (I can play your game also), here is the definition of Open Source. Please please become familiar with this term as it may help enlighten you and help you graduate to actually become a productive participant in application development guild...

Open Source: Open source is a set of principles and practices on how to write software. Literally “open source” means the source code is available to the users. The Open Source Definition, which was created by Bruce Perens and Eric Raymond and is currently maintained by the Open Source Initiative, adds additional meaning to the term. One should not only get the source code but also have the right to use it. If the latter is denied the license is categorized as a shared source license.

There ya go... Read it and weep you ignorant fool. I am not wasting your time, I am trying to keep you from making an idiot of yourself. You are using this forum to vent your frustrations and nothing more. So do us all a favor and LEAVE, cause no one like you at ALL!!! You are not helping anyone at all...

If you are such a great participant to this site, then why would you have to accuse people of selling merch here, and start slandering people, and just more less throwing accusations all around. Why would you have to change your handle? My guess is you just are not an easy fellow to get along with. I assume you have had these issue before and you probably got banned. That is neither here nor there.

Newbie, I will never ever answer your question, you will never get my code, and I will never help you AT ALL!,  and if you ask the question on here again, then I will point everyone to this post and show them what an inconsiderate individual you really are and how they should not even stoop to work with you.

louissto56, thanks for your support in dealing with this person. He truely has no regard for others as well as this forum. And no Newbie, to answer your question, I am not that big of a dumbass that has to make another profile to stroke my ego... I am upfront man and that is the bottom line...

CF Newbie, just for your information, this forum is a place where you can share ideas and applications that have been built.

For your info, here are the posts that I have put up that deal with my application and even trying to promote it...
1. - offered to help someone build a virtual tour system, never tried to sell them one thing.
2. - the showcase to show off your site, yup, told everyone what my app is all about.
3. - offered to save a guy a lot of time and money by offering my application instead of built one from scatch. No harm done there!
4. -  My post to CF Newbie, that totally wrecked his life and made him cry like a wee bitty baby... i regret even trying to help this two year old out...

Aside from this CF_Newbie, I am not sure where you are getting that I am using this forum to promote my products.

I think you have a really big chip on your shoulder and you suffer from insecurity issues. So selvie you freak...

And oh yeah, I am not going to help you at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My other handle, your kidding right!!!

If you did read my entire post and not just side with the your buddie who made 3 assenign posts with no positive feedback which is what forums are for in the first place. Perhaps you may have thought twice about jumping on his bandwagon if you read the posts first.

Either way I don't care how or what you or your buddy think, or the wares either has to peddle. Just leave me alone. I'm not looking to rent any applications yet he persists and then denies when accused of doing so...

How thick headed can someone be is beyond me! It's not like he is fooling anyone about not trying to sell his app which he thinks is all that, it appears nice but needs alot of functionality added to it for my use and who knows how good or bad it has been coded? Don't care really, cause I'm not renting or buying it!

Every now and again ya run into a jerk on forums, I understand that and can deal with it, but it's the first time I ran into one that had what appeared to be a partner in crime... If not read the storyboard before making comments!

I'm done with the comments because I will not help build controversy or news about him and his wares.

Nuff Said...

CF_Newbie    -- 12-07-2007 @ 3:48 PM
  Spare me! Fool... Crying... Go sell or rent your junky little app to someone who cares! I ain't buying or renting it, I'll make my own, in half the time, better looking and with more features that would be useful to a real estate agent.

Waaaahhhh!!!!! Get Lost Jerky!!!!

I'm not getting involved although CF_newbie is trying to drag me into this because I objected to his abusive language. I actually have never spoken to waynobweno so you can't really say we are "buddies".

I still say a mod/pablo should delete his account. He takes things too far and doesn't need to resort to insults.

  Okay Newb here is the solution:

Get set up with the idx system, set up cron tasks to grab the data, parse the data, dump the data, set up the cron to grab the pics, combine the data, structure the data, set up the data forms, set up the ajax, set up the requestions and on and on...  

Yup your right. it is just getting the data. Thats all there is... Now good luck!

  Quit your cryin and trying to be "PC" Politically Correct, just don't read the replies I haven't said anything that bad so get over it.

We'll it looks like we are getting quite the audience with over 900 views in this topic, maybe I'm not the only one looking for assistance or a starting point or who thinks it would be a good topic for a tutorial...

waynobweno - you claim to be the expert not trying to sell or rent your appz here, why not do a tutorial for the good folks here at easycfm? Maybe you'd actually get some customers by being helpful rather than your current approach... I am a marketing "Expert", take it from me that approach would work better! On the other hand I'm not trying to help you so keep on truckin' like you have been, bet you didn't have many friends in school... lol...

CF_Newbie    -- 12-07-2007 @ 4:31 PM
  Don't need to setup cron, I'm using a windows server!

I used to manage server networks linking over 40 retail outlets for cablevision so don't act like seting up a crontab job is a big deal! Macro, Cron, you can set that up in CF as well.

think of name for company
get a domain
setup hosting server
create images for website
create javascripts
create css and html
choose color scheme

I know I provoked him after the fact and now looking back, I do apologize, I just could not see where this guy was coming from. I thought I would just push his button a bit and I see it worked...

IRS for stealing money that I rightfully made.
IPOD for making music even better.
Pablo for not banning us from his forum, though, somewould like to see someone banned, but we wont mention names will we...
