First things first
Intellectual Property, our top-ranked Joomla real-estate component, is about to get even better.
This quarter, we will be releasing an improved version of IProperty 4 which has already proven to be our most stable, feature rich version ever! The best component for property management firms, estate agencies and Joomla property portals is getting better with every release. Along with our previous enhancements including faster searching, improved image gallery management, Amazon S3 storage (which will make your responsive site even faster with Amazon's edge hosting locations for images), and hundreds of other improvements, there's still more to come. If you'd like to check the change log, you can find it here.
This 2018 first quarter release will feature a brand new map search view which will eventually be taking the place of our earlier advanced search views. The new map search is more intuitive, overridable, and altogether more logical. Searching by map bounds, reducing the amount of clutter caused by old slide filters, and maintaining a clean, intuitive user interface.
In other news...
In addition to updating and supporting our current core extensions, we're also working on some new exciting projects! We will be releasing our new Thinkery Virtual Tours hosted solution for Flex MLS members in the upcoming months. All you need to do is sign up, enter your api key, and away you go with unlimited virtual tours based on your MLS listings. All for a low monthly subscription charge. If you'd like to learn more, or help us beta test, please feel free to contact us!

Agents contact us all the time and ask if they can use their MLS Associations' "framed" results with our Intellectual Property Joomla Real Estate real estate website component.
The answer, unfortunately, is no. Without writing an unethical screen scraper, we couldn't get the data from the iframed page into the IProperty database.
But there's a bigger issue at stake here.
Agents who are new to internet marketing and real estate websites in general are missing out on a crucial fact-- iframed (or "smart framed") real estate listings on their site don't do them any good at all!
