Chances are if you are going to my condo site (http://www.atlantaSKYrise.com) and blog, you are probably looking to view property listings and get as much detailed condo information as possible. I know there are numerous websites you can use to get information and search properties, but my goal is to have a content rich site where you can do everything you need, all in one place.
My site is updated throughout each and every day with the newest properties to hit the market, so it will show every single property available in Atlanta and the surrounding areas – provided they are listed in the MLS. For newer condo buildings, please contact me to find out what is available. Sometimes the developer/seller will only put a handful of listings in the MLS, while there are still a good number available to purchase.
Highlight updates include: Full Screen Mode, Search Active, Backup/Contingent and Pending Listings, Radius Search Option, Birds Eye View of Property Location, Similar Listings Tab, Multiple Listing Price History, Add RSS Feeds for Easy Viewing of New/Updated Property Listings, Include Just or Exclude Pre-Foreclosure, Short Sale, Bank/Lender Owned Properties.

Search in Full Screen Mode
Wow! This is a great feature to use. Click this icon and my idx viewer will open a new window to the size of your computer screen. Pictures become large and easy to see.
Search Active, Backup/Contingent and Pending Listings
You can now choose whether to include pending and backup mls listings in search results, or search just active listings only. If you are registered user on my condo site, this is a fantastic way to save searches and get automatically emailed when there are pending listings.
Radius Search Option
Search technologies are always improving to make your life easier! I just added a great new feature so you can search for properties by radius. Use your browser’s auto-detected location (or type in an alternate address) to find listings within 1/2 mile, 1 mile, or up to 20 miles of your desired target neighborhood or street. After you are done, click the green box to display your results. You can also save your Radius search and have new listings emailed to you automatically.
Birds Eye View of Property Location
A Bird’s Eye View map from Bing gives an aerial view of each listing (where available). Just click on the “Maps” tab directly under the listing description and click on the “Bird’s Eye View” hyperlink. A new browser window will open up with the aerial view.
Similar Listings Tab
Each property listing includes tabs for each comparison of similar active and pending properties from the idx feed. Just click on “Similar” and the results will load. Click on individual properties to view them.
Multiple Listing Price History
You can review all past price fluctuations for a property listing in “Listing Price History.” The filed will show you the listing period as well as what the price was.
Add RSS Feeds for Easy Viewing of New/Updated Property Listings
New and updated idx listing alerts for any search are also available via RSS feeds for use with Google, Yahoo, Outllook, or any other XML feed reader! Just create a search for your desired neighborhood, condo building or area. When your results load, click on the “Get Property Updates Via RSS Feed.” A pop-up window will appear asking you to name your search. Enter the desired name and a new window will appear in your browser with the rss feed.
Include Just or Exclude Pre-Foreclosure, Short Sale, Bank/Lender Owned Properties
A great feature if the option to exclude short sale and/or idx foreclose listings from your search. You can also include just those property types if you desire.
Happy Searching! Please feel free to email or call me with any questions or if you need a quick tutorial in person! http://www.atlantaSKYrise.com
