    Rigth now, I saw 98.162 listings. That's what I call a VERY NICE total number!

    Congrats,

    I like the layout, and considering all the listings, search times are not bad.

    Just curious, were are the listings coming from and how often are they updated? Are you scraping sites? have IDX feeds, etc...

    The listings are coming from a RETS server set up by my MLS provider. I am importing them in using Transparent RETS. The import is set as a cron to and runs nightly.

    This is absolutely fantastic. Your website looks like it was made by a professional real estate webmaster. I would like to say one thing though: I think it would look 100% better if everything was centered on the page.

    The site looks really professional. Are you supposed to be able to click the house images that you have scrolling on the right side? I'm using firefox v3 and am not able to click them. Haven't tested them in anything else.

    we have similar sites! I have greatly improved my search engine rankings by changing the sitemap to include the Title in the URL. Keywords in the URL are a GIGANTIC boost!!
    I then use http://www.xml-sitemaps.com/ ($19.99USD one time fee) sitemap generator to crawl just one page with all the listings on it and assign priority. Breaks the sitemap up into multiple files which google loves. I have attached mysitemap addon for you and am willing to help configure your crawler preferances if you use the same crawler.

    No offense to the other users, but this is probably the nicest OR website I've seen.

    Great site. I'd like to do more customization of my search page like you did. Any suggestions?
