I think a real estate agent should never pay more than $100 dollars for their website with the emergence of WP and Joomla. I am a fan, though, of agents spending a little extra cash for designers to make your site more aesthetically pleasing and integrating the IDX. I run into a lot of real estate websites where the IDX is horribly iframed into the page and doesn't match the exterior. Another example is if you want something a little more functional. Our site at http://visumrealestategroup.com/map-search has a neighborhood search function that requires a little more coding than we could handle ourselves.
