Getting a real estate agent website can be frustrating. We know of REALTORS® and real estate agents that have spent a lot of money on a custom agent website only throw it all away and start over again every two to three years. Others end up with agent website templates that look like every other site on the web, or even worse, the agent ends up with a website that was built 10 years ago and has never changed. You should ask is not what your agent website can do today, but how will your site keep up with future technology changes. Will it be scalable and on a flexible platform to allow for changes in technology that most certainly will come? Also, consider using a responsive design, so your agent website will look good on PCs or Android phones or other smartphone and tablet devices. The worst thing you can do is get painted into a technological corner leaving few options for future growth and development.
Agent Website Design
A custom agent website design is great option for developing your own unique brand, but the downside is that this agent website is less affordable and more static in terms of content. Unless you are willing to pay your designer to keep your site updated you should look at a more out-of the box solution for your agent website.
Agent Website Templates
Getting one of the affordable real estate agent website templates can be a great way to go, but you must be careful to go with a template that is going to stay updated. Some companies offer templates pre-configured with calculators and tools which can be helpful, but you should avoid services that offer articles for your clients. Please feel free to contact us if you need any clarification on templates as they apply to agent website. There are CMS products like wordpress, drupal, or joomla that can provide the best of both worlds as there are a lot of out of the box features but also they can be given a customized look and feel and focus on your unique brand. Many of these templates have plugins including google maps to let users find your property.
Agent Website with IDX
IDX and MLS integration are and ideal way to keep your site updated and eliminate duplicate data entry. Most of the time, this content is brought in through a frame which makes integration a snap but can sometimes hurt your results when trying to get your content on to your site.
