Why are you holding on to your old real estate website when you (should) know it looks bad?

Ready-made real estate website by Hosting-Group

These are some arguments I hear about why people are scared to get a new website

  • Worry they are going to lose their SEO ranking.
  • Everyone tells me my website looks good and easy to use
  • I have a lot of traffic on my site and don’t want to lose customers
  • They think it is too much work and cannot move all content

Worry they are going to lose their SEO ranking

Everyone tells me my website looks good and easy to use

I have a lot of traffic on my site and don’t want to lose customers

They think it is too much work and cannot move all content

A great real estate website should have at least these features

  • A clean and beautiful design. The first impression is important.
  • Mobile friendly
  • SaaS-based (Software as a Service) such as exPub.net, so it is always up to date and always backed up by the provider. After all, you are a real estate agent and not a webmaster
  • Easy admin of properties
  • Easy image upload with resize
  • CRM — Customer Relationship Management where you can link multiple properties to an owner
  • Owners information for each property

A website is more than just the website

  • How long have they been in business? Are they here to stay?
  • Do they have a fixed-line phone number you can call them on when you need help, or is it just one person and a mobile phone?
  • Do they have a team that can help you with any future needs you might have? Or is it a one-man show?
  • Do they have the in-house skills to do changes/add-ons you need in the future (everyone needs more in the future)
  • Can they change the module you are using for your real estate listing, or are they relying on third party suppliers? Make sure they can do changes if needed.
