Find a Way For Your Real Estate Website to Stand Out

We all know that our marketing efforts need to be striking, bold, and help your business to stand out from the crowd of competitors. Exactly the same applies to your website.

Not only is your site an information center for your clients, but it’s a crucial aspect of your marketing strategy.

Designing your real estate website to stand out and function exactly the way you need it to, means that using pre-made web designs is a no-go. If your real estate franchise uses them you can always personalize your real estate website.

While it may seem complex on the surface, there are tools to help you build the perfect website on your own. An MLS WordPress plugin can help to get you there without any hassles or stresses.

Optimize Your User Experience on Your Real Estate Website

We all know that finicky websites and apps are off-putting, and when things don’t operate easily or as they should, we may feel inclined to simply click off. Making sure that your site offers an easy-flowing user experience is vital.

A Beautiful Design

When it comes to selling homes, we all know that aesthetics play a major role. Not only do the properties need to look good, but your website does too. This all adds to the user experience you’re creating.

A beautifully designed and premium-looking website will add to the premium feel you want to be giving to both your existing and potential clients.

When your site looks like luxury, your clients will be able to feel like they are getting a luxury experience overall.

Understand SEO for Your Real Estate Website

When it comes to online content, SEO is a crucial aspect to consider for real estate websites. While it might seem technical (and it can be) getting at least a basic understanding of how it works will be crucial for your business. However, it will help in making sure that your site appears in web searches.

There are various resources available online where you can learn the basics as well as the more technical side of using SEO for your business.

Make sure to do a little research, and hire professionals where you know you need the assistance.

Have an About You Page

Having an about you page helps people understand better who you are and what you do. This is very important for a real estate agent or broker/owner. People want to know who you are before they do business with you.

They love seeing a picture of you to connect better with you.

Feature a Blog on Your Site

Why a blog for your real estate business? Having a blog will be a great way to answer clients’ questions. As they come up you can write a blog post in response to their questions.  If one person has a question you know others may too.

By answering these questions in blog posts it will make you appear as an expert. After all, you probably are an expert in real estate, right?

Not only that but the blog will help the SEO of your website and draw more traffic to your site. It’s a win-win scenario for your real estate website.

Call to Actions on Real Estate Websites

Having a call to action is important for your website. You will want people to be able to contact you, sign up for an email or see the latest open houses or new listings. Or, you can have people sign up for email alerts for new listings, etc. in their area.

By having these call to actions you can better track your website traffic. Of course, having Google Anlaytics installed on your site is another way to track everything for your site.

Don’t Forget Social Media

Last but not least don’t forget to add your social media buttons for your website and to often post things from your website on social media.

If you do go with the blog feature be sure each post has the share buttons on them with linking back to you so you will know who shares your content.

Here are agents you can learn from on Twitter. Pick and choose which social networks you want to use to stand out. Some agents use Facebook, others may use Instagram or YouTube. There are many different networks for you to choose from.
