7 Pages Real Estate Website

What makes a real estate website stand out from the crowd? It’s simple: great design, awesome content and a personal touch.  If your website is missing any of these key components, it’s likely falling short somewhere.

Great design comes down to your website provider, however great providers also offer you the tools to customize your website content, and add that personal touch to stand out. Here are 7 pages you should invest time in to fuel your real estate website for future success.

1. Home Page

If you’re like most website owners, your home page is the most visited page on your website. It’s commonplace for visitors to leave a website after only a few seconds of landing on a homepage, leading to a high bounce rate. By investing a bit of time in your home page to make sure that the design is impressive and the content is engaging you can combat a higher than usual bounce rate. Here’s one of our clients whose homepage design looks stunning, personalized, and full of valuable content

4. About Me

One of the best ways to personalize your website is to invest a bit of time in your “About Me” page. Here, you can share some of the reasons why you got into real estate, details about your professional background, discuss some of your passions aside from real estate, and present yourself to the reader on a more personal level.

By providing this personal insight, your visitors will gain a sense of connection and familiarity with you. This also provides them insights onto the circumstances both professionally and personally that sets you apart from other REALTORS®. 

Tip: Don’t just name your page “About Me”…get creative!

5. Testimonials

Buying or selling a home is a monumental decision. Selecting a REALTOR® is equally enormous. Many home buyers feel uncomfortable while choosing a REALTOR® to work with – especially if they’re not a referral! The best way to ease their discomfort is to have a robust testimonials page on your website. Adding photos of your clients to the testimonials page would be highly advisable.

6. Blog

Blogging is the cornerstone of any successful website. It’s not only good for SEO, but it’s also great in terms of personalizing your website. As a REALTOR®, you have expert knowledge and opinions on the housing market. It’s important to share that knowledge; having a blog allows you to share your opinions on your website and show your visitors that you are well versed in your field.

Blogging essentially allows you to build your brand – it also revolves entirely around your passion – real estate. So have fun with it, inform your audience, entertain your readers, and develop a relationship with your network.
