Estate agent websites require a very specific development style, compared to regular business information sites. This is due to the need for regular updating of property listing.
With so many competing estate agents, it’s important to make sure that yours stands out from the rest. People are more likely to use your service if your website looks appealing, is clear and intuitive and your property listings are easy to navigate. Customers can be easily put off if they are unable to find what they are looking for.
Our estate agent systems can be fully integrated into your existing website and come with a wide range of features. Property listings can be added, removed and updated with very little effort, and these can be quickly searched for by any visitor to your site. Our estate agent systems make the process of finding the right home that little bit easier.
That staff can easily add new and update listings
That properties will have the correct status i.e. to let, for sale, let, under offer, sold etc
Visitors to the site can effectively search properties by characteristics i.e. location, number of bedrooms, garden etc
Over the years edirect have developed many estate agent websites. We have a number of different solutions that we have worked with and would happily advise the best for you.
The Developers at edirect have created our own in-house estate agent websites, these provide a back-end content management system where you are able to update all of your property listings, with as few or as many different search fields as you require. These can all be updated from the same control panel as your static content pages.
There are many different estate agent solutions on the market that can be integrated with your website. The listings will be created on a 3rd party website and the feed will be sent to your website and displayed with our website design. This is generally a cheaper development option, however most 3rd party systems charge a monthly fee.
This solution ultimately means that you add your property listings to a 3rd party website and they will be displayed on your website within a frame. We are more limited to the design of the display here. This will be the cheapest development option, however Iframe will not be as effective for your search marketing. If you are looking to market your website offline, or just use this like a brochure style site where you can refer customers to view your property listings this would be a satisfactory solution.
Due to our experience in this market we feel we are very well placed to provide any estate agent with clear and understandable options tailored to your needs. Feel free to contact edirect for free, no obligation advice and quote.
