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.
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.
