Bigger & Better Initial Impressions
The new websites we want to showcase today have some key improvements compared to many of our previous years’ projects. One of the bigger focus was on having a Cinematic Intro on many website sections such as the homepage & team pages, or the listing detail pages which is an entry point for visitors almost 40% of the time.
Full width images with menu items overlaid on top, as well as video background intros became more popular. Optimization for mobile devices for a better first look was also a major focus – not only for visual purposes, but also for load-time purposes. There have been many engineering improvements under-the-hood that contribute towards a much faster loading time, which is loved by both clients and Google™.
How Customization Can Help Realtors®
Truth is that every real estate agent in town has equal access to the current MLS® listings, all sales history of any property, as well as the same statistics provided by each respective real estate board. Even our template websites get the hand-crafted attention to match the colours & text, as well as the overall feel, to your brand specifically. Our customized websites help to distinguish our agents even further from the crowd. Impressions do matter, and therefore custom designed real estate websites with hand-crafted labour behind them makes all the difference.
Not only is it better looking – but having a brand-specific message, with a unique set of content helps your website stand apart from the crowd on search engines as well. Content is king when it comes to SEO.
