Fully customized estate agency websites are here

by Adriaan Grove, Entegral

Are you an estate agency looking for a fully customized website? You've probably received some eye watering quotes or think a customized website is reserved for large franchise groups?

How things used to work until now
Nowadays, most real estate website solutions give you a very limited choice in terms of customization. In most cases, one template is offered where the home page and overall colour scheme can be tweaked to create a more unique look and feel. This customization, unfortunately, disappears when you start to drill down to the sub-pages and realize your website is an exact duplicate of your competitor's.

This is done with reason, as web development companies need to keep costs low, and having one set of code to maintain helps a great deal. Fully customized websites need to be built from scratch, which in turn means a large upfront investment, time, and associated delivery risk. It certainly puts a damper on any creative ideas or unique work…

It is 2019, start investing in content if you are not already doing so
One of the best investments you can make for your real estate website (apart from creating a great user experience) is to create valuable content that's relevant to your audience. Most estate agents have resorted to integrating news articles and in some cases area articles into their websites to achieve some level of personalisation.

The main focus on real estate websites seems to be on the design (in most cases only the home page is customized), and not on telling your story, showcasing your expertise or giving visitors valuable sticky content. This goes skin deep when the rest of your website looks like that of your competitor. You need to start thinking further than the "one fit for all" template websites out there that doesn't encourage any creativity beyond the home page. In most cases customization beyond the home page cannot be done or you are charged an ar…

MyProperty South Africa - tweaked home page

Image
Last year we introduced our new MyProperty South Africa property portal, that runs on our Flex Template Language real estate platform. FlexTL is a unique serverless real estate platform that allows for the rapid development of real estate websites of any size, and even allows you to use your own developers.

Since the launch we've been hard at work with some fine tuning, brain storming new functionality and coding enhancements for incremental roll-outs this year.


Today we've updated the home page which aims to highlight some key features:

The integrated Google search is kept. It allows you to type in any location in South Africa, and the system will search for properties in a radius around that point, allowing buyers to find more listings in the same area. A neighborhood feature highlights selected areas and gives insight into popular areas in South Africa including photos, map, latest listings and agents. This is already the largest selection of neighborhood info and photos for…
