Looking for Options for Websites

By

Is a package deal worth its weight or should I just swallow and purchase the site I need now? I have viewed various options and just need some seasoned opinions...Help!

Hi Sarah and Vincent,  I'm not sure what your needs are exactly but you can check out the website of a good web designer

  Digital Ink Studio

Maybe he can advise you.  This webdesigner is doing my website right now Center Stage Design 

Mine is not quite ready but hopefully soon.  I am biased though I should tell yo, he is my husband but he has an excellent portfolio. Good luck to you both.

Hi Sarah and Vincent,

 What I have found is that alot of web sites are pretty much the same, same content etc., some more money than others. I would check out all of the options, find out what you like and what you think works best for you and then choose from there. There are companies out there that offer templates so that you can build your own web site. I did that for a while, and it worked out o.k, but I found that you were limited to content. Right now I use Frontpage by Microsoft, pay Godaddy to host it and I built it myself. My website is o.k., but the best thing is that I can do it myself, the way I want it and I can change it at anytime.

It is all personal preference, use what works best for you.

Hi Sarah and Vincent,

     My company builds custom designed websites, specifically for real estate...thats the ONLY industry that we build websites for, in fact, this is the only industry that we do marketing for (Brochures/Flyers/Postcards/Logos/Etc.)   We  can implement your current "PERSONAL BRAND"  or if you don't have one, we can work on creating one for you!   Each website is COMPLETELY CUSTOM, we do not use templates of any kind.   You had mentioned that you would like to be able to change your content at any time...Our sites allow you to log in and change the web content, just like you were writing a Microsoft Word Document--it's that EASY.  You can also add/edit/delete your listings from the site--easier than doing it on the MLS system!  Photos are a snap, and your content is unlimited, we can create as much content and build your site to your exact specifications and add only the features you want....We don't charge for extra features (IDX - MLS search is an optional pay service, that you may already have)   You pay a set reasonable fee for the site. 

You can email me for sample sites, for pricing info, or if you have any general questions! 

Thanks,
