Zillow Launches Customizable Real Estate Websites!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with RealSupport Inc.

While we enjoy creating customized real estate websites for our clients, we know that not everyone can afford the luxury of complete customization.  That’s why when we saw that our friends at Zillow just launched their Premiere Agent websites; we wanted to help spread the word!

 

Zillow has done a lot for bringing real estate to millions with a single click, and we have enjoyed teaming up with them on a number of levels.  We always offer our clients the opportunity for us to enhance their listings on Zillow, write a customized blog post they can share on their Zillow blog and much more!  So, naturally we were excited to see Zillow take their services to the next level.

 

Of course I could sit here and explain how it all works, but visuals are much more fun and Zillow created this light hearted video to give you the 411.


  

If you’re already a part of their Premiere Program; the website is free!  Otherwise, just $10 a month will give you full access to creating your Zillow website.  Here are a few of the other features we love about the Premiere Agent Websites:
 

- MLS property search through IDX

- City/community/school pages

- Personalized blog

- Ability to display video

- Ability to add custom pages

- A variety of widgets available at no additional cost, including mortgage calculator, reviews, search by affordability and more

- Home page slideshow for branding and/or featured listings

- Optimized for SEO

- Integrated with the Zillow CRM
 

Phew!  That’s quite a list of perks!  And, while you may think this is really exciting, you may be worried about the amount of time it will take you to get your Zillow website customized for you.  This is where we step in...

 

As Real Estate Virtual Assistants, we enjoy sharing with you the latest news and ideas in real estate marketing, but we also don’t want you to feel overwhelmed with trying to keep up with everything.  Our goal is to lighten your workload, not create a longer “to do” list for you!


If you’re interested in learning more about Zillow’s Premiere Agent websites and getting yours up and running; please let us know!  We would love to help you customize this site and free you up to keep doing what you do best!

Ok so $10 a month is cheap but I'll never understand why anyone does not just do a Wordpress. Those can be about as cheap as you like although IDX will cost extra.

Hi Corrine,

Thank you for the comment! Yes, Wordpress sites are on the cheaper side, although what is so great about the Zillow website is that it will include the IDX search, which is quite a bit more money if you do it separately with a typical Wordpress site. Zillow's Premier Agent websites will actually be using a Wordpress platform, so you would be getting similar features to typical Wordpress sites WITH the ability to make small customizations AND including an IDX.

We think that if you already have a great, full-functioning website with history and optimized pages, then there's no reason for you to switch to these Premier Agent Websites through Zillow. If you're a newbie, however, this is a great option for you. It's cost-effective and offers a lot of great possibilities. Just our two cents.

Thanks again for the thoughts, Corrine! We hope you'll come back and blog with us soon.
