How to build the ultimate Real Estate Web Package

Services for Real Estate Pros with Expressions Laboratory

I am wanting to develop a product for this industry.. and i am looking for the advise of experienced professionals who have used other tools.

What features should a Real Estate web site have? Now keep in mind I am wanting to develop something for single agents, brokers, and offices.

How effective have web sites been in helping your business?

Would anyone be interested in beta testing a system like this once it is developed?

Are you happy with your current site? Are you satisfied with the professionalism of the organization that sold you your current web applications?

What online tool for Real Estate does not exist.. but should?

Good question!  I'll have to think on that one.  My site does not generate all the hits I would like, but to pay so much for lead generation is riduculous to me.  Keep thinking, I'm sure there is an answer somewhere.

Aaron first of all welcome and thanks for the follow on twitter.  I have built my business on my internet presence.  It contributes to 60% of my business.  I think the most effective tools I use is the email drip campaign and the lead capture feature.  But nothing is going to work if you don't call the leads back.  Duh!
