How much are you willing to pay for the website?

By
Real Estate Agent with century 21

I am a new agent and right now I have a website with Point2Agent. I don't like their service that well since they do not have IDX integration. I wanted a new website, and I was wondering how much are you guys paying for your website/or willing to pay for your website. Thank You.

I am with Point 2 and I have IDX if you are a Professional Member.  Are you sure they do not offer it for your site?  I pay around $40/per month and about $100 for setup.  I would also suggest looking into a neighborhood website as well as it can be INSTRUMENTAL in your success.  Good Luck,

I have made the mistake of paying $1000's for a website.  I would be careful.  Download Page Rank on your toolbar.  (Google it).  Then surf the sites that supposedly are great sites.  It's fascinating to me that many of the sites that may look great have zero Page Rank - meaning that Google doesn't place any importance on their site.

If you are looking for traffic, not just an online business card, look for the things your buyers and sellers are looking for.  Content.  Before you spend a bunch of money, educate yourself on what is working - not just what looks good. 

Good luck.

I use Point2agent and it works well for me, and if you go professional it does have the IDX.  Good Luck!

I can't have the IDX because my MLS is a moron but I still lof the website and have integrated the IDX I am authorized by my company.  here is my site - www.kitsaprealestate411.com If you use them tell them I sent ya :)

Agreed. Why to pay set up fee.There are so many options available in the market. 

I have my website with Realwebleads (Based locally) and I am satisfied for what I pay . I have my free website with point2 aget also( Witch they intend to stop w.e.f Mar). They do have IDX service integration. You can add your listing and even make a virtual tour yourself also. The services offered by point2agent are not bad at all. Just take your time and explore.  

The fee for any website will start from $50 and up, depending upon what you want. You can even ask for a deal also ! There are so many . Just hunt in your area.

I am with Property Minder right now at about $100 per month, they are pretty good, have been checking out others though and it seems to me most of the decent ones are around the same with a set up fee up to around $1,000.

I love my Point2Agent site.  They syndicate to almost 30 sites and like was said above does IDX with the Professional package.

How a site is designed doesnt have anything to do with page rank. Page rank is wholly the measure of how many links point to it.

Why not teach yourself web design? I pay $4.99 / month.

I also use the Point 2 platform (Standard Membership) and have really liked the way I can set up the site to my liking.  It is so important to shop around and make sure you are getting good value for your site.  Take care and happy blogging!
