Your website user is like a traveler needing directions, help with more than detailed listings and the where to eat, where to stay, where to get a home mortgage loan, what to do for fun and not just the IDX sliced and diced saved search done six ways from Sunday. More clear wide images. Greater   details weaved in than the MLS yes, no, maybe and 5-3-1 fields.

Video increases the results 400%, blogging on the FAQ customize to hone in on your local area market uniqueness over 55%. Have the optimized lightning load speed, responsive design, mobile friendly skinny slim fast for the teenie weenie handheld device. Sprinkl in the social circuit sharing icons  and most importantly navigation. Navigation is everything and better be the kind that won't make the UX confusing and that causes bounce. If the surfer, the buyers and sellers can not drive a stick, make sure the forward direction deeper shifts automatic easy into your website that makes them not want to leave, to hang around and that's a cinch to find the information aisles. Buyers over here, sellers right this way. Come back anytime for more of the information buffet hot and ready to serve you any time of day or night. Talk to them like you see them and only them in the audience. Help them right now and not feeling delayed or left hanging. Take the time to make your website worthwhile, what you would want if you were in the buyer and seller high top sneakers. 

Is that more than five? Community pages treated like websites inside a website so they showcase Mayberry real estate, Pixley real estate and all that happens in those breakout communities. Maps, weather, financial and mileage calculators, testimonials, about us, contact, search box. Popular listing widget, new listing slider, random properties to tap the corner of their eye but balanced and consistent in your brand colors and design. You don't want them leaving, need the user to stick around until they want to meet you down at the corner check out register call to action. They found it... all done beyond the 9-5 limitations waiting around until Monday morning to get what your site lacked. Make the website shaped for a market reach designed far far from just your local area and not just like 90 percent of the others clogging the information highway.
