There's far more to creating a successful Real Estate website than just providing a portal for property listings. So before even implementing such a website, check some of these often overlooked factors. You can find executives of real estates and the latest company news at realestategameworks.
Use Industry Standard CMS:
CMS stands for Content Management System. These systems draw content from a database into standard page designs, and allow for simple and quick updating of websites through a simple Web Interface. This eliminates re-designing web pages and re-ordering the web site every time new information has to be uploaded. If a new look is required at some point, a new style sheet is simply uploaded to the site, and everything is changed automatically.
For most Real Estate websites, there are basically two primary requirements. The first is to have a CMS system that allows content to be updated on a frequent basis (the Web Shell). Secondly, there needs to be one or more separate modules that manipulate a separate database of properties (the Application).
For most site owners, there is no need to utilize custom written CMS. Firstly, it can be very expensive, and secondly, if you terminate your contract with your chosen web site developer, you will not be able to hand-over the site to a new developer.
By using industry-standard CMS and modules, your website development can be easily transferred to another developer who is familiar with the underlying CMS. This helps protect your investment in the future. In a Real Estate website, this regionalization can be effectively used to create regional franchises that regional business people buy under license from the main domain owner.
Essential Features for a Real Estate Listing Service
In a listing services website, the domain owner is usually looking for a convenient method by which FSBO or agencies can upload their property details through a web interface. Therefore, it is essential to have a payment system integrated into the site. Of course, for those who simply want a site for listing their own agency properties, this is not such an important requirement.
The next consideration must be the amount of information that should be allowed. In most countries a listing should comprise of a tick-box summary of base features such as heating, air Conditioning, parking spaces etc. This should be complimented with summary details of the accommodation. For user convenience, all property information should be displayed as tabbed sections so that users do not have to scroll through pages of information.
