How to Choose the Right Real Estate Website Template
Real estate website templates should be beautiful and functional, offering an array of features that make user experience easy and represent your brand well. There are four elements that should comprise well-functioning real estate templates: responsiveness, fast loading, IDX compatibility, and the ability to generate seller leads.
Responsiveness is the ability of real estate website templates to look good and function seamlessly on mobile devices. According to a 2017 NAR study, 72 percent of homebuyers used a mobile phone or tablet in their home search. Having a real estate website template that functions well across mobile devices is essential.
If your website is slow, you’re losing leads. According to Kissmetrics, 40 percent of your page visitors will leave if your page doesn’t load within three seconds. While most real estate website templates are designed to load quickly, you want to be sure to not use too many plug-ins or large images that can affect load speed.
IDX, or the Internet Data Exchange, is how realtors add MLS searchability to their website. Any real estate website templates you select should have the ability to integrate an IDX plug-in that allows this functionality. Most homebuyers will start their search online before consulting an agent, so IDX compatibility is paramount to capture these unrepresented leads.
Ability to Generate Seller Leads
Two primary ways that real estate website templates generate seller leads are through Home Valuation Landing pages and Lead Capture forms. Home Valuation landing pages offer a CMA (comparative market analysis) in exchange for contact information, while other types of lead capture forms can ask for contact information prior to things like home searches.
The Bottom Line
The best real estate website templates combine both functionality and beauty, allowing you to put your best foot forward when presenting your brand to the outside world. Evaluating real estate templates for your own needs can initially seem like a daunting task, but we hope to have given you the options and criteria to get what you need. Ignore the beautiful photos on the templates, and look to see what each can do for you.
