How to Make a Real Estate Website by Yourself

Today, gathering information about a property is mainly done online, and an effective and informative website design can make or break a home sale.

Real estate websites enable your potential clients to view and compare numerous options from the comfort of their homes in no time, so it makes sense to take your business online as soon as possible, whether you’re a real estate agent or run your own company.

But how to get a website if you have no experience in web development?

In this review we’ll explore some great, easy-to-use and what’s more important – affordable web publishing solutions for real estate agents.

Wix: The Best Website Builder for Real Estate Agents (Realtors)

Wix is meant for beginners who have nothing to do with web development. It’s a completely code-free site builder. Wix is known for its huge collection of modern templates and intuitive editor.

Wix Real Estate Templates

Amongst template categories there is a separate category ‘Real Estate’ where you can find a template you like. Now you can choose between Standard Wix Editor and Wix ADI – an intuitive system wizard, which help you with creating a stunning website. It’s really unique Wix feature, that is unparalleled yet.

You may also check out of what real Wix-based sites look like.

Pricing: from $4.50/mo to $24.50/mo with annual subscription. The first paid plan, called ‘Connect Domain‘, allows connecting of own domain to Wix website, but ad-banner is still on it. To remove that annoying advert, you should upgrade your subscription plan to at lest ‘Combo‘, which costs $8.50/mo. If you want to organize online store with real estate ready for sale, than you have to choose ‘eCommerce‘ plan for $16.50/mo.

You may also try to see how your website will look like, using Wix free plan. There is no trial period here, but the most part of features will be unavailable. Besides, until you upgrade to one of premium plans, the web-address of your site will look like username.wix.com/yoursite.

uKit: The Website Builder with High-Quality Templates for Real Estate

uKit is a completely code-free site builder that’s being targeted at small businesses. Its drag-and-drop interface provides a total WYSIWYG experience, making it possible to design and publish a professional-looking site in 30 minutes.

uKit offers various website templates that you can start with; make sure you choose the Real Estate category to get a template better suited to your needs. Once you’ve chosen a theme, you’ll be asked to enter a web address (this can be changed later) and your business information. Upon completion, you’ll be redirected to the control panel where you can start customizing the chosen template using the site builder’s visual interface.

ukit - Real Estate Website

Pricing: uKit has three opportunities of subscription: Premium, Premium+ and Pro plans. They only differs by the number of extra features you will receive.

uKit Pricing

Premium: for $4/mo you receive a full-featured set of tools, which include all needed functional for creating a real-estate website too.

Premium+: for $8/mo in addition to Premium features you gain Live Chat support, access to premium designs and goals in Google Analytics.

Pro: for $12/mo in addition Premium+ you can insert or change a source code of your website. This could be useful when you decide to include IDX listing to your website.

uKit Plans Comparing

uKit has no free plan. But you can test all of its main functions during 7-days trial period and than make a choice. To see what real websites can be made with uKit, take a look at my handpicked collection of uKit website examples. Some of them are of near-to real estate topic.

Specialized Real Estate Website Builders

Along with these versatile website builders that are suitable for creating any type of website, there exist narrowly specialized platforms geared towards building property websites only. These industry-specific site builders are pretty functional, yet in our opinion, they are overpriced.

On the average, it costs about $30-70 a month + set up fee ($100-$200) to run a site on such specialized platform. While this may be an affordable solution for a huge company, independent realtors will find it expensive.

    I hope this would be a nice contribution to the topic http://vevs.website/real-estate-website/ ready-made real estate website, so you would not need to worry about all the many issues that could occur while you are trying to build up your own.

    • Hi, Caroline,

      Thanks for the contribution. I have observed Vevs website builder already in my post here: http://superbwebsitebuilders.com/vevs-review/ and there I’ve noticed that it also suits for Real Estate websites.

      • Caroline Peters

        Oh this is fantastic!

        • Thanks for your opinion, it’s very important for me and my audience. If you have any experience of real-estate websites creation, you can share it with us.

  • Vaida Vaidamin Picker

    Are any of these IDX capability?! I don’t seeyou me tion that. That’s the key for anyone in Real estate, it has to be MLS functional and automattic. There is no use for a good looking template site if it doesn’thave MLS feed.

    • Hi,
      Thanks for your note, I will add this information in my next update. Getting ahead of myself, I will say that you can embed IDX listing to your website, built with Weebly and uCoz website builders. Wix now doesn’t support this function. As to uKit – you can contact its support team and they can help you to integrate IDX into youк website, built with that website builder.

      With regards,
      Howard Steele.
