Using WordPress for your Real Estate website

Rotary Creative Group Rotary Creative Group - 03 October 2018

WordPress is the number one content management system in the world, now powering over 31% of the whole internet ( Whether you are a lover or a hater it’s hard not to admit the versatility of the platform, most of it for FREE too.

The real estate industry is one that should be utilising WordPress more than it is. Here at Rotary Creative Group we have built real estate websites within WordPress, and all are functioning to a high standard.

Yet, it seems that the industry has not yet adapted to WordPress, but why is this?

WordPress is a scale-able platform meaning that your website can grow with your business. If you are a small estate agent aiming to grow and expand, your website can grow with you.

Online site builders are not a good idea

If you try to use an online site builder to craft your website, then eventually you will have trouble when you want to grow. Your domain and website will be likely owned by the website you built it on, so transferring it can be somewhat of a sticky issue.

These platforms also only offer an array of themes, meaning the basic layout will be used for other companies.

Selecting to work with a company that specialises in WordPress means that you can have your website exactly how you envisage it to be.

Examples that work

Many companies opt for standard Real Estate generators that create multiple websites that look the same for different agents. This means that your image isn’t yours and that your website looks the same as many other Estate Agents in the country.

G Herbert Banks are based on the edge of Stourport-on-Severn in Great Witley.  They offer a range of services including Estate Agency.  Their range of services includes but is not limited to Sales, Lettings, Agricultural Properties, Valuations and Planning.

WordPress is able to extend across all these services and provide a website that can create pages, news posts and list properties fluently.
