Real Estate Website Designers

RealEstate ABC earns no fees or income by recommending web site designers.  We do have personal and business relationships with many web developers regarding links & networking, the agent directory and the newsletter/content program.  Some of those developers are listed here.  Some listed here have no relationship with us at all.  We just like them.

Recommended  Industry Leaders

The "Major Leaguers" of real estate web design.  We have long-established relationships with management at these three top companies.    They do a great job and we get along with top management.

Best Image

Number 1 Experts "Diamond" sites are available for approximately $3990.  Best Image does handles custom graphics for you and they advertise all over the web, plus they list your site in various directories and search engines.

   

iHouse

iHouse sites have a low start-up fee of $98, plus $39 per month hosting.  By paying advance, you can save $70 off the first year hosting fees.  One thing they do differently is give you a "free test drive" allowing you to start using a site almost right away without cost, just to see if you like it.

   
 

Recommended Up-and-Comers: 

These are companies where we like their product, but they may not yet be on the radar screen where you would have noticed them.

Nor only does this company create visually attractive and informative web sites, but they specialize in search engine optimization.  Cost information will follow.

   

Link-U-Systems

A Link-U-Realty web site starts at $399 with a $29 monthly hosting fee.  As a special, they are auctioning sites on E-bay with a beginning price of $239.  The sites are rich in design features, including everything you would expect to see on a real estate site.

   

Realty Pros

Web design starts at $350, with $29.95 per month for hosting.  IDX and other stuff costs extra, just as it does for everyone.  They have both template sites and custom sites, with actual real estate professionals on the staff so that they create truly useful sites.

   

Blitz Development

The "Basic" site costs $150 for startup and $50 monthly for hosting.  Next step up is the "Plus" site for only $100 more.  The sites are supposed to focus on lead generation and they do offer a money-back guarantee.

YourWebDesigner.com

A "most favorite" of our site, this company did the basic design of the RealEstate ABC logo that appears atop the page.  Not only will they do custom sites, but you can choose a "web site to go" that already has most design elements created, but allows for customization in certain areas.  Cost information is forthcoming.

   

Brain Frog

The sample site we reviewed was simple, elegant, easy to navigate, yet it contained most everything that would interest a web visitor.  A similar site with IDX access and extras, would cost between $2000 and $2500.  Database work or more technical stuff is billed at $65 per hour.

   

The WebMeister

The WebMeister has been doing web sites for years, including real estate sites.  A basic site starts at $500, plus $20 monthly hosting.

They appear to have two paid versions and one free version.  For free, you get a 3rd level domain and they earn income through sponsorships from outside parties.  At $29.95 monthly, you get most options you would need as an agent.  There is a $99 monthly option, too.  No mention of setup fees so far.  We'll check.
