You own it. There are many website providers for Realtors that make you build on their own proprietary software platform. The problem with this is that you don’t really own your website. You can’t take it with you. You can’t customize it to reflect your brand. What happens to your website if that company goes out of business? When you build your site using WordPress you own it, can upgrade it, personalize it, and take it with you.

It boasts an intuitive content management system that anyone can learn to use. In fact, I taught myself how to use WordPress. Even technological dinosaurs can put new content on their website regularly without hassle. WordPress is a full blown content management system that makes it easy to add or update content to your website at any time, from anywhere. Add listings, post to your blog, edit the content on a page, you’re able to do it all. You don’t need a webmaster to make your updates.

Search Engine Optimization. WordPress is optimized for search engines out of the box. From day 1 to ranking number 1, your website will include all of the necessary components that Google and other search engines need to find and index your listings and web pages. As you probably already know, getting your website indexed by search engines like Google will lead to a steady stream of leads for years to come. If your site isn’t optimized for search engines (and most real estate websites aren’t), then you’re missing out on receiving genuine leads from interested buyers. Soon, you’ll notice that your blog starts getting more traffic, and more and more people are visiting your site.
Beat the bots. Post your listing before it hits the MLS and beat the bots to page 1, number 1. Don’t let scraper Real Estate websites steal your listing’s leads. With the help of ClickSold and WordPress, we’ll help your listing get to the top where it belongs.
