Half of all homebuyers use a mobile device to browse through the internet and search listings. Therefore, in order to reach those prospective customers, you must make your website mobile-friendly. Opt for a responsive design that adapts itself automatically to different screen sizes without impacting the readability of text and quality of images.
Pay Special Attention to Content Placement
Make sure that you add content your webpages that in such a manner that your customer can get all the required information at a single glance. Now, this isn’t to say that your website should not have a scroll bar at all. Instead, the purpose is to include important information, such as your contact details, discounts and promotions, and a navigation bar at the top of your website so that it’s easily viewable to your customers.

Contact form remains one of the primary lead generation tools for most real estate agents who want to build a rewarding Georgia real estate career. When designing your contact form, you may find it tempting to capture as much information as possible about a prospect by adding more fields to your contact form.

The purpose of designing a real estate website is to make it easier for your prospects to find their dream home. To ensure this, offer your visitors the flexibility to filter listing search results on various parameters, such as neighborhood, property type, zip code, minimum square feet area, maximum price, etc.
