In our regular blog posts we often look at good examples of nice websites in the Greater Vancouver area that service the public and private sector.
There are thousands of REALTORS in Greater Vancouver. Most seem to have websites; some are nice and some fall flat on their face. Real estate websites are a good example of something we can showcase here at WebsitesVancouver.
Your regular REALTOR website will have some snazzy graphics and images, some contact details and a few property listings widgets to show case properties for sale in different areas. There are a few real estate website platforms available such as MyRealPage and Ubertor. MyRealPage is a fairly customizable platform that allows for realtors to bring their own unique branding and style to their website. The MyRealPage platform also has lots of user-friendly features such as Map Search and MLS number search which can be easily customized and slotted into REALTOR websites.
A good example of a typical REALTOR website on the MyRealPage platform is theRedekops.com. The Redekops are a team of Realtors in the Fraser Valley area specializing in Fraser Heights real estate and have listings for properties for sale all over Surrey and the Fraser Valley area. Their site has an aesthetically pleasing look while offering full functionality and property search features.
Another REALTOR website built on the MyRealPage platform is PrivatePropertyRealty.com. This site focuses on Burnaby real estate listings and in other nearby cities such as Coquitlam, and the Tri-Cities and is a good comparison site to the previously mentioned one as it uses a different color scheme and image gallery style, but again offers full functionality and property search features.
A third example of a REALTOR website on the MyRealPage platform is PortMoodyCondos.ca. As the name suggests, the site focuses on Port Moody condos for sale. The site incorporates all the standard property listing features that MyRealPage offers while keeping a unique look.
WordPress is another platform being used by more and more REALTORS for their websites. Two examples of REALTOR websites using WordPress are CondoScore.ca and SmartHomeSellers.ca both servicing the Greater Vancouver area. Condo Score focuses on Burnaby condos for sale. As well as including MLS listings, Condo Score also allows users to review properties. Smart Home Sellers offers discount real estate packages in Richmond and the Greater Vancouver area. It incorporates all the search features that a regular real estate website has, but also has an online shopping cart function to allow users to purchase realty packages to buy or sell property. Both these sites build on WordPress look great and show how powerful and adaptable WordPress is.
