Q: What advice would you give to REALTORS™ about their Real Estate website. What should they keep in mind?

  • Make sure that you do your homework on website providers. Pick one which that is easy to navigate and edit, and above all, a site that can be optimized for search engines
  • If you are transferring an old domain name and web site to a new hosting provider, make sure that “301 redirects” are in place for each page. iHOUSEweb did a good job of doing this so we did not lose previous Google ranking. To be sure, no web site will be great unless there is unique content and someone behind it that will do the extra work it takes to be good. iHOUSEweb gives you that foundation and great on-going support.
