Some ideas, but I am sure ou have already thought of them:
A professional looking site with sharp, classic graphics attracts the attention when first logged on.
Once they are on your site, a well organized site with meaningful hierarchy allows ease of navigation. Easy load also saves time when navigate thru the site.
Know the clients you want to attract, and keep the content fresh so they will come back. Add useful information and pictures about the specific territory you want to cover. Blogs with meaning information helps to keep them.
Lots of tools, such as mls links, local government. .school links, news feeds, mortgage calculator, links to other sites, such as Trulia, ..etc Of course, some of the people have talking website or at least thet welcome message - I am not quite sure if I like that personally.
Will be very interested to see your new isite
Would love to hear any addiional feedback, RE Pros and especially consumers!
Tell me anything you don't like or do like about sites you have visited. If it is negative, please describe what it is you dislike, but don't reference the website. If it is positive, feel free to reference the site, or not.
What I like most as a consumer is being able to see if a property is under contract http://(www.bairdandwarner.com).
