I Saved Money by Making My Own Website to Share My Home Listings

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

I have been working full time to sell homes in our area over the last for years. I have done well at it, but I have been feeling like I could do better in getting my name out there in front of more prospective customers for awhile now. I had been thinking of getting a website, but I know it can be expensive to have someone create one for me. Fellow agents said I should look into real estate website templates so that I can just make one myself. I realized that I wanted to take my time to think about it after talking to some pros who might be able to help me first.

I decided to call a couple of different people in the area who make websites. After explaining what type of website I would be interested in, they both gave me price quotes. I was surprised to learn that it can cost thousands of dollars to have a site created for you. This was simply not something I was prepared to do at the moment. While I was doing relatively well selling houses, I am a single mom and money is very tight.

Thinking about the advice I had received from my fellow agents about making my own website, I jumped online and looked for the templates they had told me about. I am not very technically savvy, and really hoped making my own site would not be hard. I was pleased to learn that for about $20 monthly, I can get a site hosted and I can do the work myself. I don’t need to do anything more than type my information into a template, upload a photo of myself and then upload everything. It only took me about 45 minutes to do, and I saved a lot of money doing it.

One of the great things about some apartments in Lowell, MA is that they allow you to sign a lease that’s really flexible. This recent lease that I’ve signed is going to allow me to do some kitchen remodeling and in turn they’re going to give me a three month break on my rent! That’s kind of great, especially if I decide to stay here for a while! At the point when given the opportunity to redesign a territory of one’s home, the kitchen is generally the first that is picked on the grounds that it is the place a ton of the family spends truly a couple of hours of their day. The majority of their suppers are here, homework is carried out at the kitchen table, the arrangements for dinners are carried out here, and gatherings are held here with different individuals from children to going in-laws.

Beside the living or lounge area, this spot is the most utilized room as a part of the house. (more…)
