experience with real estate websites

Greetings! I am wondering if anyone on your team has experience working with real estate websites. I am an owner of a SEO/Online marketing/Web design company and I must make a decision tomorrow on what platform to choose. My options are:

1. IDX Broker - Runs with WordPress, and I have full customization, very affordable starting at $99 and low monthly fee. http://www.idxbroker.com/


2. Real Estate Webmasters - No access to CSS or HTML, so minimal work. Minimum start is $2,000 and $200 monthly. Highly spoken of, and top real estate companies and my city are using them. http://www.realestatewebmasters.com

Now just because the top real estate companies in my city use Real Estate Webmasters, it could just be that they don't have experience to work on custom pages and content. And they have the budget to pay high priced companies.

Here is one users experience with both, but it is outdated from 2014 - http://www.greatcoloradohomes.com/blog/my-journey-through-idx-options-and-a-quick-review-of-real-estate-webmasters.html

What is your opinion, as a developer team? Have you seen basic wordpress real estate websites do well based on good SEO knowledge?

    Hi Joseph

    Hope you had a wonderful day.

    I don't have much experience working with Real Estate sites. I've made couple of them but that was 2 years back. About those two providers you mentioned, I've not used any of their services. So can't actually tell you which one is better.

    As you asked "Have you seen basic wordpress real estate websites do well based on good SEO knowledge?", I believe with proper SEO, any site can do well. If your developer knows basic rules of SEO and follow standard guidelines, I don't see any reason of that site not doing good in business.

    However, I am keeping this ticket open. Other users might have their valuable experiences to share.

    Have a nice day. Cheers!
