Why WordPress?

WordPress …

has long been popular as a platform on which to build websites. The reasons are many, but you’ll most often hear people cite affordability and ease of use as the main reasons. These are both true. There are also a multitude of plugins now available for WordPress, meaning that just about anything you dream up for your site can be done. Using WordPress for real estate sites makes perfect sense.

It’s affordable.

WordPress is a very cost effective website solution, because the content management system is free and open source. This may not mean a lot to you now, but trust me, this is important: WordPress won’t start charging you if you get too big (there’s no such thing!), and it doesn’t restrict code access. You won’t pay a licensing fee to use WordPress. Ever.

It’s accessible.

WordPress puts the control in your hands, and this is a BIG deal. Having to call up and pay your web builder every time you want to make a change to your website is a pain, and it’s completely impractical for a real estate professional whose entire business growth relies on regular change and updates. With WordPress sites, you can add and remove content and edit content easily.

It’s easy.

It’s been said many times now, “If you can do it in Word, you can do it in WordPress.” That right there should ease your mind. If your Internet skills are limited, but you know your way around your word processing software, it’ll be a piece of cake. And, WordPress continues to develop its CMS, adding features and functionality all the time.

It’s findable.

This is an important point (aren’t they all?). WordPress has been designed to be easily found by Google and other search engines. Even without adding SEO plugins, such as Yoast, WordPress’s easy linking, permalinks and simple design have led it to being called “a great choice” by the head of Google’s web spam team. WordPress is good for SEO.

It’s flexible.

WordPress pages render in both HTML and CSS. You don’t have to know what that means to understand its impact: Your real estate WordPress site will show up on a desktop computer, a tablet, an iPhone, Blackberry or Android. Not only that, it translates easily to text only and other alternative browsers.

As a real estate agent, you have to have a presence online. It’s really non-negotiable at this point. But even if you know next to nothing about building a website and have a limited budget, you don’t have to sacrifice functionality, professionalism or attractiveness. WordPress is the solution. And PressRE gets it done for you.

You can leave the theme installation, content modification and custom graphic design to the pros while you keep busy doing what you do best – selling homes and properties. WordPress is easy for many, but PressRE makes it easy for ALL by designing, developing and maintaining a custom, one-of-a-kind real estate agent website FOR YOU at unbeatable prices.
