How To Set Up A Real Estate Business Successfully

Technology has become a big part of the modern real estate business. Thanks to the Internet, the entire real estate industry has changed. Using the Web, consumers can do a lot more in the way of real estate research and shopping.

Real estate technology has also changed the way agents conduct their marketing, client communications and general business. The modern real estate agent can use software, virtual tours, blogs, podcasts, and many other technologies that did not exist a few years ago.

To help him get the most out of his real estate business, people has gathered some helpful resources related to all aspects of real estate technology.

A Technology Guide For Real Estate Agents

The initial setup stage is where most folks make their biggest and costliest mistakes. In their excitement, they skip the necessary research and sign on with a designer who can't deliver exactly what they're after.

Or they shell out for a real estate website template, only to realize later that the design can't support their content plans.

Elements Of A Real Estate Website

To have a website live on the Internet, you'll need three primary things :

A web host
A domain name
Web pages

The Web Host

A web host is a company that provides web-hosting services. These companies own servers (extremely powerful computers) that host and serve the files that make up their clients' web pages.

You can create a website on your computer. But you have to put the files onto a web server before anybody can access them over the Internet.

Hosting Providers

Web hosts are a dime a dozen. The trick is to find one that's reliable, easy to use, and with decent customer service. In web host standards, decent customer service means one can actually get somebody on the phone when he has a problem.

The Domain Name

A domain name is simply the name and address of a website.

Getting a domain name is easy. One just goes to any domain registrar (like or Go Daddy) to first see what's available.

The registrar will tell him if a particular domain is taken or available. When one finds an available domain name that he wants, he registers it.


Before spending any money on the real estate website, educate him. Read as much as he can on the subject, and comparison-shop between different vendors. Determine the web goals, and make a list of features he'll need to support those goals. Start small with only a basic plan; he can always add features later as he finds the need for them.
