A website is one of your business’s most valuable assets, and now that the Internet is being used by 90% of people searching their next home (NAR), optimizing it should be a top priority. In addition to using a responsive design platform to make your site user-friendly, having tools that provide added value to your visitors will increase the effectiveness of your website.
With this in mind, Homes.com created a library of widgets that you can integrate into your personal website. These tools will allow you to engage with more consumers and are not only easy to install, they’re also free. You’re the local expert, but you may not always be available for clients or prospects when they are seeking additional information about your listings. This is when you’ll be glad that you installed Homes.com’s widgets to your site, as they provide answers to many of the common questions that potential clients tend to ask. Here are some details about our most popular widgets!
As with any purchase, clients will want to know if they are getting a deal on the house they will soon be calling home. This is where the Homes Values Widget comes in handy, as clients and prospects can use this tool to quickly search for property values in the areas surrounding your listing. This not only provides them with the information they’re looking for, but positions you as an even more valuable asset in their homebuying experience.
The Commute Time Calculator will address the age-old question of “what’s around here?” It’s inevitable that when someone is considering moving into a new home that they’ll be wondering how far the property is from their office, parks, grocery stores, restaurants and any other places they frequent in their everyday lives. Luckily, all they have to do is go to your website!
Want to showcase your top listings? The Featured Listing Widget allows you to include the properties that you believe clients and prospects would be most interested in right on your Homes Connect profile. Not only will this tool provide more exposure to your favorite properties, but it will keep visitors on your website even longer!
Make connecting with your clients and prospects through social media even easier with the Social Network Widget. This tool displays all of your social icons directly on your website, allowing visitors to see which networks you are active on and providing additional ways for them to connect with you! It also serves as a great way to stay top of mind in your local market!
These are just a few of the Homes.com Widgets that are available for you to download for FREE. Add these tools to your website and blog to simplify the homebuying process even more! Also be sure to check out the other consumer resources that can be downloaded and customized to include your own branding!
