Turn Website Visitors into Return Clients with Helpful Widgets

Turn Website Visitors into Return Clients with Helpful WidgetsOnline real estate marketing is about setting yourself apart from the crowd and giving visitors something of value. One thing that consumers will value is a helpful widget. What is a widget? According to Wikipedia a widget “is an interactive virtual tool that provides single-purpose services such as showing the user the latest news, a map program, or a calculator”.

Adding widgets to your Homes Connect website is easy and is a great way to get visitors to return to your website over and over again and they’re free to use on your website or blog! Here are a few notable ones.

  • Commute Time widget-Fifty percent of buyers report that ‘convenience to work’ was the second most significant factor in choosing a home (2013 NAR Survey of Buyers and Sellers). This widget allows buyers to quickly determine the commute times from your listings to their office, school, gym or other destinations.
  • Mortgage Calculator – calculate monthly mortgage payments, estimated taxes and private mortgage insurance costs.
  • Social Network – display social network icons with links to your respective social channels so that visitors can easily and quickly connect with you.
  • Home Values – displays the average sales price in your area and links to other demographic information.

Here’s how to add these cool widgets to your site:

  1. Visit the Homes.com widgets page.
  2. Select the widget you want to add to your website.
  3. Customize the colors and content.
  4. Copy the HTML code that is generated at the bottom of the page.
  5. Paste the code into your website or blog.
