What are the differences between real estate template designs and custom designs?
Real estate templates are pre-designed, affordable, full-featured and easy to set up. Templates are REALTOR® website packages that allow agents to get online quickly. Most of the pages have been created and agents simply have to add content only in pre-defined areas. AgentPro are examples of real estate template designs. Agents choose which design they like best and a project manager works with them to set up the site. AGENT IMAGE™ has a wide selection of designs and releases new REALTOR® web templates often.
There are only two limitations with a truly custom real estate design: time and budget. Custom designs have a unique ‘look and feel’ and can have any real estate marketing tool or feature. Every site is built from scratch and you, the client, own the design. No two are ever the same. They are completely original and usually cost more than real estate web templates because more hours are needed to fully plan, develop and launch custom sites. They do not follow set guidelines and allow agents and designers to really get creative. Clients that choose custom usually are top producers, real estate entrepreneurs, realty companies or branded agents.
How are Semi-Custom designs different from Custom designs?
Semi-custom websites, on the other hand a hybrid between template and custom. They are different from truly custom designs in the sense that they only have a custom home page attached to AgentPro ‘inner’ pages.
