Are you a real estate agent looking to market yourself effectively? Having a personal website is a must! Even though you may have a presence on other platforms like Facebook or LinkedIn, it is crucial to have a dedicated website that represents you and your brand.

But don't worry, creating a personal website doesn't have to be complicated or expensive. With website builders like Wix and Squarespace, you can easily design a sleek and professional website without any coding or technical knowledge. In this article, we will focus on Wix, a website builder that caters specifically to real estate professionals.

Getting Started with Wix

First things first, you'll need to create a Wix account. The good news is, you can start for free! While Wix offers premium features and custom domain names at a cost, you can get started and work on your website without spending a penny.

Creating an account is simple. Just visit www.wix.com and select "Start Now" on the home screen. Once you've created an account, Wix gives you two options: start from scratch using their website editor or use their Artificial Design Intelligence (ADI) feature to generate your site automatically.

If you want to design your website from scratch, choose the Wix editor. But if you prefer a template that allows for customization, go for the ADI option. Wix has pre-designed templates specifically tailored for real estate agents, making it even easier for you to get started.

Choose a Template Choose a template that suits your style.

To make your website building experience even more effortless, Wix offers a feature that allows them to gather information about you from the internet. Don't worry, nothing is published immediately. Wix simply uses this data to create a "first draft" of your site.

Wix Auto-Fill Let Wix do the work for you.

Once you're satisfied with the initial setup, click the "Start" button. Select a theme that matches your style, and watch as your homepage comes to life.

Customizing Your Site

Now that you have your basic website structure, it's time to make it your own. In the Wix editor, you can easily customize different sections of your site, including photos, copy, and layout. For example, you can replace the stock photo with your own headshot, move and edit buttons, and update the text.

Customize Your Site Make your website reflect your unique style.

Creating additional content sections is a breeze. Just click on the circular "plus" symbol, and you'll find various options tailored to real estate, such as buying process, selling process, and properties for sale. Wix even provides stock images and pre-written copy to give you a head start.

Add Content Sections Easily add new content sections to your website.

If you want to take customization to the next level, Wix offers advanced options like changing fonts, customizing colors, adding animations, and even integrating videos.

Advanced Customization Get creative with advanced customization options.

Publishing and Upgrading

Once you're satisfied with your website or at least ready to showcase it to the world, it's time to hit that "Publish" button. Your site is now live for everyone to see! While you can publish your site for free, we highly recommend upgrading to Wix's Combo tier for just $10.00 per month.

Upgrading to the Combo tier removes Wix branding from your site and provides you with a free custom domain name. Having your own domain name adds a professional touch to your website and helps build trust with potential clients.

Publish and Upgrade Publish and upgrade to make your site even better.

Final Thoughts

When it comes to building a website, Wix is an excellent choice for real estate professionals. With its Artificial Design Intelligence feature and user-friendly editor, you can create an impressive site in no time. From design suggestions to customizable layouts, Wix makes it easy for you to showcase your expertise and attract clients.
