How Much Does An Apartment Locating Website Cost?

WordPress Theme For Apartment Locators

WordPress is one of the most popular website platforms, and has hundreds of free and paid real estate theme's. Unfortunately, none of them were designed for apartment locators. We conducted extensive research into the real estate theme's available, and selected one that has the most flexibility and functionality. We customized that theme for apartment locators, and we only sell it to our clients.

Get Results Quicker

The longer it takes to launch your site, the longer it takes to generate revenue. We've already customized the theme with apartment fields and listing layout, so you save 6-8 weeks over hiring another developer to do the custom work. You should expect to pay a developer $10,000 - $15,000 in design and data hours to duplicate our theme. Other website developers have a costly learning curve to use your WordPress theme, implement our data feed, and understand what an apartment locator does. This learning curve is passed on to you by either never finishing your site and walking away from your final payment, or asking you for more money. Our clients don't have any of these problems.

Proprietary Design

We are the only company that sells an apartment database to locators, and we designed the only apartment locating website theme for WordPress. Our proprietary design is only available to our clients, we don't sell it on the WordPress marketplace. Your website is connected to our IDX. You login to your IDX dashboard at https://apartmentidx.info/ and choose your neighborhoods and featured properties. Our Apartment IDX database is the only one of it's kind which makes the process of designing your website predictable.

Locating Experts

Many of our apartment locating clients come to us after hiring another web design company who can't deliver a final product. One client had been waiting 14 months and still didn't have a finished website. We have been designing software for locators since 2005, and building websites since 2015; we are experts in the industry. We have a proven track record with our clients that demonstrates our ability to deliver your website on a timeline. Our pre-written homework assignments reduces the planning phase by 2-3 weeks.

Outside The Box

Multi-Market Website

The cost to add more than one market to your website is $1,000 to purchase an additional apartment database, and $50 per hour.

Non-Existent Markets

We can access the data for practically any U.S. city through our existing data feed relationships. If the market you need for your website is not listed, we can obtain the data and images in approximately 3-4 weeks. We will provide an actual quote after we contact our data provider for the area.

The cost to purchase the data and images depends on the number of total apartments. Smaller markets average $750-$1,000; larger markets average $2,000-$3,000.

Reproduce Existing Websites

If you have an existing website, it's critical we don't disrupt your existing SEO. If you've already invested in writing unique content to improve your page ranking, it would be catastrophic to lose your place when you rebuild your site. This happens frequently when you hire a cheap and inexperienced designer.

The cost to reproduce your existing website content to your new website is $30 per hour.

Apartment Locating Website Design Services

Whether you are a dry cleaner, mechanic, or an apartment locator - you need a website that sells your service. The effectiveness of your website (or lack thereof) plays a major role in potential clients decision making. Google claims you have 10 seconds to convince customers to stay on your website by giving them the product and price they are looking for. As an apartment locator, that means searchable apartment listings.

If a home buyer was searching the internet for a Realtor in their area, and found a beautiful and professional website that clearly explained all of the benefits of working with this Realtor. The Realtor has all the credentials needed and many testimonials from past clients that they do a great job representing buyers. However, there isn't a list of homes for sale or an integration with the local MLS so the buyer can search listings. That home buyer is going to hit the back button and go to the next Realtor in the search results because the Realtor didn't provide the product and price they are looking for. A website isn't a resume, it's an online store, and you must provide the inventory if you want customers to contact you.

You have two options to build a searchable apartment database. Manually type the information into a database, or purchase our apartment data feed. We offer three full service apartment locating website packages that includes the searchable apartment database. The database is the most difficult part of building a website. There are many real estate WordPress themes to choose from, and thousands of WordPress website designers. A large percentage of our clients come from frustrated apartment locators who have hired a developer that never completes the website correctly. Most developers under estimate the scope of work, make unrealistic deadlines, and then blame the client that they can't complete the website. Building apartment locating websites is all we do, so our process is streamlined and our deadlines are predictable.
