After working hard in my career selling real estate for 20 years, I decided that it was time to run open my own company as a broker. I no longer had the luxury of listing all of my homes that I sell on the corporate website belonging to the company I used to work for, so it was up to me to get things going on my end myself. A buddy of mine said I should just use some real estate website templates online to get the job right, but I wanted to learn how to do everything from scratch.
After a quick trip to the bookstore, I came home with a few books that would help me to learn how to make a great web page. But what I did not understand is that it is a lot harder than it looks. I assumed that I could learn how to do it quickly enough to have my own site up within a weekend. I began reading through the first book on a Friday night. By the time I went to bed that night, I did not feel very good about my prospects with having a page done any time soon. By Sunday night, I knew that I needed help.
On Monday, I began calling local companies that do web page work to find out about costs. I was quoted as much as $8,000 by a variety of companies. Considering that I was just getting started with my own business, I really needed to save money, yet I really needed a website, too. That is when I remembered that I had been previously told about website templates. I figured I should look into it immediately.
I found a company online that not only offers you a variety of templates to choose from, you can also host your page with them, too. It was a great feeling to learn just how easy it is to type in your information and let their system do the hard work for you. I had a new site online within just hours.
