Earlier this month, Placester released a brand new real estate theme that should fit the needs of today’s tech-savvy real estate agents looking to gain an edge. Being called Plymouth, what makes this new real estate theme special is that it’s Placester’s first fully responsive real estate website design.
In case you’re a bit behind when it comes to some of the latest advancements in website technology, responsive design websites are the answer to giving today’s internet users and home buyers searching the web on mobile devices a better browsing and navigating experience. Should someone reach your website using a smart phone or tablet for example, rather than having your entire site shrink down to fit the screen of these smaller devises, a responsive design website will automatically adjust a site’s content depending on the device and screen size in which you’re using to access the site. So in other words, how your website appears on an iPhone or iPad may be somewhat different given the variance in screen size or position you’re holding such device.
With the emergence of Zillow Premier Agent websites and numerous other real estate web companies offering state-of-the-art website products, it seems as if many real estate professionals in the business have really gotten away from using other WordPress themes for their business websites. But if you’re comfortable using WordPress and aren’t content using a Premier Agent site from Zillow, the Plymouth theme may not only be the solution for your real estate business, but the best option currently available.
Along with being a responsive design website, the Plymouth theme has full IDX capability and offers some quality search engine optimization features that many other real estate WordPress themes simply don’t have. As noted on the theme’s description page, every Placester website will automatically create a landing page for each property listing and neighborhood in your local MLS, which not only is beneficial for SEO purposes, but for the user experience as well. Other notable attributes include natural language property URLs, keyword tagging, and website sitemaps that are also indexed by search engines.
