Dubai has been experiencing a rapid growth in the real estate market in the last 20 years. Endless number of eye-catching skyscrapers, luxurious residential and commercial buildings with fancy facilities were developed and built over this period of time. As a consequence, real estate investors from all around the globe rushed into the market to take advantage of such a sweet opportunity. In addition to the investors, many other senior work forces who had selected Dubai as their second home, entered into the market to purchase their dream home. Hence, the real estate market has been quite interesting for all market participants since then.
In such a busy market that makes real estate agents compete hard, going online is a great way to expand their network of customers.

What kind of design should be used for your Real Estate website?
The design should be neat and simple to create a feeling of confidence and trust. No need to mention that a messy design, other than making people feel stressed, would damage your reputation and trustworthiness. Furthermore, pay high attention to the wireframe, as it should be as straightforward as possible. Last element we would like to recommend is to have a dynamic design rather than a static design as the static design doesn’t feel like a professional real estate agency.

Which CMS should be used to build a website for a Real Estate website?
For a regular real estate website, WordPress is recommended. There is no need to make the project complicated with a dedicated CMS.
However, if you want the website for a large real estate and need a private portal, a dedicated CMS is most probably needed.
How long does it take to build a Real Estate website?
Depending on the scale of your project, it would be different. On average, it takes around 3 weeks up to 2 months to create such a website. We suggest you read the How long does it take to create a website in Dubai article for more information.
How much does it cost to build a website for a Real Estate?
The cost of a real estate website depends on the required features. The more features you need on your website, the more money you should invest. As always, we recommend you to work with registered companies. There are freelancers and some Indian companies out there who offer very low prices which are really tempting. However, in most cases, you will end up with a low quality and useless website.
On average, the cost of such a website starts somewhere around AED 5,000, and goes up to AED 20,000, depending on the project.
We suggest you read the How Much Does a Website Cost in Dubai article to understand the website prices.
