A client’s first stop when doing research is usually the internet, which means your real estate website has a chance to make a first impression on your clients before you get a chance to. 

Good news: you don’t have to be a tech wizard to build the best real estate website in your area. Using the right tools can make it easy. 

We have spent hundreds of hours comparing and ranking the best real estate website builders based on a comprehensive look at features, integrations, IDX functionality, and price points. Here are the top real estate website builders to use to build your brand.

Best Real Estate Website Builders for 2023

Best Overall Real Estate Website Builder: CINC

Top Features: Full-service, fully integrated systems with targeted marketing tools, team management tools

Why we chose it: CINC offers performance, simplicity and convenience in your IDX website.  Designed by high-performing agents, it’s an all-in-one solution that delivers a slick, customer-facing experience….sure, but it’s also a powerful marketing platform that can generate free and pay-per-click leads plus nurture them through behavior-driven follow-ups.  IDX listings presentation, lead generation, and nurture all work seamlessly without agents having to stitch all the pieces together.

They mostly source their leads from Google and Meta (Facebook and Instagram). Lead generation is hyper-local and takes full advantage of technology to provide you with quality leads and data.

CINC offers a host of automated tools for you and your team, including automated email and text campaigns. Plus, you’ll get smart suggestions after every communication you have with potential clients as well as former clients on the best ways to convert. There’s also ListCast, an AI tool that advertises targeted, personalized recommendations to potential leads.

Their Seller Suite gathers insights into seller opportunities to help you improve contact and close ratio with seller leads. Once captured, you’ll have automated follow-up, which includes a welcome email, home value report, and more.

CINC makes it easier to facilitate collaboration and increase productivity as a team. They have automated lead routing to pair new leads with the right agent. They have the added benefit of a feature-rich backend that includes agent accountability and intelligent team management tools. Activity tracking is simple across channels and team members.

CINC also offers the PROLINC Referral Network, which includes every CINC user in North America. Here, you can receive referrals from other agents in different locations. PROLINC provides you with referral leads who are ready to convert.

It’s a worthwhile investment for teams looking for an all-in-one platform to convert paid leads. While subscriptions can get expensive, their multiple lead sources and team management tools can help busy teams streamline their approach. There’s no better option for small teams looking to increase their lead generation, conversion, and sales. It’s also perfect for teams looking to scale their business with a great ROI.

And, unlike many other website builders, you have complete ownership of your website! You can easily move it off their platform if you ever wanted to (which you probably won’t).

With AgentFire, you have three real estate website builder options: custom, semi-custom, and “Express Setup.” With custom, you can build and customize your website using their easy site editor. Semi-custom offers three starting points for you and dedicated designers to customize for your brand. The Express Setup plan will get you a website that is ready to go in 48 hours, all designed based on your answers to a few questions. Their websites fully integrate with your preferred CRM, too.

The biggest advantage of AgentFire is its hyperlocal focus. Home Junction provides site visitors with data about local communities, such as average sale price, local schools, and even restaurant reviews provided by Yelp. The ClickMaps add-on allows you to design a map that takes users to specific community pages. Their property listings are powered by Showcase IDX.

AgentFire has other features, too, like integrated landing pages and lead magnets. They even have a CTA system that has a chat tool and opt-in pop-ups. There are also plenty of other paid add-ons, called Power Ups. These include a home valuation tool, a logo generator, ADA Compliance tools, and copywriting services for web pages and blog content.  

Ultimately, AgentFire offers a hyperlocal website with plenty of features for a reasonable price point.  And, if it’s hard to decide on a website provider, remember that you can build your real estate website with AgentFire and move it to another provider easily because of WordPress CMS.

Best for Teams: Real Geeks

Why we chose it:  If you’re looking for an all-in-one solution to maximize your presence online, Real Geeks has you covered. Real Geeks is an end-to-end lead generation solution that offers an IDX website, a CRM, and paid lead solutions.

One of their greatest features is their high-converting IDX websites with forced registration. The sites are fully customizable and offer a blogging tool and calls to action (CTAs). They’re always rolling out new features and have tons of templates to choose from. Visitors can easily search for listings and locate them with their dynamic map functions. 

Some other features of their real estate website builder include A/B testing for landing pages, automatic MLS updates every 15 minutes, and SEO tools. Real Geeks websites have tremendous SEO ranking possibilities.  

Real Geeks also has a solid CRM that works in tandem with your custom site.

Another great advantage of Real Geeks is their lead capture tools, especially their home valuation landing page to capture selling leads. Much like Zillow or, the tool is built into your website, and visitors can enter their contact information to receive an estimate. They also offer market reports tailored to specific areas, which are also great lead magnets. 

Real Geeks ensures that your website has the potential to be highly trafficked with a full suite of tools and unique features to help you along the way.

Best for Buyer Leads: Ylopo

ylopo logo
Top Features: Social media advertising capabilities, easy-to-use dashboard

Why we chose it: Ylopo is a lead generation solution that offers a lead generation website and marketing suite. It provides a branded website, nurturing tools, dynamic ads, and campaign management.

Ylopo lets agents create polished websites with a range of templates powered by Squarespace (a powerhouse in online marketing). It makes customization easy, and every website is totally mobile-friendly.

The full-service plan includes a branded IDX website, Facebook ads, and a transparent, control-based experience with Mission Control. It’s definitely worth the investment if you have a strong follow-up strategy for the leads you will generate.

The icing on the cake? Facebook ads.  Facebook ads are where Ylopo really shines. They connect your MLS to Facebook and target specific demographics based on it. Your potential clients can look up updated and accurate property listings right from Facebook. They also use video ads to post your listing videos directly to your social media feed. And then of course – you can convert those Facebook visitors to clients via your Ylopo real estate lead generation website.

One of the best features for Facebook ads is Listing Rocket. Listing Rocket automatically detects when you have a new listing and creates a series of ads for every stage of the listing life cycle. Every time the MLS updates information for a  listing, Listing Rocket will automatically adjust its shared ad. It tracks listing engagement, too, so you can keep your sellers up to date. 

The Mission Control dashboard makes it easy to observe and modify campaigns once they are up and running. Here, you can see how much your campaigns cost and adjust your spending as needed. This is an especially useful feature for those who want to see their returns from Facebook leads.

Ylopo Pros
  • Great for promoting new listings
  • Facebook ad capabilities
  • Very affordable
Ylopo Cons
  • No native CRM
  • Best for buyer leads (not as good for sellers, yet)

Honorable Mentions

We had a high bar in picking the best of the best website builders. These website builders didn’t make the cut (frankly, they’re not as great as our top picks – but were also considered).

Showcase IDX

Top Features: Drag and drop widget and shortcode features for ease of use

Why we chose it: Showcase IDX is more expensive than other plug-in options, but it has the features to back it up. One stand-out is polygon search available on mobile devices.

Showcase IDX stands out for its great looking map search, user experience and individual property listings. It allows you to tweak maps, so they match the color scheme of your site, a feature most plug-ins don’t offer. The widgets & shortcodes Showcase IDX offers allows you to drag and drop elements such as map search, listings by zip code and more on any page of your website.

Showcase also offers advanced features such as polygon search but takes it one step further with a polygon search for mobile. It allows you to draw a search area on to the map quickly and easily and it is more responsive than other polygon search tools. The plug-in stands out for its listing page extras adding out of the box items like walk score, bike score, private commenting and sharing, recent activity, MLS info, market snapshot, and local demographics.

Other outdated IDXs and many all-in-one tools use iFrames and subdomains. Research shows that Google hates them and they make it hard to make the listings feel like they’re part of your actual site. Showcase IDX was built with SEO in mind and work differently than every other IDX. The proprietary technology included makes your search and listing data appear as native site-wide content.

Most other IDXs are known to have long wait times to even hear a response from support, much less receive a resolution. The reviews for Showcase IDX frequently talk about how they answer the phone and are happy to do a screen share to support both agents and web developers.

Other IDXs see 60% – 94% of qualified leads still go to Zillow or other portals to do their searches. Even Real Geeks still showed 47.5% of visitors go to another site to perform their search. Showcase IDX only saw a leakage of just 4.3%, which means Showcase IDX retains 9.8x more clients than competitors.

Showcase IDX Pros
  • Extensive listing page extras
  • Polygon search for mobile devices
  • Great look with customizable maps
Showcase IDX Cons
  • Package choices mean you may not be able to access certain features unless you pay more for them
  • Not a complete website developer

Top Features: Impressive web designs, completely self-paced

Why we chose it: Duda is known for the extensive features it offers when it comes to website design, even outside of real estate.  Compared to other real estate website builders though, there are many more widgets you can add to make your site interactive, which will come in handy as there are no integrated IDX capabilities.  If you like to tinker, Duda is your best choice.

Duda has around a hundred templates available to get you started. There are even a handful of templates specifically designed for real estate. Once you pick one, all you have to do is customize it to your liking. They have an easy drag-and-drop editor that’s meant for web development novices. You can also easily add new sections like a testimonial page, gallery, or contact form. 

Duda integrates with a range of tools so you can add as many apps and widgets to your site as you like. Because IDX does not come with Duda by default, you’ll need to add it yourself, which shouldn’t be a problem since Duda integrates with IDX providers, like IDX Broker. You can even create your own widgets if you wish, though you might need some tech knowledge for that. Luckily, with Duda, you have access to their online tutorials for a full year after enabling their service.

You can even integrate Facebook ads directly with your real estate website, just in case you’re also expanding your digital marketing efforts.

What to look for in a real estate website builder

There are a few core things that are absolute must-haves you need to be thinking about your real estate website. There are thousands of features out there, and it can get overwhelming when comparing – but relax – you don’t need ALL the features. These are the ones that are table stakes to growing your real estate business. In other words – it’s impossible to have the best real estate website in your are WITHOUT crushing these next few factors.

IDX Capability 

Internet Data Exchange (IDX) is a term used to describe how property listings are displayed on websites. With IDX, you can integrate listings from the MLS database on your website. Basically, IDX creates a connection between your own branded real estate website and the MLS. 

Why is that important? IDX allows property listings to be updated every few hours, meaning visitors always get up-to-date information about what listings are available at any given time. Sites like Zillow don’t use IDX, instead opting for things like brokerage syndication, which means their listings aren’t as accurate. Because the data is constantly flowing in, IDX keeps your site current all the time – so you can spend less time website building, and more time selling real estate.

This is the reason real estate agents need specific real estate website builders vs. general tools meant for other industries. If you don’t have IDX capabilities, you won’t have the competitive edge that accurate data can bring. Most website builders have this in real estate, but not all – make sure you’re choosing one that does so you can take advantage of all IDX offers.

CRM integrations

Having the best real estate website in your area isn’t enough. As a real estate professional, you probably know all the advantages a real estate CRM can bring to the table. It’s a central hub to store prospect data, track customer interactions, and share that information with business partners. 

When you integrate your real estate CRM with a Content Management System (CMS), functionality becomes seamless. A CRM integration can help you improve the buyer and seller experience and target follow-ups to leads. Combining your customer data from a CRM with your real estate website’s analytics tools is a gold mine for creating selling opportunities.

Plus, by keeping all of your data in one place, you reduce the time you would otherwise need to maintain both services.

You probably already have a CRM that you like. To make full use of it, make sure that your website builder integrates with the CRM that you use to store customer data, otherwise, you may have to use two different services. 

Create follow-up opportunities with potential leads

The biggest advantage of having your own branded real estate website is your ability to convert visitors into potential leads by capturing contact information in a lead form.

Lead capture tools like landing pages and capture forms encourage prospects to leave behind their names, phone numbers, and emails. It looks a lot like pop-ups that you may have seen on retail websites that prompt you for similar information. The website builder you choose should allow you to customize these lead captures so you can gather the information you’re most likely to use. 

Strategies for capturing these leads will vary from agent to agent. You may prefer persistent lead captures that regularly prompt visitors to share contact info, or you may err on the side of a more relaxed approach. 

Whatever strategy you opt for, you should be able to adjust accordingly. 

A user-friendly experience for you and your potential leads

If you’re worried about needing a background in coding or web design, don’t!

Most of these tools are designed to do the heavy technical lifting. Typically, they’ll feature drag-and-drop design tools that allow you to design a polished website with text, images, and interactive elements. 

If you’re looking for extra support, opt for a real estate website builder that offers a range of real estate templates for you to choose from. This can be a lot easier to use than uploading a template from a third-party site. The right tool should make customizing these templates painless so that you can add custom branding.

Most website builders offer additional support in the form of video tutorials or extensive customer support. If this is your first time creating and maintaining a website, opting for services with these features may be a smart move. 

Make your website stand out.

Be sure that you keep some of these tips in mind as you start creating:

Don’t forget to show off! 

Provide client testimonials and reviews. This is also a great time to establish yourself as an expert in the community. Share details about events and local news on your site to draw clients to your community and establish your credibility.

Let the numbers talk.

Sharing statistics can help you demonstrate your success in an easily consumable way. Some agents share information about dollars they’ve saved clients or average listing times. This is a great way to market yourself and provide proof of your services. 

Look for a service that makes it easy to integrate things like graphs, charts, and images on your website. 

Keep your website accessible. 

The National Association of Realtors has recently reported that almost 70% of new home shoppers use their phones in their search for a home, so it would be more than wise to keep your content mobile-friendly. 

With a generation that is on the go, ensuring that your real estate website offers landing page creation is absolutely critical. Seriously. Before picking a website builder, make sure the sites they build look good on phones, tablets, and computers. 

Your website is an additional opportunity to ensure that you serve all clients fairly and adequately. Accessibility tools like speech-to-text, alternate text captions, or translation services can make a huge difference for some clients.

Choose the real estate website builder that’s right for you

Take full advantage of demos and trials to try before you buy. Remember that website design comes with maintenance, so your decision should be carefully considered. 

As with almost everything else in your real estate career: ask other real estate professionals to weigh in, too! They may be interested in features you haven’t considered or require a platform with thorough support options. Ultimately, it’s your real estate business, though – so be sure to prioritize all the features you want.

Not all real estate websites are the same, and of course, neither are the tools you use to build them.  Choosing the right real estate website builder is the first step in creating a polished site that will move your clients to close. We hope that our guide has made the decision-making process easier.

Our Methodology:

Our in-house real estate experts spent hundreds of hours researching, scoring, and ranking the top real estate website builders on the market. We looked at everything from pricing and ease of use to the specific real estate industry features that are available. We’ve ranked and rated each website builder on 5 different factors to come up with the very best real estate website builders to boost your business. The short version of factors considered are: 

  1. Cost: Not all real estate website builders are created equal, so it’s important to look at what’s included with your purchase. Some companies charge upwards of $300/month for outdated templates, which is why we take into account the price of the service and compare it to the features and extra resources provided to help each agent succeed.
  2. Features & user friendliness: Different real estate website builders come with different feature sets, some more important for teams than solo agents. Additionallyagents don’t have a lot of extra time to learn a complicated website builder, so the more it just works with their natural workflow, the better. That’s why we’ve rated the tools that are easier for agents to navigate without a tech team higher than the ones that are more complicated to use.
  3. Lead quality: Leads are the lifeblood of any business as they help provide a steady flow of predictable revenue. However, some website builders are more effective than others. The type of leads you need may vary depending on the type of business you are operating. Real estate agents want to be able to bring in an even mix of buyer and seller leads that will convert quickly – which is why this is a big factor we’ve considered.
