Real estate is an expensive yet important purchase. Everyone wants to have a cozy apartment or a big house, and online search is what many users prefer these days. The Web is stuffed with so many useful websites, where clients can find a real estate agency in any city and country, see the property images on their screens and make an appointment with a broker in a matter of seconds.
I have looked for the most well-designed real estate websites and gathered a good collection for you. But before you will observe all these designs, give me a few minutes to describe the most used-for features on this kind of websites.
Large Header Image/Photographic Background
Big images in the Header section of the home page (or a fixed photographic Header for the entire site) are frequently used details by many real estate agents. It helps to attract users and inspire them for further site browsing. It works especially good if to place a high-quality image of the property you want to sell.
A real estate website is nothing without a photo gallery. This is why users go online and browse tons of similar websites. A photo gallery allows clients to pick a house without leaving their computers.
Many realtors’ webpages have quick forms to fill in order to find a property in a certain area, or at an appropriate price. This feature helps users to get oriented on a site, and what can be better than satisfied clients?
Such colors, as creamy, light blue or green, brown (sand shade), yellow are pastel colors and these are often used on real estate websites. It is caused by the necessity to bring visitors to a good mood and showcase the photo galleries in the best perspective.
Another variant of designing a real estate website is to use dark blue or black. Such color palettes are rare, but successful they are because of the contrast: images look pretty cool on the dark background, plus light typography can be applied on the site.
