To add webpages to your website, simply click on the add button, go to pages and click on it

The next step should prompt you to choose a template for your page. Choose the one you feel is the most relevant.

The page will be created upon you selecting the template and be added to the overhead navigation menu on the home screen.

Adding a section to your new webpage

To create a new section in your webpage, simply hover your mouse where you want to make a section, and a “+” will appear.

Click on the “+” sign to choose a section design, upon selection of which, a new section will be added to your webpage.

Tip: To add a contact form to your website, select the template, that contains a form.

Adding images to your webpages

real estate website image

Wix provides you with its own file management system, where you can store all the images, videos, graphics, etc., that you wish to incorporate into your website.

To add an image, click on an image placeholder, which should immediately take you to the files manager.

In the files manager, select the already uploaded images or import a new image from your computer. Hit “Done,” and your new image will be incorporated.

Create a listing on your real estate website:

Your clients must be able to find and choose the properties that are up for sale from your company.

To do this, a listing needs to be prepared on the buying page where your clients might visit and refer to, before contacting you.

To do this, simply go to the buying/ renting/ selling, add a “featured listing” section to your webpage by clicking on the template that suits you the best.

Change the images and details on the Wix ADI to finalize your buying or listing webpage.

Step 6: Buy a domain for your Real Estate Website

What is a domain?

Like your home has an address, likewise, your newly made real estate website also has an address. A domain is an address that your website resides at on the World Wide Web.

What is hosting?

Hosting is a service that allows you to store files related to your website on a particular server. When the website is called upon by a particular system on the world wide web, the server provides all the information to show the enquirer, the website.

How do I buy a domain?

To address this dilemma, Wix has got your back. Let me tell you whether you use a Wix subdomain, for example:

real estate website image

Or you use a custom domain, for example:

real estate website image

A domain on Wix always comes for free, at least for the first year.

But there Is a catch. If you want to use a Wix subdomain, the whole thing is free, but if you want a custom domain, you need to pay an annual membership fee.

The basic annual membership fee, as of December 2020, is around $ 13.

So now we have two cases:

I want a free domain as a Wix subdomain

Skip to the next section on how to publish your web site

I want a free customized domain

If you want a custom domain, you have to buy a membership with Wix, which will cost you around $13.

Wix offers a free customized domain for a year upon buying their membership.

Choose a domain of your liking, and complete the payment through your preferred mode of payment.

Step 7: Publish your Real-estate Website

This step is the simplest of all. Go to the upper right corner, and hit publish, choose the domain of your preference, either a custom domain or a free Wix subdomain, and hit Publish.

Done! Your newly built Real Estate Website is published on the World wide web, for everyone to see.
