How to Create a Real Estate Web Team
A real estate website is probably the most important stage in marketing and lead generation nowadays. Every marketing strategy leads to a portfolio or landing page on your website.
Plus, IDX solutions are the only way real estate agents can have access to MLS listings.
Therefore, your real estate web team becomes an agenda you need to properly invest and research on.
There are so many people involved when it comes to creating your real estate web team. From developers to content writers, you may need to be a tech savvy to know who is who.
The number of personnel in this category will depend on the size of your project. Some small websites only have a webmaster and one or two content writers while huge projects could have 50 or more IT experts.
Let’s break it down for you! To better understand everyone’s role, we divided them into three categories:

In this category, you need experienced developers who have a solid knowledge of common languages such as PHP, Python and their frameworks.
To be honest, their level of proficiency should match your projects. Some developers charge a lot and you may not need to go for them.
In many cases, real estate websites outsource their back-end to third party companies. This is due to the costs and complexities involved with back-end development.
