I have had the same template site for years and although it has made a decent return for me over the years I feel I can do better. I am going to have a custom site built down the road and have already spoken to a webmaster about it but for now I am interested in a Point2Agent professional site which I have already purchased.
My dilemma is that the learning curve and the talent it takes to build a quality site is quite extensive contrary to popular belief. I spoke to a Point2Agent user today that has a wonderful productive site. I asked him how many hours he has spent working on his site and he responded by saying "Hundreds"...Ouch! I need to sell real estate, not work on a website! Besides, I don't know what I am doing.
In looking for some help with my Point2Agent site a while back I was quoted over $3,000 which would buy me a decent custom site. Web masters are telling me I am crazy to pay that kind of money to have a template site like Point2Agent designed especially where I would not own the photos or text created.
I spent hours going into the message board of Point2Agent today and found some answers here and there but a lot of my answers were in computer lingo that I just plain do not understand such as Iframes, etc. when trying to find out how to add IDX technology to my site.
I am feeling like I am in a little boat at sea with no compass and no understanding as to which direction I should row.
Any words of wisdom out there?
