Purchase vs Monthly Subscription
To be successful in a Real Estate business, it becomes understandable how much energy and money goes into maximizing business operations. To run your Real Estate business online, you will need a PC or a mobile device, a domain name, hosting server and professional and an easy to use the real-estate website. Hardware and software must be maintained and updated on a continual basis. To implement any of these, you will require experts to install, configure, test and maintain.
Real Estate websites are mostly available from various website developers as a monthly or yearly subscription plan. In this specific case, the Estate Agent has an ongoing dependency on the developer while using the developer’s software (website) on a rental basis. If the vendor discontinues the service for any reason, the Estate Agent no longer can operate the website and all property listing information is lost. Depending on how the subscription is enforced technically, this injects some considerable uncertainty into whether the website you use today will still be there, to use tomorrow.
At Realty2Go.Net we are aware of the cons when using a Real Estate website on a rental basis (subscription) and are offering all our Realty2Go websites, exclusively as a one-time purchase, based on a personal website license. This means that when you are purchasing any of our websites, the website is yours forever. Ultimately, it is up to you to properly examine the specific needs of your Real Estate business and wisely decide what would be best.
