How do I Build a Website to Show my Rehab Properties?

I love it when I get questions that give me an opportunity for a new post, which is where today’s post comes from.

Here’s a question coming from one of our members: “Since you guys are down with technology, I’m wondering if you have any suggestions on how can I display my current rehab properties on my own website.”

Well, in fact I do have a few suggestions.

Here’s what not to do: Hire a designer and developer and custom build a website from scratch. Why would you waste your time and money on that when you don’t need to? Instead, head over to StudioPress and get the agent theme. Here’s a link straight to it:

It’s $100 and you’ll be 90% of the way finished to getting your rehab properties for sale online. StudioPress builds rock solid WordPress themes and, in our opinion, is one of the best WordPress theme developers out there.

You’ll need to have a place to host the site, you can probably find cheap hosting for $10 buck a month that will probably be sufficient, but you likely won’t get much support or help. If you are familiar with cPanel, installing WP and configuring things, then go for it.

If not, I suggest heading over to WP Engine. Here’s the link:

Sign up for their cheapest managed WordPress account ($29/mo). That way, you don’t have to worry about security, maintenance updates, messing with cPanel, etc.

You still may need to hire someone to help get things initially set up and do any customization to the look of your new website. But for $100 to $200 upfront (depending on how much customization you do to your theme) and $29/mo you’ll be rocking your property inventory online.

And, when you’re done, feel free to share your website in the comments section below. We’d love to see your successes!

  1. I am a professional web developer and I completely agree with you. Building a custom site will cost thousands of dollars, and you don’t need to spend that kind of money to just list rehab properties.

  2. I can vouch for StudioPress. I have used them and a few of the child themes on various blogs. Easy to work with for customization. I also use OptimizePress for landing pages in some cases.
