Why Real Estate Agents Must Have a Mobile Optimized Website

Statistics show that only 1-2% of all .com, .net and .org website domains currently have a mobile optimized version. Research has also shown that by the year 2013, more people will be visiting websites on mobile devices than a normal PC

As it currently stands Apple devices do NOT support flash. Flash is a technology that adds animation, video, and other interactivity to web pages. You have probably seen those websites where things slide in, slide out, and move around.
These websites have been built using flash. When a user on an Apple iPad, iPhone, or iPod visits one of those websites, all they will see is a blank screen asking them to upgrade their flash player. This is death to any business including a real estate.
Having business website unavailable to a large proportion of mobile users is like literally throwing money down the toilet. The scary thing is a lot of Realtors are not even aware of the problem.

Other important factors:

1. 51% of all people are now reading their email from their phone. You should check to make sure the emails you are sending to your real estate clients look good on a phone.

2. 61% of people will leave your website if it is not mobile enabled, meaning that you have a mobile version of your website.

3. 75% of people will not wait longer than 5 seconds for your website to load. They will leave and go to the next real estate agent’s website.

MOBILE USERS ARE 7x MORE ENGAGED THAN PC USERS!

1. 70% of mobile users will take action on a website in 1 hour

2. 70% of desktop PC / MAC users will take action within 1 month.
