Savannah Ga's Ugliest Real Estate Website

I accept the honor. A couple of years ago I looked into prettying it up, but didn't; it had grown on me, like my Chinese Crested, Fancy. Fancy doesn't know she's ugly -- she sits with a regal pose that suggests she's a queen, and that's all that matters. I think she's a queen, too. Chinese Cresteds almost always win the ugliest dog contests, but Fancy doesn't watch much TV.

What I hope, though, is it's functional and easy to use. I've put a home search function right at the beginning, along with a link to my home buyer's information site -- www.MikeFromSavannah.com --so that buyers have an information resuorce about Savannah areas.

I recently did a survey of the 3000 potential buyers in my database asking them what was most important to them when visiting a real estate website and overwhelmingly the reply was good pictures of listings, ease of use and thorough information. Not one of them said my site was ugly, except one suggested I not use green.

I believe two weaknesses exist with the BIG COMPANY websites, like Realtor.com, Trulia, Zillow, etc -- context and pesonalization. What I hope to provide buyers is a personalized search that meets their exact needs by providing thorough information and the opportunity to get a designer search.

Oh, I will probably pretty it up sooner or later, but it has been useful and what I really want is a place where a buyer can get in and zipzip find what they want -- and a place where a seller's home can be shown in an easy to find manner.

I'm always looking for ways to improve and if anyone reading this has suggestions, snd it on!. Email me at Mike@MikeFarmerRealty.com
