Get free PDF software at www.cutepdf.com. Not sure why you would need it? People convert files to PDFs so they can send documents to others and maintain the original formatting such as special fonts they may have used. This is particularly useful if you email any branded material such as net sheets, cma’s, flyers, etc.
Templates.com has over 6000 high-design websites, many with flash options, for an average price under $70.
Granted once you have the template, you’ll still need a web designer to customize it with your information. Many agents choose a company that specializes idx links which, if done correctly, can be a major lead generator.
Need a professional look on a low budget? We recently helped an agent create his own branded look. With no training in graphic design, we simply used Microsoft Publisher to create these three possible “logos”. The secret was simply finding the right font and playing with the placement. Once Andrew selected his favorite (the first one) he could now use this look and his company’s colors to brand everything including his own fax cover sheet, email signature, letterhead, direct mail, business cards, buyer and seller handouts, etc. Having consistent branding through out gives a professional feel, and in this case, didn’t cost anything.
