Pricing a new car can be difficult. Why is a new Lexus one price, while a new Scion is another price? The answer is simple, they come with different quality and different features.
We know that pricing a new website can also be tough. We wanted to do what Zack Aho mentioned by "taking price out of the equation".

Before we talk about website speed for real estate, we want you to know that when you get a foundation site, your new site will be setup like the demo and ready for you to start using within one business day.
Website speed is important for real estate websites today. Google likes sites that load quickly and provide a great user experience. You can read our "WordPress Speed" article that describes some of the things you can do to make your site faster.
Each Foundation site gets a Speed Optimization when it goes live, then you can have one each year at no charge to make sure your changes on your real estate site keep working as quickly as possible.
Our Speed Optimization Package includes:

SEO is what makes Google notice your site and rank it against other sites. While there are many things that will make your site rank on the first page of Google, we help you with a few of the biggest things.
First, we include the Yoast SEO plugin on your site. Yoast helps you adjust and tweak the titles, keywords, meta descriptions and more on your content to make sure you have everything you need to get great Seach Engine Optimization on your WordPress real estate site.
The second thing that is important for SEO is to load your site with original and interesting content. Content can be pages, blog posts, photos you have taken or even links to your YouTube channel.
Your site should be the bottom of your sales funnel, with all of your business cards, print marketing, social networks, and everything else pointing to your site. When you get visitors who come and spend time on your site, Google will reward you with better page rank.
Lastly, we have some great speed features and SSL, both of which are key metrics Google uses to determine your page rank. Be sure to follow the tips on our WordPress Speed page to keep your Foundation site ranking as high as possible.
All our designs are mobile responsive
Your clients can enjoy your Foundation site on their phone, tablet, or desktop. No apps to download. This is quick, simple and easy to use.
We include not just a single theme like most sites, but we include 3 Frameworks:
Then we add in all of the themes:
6 Themes for Equity
6 page layouts from Beaver Builder
3 Themes from Genesis
12 Layouts from RealtyCandy
We add one new layout design to the RealtyCandy choices every 60 days.
You also have the option to get any one of our layouts for your website each year at your anniversary. We install the new design for you, then you just hop in and move all of your existing content to the new page and boom! your new site is ready to go. Quick and Easy.
We have worked hard to include all of the best tools available to provide you with a site that is easy for you build and change as you want. Part of "Easy" is making it easy for you to get started. The first part of that is to quickly get your site up and running. We will get your new Foundation site going in just one business day from the time you purchase it.
Our goal was to make something that a grandparent or even a great-grandparent can hop in and change. You can see a couple of videos at the bottom of this page, and the links to even more videos showing you how to change and update almost everything on your Foundation WordPress website for real estate.
If you do run into things that you don't want to change, or you don't have time to setup, our designs are fast and easy to use for any developer. You can google for freelancers and find sites like wpgalaxy.tech, fiverr, and upwork who can do what you need done.
Hosting a website somewhere like Godaddy can be a really cheap experience. Just like eating at a restaurant like McDonalds. Yes the food will fill you up, but it may be lacking some of the benefits of going somewhere like Outback Steakhouse.
We have clients who have purchased themes from us and hosted their sites at Godaddy, HostGator, BlueHost, and others. About 3-4 years ago we found WPEngine. They are the Mercedes of WordPress hosting. They are not the cheapest option around, but we feel they are the best. We host RealtyCandy.com at WPEngine and we wouldn't recommend anything less for our clients.
They include the following:
- State of the art Amazon and Google Servers
- 24/7/365 customer support
- Daily Backups
- SSL Ready
- EverCache for speed
- Malware scans
- CDN ready
- and much, much more.
Foundation real estate sites are for people who really want to make something beautiful, unique and easy to use.
We provide up to 30 minutes a month of email or phone support for your site. If you need more support via phone calls or email, we can do that for you at our $100 per hour rate with a $50 minimum. Just let us know what you need on our "Contact" page, and we will set it all up for you.
We provide a great library of YouTube videos showing you how to do setup and customizations on your Foundation site. Use these as a guide to setup everything you need.
We know that some people want to be able to call us anytime they have a question and get the answers to how to change the color on the button, make a font bigger, or change an image. We understand that.
We also have clients who have an assistant in their office, or who have some Do-it-yourself gene that makes them want to do everything on their own. We understand that too.
What we do by billing by the hour for our time, is make the support we provide more fair. If one client needs 12 hours of our time to setup their site, and another client doesn't need any of our time, then we charge the same price to both of them, the one who didn't need any help is basically subsidizing the one who needed a lot of extra help. We didn't feel that was right.
Now you get "pay and play" support. If you don't need it. That is great. If you need it. That is fine too.
We typically work from 9-5 Pacific time Monday through Friday. We take most holidays off, but we have someone assigned to check for urgent messages, so if there is a critical problem, we can help out.
When we talk about updates we are really talking about 3 different benefits:
- Updating the plugins and WordPress files to keep your site updated, fast, and safe.
- Paying the update fees that are charged for plugins, frameworks, and other tools.
- You have the option each year on your "anniversary" to have us install one of our new layout designs to your site. Then you can change the content and update the look and feel of your site.
All three of these updates are included in any Foundation real estate site.
You own it
We provide the best hosting solution with WPEngine.
You get backups, updates, and security features, WP administrator and SFTP access, but if someday you want to leave and do everything on your own, just let us know. There are no contracts and we will provide you the download link to take your site where ever you like.
Simple to use, Easy to learn, & Fast to setup
We have worked hard so you don't have to. Agents and clients have told us they want to sell real estate not build websites. This is the solution to quickly get your site up and running so you can do what you do best: Sell real estate!
Integrate with IDX Broker and display all of the listings in your MLS. Saved searches and maps provide a great experience for your visitors.
Customize the settings of your site in a matter of minutes for your colors, fonts, and branding. Enjoy the preview as you make quick changes.
