For a real estate agent, having a mobile site is essential. But to create a mobile site requires certain technical skills that most of us just don’t have. We can hire a web developer to do it but that will cost a lot. There are some sites that offers a mobile site for real estate agents for monthly fees.
In this thread we will show you how to get a mobile site for free or with a very cheap price. Keep on reading.
Most (if not all) real estate agents already have a website. But only small percentages of pro agents that already used mobile sites. So, our main goal here is to add mobile site as an addition to your existing site. We will show you 2 options that you can choose to get a cost effective mobile site.
Option 1 : Using Static HTML Mobile Site
We include a premium mobile site template that you can use for free. You can download it using the link below. This mobile site has a touch-optimized features.

Edit The Template
To edit the template you will need HTML editor. The most famous HTML editor software is Adobe Dreamweaver but it’s not cheap. You can free HTML editor to do this task such as coffee cup. You can download it here : http://www.coffeecup.com/free-editor
After you are finished with editing the template, you need to upload it to your server. Easiest way to do this is by using FTP software. There many options but we recommend Filezilla. If you don’t know how to upload files using FTP software, there are many tutorials all over the internet. But hey, we even have one at this site. You can go to My Account > Video Trainings.
Make a new folder on your server, ie “mobile” or make a sub domain ie “m”. So your mobile site address would be yourdomain.com/mobile or m.yourdomain.com.
Using the FTP software, upload all the files to the folder that you made.
If people visit your site using a desktop pc, they will still see your main site. But if they are using smartphones, they will see a mobile optimized site. To do this, all you need is to put a redirect script to your main site index file. It can be index.html or index.php.
Pay attention to your directory name. The folder name should be called mobile and the page should be called index.html. It should be all lower case.
If your folder name is something other than mobile, don’t worry! We can still make it work. You just have to change a small piece of code.
Change mobile/ to whatever you named your mobile folder.
For example document.location = “mymobilewebsite/”;
Option 2 : Using WordPress
This is by far the easiest and effective way to have a mobile site. With WordPress, you don’t have to know about basic HTML editing. The downside is that a custom WordPress mobile theme cost more than static HTML site.
