Reasons to choose 4Property as your Website Development Partner

WordPress, with over 35 million websites built, is the world’s leading website development tool and is the global standard.

World-class organisations such as NASA, CNN, Microsoft have selected WordPress as their website development platform demonstrating the power ad versatility of this websit development platform.

Proprietary WordPress Theme: 4Property have developed a WordPress theme specifically for the Irish property market. This provides 2 advantages:

  • Only the code and functionality required by Irish property agents has been included, meaning our sites are lean & fast.
  • Updates made on the theme cascade down to all our agent’s sites, allowing for regular updates and maintenance (in 2023 over 300 updates were logged)

Content Management System (CMS): The WordPress CMS has been designed to allow non-technical staff to update and add content to websites.

However the 4Property team will also always be on hand to make any amendments to your site as required

4Property are fully independent and the Agents’ PropTech specialists. We have no other agenda; our sole aim is to provide our Estate Agent clients the tools they need to conduct a successful business. We work with all portals and other CRM providers to provide our clients with the best combination of solutions possible.

Feature Development: 4Property have an exciting schedule to develop new features & functionality for our property clients. Following on from 4Bids, a module to streamline viewings is scheduled this year, along with an instant approx. valuation tool designed to generate Vendor leads and finally a mechanism to book Facebook campaigns for individual property listings.

Targeting Vendors & Landlords: Our ambition for our clients is not only to provide sites that present properties beautifully but actively generate business with our services & strategies encompassing: SEO, Advertising, Remarketing & Lead Nurturing.

Project Scope

This below scope is put forward with the intent on being as flexible as possible so as to provide both <Company> options to suit their digital business requirements.

Group Website

Develop a group website that includes:

  1. Bespoke design of homepage, company pages, property brochure pages.
  2. Setup of property data feeds, property search functionality, all required property listing sections (Residential, Commercial, New Homes etc).
  3. Development/configuration of any other required functionality (e.g. property Alerts).
  4. Development of sections for each branch to include:
    • Branch information pages/sections (i.e. about us, team bios, opening times, location maps, links to social media accounts etc).
    • Property listings.
  5. Option to configure admin rights to allow the staff at Group and Branches to have the rights to edit specific sections of the group website.
  6. SEO analysis of competitors and SEO advice in producing and creating the content for the all sections of the site(s) at group and branch level.

Branch Websites

Develop a branch website design template to provide local branches with a very cost-effective option to having a local site developed. These local sites could either work in tandem with the group website, or alternatively site visitors searching for specific branch information could be clicked straight through to branch websites.
In addition Admin rights can be assigned across the branch sites allowing <Company> to edit Group content across the network of branch websites
