Beacham & Company published its first website makeover in nearly two years today using the most modern web platform available – a platform deemed ‘future ready’ by the website design industry. The new site takes advantage of WordPress technology which is fast-gaining acceptance in the business community and is now used by more than 40 percent of Fortune 500 companies worldwide.
WordPress is called ‘future ready’ because it is scalable, constantly updated and features more than 31,000 plug-ins for adapting sites to the most current demands of tech-savvy consumers. WordPress also enables enhanced compatibility with tablets and smartphones, allowing users the same functionality as a desktop user would experience.
Dac Carver, Vice President and Managing Broker of Beacham & Company, said: “We are thrilled with the new look, which is even more elegant than the previous version of the website. We are also pleased to be the first among our competitors to utilize the Internet’s most modern design platform.”
Carver said that while WordPress technology has created all sorts of possibilities for the future of the firm’s internet presence, the most exhilarating and obvious benefit of the new website for Beacham clients and other visitors is the now enormous display of property photos – perhaps the largest property photos of any real estate website in North America.
“The technology behind the site is exciting for those of us who are into that sort of thing, but the enhanced importance we give to property photos now is what everybody notices,” Carver said. “The first day we launched the site, we had a call from a buyer off the website who couldn’t believe how large the photos are. She thanked us and then asked to speak to one of our agents.”
Visitors to the Beacham website can create user accounts to save searches and receive new listing and price reduction alerts. Unlike many real estate websites, registration is not required to use the site. To visit the new Beacham website, go to: beacham.com.
