375 Best Infographics

InfographicsI love Infographics for many reasons.

They combine great content with compelling images to help viewers comprehend the data and info provided. Remember those boring ugly spreadsheets back in the day that looked like the old school Wall Street Journals?  Just a bunch of text and numbers on a page that made you yawn and feel nauseous?

This won’t and can’t happen with a well created Infographic.

Top 25 Beautiful Real Estate Websites

These are the Top 25 Most beautiful websites, at least according to Placester.

Once you see them, you may agree.  If you’re looking to build a new site, get ideas regarding layout and design, or you just want to see what it takes for Placester to select a site as “most beautiful” in real estate, then you’re in the right spot.

To help inspire the creation of more real estate sites that emphasize both form and function, Placester put together this list of the 25 most beautiful real estate websites. Agents, brokers, hotels etc.  If they focus on properties, they’re included.

“Your real estate website is more than just a place where folks can search through your listings: it’s a representation of your business and the quality of service you deliver.”

There are obviously hundreds… literally thousands of “beautiful” real estate websites out on the Internet, but one fact for sure is that there are many more “not so beautiful” sites cluttering up the super-information highway.  The best suggestion anyone can make to you is to research what’s already out there.

Basically, what’s working? What cultivates traffic and visitors? What’s capturing and converting?  How easy is it to use? Now create something of your own that does the same thing.  Explore the 25 sites in these slides, you’ll come away with some fresh and distinct ideas to incorporate into your beautiful site.
