Spring is normally associated with time to clean house. “Spring Cleaning” right? So its Spring and time for a new look for HomesFortmill.com. Ta Da….! We changed our website!
Most of the motivation to change our website design was triggered by technology changes. The two primary changes are the overwhelming increase in internet use via mobile devices. The second factor is a technology change by the home search provider Carmen subscribes to and passes on to you.
Smartphones and tablets are making huge changes to the internet, real estate, and life in general. There are approximately 133.7 million smartphones in use in the US today. Tablet sales increased 177% last year. These facts triggered the need to make our website mobile friendly.
IDX Broker is the home search “IDX” ( Internet Data Exchange) provider we use to deliver a robust homes for sale search on our website. We have switched to their new mobile friendly platform. Now you don’t have to have a separate mobile app to search for homes on your smartphone using our website home search.
There is one other point about the home search feature on our website. We use TWO Multiple Listing Service databases in our online search platform. So you are able to see homes for sale that are listed in either the Carolina MLS system and the Piedmont Regional MLS service.
So what did we change? We changed the website design and layout. We hope you agree the new look is cleaner and less cluttered. We have added tons of home search features. The home page has a large search box and an auto drop search form on the top. There are custom city search links and many more homes search tools. Best of all the website is mobile responsive. This means the website will adjust for different screen sizes automatically.
We have also redesigned our sister websites SeetegaCay.com and SeeFortMill.com. What do you think about the new website look? We would like to hear your feedback.
