A property website must incorporate the right balance of excellent design, engaging visual and textual content, and state-of-the-art CMS technology that is responsive design-friendly and dynamic content personalization-ready. Making the right investment will lead to an optimum user experience from top to bottom, which inevitably will boost conversions on and revenues from the site.”
