I do not use it but, you have to love the clever marketing - 'free site but, only $100/agent per month!' LOL

It is so cute how they do it: it is free, but if you want to use it well, pay 100/month for an agent.

I have heard of Placester ... not used it.  Nor will I. I am a advocate of WordPress and owning and controlling my website ... my business.

Inna Ivchenko I used a Placester site for one of my sites (I have three) for about a year from 2015 to 2016.

Here's the deal. It is a nice out of the box web site for the money. I find it clean, easy to use and looks great.

However, if you do not spend money on SEO or Pay per click, you are not going to make any money off of it.

I admit I was bored and took a look.  If you wanted IDX or anything beyond a VERY basic site, it cost money.  CRM is extra. 

 

No thanks.  Very happy with my site that isn't using a cookie-cutter template that looks like every other placeter website.

If we would stop trying to find a magic bullet and us the MLS and keep it for us Realtors like it was 10 years ago it is the only site we would need to work and it would save time and money...and the public would know that they need to come to us.
