New Oak Lawn Homes & Real Estate Website


My first website ever was for Oak Lawn homes and real estate.  I started out with a popular real estate website provider and was with them for years.  In fact, I started out as a free member and quickly made it to the #1 position in Google and other search engines.  I held that top spot for many years.  Unfortunately, there has been a recent change in Google, and my site has fallen drastically.

The 2nd website provider is a very respected company but that site became too old fashioned and it would have cost quite a bit of money to bring it up to par.  In fact, part of the reason I believe my site has fallen in Google is because at the time I no longer had a home search, or IDX search, on the site.  My new website has a very good IDX search that shows all of the photos a listing agent has submitted (you’ll want to hit the “expand gallery” button that will appear when you hover over the photo box) and a lot of data, including room sizes.  I can’t get this much data on my much more expensive website.  If there’s a virtual tour you’ll get the link.

You’ll also get to see price history if there have been any changes and most listings will have a Zillow Zestimate and rent Zestimate, plus a Walkscore rating.  There will be both a Satellite and a Bird’s-eye view on each listing page.  You’ll also see similar listings followed by school districts and nearby schools with ratings.  You can schedule a showing right from the individual listing or you can fill-out a contact form with specific questions, although these listings provide all the data you’d need.

Be sure to read the blog posts as they can be very informative.  Oak Lawn is the southwest suburb that always has the most sales year after year, but this website also has community pages for the surrounding towns of Alsip, Bridgeview, Burbank, Chicago Ridge, Evergreen Park, Hickory Hills, Hometown,  Justice and Worth.  You’ll get instant data for each of these villages, including a list of properties for sale, although you’d probably want to create a more custom search for your price range, number of bedrooms and baths, etc.

I’m very happy with my new website and I try to provide buyers and sellers with all the information I feel they would want and need to move forward with their real estate needs in Oak Lawn and the surrounding towns.
