Hatteras, NC (PRWEB) December 05, 2014
Midgett Realty, a vacation rental management and real estate company in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, has unveiled a new responsive vacation rental and real estate website. The custom website offers an array of advanced features, and the responsive design makes it easier than ever to book a Hatteras Island vacation online.
"As technology is ever-changing and mobile devices are becoming more prominent in the marketplace, we wanted to provide our guests with the most convenient and efficient experience possible," said Dennis Robinson, Marketing Director
The new MidgettRealty.com, designed by digital agency Bluetent, features a streamlined homepage and several ways to select and book one of Midgett Realty’s 500 plus vacation rentals. Guests can select dates and begin a search right from the homepage, or the search can be refined on the advanced search page using a number of filters. Vacation rental results can be viewed in the standard list view or on a new map view. Alternatively, web visitors can navigate to a variety of custom landing pages, including a page dedicated to pet friendly Hatteras properties, proximity to the ocean or Pamlico Sound, or preferred Hatteras village (Hatteras, Frisco, Buxton, Avon, Salvo, Waves, and Rodanthe).
The custom map view allows users to browse vacation rentals based on location, and clicking on the map bubbles displays a thumbnail image of the property, an availability calendar, and rates for the selected time period. An exciting new addition is the Nearby Homes feature, where homes that are closest to the selected property are displayed on a map and in a list below - helpful for family reunions or group trips where guests like to book several homes near each other.
The real estate sales portion of the site features a custom MLS search for the entire Outer Banks Association of REALTORS (OBAR) MLS. Users can refine the search through the use of more than 70 search filters and view search results on a traditional list or on a custom map view.
Built on a responsive template, the website adapts to the user’s screen size, offering an optimized experience on tablets and mobile devices, as well as desktop computers. Often multiple devices are used when researching and planning a vacation, and Midgett Realty wanted to allow a seamless and secure booking experience for guests using any type of device. Real-time availability calendars, full-size slideshows of property images, the ability to search by an array of amenities, and a user-friendly Hatteras area guide round out the list of features on the new website.
