Websites are great. Many people google you instead of phone books.
Don't over do it. Try to use real pics of your properties instead of stock photos.
I pay around $300/yr for hosting. Not sure what I paid for the site creation and design. 500-1000?
Great place for getting quote request and it is a customers first impression.
At some point I may try to use my site for payments or client log in for service history??
