DeType is a leading web design agency in Kettering, Northamptonshire, that specialises in creating high impact websites for estate agents.

The thought of creating a new website can be daunting. You need to ensure that your agency stands out in your local market but do you have the money and resources to create a site that will put you ahead of your competitors?

We prove to our clients time and time again that you don’t need a huge budget or a full in-house team to create a site can have all the functionality you need and that your visitors will love. We take the resources you have available and turn them into a beautiful, high-converting site so you can get back to what you do best – selling homes.

Our team is made up of expert designers and developers with years of experience in the industry as well as the passion and drive to stay on top of latest trends and tools, so your website is always running at its best. We have been partnering local estate agents as well as national PropTech companies such as PropCo and CheckDocs for over 10 years.

“When you run an SME in an industry that is extremely competitive and fast paced, it is always a challenge to dedicate enough time to your virtual window. In our case, 6 years raced by without any real overhaul of our website. In 2022 we set about a “refresh” that really turned into a full website update, enabling us to include some technologies that help us to stand out from our competitors.”

Stay relevant

Marketing has changed a lot over the past few years and the days of successful outbound marketing (a common tactic for many estate agents) are fading fast. In these modern, online world, if you have a small business like an estate agency, and want to stay relevant and attract new customers, having a user-friendly, responsive site is essential.
Websites are a great way to get in front of a new audience and generate leads with 30% of small businesses that have a website, generating more than 25% of their revenue online.
The people buying homes has now changed as well, 66% of first-time buyers are millennials, people who have grown up with tech and used to searching for answers to their questions online. Chances are if you don’t have an online presence for them to find, you won’t even be on their radar. But it’s not just millennials that are looking online for their new home, 44% of people buying a property in 2016 looked online before searching anywhere else, so getting an effective high-ranking website is the only way to reach these people.

Save your teams time

The sites we create are easy for you to maintain and that dont require you to constantly be updating your listing, so you can spend more time proving a great service to your customer and closing deals

We can build you a website with a fully integrated property feed from Jupix, Dezrez, PropCo, Vebra, Rezi, ExpertAgent, Citylets or from scheduled BLM or CSV files. It is a fully automated process that runs on a schedule which keeps the properties displayed on your site up to date without you having to do a thing.

“We have embraced the inspiring work of DeType to re-brand our complete image across two businesses to include a brand new website, advertising boards, stationery and templates for email marketing to list just a few. I really have no intention of working elsewhere.
