How much does a website cost | Free Website Design Cost Calculator

"How much does a website cost?"

The most common question any web designer / developer gets is, "how much does a website cost?" or "how much will this specific add-on feature cost?" and whilst its a fair question the answer is not so straight forward.

Set pricing can be a little difficult to provide due to the following reasons:

  • Website complexity and functionality can differ greatly. The nature of the website you want will also have a significant impact on the price.
  • Of course, your individual requirements will be the most important factor in determining the cost of any online endeavour.

For requirements typical questions revolve around: 

  • we need to know what is the purpose of your project
    • are we re-designing / developing your old site using similar / like content with new features
    • are you presenting a product / service
    • intending to sell online
    • need assistance with lead conversion
    • create new leads
    • etc...
  • launch date, when is the date your site has to go live
    • we often speak of launch ready items and after launch items as going live early and allowing your site to evolve is the best approach
  • must have/do items (enquiry forms, SMS integration, Credit Card integration, etc...)
  • design style (simple, elegant, high end, state of the art)
  • e-commerce requirements
  • amount of copywriting
  • SEO considerations above what is built into our programs
  • to name a few...

Price can then be assessed and quoted based on your needs, and/or if it will work with one of our existing CMS projects (RealOnline) or if you need a completely custom solution.

Our free website pricing calculator here will give you some indication of what to expect so you can budget appropriately.

The internet is a visual medium, if you have many photos of your products and services a gallery is a great way to display.

Easy Agent

“By far the most complete CRM on the market, fantastic automation and features but best of all is the ease of use. Like I teach all our agents, if your CRM is chunky and hard to use then you won't use it, but with RealOnline it is simple, quick and easy which makes our database management a breeze.”

Monty Van Dyk

Beach Property Group

“Highly recommend Subtle Difference - we created our real estate website with them. We wanted a website that we could control to a certain degree. Not the overall look and feel but the content and listings etc. So far exactly what we have needed and wanted. The service from the developer is great too. Always quick to respond and assist where required.”
