I was surprised when I stumbled on this web site showcasing land for sale. No, it’s not due to their overwhelming inventory and sales value, but more on the web site design in general. It’s modern and sleek and more commonly associated with Web 2.0 applications rather than traditional businesses like selling real estate!
It’s obvious that Landflip dares to be different when it comes to their online presence. While other real estate agents are still stuck in the age of frames and table-based layout, Landflip is a breath of fresh air when it comes to web design in this industry.
Personally, I find this to be a very healthy development in web design. If traditionally offline businesses like Landflip dares to think out of the box, it will encourage others to experiment and push web technology to complement their core business.
Hopefully this will make Web 2.0 to be seen as being not only for web tools and geeky designers who like flashy icons; but more as an evolution of the Internet in general.
