    You can create a website for almost free gathering deign info from the internet. You can also get poorer by thousands of dollars trying to build a "good quality website".

    It all depends on your puposeand how you define "Good Quality Website".

    P.S - If you need help with a website you can PM me. I might be able to help you. However, I do only wordpress.

    Good website (if we talk commercial site) require some good experience and knowledge. Those things cost a lot. So unless you are talking about just design you should spend as much as you can for a good provider. Getting a website that is simply just designed well (no errors etc.) isn't a problem these days. The problem begins with when you want to make it work for your audience. So count it in thousands or hundreds if you find someone decent but just starting. Eventually you can build a site yourself if you are willing to learn and do the job. That will cost you as well depending on how valuable is your time to you.

    Features? All depends on your needs.

    In a website a very important feature is how user friendly it is, how easy is to navigate on it and how well optimized it is. Furthermore, the design is also an important feature: colors, site categories, menus, interactivity, all that. If you want to have a good looking, well optimized site, you would probably need to contact a webmaster. Ask him for his previous work projects and if you like what you see, consider hiring him.

      Thank you Triplescan! I totally agree! It has to be user friendly! Totally!

      I can't tell you how many crappy built sites I come across and do not stick around for long just because I can't find what Im looking for and it's just to difficult to maneuver around.

      Government websites are a prime example!!

      I was on the DMV website yesterday and got so angry! I could not find the info I needed! So a BIG YES to User Friendly!!

    Well, it seems good that you are thinking about a website development. And, if I talk about myself, yes, I have a website. For designing a website, you don't need to pay any money, because there are so many software available in the market. But for promoting or advertising your website, you need to pay some money to Google. In the regards to feature, you should have to provide the quality blogs, themes, services, so that people can like your website.

    Impossible to answer, really. Sorry about that.

    It depends on too many unknown variables. Do I want a dating site with a custom script? That might be $10,000 for the custom script alone. Do I want a high-end logo? Anywhere from $500 and up. Too many unknowns.

      Thank you GRM!

      Yes I know costs can range anywhere from around $1,000 all the way up to like you said, the $10,000's.

      I have a friend in Miami who had a Real Estate site built a year or two ago and she spent around $8,000!

    Archer,

    I am also in South Florida and tried to renew my license online and it was a nightmare! You are right! They need an overhaul of that site. LOL. But, in terms of your original question it depends on the purpose of the site. I do think having a blog as part of the site is a good idea as that helps with both engagement and search engine presence.

    One guy might think the $200 site he got off of Freelancer is good. Another guy might need to spend $50,000 at 2advanced to meet his expectations of what's good.

    This is going to vary HEAVILY, depending on what they're looking for.

    You can buy done-for-you niche sites that are brand new for as low as $40-$50. Some of the higher quality (similar) sites will sell for $150-$300. We just paid a designer and development team to rebrand and build our site from scratch. Total cost? Around $30K USD.

    On Flippa (or with us) you can buy low-end earning websites ($100 - $200 per month earnings) for $2K - $4K. You can purchase a $5K/month site for $100K.

    While outside our scope, guys like FE International or Quiet Light Brokerage sell sites that earn $20K per month for $500K and up. Sky's really the limit here...
