All of the above.   That is like asking whether the steering wheel, brakes, gear shift or the engine is most important in your car.  It all works together.  You need it all.

Prop search right in front - get what people want most.

About page - it's all about what you can do for them.

Your worthless without good mobile interaction.

No one mentioned that 'good stuff' in the upper 1/3rd of the page/fold to get better interaction. Don't make people scroll endlessly to search for homes or anything else.

Chris,

The most important is EASE OF USE.  Everything else will be secondary, if it is too complicated, too cluttered, and have flashing announcements.  A

I would think all are important, but esp IDX and lead capture.

I'm not a realtor, but I'll take this free opporty for a link.  I hope this article will rank a bit better.  How to reduce and prevent scratches in hardwood floors.
