Internet Marketing For Real Estate Investors And Agents

Copyright (c) 2009 Duncan Wierman

Today online marketing has become key for many businesses and real estate is no exception. The Internet has become the first place most potential homeowners search when looking for the perfect property so with this in mind it goes without saying that today’s real estate investors must have an effective web presence in order to continue being successful even through these tough times.

I feel it is safe to say that the most dramatic and important changes to happen to the real estate industry has been brought about due to the Internet and all real estate agents and investors should embrace it. This is especially true when you think about the fact that there are over 2,000,000 searches for the keywords ‘real estate’ everyday on the major search engines such as Google, Yahoo and MSN; just think of the amount of potential customers that this could bring to your business and best of all with an online presence your real estate business will remain open 24/7, so you will never miss out on closing a deal. There is however one thing that you need to keep in mind, which is the fact that in order for your real estate business to do any good online you need to ensure it’s ranked high within the search engine results pages.

When a potential property buyer performs a search on one of the many search engines they will type in something that resembles the name of their city and the keywords real estate. In order for them to stand any chance of clicking on your site you need to generally appear within the first two pages of the results. This is thanks to the fact that 80% of people never look further than the first page of the search engine results and 95% of people never make it past the second page of results. Basically if your site isn’t ranked within the first two pages you will be receiving little or no traffic. So how do you get your real estate website to appear in these positions? Through Internet marketing of course.

There are a number of advantages to Internet marketing for real estate investors. Because of the numerous advantages Internet Marketing is offering to both investors and their clients, it has become more and more of a popular platform for all competitive real estate investors. Some of the main advantages that Internet marketing for real estate investors are as follows:

1. It is a lot quicker – clients can double the amount of homes they can sell when they are listed online as oppose to going through real estate agents. 2. Clients can easily narrow down their search to find the property they want 3. Due to the fact the more potential homeowners are now of the younger generation, they grew up using the Internet in their daily lives so they are more likely to find a property by using the Internet.

Websites, thanks to Internet marketing are more appealing than other promotional material such as brochures. Also by using websites to promote and sell real estate, communication is easier and cheaper as it is all done by email.

The Internet is now the best way to buy and sell all forms of real estate so if you are in the business of doing this make sure you get on board with it now.
