The stats are not surprising: 90% of home buyers search online to find a home according to this report created by Google and NAR from 2017. When going online, buyers use listings sites such as Zillow and Redfin, but they also use search engines extensively. This highlights the importance of Search engine marketing and SEO for real estate sales.
We recently created a white paper to highlight some of our client’s SEO traction. For our first white paper, we picked our largest San Francisco condo communities and compared to its biggest competitors nearby.
While our client had a visibility of 4-5% during 2017 for all non-branded, localized real estate related search queries, our competitors all had 0-2% visibility. These may sound like very minor numbers, but the SEO competition for real estate keywords is highly competitive. Our goal is to increase our visibility to 5-10%.
