We already know how important it is to have Real Estate SEO for websites. But is it necessary? Absolutely. In today’s competitive market, consumers verify and make their decisions based on information they find on the internet. Let me give you an example.
When you buy something, do you google it and make sure the product has good reviews, works flawlessly and has a good warranty? The same thing goes for your clients. Buyers and Sellers want to find out more about you before they hire you. There’s more.
Most consumers like to compare products before they make their final decision. Lets say a prospective client types in the words “your city/neighborhood” and “real estate”. Are you on the top 5 of that search? It would be great, right? Even though your one of the best agents in that city, client perception may differ after viewing Google search results. This may not be true in every case, but perception is a very powerful tool.

First, I would highly recommend using a WordPress website. User comfort, accessibility to plugins and capabilities make the best option for websites. WordPress has become the website standard in most industries. Why would you use anything else, right?
