Real estate agents who invest in their websites with these areas in mind find that they realize a return on their investment sooner. Agents who do not take these areas into account may end up with a “business card” websites – its main point of visibility is on their business card.
IMCD Web Design creates real estate website packages that have modules, such as a blog, article manager and extra pages for detailing your real estate service. Real estate agents can invest in any of the modules they deem necessary to be competitive in their real estate markets. A quick search of your market will show you if the most visible websites use blogs to add content and visibility to their websites.

Seldom does a real estate website rocket to the top overnight. Usually it takes months for a website to work its way up the search engine results list. During those months as website owners add content and links to websites that are relevant to their industry, like the chamber of commerce sites, the search engines compare them to other sites. Often websites will move up faster on their “longtail” keywords – those words or phrases that are very specific, though used by fewer people, that are hot keywords for your site. Website visitors who find your site with a longtail keyword are usually looking for your services. Search engine ranking on competitive keywords takes longer, though IMCD has seen some of our clients arrive on the first page of Google in 4 to 9 months.
