Has The Real Estate Market Moved to The World Wide Web?

KM HomesThe indecisive answer is: Yes!

As being connected to the internet continues to entwine with our daily lives more and more, you can’t help but appreciate the power the internet offers to both consumers and to businesses.

With the flip of a phone and a tap of a finger you have Google.com and the entire World Wide Web at your finger tips in seconds. As consumers, both young and old, move to the internet as their primary means of searching for products and services, smart businesses have moved to where the consumers are going.

The Real Estate market is no different.

Buying a new home can be a daunting task – especially if you are moving to a completely new area. For example, in the past someone in Chicago may have had a hard time finding a real estate agent in Atlanta.

But, now, a potential home buyer jumps on their computer or smartphone and searches, “Buy a new home in Atlanta,” and instantly has access to hundreds of real estate agents and companies all wanting to help them find their next home.

Where is your online presence?

It can be a troubling sight to see your direct competition ranking higher in the search engines then your own, and as the internet continues to grow the benefits of being at the top of the search engines will continue to increase.

What’s next?

The best thing a company can do is perform an Search Engine Optimization Analysis on your website. This type of report gives you a benchmark and clear understanding of a number of things:

  1. Where your website currently ranks on Search Engines for the search terms you want to rank on the first page for.
  2. What improvements your website needs to keep Google and the Search Engines happy and loving your website.
  3. What overall web presence your website and company has built, including how these are helping or hurting your current search engine rankings.
  4. Proactive and specific steps to improve your rankings on the search engines moving forward.
