Niche Real Estate Websites

There’s no question about it: Niche real estate websites are remarkably¬†powerful marketing channels. If you’re a real estate agent,¬†and you’re serious about your marketing efforts, you’re probably already privy to the power of niche real estate websites. If you’re not plugged into this marketing technique, well, keep reading.¬†

Every real estate agent¬†should have at least two websites: one branded website and one non-branded website. Here’s why: In today’s day and age, everything is done online and it’s imperative that when someone ‘Googles you’, they land on¬†a professionally¬†branded real estate website. However, a branded website can at times be inadequate¬†from a lead generation point of view, so, it’s important to also have a niche website, perhaps¬†pertaining to the community you’re targeting.¬†

Here are 4 reasons why every real estate agent should have a niche real estate website:

1. You will generate more leads
A niche real estate website, coupled with the right content strategy, is a sure-fire way to generate high quality¬†leads. In the world of website traffic, content is king. So, if your website is EtobicokeCondos.com, you have to ensure that you have plenty of valuable content pertaining to your keyword(s) i.e., “etobicoke¬†condos.” Individuals go to Google because Google is¬†unrivalled when it comes to¬†connecting you¬†to valuable results. Therefore, adding valuable content about your focus¬†community to your website, will in turn¬†help you¬†get lots traffic and leads, simple as.¬†

2. You will become an authority in your focus area(s)

Today’s homebuyer is savvier than ever. Information is displayed at the click of a mouse and we’re more informed now than we’ve ever been. If someone is¬†looking to buy a home in Burlington, they want to know that the agent¬†they’re working with is well versed in this market.¬†This provides a unique opportunity to savvier agents looking to capitalize on this shift. Having a niche website focusing on a city or community makes you more marketable to this new generation of buyers.¬†

3. You will improve your web presence

Some agents¬†have over 10 real estate websites. Why? It’s simple: They understand ROI. If you generate a lead and close a sale from one of your websites,¬†that will essentially pay for your real estate website for the rest of your life (and have some money left over!). ¬†Now, you don’t need to setup 10 websites per se, but having two or more websites¬†can be very beneficial in the long run.

Note:¬†There’s a distinction between having multiple domain names and multiple hosted websites. Generally speaking, multiple hosted websites are much more powerful than the former.¬†

You can sign up for a real estate website and pay as low as $20/Month for an industry leading website with a range of tools to fuel your real estate career.

4. Non-branded outperforms branded in paid campaigns 

If you take part in paid campaigns such as Facebook Ads and Google AdWords, it’s wise to use a non-branded website. It’s been proven that leads are much more likely to convert on a paid campaign if they visit a non-branded website. What is a non-branded real estate¬†website anyways? Generally, a non-branded website either fails to¬†include the agents photo and contact information, or does so, but in a very subtle way. Instead, the focus is on the niche theme they’re zeroing in on. End result: the visitor is more comfortable leaving their contact information, as they don’t feel they will be inundated¬†with endless emails and calls. ¬†
