“The Easy Way to Add Local Community and School Information to Real Estate Websites”


Local Community Content for Real Estate Websites
Local Community Information for Real Estate Buyers

You Need Local Community and School Information on Your Real Estate Website

Real Estate buyers expect local information on Real Estate websites.

Out of town buyers require local community and school information.

A Real Estate buyer arrives at a Real Estate website to view a listing. They like the property listed and decide to do further research about the community and schools. Unfortunately, there is no local community information available on the website so they immediately go to their favorite search engine. Once on the search engine they find what they are looking for and they also find all the competitors.

You spend a lot of money to attract customers to your website doesn't it make sense to keep them there once they arrive.

When people are moving from one community to another they use the Internet to find local community information. If they arrive at your website and you have the information they want they will stay longer and return often. In so doing it increases the likelihood they will do business with you.


Local Links are the Best Way to Provide Local Community Content

Local Digital Channels are an Important Element in Providing Local Community and School Information on a Real Estate Website

What is a Local Digital Channel?

Other local resources are useful to the buyer only one time.

A local digital channel is a list of links (Internet shortcuts) to websites that are relevant to a local community.
    • Local government
    • Local chambers
    • Local schools
    • Local school report cards
    • Local employment
    • and much more..
The links are checked and maintained to assure connectivity and accuracy.
 

These local websites help the buyer do detailed research about the community and the schools.

Other local information resources like videos, text profiles, charts and demographic data are likely to only provide a fraction of the information a buyer is seeking. The information provided from these resources often can be assimilated in one visit and does not compel the buyer to return.

Local websites by category.

 

Deep Linking.

Each Metro eGuide contains local linked websites that are categorized by community, county, schools, local news and state.

The best local websites.

Our experienced trained researchers scour the Internet for the best most relevant websites. We find the websites that have a vested interest in providing accurate relevant information.

 

Most local link directories link to a website's home page even though the information relevant to the buyer is buried deep in the website. This forces the buyer into the difficult task of searching the website to find the local information they need.

In contrast, our researchers dig deep into the website to find the most relevant information and link directly to that information. When your buyer uses our links they get the information they want immediately. This increases buyer satisfaction and saves them time.
