Affordable SEO for realtors has always been a way to get in the game and truly compete for clients online. Today, spending money for newspaper or magazine ads has become a thing of the past; and potentially an huge waste of money spent. Search engine optimization can be an even more affordable way in which to market not only yourself as a realtor, but also your current listings.
Realty is a highly competitive profession; especially working alongside a large number of realtors in the same city or town. How do you get ahead of the pack? How do you steal the leads that your competitors are getting each and every day? SEO.
It is well known, that if you are searching for exercise equipment or antique light fixtures online, you will enter a keyword or a key phrase into a well-known search engine (Google, Yahoo, Bing, etc.). When results are displayed, who truly scans through the ninth, tenth or thirtieth page for a valid website? Nobody.
It is those few that hold websites in the top rankings that are looked at first. The same applies for realtors and real estate agents. The first few pages, and especially that of the first few ranked individuals, will get: the first website click, the first client, and possibly, the first sale. Who wouldn’t want to be this realtor?

What exactly is affordable seo, and how much should I expect to pay? As with any profession, rates vary by: demand, years of experience, expertise, etc. An average SEO company will charge anywhere from $40 per hour on the low end, to $200 per hour on the higher end. Note that more expensive service, does not always mean, ‘better’ service. Some companies wish to play the Affordable SEO game of competitive pricing with each other, which is always in a realtor’s favor.
The first month of SEO for a realtor, as well as any other company or profession, will always be the most costly. Packages may start at $2,000 for the first month, but taper off to your budget of a few hundred dollars for months thereafter. The first month is a necessary search engine optimization investment. The first month of an SEO campaign gets your website ready and rockin’ for true SEO to commence.
One should notice a small jump in rankings even after only a few months of that initial SEO month. This is because when a website is properly prepared for search engines to read, that is exactly what happens – search engines like Google note the changes, and rank your site accordingly.
