Below is a market competition research for real estate market in Vancouver, British Columbia on July 31, 2009.
Here was what I found over 20 million results when I search “real estate agents Vancouver BC” on Google.
When I search “realtors Vancouver BC”, I got 641,000 results. However it does not mean there are 20 million or 641 thousands realtors in Vancouver BC.
There are many local map searching results showing on top of the Google search. When I click to see more results, Google gives me over 47,000 results. Those 47 thousand should be more or less accurate in showing the number of realtors who have been registered with Google local business.
Do you think your prospects will find YOU in over 47,000 realtors? What if your website is listed on page one of the Google search, not only once but by multiple listings?
I will show you more of my market competition research in my next marketing journal.
