AdWords offers real estate agents an effective way to create new leads, but in order to do so you’ll need a healthy advertising budget, as the cost of the most competitive keywords reveals. Typically, the higher the cost per click for a specific keyword, the more competitive it is, which translates into more hits on your website – so long as you can pay for it!

If you target any of the above words or phrases for traditional SEO, you’ll be in for a tough battle. Nonetheless, the economic value of ranking for some of the above keywords is substantial enough that it may well be more than worth the costs.
