Real Estate Directories. Which ones are good?

Discussion in 'Directories' started by Blogmaster, Jan 5, 2008.

    I´m putting together a list of real estate directories which benefit real estate websites traffic wise. Not interested in PR, so if you want to mention it, please don´t. I´m interested in real estate directories which do rank for real estate related terms and are likely to give direct traffic to websites listed. I will start out with a few, and hopefully some of you will add a few more so that real estate webmasters on this forum are going to find some quality real estate directories to submit their real estate sites to.


    Here it goes:

    A search on Google for the term real estate directory should yield some nice results.

    Right. The top 2 of that search are www.justrealestate.org and www.reals.com.

    #3 is Realtor.com, so not really applicable.

    Not really a directory, although you can use it to find a Realtor.

    And yes, they do screw over agents on the listing fees (homes) on Realtor.com and dues for NAR membership (which is on top of your local and state membership dues).

    Bruce Swedal is a realtor, I wonder what he thinks of it...

    Ayup. Realtor.com really rakes in the dough.

    As we've drifted a bit off topic, which is partially my fault, I don't know that I can tell you which directories send traffic beyond what's on the front page of Big G. However, I hope to have my own RE directory on that page by the end of the year. Check back with me then. :)

    Is it owned by someone on DP? What sort of terms does it rank for?

    Hello folks :)

    Thank you for the list. I already had a list. However, you have helped me add to mine :)
    I actually run a website for a real estate agent. I've also done the SEO for such site. So this helps me :)

    "Would you share some more real estate directories with us?"

    Blogmaster,

    What that mean for me? If yes, I'll check over the list that has been posted. I will then go ahead and post more links. I do SEO work for realtors- if anyone needs work done :)

    So do I, but this thread is about sharing free resources for those who want to learn how to do it themselves. ;)
