How to get your real estate company on Google?

3 Replies

I tried putting my real estate investment comapny on google. But it asked me for my address but i dont have a office address i work out of my house and i dont want my personal home address on there. Does any body know how to do this without a address? 

I personally do not know how to put your real estate investment company on google without an address. However, I do have one suggestion that can help grow/manage your business without an office. A lot of independent real estate investors will use a virtual receptionist or virtual office when they start getting a lot of return calls. This can help make you look more legitimate and help cut down on your busy work. I have posted a couple of websites below that you can take a look at if your interested. Hope this helps!

Google local (what you are describing) is the way to do it for free. From your post, i would suggest using a virtual address.  You can basically "borrow" and address and use it to confirm your Google local account. You can "rent" these for $25-$100/ month. 

If that doesn't work for you, the other way would be through a Google Ad Words campaign... that will cost depending on competition. 

if your website has a search friendly name, depending on your local competition, it should be picked up Google. Also, you can help the ranking by adding key words through your website, adding informational articles, and using free search engine directories to get your name out, among other strategies.

Do you think i should use one of my rental addresses?
