How Important are Digital Marketing Tools for Real Estate Advertising?      

Estimated Reading Time: 5 Minutes

How Important is Digital Marketing Tools for Real Estate Advertising? Digital marketing has completely changed our business. For example, when I started in real estate 35 years ago, the only option for marketing properties for sale was in the newspapers.

The Tico Times was the only newspaper for English-language clients in those days. So every English-speaking person in Costa Rica would go to the Auto Mercado on Friday mornings to buy this weekly newspaper. And they were shipping them abroad!

With the start of the internet, a website was suddenly an option. We were one of the first to have a website in Costa Rica, and it was a sub-domain of a portal. I think we’ve had like ten different websites and systems since the ’90s.

Now, digital marketing allows us to reach an audience that goes far beyond what we could in the ’90s.


Are you selling your property? Then you should invest some time to research which real estate companies make the best use of digital marketing for their real estate advertising. Without digital marketing tools nowadays, it’s impossible to sell anything.

I am not talking about those 1000’s persons who call themselves realtors and copy/paste their posts in as many Facebook groups as they can. That’s what they call advertising in social media.

Serious real estate companies follow specific plans to gain sales and customers. One of the many factors included in the said plan is a marketing strategy, where their whole business-customer relationship will revolve.

Hence, if you want to sell your property, then it’s just right that you first start looking into real estate agencies that have the right marketing strategy and use digital tools that will aid in your goals.

Digital Tools

Many real estate agents in Costa Rica use a free system such as to create a website. However, to sell a property in Costa Rica and market this property worldwide on different platforms, a real estate company needs more than that.

For example, if you search for Costa Rica real estate on Google, you’ll find 142,000,000 results. A good agency incorporates all kinds of tools into the marketing process; here are a few examples:

Role of Digital Marketing Strategies

The central role of digital marketing strategies in real estate companies revolves around being a mediator between the seller and the buyer. It allows the seller, and the realtor, to have a bespoke platform, either physical or digital, to connect with the market. Consequently, it’s also the key to constantly generating leads and sales.

Here are some more things that a marketing strategy does for our real estate network:

  • Helps deliver an engaging and motivating sales message to buyers
  • Constantly gives way to new and innovative advertisement methods
  • Widens the reach of real estate ads
  • Sets a brand distinct from the competition

A great marketing strategy is crucial for offering properties for sale and rent.
