This information will not only play a role in your conversion rate but will also increase the dwell time and consequently improve your website’s SEO ranking. The more valuable and easily absorbable info you provide for your leads, the more time they spend on your site
If your real estate website has school info displayed for every property, it will become a factor in someone’s decision to press a call to action button and express an interest in a property.
Usually, the school info add-on on the website includes information about nearby schools and ratings. The rating info provides more information about the quality of schools in the neighborhood near the specific property location.
