Sorry for the stupid question, but I notice that we talk about a lot about the importance of have the right words or title in H1 or H2. What exactly does this mean what is the relevance of it? Iím trying to build my own web site but donít have much experience in the field.

The H tags are heading tags that format your text into headings. H1 is the most prominent (largest), H2 the second, and so forth. You need to mind the content of each heading tag, it's probably a good idea. What he is essentially saying is that the search engines look to these tags for relevant meaning for SEO. Don't fill them with junk, essentially. I would advise you to take help from web design tool like Topagentsite which is specifically designated for real estate investment.
