Q: What does What does "resulting in a real estate takeover" mean? mean?
A: Real estate: property, typically consisting of land or buildings

I’m assuming that this advertising campaign is using terminology typically associated will the housing market or construction companies. Real estate is kind of like property, and it is usually used when talking about land, but in this case, it is probably referring to the possibility that if your website/auction uses certain keywords or phrases, it will prosper and do well. When this happens, rival websites/auctions will be out-competed by your website and go out of business, making more room for your website to succeed and make profit. It is similar to a real estate takeover: if there are three businesses on one street, and one business does better than the other two, those two will eventually go out of business. When they do, the business that did the best has the opportunity to buy the land/buildings of the failed businesses, a real estate takeover, and use those to make more profit for themselves.
