Top 5 Social Media Tips for Real Estate Agents To Sell that House

Social Media Tip for Real Estate AgentsRecently one of my blog readers commented that Realtors / Real Estate Agents don’t really know how to use social media well. That kind of shocked me because I know of a few realtors that seem to be doing quite well with it. It’s a no brainer for you to promote your listings on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and YouTube, but you can do so much more with social media.

In this economy, it’s tough selling a home so I wanted to give you my top 5 tips and tricks for realtors to use on social media to help promote their business.

  1. Do a virtual house showing of your top properties on Google+ Hangouts.
  2. Tell your story with photo galleries. Utilize Flickr or Google+ or Facebook photo albums or Twitter galleries to showcase homes you are selling.
  3. Showcase your properties with video. People love to see more than photos so invest $79 in a Flip video camera and offer a panoramic view of a house or your own video and upload on your site.
  4. Host a tweetchat for homeowners or about certain properties.
  5. Add QR codes to your fact sheets that link to an online video of your listing giving them more than just what they’re reading on a piece of paper.
