We’ve talked before about how Twitter serves as both a great marketing resource and a platform to engage with your customer base. But Twitter can also be an opportunity for you to learn from others and stay on the cutting edge of your industry.
To help get you started, here are a few of our favorite Twitter accounts to follow relevant to real estate. We’ve shared their personal Twitter bios, and a little bit about why we love them in particular.
The leading independent source of real estate news, commentary & education.
This account cranks out all the best industry insight, from helpful apps to major shifts in mortgage laws. Be in the know when it comes to all things real estate.
We’re bringing design down to earth.
Great tips for your clients on design, including home staging. Also includes the real estate leg of Huffington Post.
Home and rental listings. Expert advice. Simple tools. We’re here to help!
This is your best stop for market trends. This is perhaps HouseHunt’s most trusted third party source for industry research. They also include a lot of insight about your clientel with list journalism including, “What First-Time Buyers Look for in an Agent,” “What Women Buyers Want in a Home,” etc.
The nation’s #1 free resource for background-checked and customer-reviewed home service professionals.
On the surface, HomeAdvisor may not seem like they have a lot to do with real estate; they’re more about home improvement and customer service. But they constantly offer tips for improving resale value and what buyer’s are most often looking for.
One of the top 5 RE-MAX agents in MA for the last decade. Social media/SEO junkie.
This is the personal account of Bill Gassett, who has guest blogged for us (and we for him!). With over 16,000 followers, he’s obviously got a knack for sharing his real estate wisdom. Known especially for his cutting edge marketing strategies, there is plenty to learn from this guru.
Century 21 Real Estate LLC is the franchisor of the world’s largest residential real estate sales organization.
We like these guys because they’re not afraid to show some personality. They take what’s big in pop culture – from the Breaking Bad finale to Justin Bieber egging his neighbor – and give it a real estate twist. Plus naturally they post plenty of helpful marketing and customer service tips for agents.
Between these two sources, you’ll know everything there is to know about mortgage. Furthermore, these accounts understand social media etiquette better than anyone else in the Twittersphere.
Let’s just be real, we have everything you could possibly be looking for: market trends, design tips, insightful articles, easy-to-share infographics, and more. The HouseHunt side is more for homeowners and the Agents side is for real estate professionals, but both will serve as beneficial resources.
