Social networking and Real Estate

Via Kristyn Grewell, ABR GRI (CENTURY 21 Goodyear Green):

You may not have a profile on Facebook or have hundreds following your tweets on TwitterYou may not even know what any of that means.  But hopefully your real estate agent does.

Did you know that over 80% of Americans use social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn monthly?  While it is true that teens and tweens are the trendsetters, folks 35 and over are using these platforms more and more.  The average age of a Facebook user is 33 and for Twitter it’s 31!  So, a buyer for your property probably has a profile on Facebook or may be following your realtor on Twitter.

When your realtor is active on Facebook they are not only socially connected with their friends and family who may be potential buyers.  They are also connected with many other agents in their market and across the country.  Your listing is promoted to all these agents and their buyers.  Your agent can also upload unlimited photos and videos of your house, even link to additional information on their blog.

With Twitter, an agent has the abilty to send tweets (messages) in real time to promote open houses, price adjustments, link to pictures and virtual tours, and more.  These updates can be sent to the masses instantly from a computer or even a mobile device.  Followers can use the site to request additional information or ask questions about the property in a non-threatening way.

Where will the buyer for your house come from?  It may be from a social networking contact!
