What Should You Do on Social Media as a Real Estate Agent
The hardest part about social media is that sometimes you have no idea what to post. This becomes a problem for every business owner once in a while. You know about writer’s block, but social media content block also exists. And real estate social media is no exception.
This is the one where we go back to the basics and discuss what you can, as a real estate agent, post on social media:
Property Tours for Real Estate Social Media
Property tours are a great way to fight your social media blocks. It’s so basic, but at the end of the day, that’s why people follow you- properties. They can get almost every other thing you post on social media somewhere else.
Your winning card are your exclusive listings, try to give your followers information they won’t get anywhere else. Like an exclusive tour before a property is officially up for sale. This will be a great value for your followers

Don’t get this as a discouragement to provide valuable content, but doing something simple can still be beneficial.
You could post top 10 or top 20 motivational quotes and spark people’s interest very easily. Sometimes lack of information is not the industry professional’s problem, but lack of inspiration is.
