Have you ever thought about using Twitter to sell your home?
If you haven’t, we recommend you start thinking about it now! Twitter has hundreds of millions of users and is constantly growing, meaning there is a massive market to try and sell your home to.
If you’re interested in learning how to manage your Twitter account to help sell your home, check out these five steps:
1. Find A Twitter-Savvy Real Estate Agent
If you’re looking to use Twitter to sell your home, you’re definitely going to want your real estate agent to be on the same page. Making sure that your real estate agent uses Twitter and knows it well is important. If they’re not familiar with social media, this won’t be helpful. The Twitter algorithm is constantly changing. Real estate agents who spend time selling homes on Twitter have been through those changes and are up-to-date with the new ones. Research your real estate agent and ask them about using Twitter.
2. Make Your House Visually Appealing
If your home has a visual impact on someone, they’re far more likely to want to buy it or at least check it out. People scroll through their feeds and if they see something interesting, they’ll stop and engage with it. A number of great photos can draw somebody in, get them to stop scrolling, and hopefully get you a sale.
We recommend either hiring a professional photographer to get you some photos or taking some quality photos yourself.
3. Find The Best Times To Tweet
The best times to tweet are going to depend on a lot of things, including location and demographics. Luckily, when it comes to real estate, there are a few different guidelines that you can follow. The best thing that you can do personally is to check out your own engagement on your profile.
4. Build a Following To Help Spread The Word
The more and more followers that you have on Twitter, the more and more the word on your home will be spread through re-tweets. To do this, you can begin following relevant businesses or accounts and engage with their content so that hey hopefully engage back. Even if they don’t, it will at least put your profile and content in front of those accounts’ followers.
Think of the demographic that would purchase your home and engage with accounts that that demographic would engage with.
5. Make Use Of #Hashtags
Hashtags can make a big impact on the possibility of a sale as well. We recommend looking at other popular homelisters on Twitter and seeing what hashtags they are using to sell their homes. Click on those hashtags and get a good idea of how they are being used too so that you can use them in the proper manner. This can help connect users with your home’s listings and garner more traffic.
Twitter can be confusing for the lot of us that don’t use it every single day, especially when you consider that it’s become second nature to the younger generation. With that said, it doesn’t have to be confusing, and the more you use it, the more and more you’ll be able to connect with real people in your area and attract more leads for your home.
