Forget what your niece told you; Instagram is for more than selfies and food pics. It’s a fantastic app that will keep you in the news feeds of clients and give you a chance to showcase your unique personality and home listings in a lighthearted way.
With over 800 million active users, Instagram has proven to be a useful marketing tool for real estate agents. What started out as a simple app to share photos and follow family and friends has turned into a marketing opportunity and a necessary part of the social strategy mix for real estate agents.
We’ve tracked down the real estate-focused Instagram accounts that get all the love from clients for the creative, savvy updates they share. If you’re a real estate agent looking to up your ‘gram game, perusing these accounts is a great way to draw inspiration for your own account.
