I have been doing real estate social media posts for several years now and have learned many tricks on how to get people to engage with your real estate.
Are you in the real estate industry? Do you share on social media? This week, I am sharing social media post ideas for the real estate industry to get more engagements.
Each post idea describes in a little bit more detail what additional information you can add to each post idea.
Below are the 30 social media post ideas for the real estate industry.
Creative Real Estate Industry Social Media Post Ideas
New listings – You may know this one already since a lot of realtors do this right now. But, instead of just listing the post and adding the front of the house. Try adding the additional images and adding “nearby” conveniences, like near schools, shops, etc… Customize it to that area is a great way to entice engagement.
Local Activities – Are there yearly events or gatherings that the public may know about? Share them on social media.
Interiors of homes – Sharing the inside of homes work great! People like to get design inspiration from others. If you have stock images you can use, create a collage of like images and share them in one post.
Benefits of living in an area – If you are located in a micro area and you only service one town or two, you can ask yourself, “why would people live here?” Then determine the benefits of living here.
Progress of new construction – If you are a realtor and sell new construction homes, you can also show the progress of breaking ground, when particular parts are finish and the interior areas.
Holiday greetings – Share things like Happy New Year is very common these days. But, you can also add a spin on it and say Happy New Year, planning to sell your home this year? Start now. Visit our Creative Tips to Make Engaging Holiday Greetings Images for ideas.
What are you up to? – Share different behind the scenes things you are doing to improve your services or to enhance your skills.
Sponsored events – Do you have affiliates that you work with like plumbers, professional organizers, or electricians? Do they give you a referral commission for telling others about them? Share them on a post. Be sure to say in the post that they are (affiliates).

Theater activities in the area – Some clientele may love the theater. Share events and performances that are happening right now.
Local events – These local events could be things that are new to your area. You could have a shredder event that is happening for the first time this year or you could share a community recycling event.
Family event activities – Do you sell to families with kids? Share events that are intended for families and young children. People like FREE family events.

As you can see, they are not all about real estate. They show a personal side too. A business page doesn’t always need to be so formal.
