Have You [Insert Social Media Platform]ed About Your Listing Today?

Have you tweeted about your new listing? Did you take a picture and +1 it on Google Plus? Are your friends liking it on Facebook? Is your tour going viral thanks to YouTube?

Sounds silly and yet I’m serious. Have you Googled your listing yet? I bet the person who wants to buy it has. They’ve map searched it, checked its walkability and researched the school district. Have you?

See, you can make a big impact by thinking local. Real local. Whatever that new home owner would want to know about the home — from the cable provider to the nearest dog park — you should be giving it to them. They want to know what you know… and some of what you don’t. So, go through your current listings and start blogging (and all other forms of social media) about that which you’d want to know. Important stuff, like where’s the nearest Pinkberry?

  1. All of the above things can help Google to index your listings fast.

    I would say creating a well optimized listing on Google + can help you a lot in getting found in local Google search fast.

    Here is a tip:

    Don’t forget to add your local place name while crafting Google plus listing post title. Google + status updates got indexed by Google real fast and often can end up getting better & quick search engine rankings compare to your website 🙂

    Wow, nice tip Rana! But what do you mean by local place name? Like the name of the listing place or area? Hmmmmm

    Thanks, Melissa for the post! How is California? I’ve been to LaJolla (San Diego). Love it there. How is Rancho Cucamonga, interesting?! Trying to see or more YPN (realtors).

  3. Thanks, Rana and Cindy!

    Cindy, La Jolla is wonderful and I’m about 2 hours north of that. Rancho Cucamonga is in the Inland Empire which is usually talked about as being one of the hardest hit areas in the country. We’re survivors and pulling through wonderfully!
