  • We’ve talked about using Twitter to promote listings both in the multifamily space and on the real estate side. If you recall, Coldwell Banker agent- David Greenlees hosted his first tweetup at one of his properties instead of a traditional Open House.

    By tweeting about the event in advance to his local Twitter community, he got more than double the number of attendees than he usually gets at his Open House events. Greenlees encouraged attendees to upload photos of the home to Twitter; he noticed a dramatic increase in pageviews to his listing of this property as as result.
    “Not only did the attendees post photos and info on the event, many of their friends on social networking websites re-tweeted and reposted the photos, giving the event a longer life past the time of the actual event,” said Greenlees.
    A tweetup is not much different, nor is it any more difficult to set up than a traditional Open House. Yet the audience that attends a tweetup is probably more likely to talk about the event, and share the details with their online networks than a traditional Open House audience. If this approach worked for David Greenlees, it may work for you too. Reach out to David on Twitter at @Davidwrg.
  • Bozzuto also left no detail out during a tweet tour of one of their newer properties, The Guilford. This a great approach to work around the prospect who says they don’t have time to check out a property. Now, they can feel as though they’ve walked through every room and seen every aspect all from their smart device.
