April 2, 2015 Pinterest for Realtors: The Importance of a Pinterest Presence and Must-Have Boards By Catie McClure

To some, it may be obvious how Pinterest can positively affect your real estate business. The fact that the shelf life of pins on Pinterest far exceeds the shelf life of any other posts on social media, is reason enough alone to build a presence on Pinterest. With the busy lifestyles of Realtors these days, it may not seem a priority to have a presence on Pinterest but it is. For starters, Pinterest has grown exponentially in popularity over the past few years and it would be foolish to not have a presence there as a Realtor. The fact that people (mainly women who are 3x more likely to pin or repin) go to Pinterest especially for real estate related ideas and suggestions, should be motivation enough to enhance your presence and extend your marketing efforts to Pinterest. Home decor is among the top 3 searched items on Pinterest. So,to gain positive traction with your real estate Pinterest account make sure you start off with your Pinterest boards with this in mind. The following are Pinterest board suggestions that appeal to both buyers and sellers of real estate. Just remember, be creative and personalize to your personality!

  • Local Community Board
