Social Media Content Calendar for Real Estate Categories
There are a variety of categories you can choose from when creating a real estate social media content calendar, we will focus on the top popular categories of posts we recommend for our members because these will ensure you’re offering value to your audience and encouraging engagement from them at the same time. We’ll break each one down, as well as provide some examples of specific types of posts you can publish within each category.
Featuring your town’s local hotspots is a great way for your audience (and potential clients) to get to know the area you serve. By highlighting the local flavor, people can use your page as a way to do some preliminary research to see if they can imagine themselves living in that area.
Plus, as a real estate agent, you can build rapport with the local businesses. You can collaborate with them for special events or posts, and this could give you leverage by giving your clients a local experience no other real estate agent can offer.
By engaging with the community this way, you’ll be able to establish yourself as the friendly local expert.
Some examples of local posts are:
- highlighting your favorite local parks
- featuring market updates of the neighborhood
- your favorite coffee shops
- what it’s like to spend a night out in the town
- Local restaurant
- Local schools
- Weekend events
Real Estate Education Posts
Education is a piece of valuable information you can give to your audience about the housing market. Remember, you’re the expert in the field and have a lot of interesting tips, terminology, and tidbits of information you can teach your audience about — the pieces of information that aren’t always easy for people not in the business to find on their own.
The more you can establish yourself as a reliable and knowledgeable resource, the more your clients and potential clients will trust you and keep coming back to your content in order to learn more interesting things about the market.
Some examples of educational posts are:
- real estate market vocabulary
- seller tips and hacks
- how to stage a home
- what the buying process is like
- general real estate 101 posts
Property posts are anything and everything about property — whether it be about the property in the community that you serve or general information that your audience should know about. These are great types of posts because when it comes down to it all, property is the reason why your real estate business exists!
Show your audience that they should be coming back to your page by updating them about the latest property listings and trends.
Some specific examples of property posts are:
- new listings in your area
- why location is so important
- tips on how buyers can save for their next or first home
- a property that was just sold
- what investment properties are
- open houses in your neighborhood
Real Estate Tips Posts
Real estate tips are super valuable because oftentimes consumers get lost and overwhelmed with all the new and complicated processes that come with buying and/or selling a home. Giving them tips on how to succeed will build trust and will establish yourself as a true expert in this field.
Some examples of real estate tips are:
- various home maintenance tips
- interior decor hacks and DIYs
- the importance of remodeling a home
- first-time homeowner tips
- staging tips
Connect & Interactive Posts
We talked about the valuable pieces of information, industry secrets, and tips you can offer to your audience, but you can’t forget that each business needs a little fun behind it on social media that deserves to be spotlighted as well!
The above post categories can only go so far when people don’t even know how to identify your brand. Connecting with your audience on a human level, and reminding them that there is an actual person behind the business with interactive, funny, and connection posts will solidify the budding friendship you’re building with your followers.
Some examples of connection and interactive posts are:
- A behind the scenes
- thank you posts
- Holiday posts
- fun facts posts
- referral requests
- Engaging Questions
- Humor Posts
