Part II: Top 9 Real Estate Social Media Sites

Here are Peter's last top 4 real estate social media sites that you have all been waiting for. For the real estate professionals looking to grow their business, I hope this helps you in some way, shape or form.

6. Meetup Another great site to create relationship and connections for yourself. Just like LinkedIn, Meetup is a great way to network in your area.
Action Tip: Form a Meetup Group in your area. This is a great way to mastermind with other investors. Your imagination are the limits to what you can do there are.

7. Trulia Over the past year, Trulia has become very popular. Many buyers and sellers head over to that site in search of finding answers and/or selling their home. So, how can you benefit there? Through their Trulia Voices.
Action Tip: Trulia Voices gives people the ability to ask their question and for expert to answer those questions. This is the place where you can answer common questions for people who are in need of selling their house.

Hmmm, could this be a way of finding possible sellers? I think so… Make sure you answer their questions and don’t blatantly advertise yourself. Most of all, don’t spam or you’ll get banned. I just looked on their site and there was one lady looking for a foreclosure and short sale specialist in her area. I don’t think it can get any easier than this :)

I’m on a roll. Here’s 2 more bonus sites…

8. Twitter What the hell is twitter you ask? if you haven’t already heard of this site, Twitter is a social media site that uses micro-blogging technology. Basically, you post short posts on their site, under 140 characters. You can follow and be followed by others. This site is focused more on building personal relationships than anything else. I am planning on experimenting with this platform in the next few months and will keep you updated.
Action Tip: Signup for twitter and you’ll get addicted. Don’t believe me, try it? :)

9. Zillow’s Duscussions Similar to Trulia’s Voices, you can use Zillow to answer questions from people that need answer. By answering questions, you become an authority and who knows, you might get your next deal there. As always, don’t spam and do be selfish.
