Why you need TikTok for real estate marketing
If you want to use TikTok for real estate agent marketing, you’ve come to the right place.
First, it’s important to talk about why TikTok is so valuable for real estate agents.
The reality is that it has massive reach, and it’s a highly engaging platform for younger generations, including both Millennials and Gen Z users. These demographics are starting to buy their own homes, including a big wave of first home purchases. When users are buying their first home, that’s the best chance to snag them as clients.
And since TikTok is a discovery-focused platform, with relevant content popping up in people’s feeds, it’s a great way to build trust and reach all at once. This characteristic makes it a highly effective lead generation platform.
Worth pointing out— you can also repurpose this content through Instagram and Facebook reels to get the biggest bang for your marketing buck.
7 TikTok real estate marketing ideas
Need TikTok content ideas for your marketing campaigns?
Let’s take a look at seven real estate TikTok ideas that can get you the reach, engagement, followers, and (most importantly!) clients that you’re looking for.
1. Reflections on buyer, seller, or other agent behavior
Have a strong sense of humor and some killer comedic timing?
A funny take on buyer, seller, or other agent behaviors currently happening in the market is an easy way to create relatable, funny, and highly shareable content.
Make sure you’re never being mean, but finding content that highlights relatable experiences is the way to go.
2. Updates on the market
Want to prove how much you’ve got your finger on the pulse of your local market?
Share updates about what’s happening in the areas where you’re helping buyers and sellers. Talk about average prices, the amount of time homes are sitting, the average number of offers, and anything that’s relevant. The practice of sharing updates is timely, and it’s relevant right now.
Agents who are able to show that they’re up to date (and not just “casually” selling homes) will have better luck attracting high-value clients.
3. Quick resources clients need
When it comes to TikTok for real estate agents (or any small business!), you can’t go wrong with providing quick resources that potential clients need.
You can do this fast, thanks to the short-form video content.
Fast facts like minimum credit scores or down payments needed to buy a home can actually convince users that they can buy a home— even if they didn’t think they could.
You could also share quick videos showing things that potential buyers often overlook, or repairs sellers should make before listing their home.
This list is a good starting point.
Again— this can help you prove that you’re knowledgeable and trustworthy.
4. Breakdowns of how the home buying process works
This ties into the tip above, but one thing that first-time home buyers often need is basic information about what to expect.
Do they find a realtor before they find a home? Do they need to be prequalified or find a lender before making an offer? Should buyers be ready to move when they’re making offers?
(Of course, the answer is yes to all of the above, but they don’t know that).
If you’re using TikTok for real estate marketing, consider creating video series and playlists walking users through the buying and selling processes.
5. Before & afters of a staged home
Do you help your clients with staging?
Help your clients see the value of letting you properly stage their home before listing, or use videos of renovations showing buyers how a fresh coat of paint and maybe some updated cabinets can make all the difference in homes they’re considering.
6. Show properties you’re listing
With the owner’s permission, consider sharing TikTok videos of properties you’ve listed.
Not only can this show the caliber of homes that you’re selling (and help you find both buyers and sellers!), but it can also give you a chance to promote potential listings to maybe find a buyer for them.
7. Consider using TikTok advertising
When you want a fast boost in reach, you should think about using TikTok Ads.
TikTok’s self-serve advertising platform makes it easy to promote content that you’ve already published on the platform. You can reach cold audiences, or use the ads to reach potential or existing clients with whom you’ve already connected.
The right tools can help with this, making it easy to set up custom audiences on an automated basis. (We’ll talk more about this in a minute.)
