twitter for real estateWe sourced the web for some of the hottest real estate individuals and organizations who regularly blog and tweet about their experience with selling, buying and/or renting properties.

To be honest, there aren't many real estate bloggers or thought leaders on the internet worth mentioning or following, but the ones we found are included below for you to keep an eye on.

We wanted these men, women, and media outlets to meet 3 main selection criteria:

  • They had to be active on Twitter and share practical advice on real estate topics.
  • They had to have the guts to tell the truth and talk from personal experience.
  • They had to make real estate fascinating and educational.

Enjoy the post and be sure to connect with these folks yourself. Learning from each other is one of the best ways to improve your business, your brand, and your future.

And by the way, I appreciate your shares and social votes!

When a house sold “on the market”, that means it’s usually listed by a real estate agent and sold after several potential buyers have seen the property and at least one has made an offer. Houses sold on the market will often be sold for approximately the same amount that other similar houses in the area have sold for. This is called “market price”.
