Using AR to promote listings

Recently  Jeff Dowler CRS asked if we post our listings on ActiveRain and I wanted to say...





I post all my listings. I post them coming soon. I post them when they are live in the MLS. I post them when they are too late. I post them when I do an impromptu open  house. I post them when they are sold. I post when the seller writes me an email or letter thanking me.  

And... I post any other topics that help showcase my listings and gets my properties additional exposure

I also post when buyers go to closing. I post about neighborhoods, restaurants and local business....using those links  back to my properties.

This is one of the most important reasons to be on this platform. It is a way to promote our listings to the world, to share with the public and to get the word out about how real estate is done.

It is not just about the


3 P's.

1-Put a sign in the ground.

2- Put it in the MLS.

3- Pray


Maybe there is a 4th P.

Good morning Margaret.  I agree, if I had any listing I would consider posting them to AR.

Certainly posting our listings and the change of status as the listing moves through the sales cycle should be posted in AR. We are guilty of failing to post every one, so that needs to change!

Great idea and like others have said, I have fallen behind the eight ball on some of these steps...thanks for the reminder!

I don't post them as much as I should but need to do so more often and consistently.

Taking that extra step, or extra "P"...

Part of the famous Rome Way.
