As a real estate agent and/or business one of the greatest challenges faced is finding the right network to help successfully grow your business.  With all of the different components needed for a thriving real estate team, the ability to create a large network through social media is a tremendous, and essential, business asset.

It is recommended to use large social networks, such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Craigslist, and YouTube to build your business. With so many people online today it has become imperative to connect with fellow investors, agents, contractors, buyers, and sellers through social media. There is no other place in the world that enables you access to so many people for free.

One of the advantages of using social media is the ability for you to find specific information about targeted groups or individuals. For example, on Twitter you could create an account that has virtually every real estate investor in the country.  When a property is sold make sure that this list gets some extra tweets about the property, so all prospective investors on the list have the chance to contact you.  On average, 50-100 investors from Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube will look at an online property. This is free advertising and these are contacts that an insurance agent would generally not otherwise meet.

The power of using social media for real estate is tremendous, so take advantage of the trends that are occurring across the nation and join real estate investors who are using social networking to create a better real estate investment environment.
