Adding Your Real Estate Listings To Facebook

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with myREassistant.com
There are many applications available to add your real estate listings to Facebook. So many in fact, it becomes very time consuming to look at each one and figure out which one best suits your needs. The purpose of this post is to save you time and aggravation by sharing my research as a real estate virtual assistant. realtor1. Realtor.com Realtor.com has a free Facebook application that pulls your listing information from Realtor.com and adds it to your Facebook profile in a box on your left sidebar and in a tab. All you need is your MLS ID and you are good to go. The one drawback to this application is when visitors click on your listing they are taken to the Realtor.com page and away from your Facebook profile. Once on Realtor.com, a visitor may never get back to your information. You can download the application at www.SeeMyListings.com.

realtor.com facebook app my real estate listings2. My Real Estate Listings This application is powered by www.previsite.com. The Facebook application is free, but you must subscribe to Previsite. Included in your yearly subscription is a camera kit to do your own virtual tours, a web based platform to upload, organization and management of your images. You can add floor plans and hotspots, send your tours to facebook, twitter, send video tours to youtube, get traffic statistics, email/share the tour, print flyers, etc. A yearly subscription is $579. This application received rave reviews from the agents using it and listings are displayed in an attractive manner. When accessing the application you must sign up for a Previsite account first. I was sent to a Login page with no ability to create an account. Extremely frustrating to say the least!!

center stage3. Center Stage For Real Estate This application is from Clientopoly. It displays your listings and even sold properties, publishes updates to your page and automatically generates a flyer/web page. There is a 30 day free trial and then a $96 annual subscription. Listings are displayed nicely and when clicked on a custom flyer displays. This application can be added to a Page, as well as your Profile. center for real estate my agent desk4. My Agent Desk You must be a member of My Agent Desk to use this application, but membership is free to Real Estate Professionals. Listings are added to a box in your left sidebar and to a Tab. The listing display page is not terribly exciting nor is the property flyer. I wasn’t impressed by the typos on the Info tab. my agent desk image Here is a full flyer view. real estate widget25. Real Estate Agent Widget This application gives you a separate, professional Real Estate Agent profile with the ability to add your Real Estate listings directly to a Facebook personal, business or fan page. The widget is eye catching and one I thought looked promising. But there are 2 reviews on their page and neither is complementary. Complaints are the widget is too far down on the wall and the subscription is difficult to cancel. You go to http://socialrealestatetools.com to subscribe. The cost is $129.99 annually. real estate agent widget mighty agent6. Mighty Agent Listings You must have an account at www.MightyAgent.com. Mighty Agent creates single property websites for your listings. There is a $195.00 set-up fee and a $39 month fee for 2 agents (I'm guessing a Team). Property domain registration and sign riders are also available. The summary page of listings is the nicest looking that I have seen. When you click on the listing it brings up a full page property flyer customized to the agent. Here is an example: http://selwithdel.com/?mlsnum=3850719. mighty agent summary elistit7. Real Estate – Realtor Listing Application This application is from www.elistit.com. It provides a slide show in the left sidebar of your Profile plus a summary page that will show all your listings in a wider column then the Narrow Box. It will also show your contact information and your company logo. Elistit offers a 14 day free trial and then it is $99 annually. I couldn’t get any pricing info until after I signed up for the free trial. elistit.com summary agents listing app8. Real Estate Agents Listing Application Real Estate - Agents Listing Application by SocialRealEstateTools.com lets you add your property listings and manage a professional real estate profile. This service works by combining a feature rich editor for your real estate profile and property listings for sale with custom built Facebook apps and features. This is the same application as #5 with a different name. see live listings9. See Live Listings When I clicked on this app, I got a blank page. This is what Julie Woodward-Trenker had to say: “Well I filled this out except that everytime I confirm my information, the page defaults to listing me as a Spanish Tutor instead of Residential Real Estate Agent. What's that about?????” usahomesearch10. USAHomeSearch If you have an account with www.USAhomesearch.org, you can post your listings to your Facebook profile page. I couldn’t get my login to work and there are many requests for help on the Wall for this provider. I couldn't find a sample of a summary page. agent nation11. Agent Nation The AgentNation Facebook App integrates with your AgentNation real estate listings, virtual tours, and blog displaying them on your Facebook Profile. AgentNation offers virtual tours, property flyers, Google street views, Realtor.com integration, unlimited hosting, video creation and hosting, and Facebook integration for $89 a year. There is an impressive introduction video that is worth taking a look at, https://www.agentnation.com. The summary page is easy to read and here is a sample of a virtual tour, http://www.agentnation.com/vt/1118. agent nation summary Well, my friends, your real estate virtual assistant has done her homework and compiled this extensive list of applications to help you decide how and where you want to display your listings on Facebook. I hope it saves you much time and aggravation so you can get back to your job of selling real estate. If you are confused, have questions or want help with your Facebook and social media presence, give me a call or shoot me an email. I’m here to help!!

Ruth Ann,

Very inclusinve post and the realtor.com app is simple.  Of course, it sends buyers to realtor.com not directly to the agent page.  I appreciate your research, screen shots, and presentation.  We should talk!  I see you are a CDPE too!

I have been solicited by Previsite with an offer of $299 for a year, keep the camera.  But the price you cite for them is much higher.  I assume one can expect them to boost the price in the second year??????
