This year offers you the same opportunity. Struggling to come up with new content? Here are some fun real estate blog ideas for 2021.

7 Fun Real Estate Blog Ideas for 2021


1. Fake Graphs

 Everyone likes those fake charts that describe your life in a subtle, funny way. You know the ones that I’m talking about—the fake ven diagrams or line graphs. You work in the real estate business long enough, and eventually you start seeing your work in this way. Add them to your blog, and you’ll surely get some laughs from your readers. What do you think of this graph? Is it true? Let us know in the comments?


2. Custom Map

 As a real estate agent, you have expert knowledge about your community. Your job requires you to gather information about the amenities available, but also who lives there and what they like to do. Some of this information is fun and useful, so why not create a map out if it? Think of a custom overlay for Google Maps with the kind of information you’d never find on Google Maps.

3. Create a Time Lapse

These days, shooting time lapse video couldn’t be easier. Most new smartphones come with a time lapse feature built natively into the photo app or easily downloadable as a separate app. Find an interesting location in your area, set up a tripod, and shoot a time lapse. Your video will help leads learn about your community and its beauty.

4. Create an Alter Ego

Not everything on your blog needs to be so serious. Take, for example, your inner dialogue. If you are the type of person that talks to yourself, consider publishing what the other half of you thinks. This can be really funny.  What would Joe Realtor do? What would bizarro Joe Realtor do? 

5. Create a Playlist

Many of us listen to music while we work. Do this enough, and you may discover that you have a sort of playlist for your day. What great content! Your playlist says a lot about you. This can help leads relate to you and learn who you are as a person and a Realtor. 

6. Do a Photo Day In the Life 

A lot of real agents produce day-in-the-life content. This is with good reason. Your life as a real estate agent is interesting. You can put a different spin on day-in-the-life with photos. Take a photo every hour of yourself or the work you are doing for a full day. Then publish it to your blog.

7. Letter to Self

The longer you work in real estate the more you grow. There may be times even when you say to yourself, “had I known, I would have done this differently.” These lessons learned make great content. Consider adding them to your blog in a letter to yourself.

Sometimes it seems my posts are basically a "letter to myself".  Almost journal-like.  Over the years of blogging on ActiveRain, I have noticed much about my own writing as well as others.  There is always something new to discover.  It might not seem that way but it's there just waiting to uncover and be found.

Some of these ideas are a bit too "out of the box" for me. Just not my style and if one thing is important it's that we speak in our own authentic voices.

PS I have never listened to music while I work... ever. I find it terribly distracting! :)

Love your list of fun ideas. I'm going to consider how I can use these on my golf blog and in my group.

Hi Michael, that's a good way to look at it. In many ways my blogging is simply giving others a window into my own inner monologue.

Thanks Will, we all have our own productivity hacks. I do music with some tasks, but not others. Data entry, for example, is definitely faster with music for me.

Hey Georgie, thanks! I agree. A time lapse can work in so many ways—a beautiful rural sunset, a busy sidewalk cafe... The applications are almost limitless.
