Facebook. In my experiences, the ROI from running ads is unmatched by any other social media network.

I'm happy with FB's lead gen ads.  When I've run twitter ads I wasn't happy with the results I got.  Haven't done them on LinkedIn.

 

How:

Facebook: Lab Coat Agents has many tutorials on this.  Check them out of Facebook.

Twitter and LinkedIn: Hootsuite University has free training on it.

I would say FB but, it also depends upon your immersion in each sm network, I would think. The broader your reach, I would think that would impact your ads.

I did an experiment with a residential listing last month, and a Facebook sponsored ad on my business page got a lot of attention. I need to ask the buyer's agent, but it may have brought the buyer. And it only took 5 days.
Now, I have two of my commercial properties sponsored. You can target pretty specifically, and it looks like they're getting attention as well, so I'm seeing that it does work for advertising listings, and is very inexpensive.
As far as drawing buyer and seller leads not tied to a specific property, I have not seen quality--low ballers, tire kickers and disloyal user abusers. So be careful there.

Effective and productive lead generation requires a multi-media approach.

There is no single marketing method that will justify the cost.

However, when you use multiple media sources, for example, a blog, a podcast, and direct mail - or - facebook, youtube videos, and direct mail - your audience tends to see you as a credible entity.

These multiple marketing sources also tend to interact to create synergistic effect; it will seem that you're "everywhere."

Here's some info that may help you out.

I would defer this answer to those who have had success with such ads I have not.

Pay attention to those that have had success with it like Anita Clark Candice A. Donofrio probably know better than most here.
