Here’s a new Twitter tool or app for real estate agents like you and me. By reading this post, I am making the assumption that you are a Twitter user and that you are tweeting 3-5 times a day about real estate topics and your listings. If you are populating your tweets with property details and a link to your website with photos and more information about that specific properties, then you are tweeting the old fashion way (as if tweeting can be old).
Let’s face it. 140 characters is no where near enough space to fully describe a listing. So, the makers of Tweetlister, a tool for organizing and advertising listings, combines the functions of a tweetlater, bit.ly, which is a click tracking service, and lead capture pages into one real estate agent friendly service.
Twitter users with properties for sale or rent, can fill out a form about said properties, add one primary photo for free, link to a virtual tour, track and capture leads right from with the TweetLister application. Plus, with TweetLister, you can schedule how often and how many times the tweet about said properties should go out to your followers, hence the tweetlater function.
Tweetlister is still in Beta form, and as I was attempting to add a listing, it crashed twice. I suspect that it was getting slammed with users, which is a GOOD sign.
One real question that comes to mind: Is this a great tool or just another system you have to maintain?
I say it’s a great tool for Twitter obsessed real estate agents like me. At some point, Tweetlister will develop a following and it will become another engine consumers (buyers and sellers) might use to determine who has what for sale and at what price? Or even, what brokers, realtors or agents are using social media marketing strategies to get homes sold?
I feel that despite the greatness of the tool, agents with the most listings wins! In other words, listings are still the name of the game. Once you have lots of houses for sale, you have to get them out there on different medimums or platforms to get buyers and sellers to call you.
It is important to note that Tweetlister is not exclusively for real estate agents i.e. for sale by owners can advertise on Tweetlister. It could be another source for real estate listings for agents who prospect FSBOs.
It’s too early to tell if Tweetlister will catch on and if it will be worth your time. Only time will tell.
