There are some additional points that we’d like to make here in regard to social media. The main point is this: Participate! Social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter, plus real estate specific sites such as BiggerPockets.com, give you a very effective and inexpensive means to put the word out that you are ready, willing and able to BUY HOUSES.
Social media sites are also great for sharing your success – post before and after pictures of houses you’ve rehabbed. Let everyone know you are in process of rehabbing a house for sale or rent to create early interest in the property.
If you become a Pro member on the Bigger Pockets site, you can post deals in the Marketplace Forum for others to see. This is a great opportunity for wholesalers and others who do not yet have a big Buyer’s List. We know of no better community in which to advertise your properties, and the annual fee ($150 for Pro account) is minimal considering the ability they give you to put your deals in front of other investors/buyers.
Social media is fastest growing channel in the digital world. In the coming months, we’ll greatly expand on our recommendations in this area. Keep an eye here for future updates!
