15 Easy Reel Ideas for Realtors

By Mihaela Lica Butler | February 3, 2024

Microcontent, such as Instagram Reels, is a game changer. Did you realize that 91% of Instagram users watch Reels weekly? However, not all agents take advantage of this platform. You may make a name for yourself by posting one reel every other day.

Train others to come to your account for local knowledge. But don't limit your material to real estate; provide followers with engaging content even after transactions.

Here are 15 easy reel ideas that will help you build your brand and reach broader audiences and followers who will potentially turn into customers:

  • Begin exhibiting properties—custom builds, model houses, and premium listings.
  • Highlight local companies, supporting and publicizing them.
  • Promote community attractions and events and serve as the go-to resource for entertaining activities.
  • Share your knowledge: industry updates, tips and tricks, staging before-and-afters. 
  • Take followers behind the scenes and show them a typical day in the life of a real estate agent. 
  • Express your individuality and convey stories that are relatable.
