Pinterest is a great social media marketing tool for real estate agents if used correctly. Because of its image-based layout and unique ability to create what is essentially a “virtual storefront”, being able to pin photos of property listings, neighborhoods, agents on your team, or anything else relating to your real estate business is a hip and modern way to reach today’s home buyers, as well as market yourself and professional services online.
But like every other social media website, if you have yet to setup an account, the thought of adding all your information, gathering all your photos, and diving into yet another social web account might be a little overwhelming. So to relieve just a little bit of that stress and give you a general idea of how to setup your own Pinterest account, take a look at some well-thought-out, already-established Pinterest accounts from other fellow real estate agents and brokers:

I am new at Pinterest, but am not sure if it is worth the effort. They also seem to not recognize in their categories real estate and or properties. My Pinterest page is "Southern Staying - South Africa".
