Cutting through the clutter of digital home search just got a bit easier for agents and brokers across the country with Market Reach, a new lead generation and brand marketing solution from realtor.com®.
As home shoppers consider their next move, the home search is often top-of-mind. Even when they’re not actively searching for listings online, chances are they’re thinking about the process. Market Reach applies behavioral insights from searches on realtor.com® to help real estate professionals reach these buyers on Facebook and Instagram.
“It takes a lot these days to make a connection that counts, and many of us connect on social media,” said Deepak Thakral, realtor.com® SVP, Product. “While many agents and brokers spend money on social engagement, these platforms are constantly changing their ad parameters. Market Reach helps agents and brokers stay on top of best practices for digital marketing, targeting home shoppers more effectively on these social platforms.”
Billions of people use Facebook and Instagram every month, but not all of those users are shopping for or selling a home. Market Reach applies realtor.com® user data to help target people who are actively searching online on realtor.com® with listing and branding ads on Facebook and Instagram that are relevant to their recent search activity.
Market Reach also helps listing agents demonstrate value for their home seller clients by increasing exposure to clients’ properties through social media ads.
