Real estate is a competitive industry, and as a pro, you may be looking for ways to stand out. Instagram Reels are a new form of creative video on Instagram that can be up to 30 seconds long. Mimicking the style of Tik Tok videos, Reels are known for their visual edits or fast clips edited together. Often set to viral music, music plays a key role in these videos, and sometimes content is timed to the beat along with animated text.
You can create videos from scratch or hire a professional team to assist. Like most social media platforms, Reels provide creative tools like filters and audio effects to maximize reach.
The cool thing about Reels is that they appear in the Explore Feed on Instagram and allow anyone who uses the platform to discover your content without having to follow you first. This can help you reach new audiences and grow your following through fresh content on social media.
If you’re ready to get started using Instagram Reels for real estate marketing but aren’t sure where to begin, read on for some helpful tips below!
How To Get Started:
Before you create your first Reel, it’s helpful to get inspiration from others. Dive into Instagram, and while your watching Reels, think about how you can recreate what you see for your real estate market. Once you have your inspiration, you can quickly start creating your own!
There are three ways to create a Reel:
Create from scratch: Open the Instagram app and tap on the camera icon at the top left corner. Start filming your video directly from Instagram. Remember to keep it short, fun, and simple!
Create from an existing video: Already have prerecorded clips on your phone? Easy, tap the plus sign on the top left corner of the Instagram app and then choose “Reel”. From here you can select all the clips you want, clip them, add text, include audio, etc.

The market is always changing and it’s important to keep your followers and potential clients and customers up to speed on the latest trends in your industry. Let your audience know what’s going on with an easy-to-digest reel explaining it to them!
Let your followers know a little bit about you and what you do by sharing personal stories and memorable experiences with them! Some examples are sharing fun facts about yourself, telling them your story, or sharing what drives you on your journey.
Many people are moving all across the country and they want to know what makes their new town special! Highlight the cool new developments, eaters, and so much more with a neighborhood spotlight reel.
Gaining someone’s trust is difficult especially when the average person is being advertised nonstop on social media and television. Providing your audience with valuable information rather than promotional content can go a long way!
