    Wirral Letting Agents by Social Media Following

    Being visible is the first step to letting your property - and that starts online!

    It may not be the most important part of a tenant’s discovery process when looking for a new place to call home, but traditional letting agencies are behind the times if they don’t understand that social media needs to be taken seriously.

    When it comes to finding a property, tenants begin their search online – and that means letting agents need to be as visible as possible both on search engine results pages and on social media. That’s why Wirral Homes has spent its time building an audience that can help you find your property’s next tenant.

    One of the things our experienced team has worked on since Wirral Homes was created is building our following on Facebook – a visual platform that we have found works well for property. The results are as follows:

    While we are not naïve enough to believe that a letting agents work is done when they top a table of social media followers, we use this to illustrate the change of approach to social media that Wirral Homes represents. Our lives are increasingly lived online – especially throughout the last year – and the lettings industry has remained, in large parts, restrained by a traditional approach.

    While a board outside the house and an advert on sites like Zoopla are incredibly important, there is huge untapped potential in social media for letting agents – and that is potential we intend to tap. How many times have you seen something interesting online and tagged a friend? Who would be the first to know if you were moving and what you were looking for in a new property? A social media following does not end with the number given, it’s a network of the friends of each follower – each a potential recommendation for one of the properties we’re letting at the time.

    By focusing on building a social media presence while we built this website, we were not seeking to replace traditional approaches, but looking to supplement them. In ensuring we achieve maximum exposure of the property portfolios we manage, we also minimise the time properties spend vacant – and that, in the end, is one of the letting agent’s most important jobs.
