There are quite a few online resources for finding the best real estate hashtags.
RiteTag is a tool that can be used to find Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram hashtags.
In our example above we searched for “realestate” (you can search with or without the # sign).
RiteTag works by finding the most popular hashtags related to your search query.
View your results in 3 categories
- Very active – Use these to get seen now (green)
- Somewhat active – Use these to get seen over time (blue)
- Not active – These hashtags are not currently active (gray). In other words, there are more valuable ways to use your Twitter character limit real estate.
It is good practice to use a mixture of both very active and somewhat active hashtags. This is because the hashtags that are very active are often so popular that your post can easily get lost in a sea of tweets when you use them.
Somewhat active hashtags, on the other hand, have just the right amount of engagement. So your messages are more likely to be seen over time and are less likely to get lost in the noise.
