There's a lot more to RPR than working with buyers, nailing listing presentations, prospecting neighborhoods, and managing successful open houses. In fact, Realtors® who want to up their game when it comes to social marketing can quickly adapt RPR data into an ongoing campaign that will definitely draw attention from would-be clients.

For example, using RPR to share interesting facts about your marketplace on Facebook is a great way to create a series of attention grabbers for your selling area. We've created instructions on how to easily access the data below—but first, check out these samples of how your campaigns might look using RPR's neighborhood data.

Ready for your first Facebook post?

Create your own "Six Things About My Marketplace" campaign. Here are a few simple steps to get started.

  1. Sign onto RPR at narrpr.comnarrpr.com.
  2. From within the navigation above the search bar, choose Neighborhoods.
  3. Type in the area you wish to promote (by neighborhood, city, ZIP or county).
  4. Select Enter.

Note that you can also choose from further drop down options, such as Exact, Within, or Nearby.

More on what you'll find...

RPR's Neighborhood pages reveal what we call the "five tabs." Each tab contains a treasure trove of data on the housing, people, economy, and quality of life that make up your area. And that's where we find the heart of your next social media campaign.

TIP: Be sure to check out About this data found next to your data fields for details on how the calculations were determined.

  1. On the Summary tab, check out median estimated home values, median sales price vs. sales volume, median listing price vs. listing volume, population of children by age group, and population of adults by age group.
  2. The Housing tab displays the neighborhood's characteristics compared to the county, state, and nation. You'll also find easy-to-read graphs on the price, size, age, and number of bedrooms on homes sold in the area. The side-by-side chart also includes comparisons for home ownership, rent, and information about permits and buildings.
  3. The People tab gets to the heart of who lives in the neighborhood. The data measures population counts, median age, gender, and education levels. You'll also find breakdowns of population of children and adults by age group, the number of households with children, income brackets, occupations, and even voting patterns.
  4. The Economy tab paints a clear picture of that by displaying income per capita and median household, as well as employment figures.
  5. The Quality of Life tab, our final destination, is particularly helpful when conveying weather, commute times, transportation options, and water quality—all in a side-by-side, neighborhood/county/state/country comparison.

Lastly, be sure to wrap up each of your social media campaigns with a solid call to action. Offering to instantly deliver an RPR report helps to strengthen your position as a market expert, plus helps you to capture contact information for your new prospects.
