Love Instragram, visual is where it is at right now for marketing of homes, or about anything for that matter.

I've played with it briefly, but just don't have the time to maintain it.  I don't really see it helping my business.

I have tried and stopped.  They force you to use your phone and that doesn't work for me.  Some of the work arounds are too convoluted for me.  Hootsuite has Instagram integration, but it has failed me 99%.  If I could find a way to utilize it in a more convenient fashion, then I would.  For now, it's going to the chopping block with G+.

Kimo,

I have heard pros and cons, and I think it depends on whether you are mainly focused on buyers or sellers.  A

I do not use instagram to market real estate. I am not sure how effective a marketing tool it would be in this area.

No.....I do not. Though, my 12 y. o. daughter spends a lot of time there. I think, it will be good for your location. Those pictures are spectacular.

I've been on it for about a year. I don't use it for real estate, just for fun right now. I would use it more if I could post from my laptop and not my phone. I also tried Hootesuite with it but that was no help. I use iconosquare to see what the popular hashtags are and have had luck with it.

Kimo Stowell so far, I don't use. However, I plan to use it.

We can advertise on Instagram, as per Facebook. Hopefully, will be able to generate some business there - no concrete plan for that, though.
