I'll admit to not truly understanding the whole "tag thing".  With that being said, I throw all kinds of them to my entries:  name, company, address, topic, area, zip codes.  No clue if any of it helps and I should add the whole topic to my "things to learn" list.

I usually fill it up with something, but I doubt that those tags do anything. Katerina Gasset, does AR tag space makes a difference? Fill it up or skip?

Lots of tags!  They may or may not help with search and SEO, but they are helpful to me when I need to track down an older post.

Just like "localism" in your post, make your tags detailed and specific.

I don't usually tag on AR.  When I do use hashtags, I do include my company name in there and I'll put as many as seem appropriate in the body.  When I'm at my computer (and I remember to) I'll make the first comment be full of tags relating to real estate.  Just be careful not to get shadow banned from having too many unrelated ones (like tagging MAGA or the latest trending tag) to try and get more views.  Allegedly the sites are onto that tactic now.
