15 Home Hashtags to Attract Buyers on Instagram

home hashtags

Using home hashtags, hashtags related to homeownership, on Instagram can help you get your content in front of people who are thinking about buying and selling. According to 2021 data, an overwhelming majority of recent home buyers—around 99 percent—used the internet to find a house. 

In particular, 80 percent of millennial buyers can be enticed to purchase a house sight unseen, according to the 2021 Millennial Home Buyer Report. Even more interesting, 44 percent are willing to make a purchase after they view photos of a listing, while 57 percent are open to this after watching a virtual tour (either live or filmed). 

As a real estate agent, you can harness the power of Instagram to connect with online buyers and place listings directly at their fingertips. Of course, to attract the right audience, your posts need to be visible in their searches. Use these hashtags to reach more of those potential clients on Instagram.
