There was someone that spun this for us a few months ago. He was touting this as the latest & greatest. But I think it was his attitude of 'we are idiots' if we don't get on board that turned me off.

Never even gave it a look.

I watched a not-so-short real estate video online, prepared by a twenty-something agent in the midwest that was supposed to be the best and most trendy example of snapchat for real estate that there is.

The video quality was jittery and grainy and the presentation depicted one property for ten minutes, which would have lost the attention of any consumer at the one-minute mark. It's getting a lot of hype, but I haven't been impressed so far.

Look up the demographics for Snapshat.  If you think that group is going to buy homes, let me know

NO. I've heard of it and do believe it is catering to the 30 something generation. Not sure it would be a place to generate business but rather another place to suck up time and distract from what I need to focus on.

My daughter uses it, but after her description of the short-life it has online before it is auto deleted, I can't imagine its use in real estate. It would be interesting for someone who uses it successfully for real estate to tell us how to and the benefits.

Nope.  Nor do I intend to.

Who's your target?  Are you looking for listings?  My target is older and more established (and wealthier).  Very few of those on snapchat own homes...so therefore, few potential sellers.  Seems like a lot of work to get those buyers.  Low return on time IMO.

I have no idea if it generates leads. At some point we have only so much time to do social media. Never sure if things like snapchat aren't but a flash in the pan.
