Twitter

Twitter is an excellent resource for the Sandwich Generation, with plenty of useful tweeple (twitter people), links, and info about a wide range of caregiving topics. At SandwichINK, I do a weekly article with the best caregiving and grandparenting links for the week from Twitter. It’s also a great resource for the Sandwich Generation when it comes to real estate info and, starting today, I’ll be doing an article periodically about all things Twitter, real estate, and Sandwich Generation. The topics can range from buyers to sellers to renters and even to real estate agents and investors.

And YES, I’d love to have you join the conversation with us at Twitter by following me @SandwichINK. See you soon! 🙂

Isn’t this the perfect verse for waiting on a real estate transaction!  🙂   Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for Him.

Did you know that Twitter is an excellent resource for those involved in or interested in property investments. I have been active on Twitter for several months. As you may guess, based on SandwichINK, I have several interesting “Tweeple” I regularly read who write about all things caregiving. But I also have many who write about real estate.

From real estate agents to real estate investors to real estate blog-geeks, there are plenty on Twitter with great ideas and info. When I searched Twellow, the Yellow Pages for Twitter, the key words “real estate” show over 25,000 listings! Most of the ones I follow are in the real estate business and I find plenty of useful items of interest, even for those of us who aren’t real estate agents. I’ve learned great marketing tips, encouraging real estate info, and home staging ideas from different tweeps. Here are just a few of the ones I’m following and enjoying:

@BlogBoy2 – The infotech for Sugar Pine Realty in Sonora frequently has fascinating bits of info.

@PChaney – A social media expert who writes on a wide variety of issues, including real estate. I’ve enjoyed his real estate book, Realty Blogging: Build Your Brand and Out-Smart Your Competition, as well.

@nik_nik – Her site is an excellent real estate technology knowledge base and her tweets show that.

@realtors – As you can imagine, the National Association for Realtors (NAR) tweets plenty of interesting links on real estate, including a great article on the 2009 first time home buyer tax credit. That’s a great article to pass on to our adult kids and grandkids!

@TerriMurphy – Author of the real estate agent’s book, Terri Murphy’s E-Listing and E-Selling Secrets: For the Technologically “Clueless,” which I have and enjoyed, she posts about marketing in a wide variety of areas

@RemaxFoothills – a real estate company from South Carolina with some real estate tweets of interest.

@StagingFlorida – A home stager with  interesting links and info primarily centered around staging your home for sale. I’m a big beliver that home staging can help sell a home fast, so I’m always on the lookout for new tips in that area.

@Aging_In_Place – And last, but not least, one of my caregiving Tweeple who shares my real estate interests. His site is an excellent resource for helping you help your aging parents stay in their own home, or be more comfortable and safe in your home.

This is just a handful of all the great real estate tweeters out there. I’ll keep my eyes open and add to this list down the road. In the meantime, enjoy their tweets, and do follow me as well.   🙂    @SandwichINK.  I write about real estate, caregiving, and other items of interest from the multi-generational perspective as a member of the Sandwich Generation of caregivers, grandparents, and more.
