Whenever we’re discussing social networking, the topic of Google Plus for real estate always seems to come up again and again. There’s no denying that everyone who currently uses social media for real estate has their eye on Google Plus.
Google Plus is Google’s new social network launched this year. The new social platform builds on existing features of other networks while adding its own ideas in the process. Google Plus is off to an unbelievably strong start gaining 20 million users in just 24 days. A full overview of Google Plus for real estate can be found here.
Despite Google Plus’ phenomenal growth, the site is still in a beta, invite-only stage. That means that Google is still developing the site and you need an invite to be able use the network at the moment. Google’s reasoning behind this is that they are able to research how people are using the system and work out all the bugs prior to an official open-to-the-public launch.
So, how do I get an invite?
If you’re using or are looking to use social media for real estate, then you already know you need to be on Google Plus. Sellstate, being a forerunner in social media for real estate, has been part of the testing and has hundreds of invites available!

What do I do after I sign up?
Google Plus operates very similarly to Facebook. If you’re comfortable with Facebook, then learning Google Plus will be quite easy. If you’re new to social networking, or can’t figure out how it works, we suggest that you check out their overview. Google Plus has also set up an interactive tour here.
Don’t get discouraged if you don’t have many contacts on Google Plus or if you don’t see much activity (especially in comparison to Facebook). Keep in mind that Facebook has 750 million users compared to Google Plus’ 25 million. However, with 1 billion users on Google’s services, Google Plus will gain traction in time.
Also, please remember that Sellstate is building a comprehensive social media video series that will include Google Plus. For more information on our video series, click here.
