2. New Company Location

If you have recently moved, or have opened up a new office in a new city, let everyone know about it. You’ll get the word out about your new market area and highlight the fact that your company is growing.

3. Client Testimonial

The best posts are the posts where someone else is tooting your horn. Testimonials from real clients strengthen your brand, build trust with potential clients, and otherwise feel good!

4. Client Closing

This is probably my favorite type of post: the client closing photo. Even if you can’t be at the closing, ask your escrow officer or Realtor partner to snap the photo. There’s no happier client than one who just closed on their home!

7. Mortgage Glossary Term

We often get so caught up in the teeny, tiny details of mortgage loans, that we forget most people don’t know the most basic of terms and principles. Be a guiding light by explaining the terms found in any mortgage glossary.

8. Employee Spotlight

Similar to a New Employee Post, the Employee Spotlight does just that: highlights a current employee. These posts are great for introducing employees who work in ops and explaining what they do.

It’s important to keep your audience engaged with your profile. After all, engagement is what drives increased likes, comments, and shares, as more people see your posts. Asking your audience a polarizing question about two different styles is a great way to get them to engage with your content.

Other Mortgage Social Media Post Ideas

I couldn’t find active examples for the rest of my post ideas. That being said, I think all of these ideas would be a slam dunk for your mortgage social media efforts. And, since they seem to be elusive, you’d even look like a pioneer in your field!

32. Work Anniversary

Celebrate your employees’ time with your company by congratulating them on their work anniversary.

33. First Client Meeting

Snatch a photo of you with your clients at your first meeting together. Engaging your clients in your social media from the beginning of the transaction will help them stay involved once the transaction is over.

34. Client Savings Spotlight

If you helped a client save money on their refinance or saved them a bunch over a competitor on a quote, wouldn’t you want to shout that out to the world? Make sure you include specific numbers and examples of the savings.

35. Local Real Estate News

For local real estate news, it’s not that we couldn’t find any examples, we just couldn’t find many good ones. Sharing local real estate news is great; make sure you’re lending a fresh perspective on it, not just syndicating something that’s already been shared.

36. Most Expensive Market Listing

Everyone loves to see “how the other half lives”. Give your fans and followers a sneak peek into your local market’s most expensive listings. Partner with a Realtor to present the information. Who knows, you may have a jumbo loan in your near future.

37. Referral Partner Spotlight

There are few things that show your referral partners  you care like helping them grow their business. Share a personal experience you’ve had with your referral partner to strengthen the recommendation.
