I use myspace to promote my loan business. It works...sort of. You wade through a lot of "dreamers' to get to the real buyers. As the site matures, and the average age of the user increases (and it already is), myspace can be a VERY effective promotional tool

I have a myspace profile, but honestly I do not post much there or visit often. I don't post my properties there. Right now my vflyers are getting a lot of traffic on ActiveRain. I love vflyers!

No, but I am wondering how to do it--and if it might work. Will be watching responses to this closely!

I have a myspace account too for real estate. I can't say that I have actually sold anything from marketing there but I keep in touch with my friends, etc. who contact me about buying & selling - maybe it was because I stay in touch on myspace - perhaps they would have remembered me anyway? It can't hurt though!

Yea of course... but myspace is the wrong demographics. Facebook isn't meant for marketing properties but can be used for it. Aren't you the guy from Activerain?

I have, but I find it is a time eater. I have had better luck with craigslist getting inquiries on my listings than myspace.

No, I don't use My Space. With the hacking and the general use of the site, I choose to concentrate my efforts elsewhere.

I have a Myspace and find that people mainly check it personel contact or event finding. I am not sure on the how effective it would be to market property. I think the one way that it could be effective is to promote a realator's blog or website.
The one drawback to that type of promotion is that you are mainly giving that info to people on your friend list. It is hard to reach a larger audience without looking like your adding "friends" just to spam them.
The one thing that I did just think of is that if a client has a Myspace a realtor could keep them infomed of anything intresting going on in their area. It would be an easy way to stay personally in touch with your a large number of clients.
