With all the hype of Twitter and social media you need to get on board or get left behind. I recently saw someone do this and thought it was a great idea. We follow friends, celebrities, people we don't know or people we want to know more so why not find out what is going on with the house you bought.
I represent a Builder in the Rockland area (near Ottawa, ON) and one of his listing now has a Twitter account. These are new homes being built and the entire process will be "twittered". It's a great way for the current buyers to find out what is going on with their home and also potential clients to see how things are getting done.
It is a big commitment on my part but hopefully the rewards will be there.

An online video blog of the homes will also be done shortly.
See you on Twitter!
