Creating a Neighborhood or Community page on Facebook

By
Real Estate Team Leader with eXp Realty - Nest Atlanta Team

I've been reading some fantastic posts about creating your business page on Facebook in order to reachFacebook out to more than 55 million users (and potential home buyers and sellers!), but how about expanding your visibility and creating a community group on Facebook?

I created a new group for my neighborhood, Oakhurst in Decatur GA, and have had some wonderful feedback from my fellow neighbors.  Its a great way to get your name out there as you promote local events, fundraisers, homes for sale, real estate market data... and even a garage sale or two!  As the "officer" of the group, Facebook allows you to send emails and notices to all of the group members, post your Active Rain blog entries and so much more.

The "Oakhurst News, Entertainment and Real Estate Group" has only been around for about two months, but more than 40 people have joined -- without me even promoting the web page!

If you're interested in establishing a neighborhood or community page for your area, there are just a few simple steps: 

1)  From your main Facebook Home page, go to the "Applications" menu (on the right side of the page)

2) Select "Groups"

3)  A new page will open up and at the top you will see a button called "Create a new Group"Create a new group on Facebook

 

 

4) Once you click on the link, you just have to fill out a short form -- Group name, description, group type, etc.  In the true Facebook fashion, you can send a notice out to your Facebook Friends and ask that they join the group. 

HAVE FUN & LET ME KNOW HOW YOUR NEW FACEBOOK GROUP IS WORKING FOR YOU.  Also, if you have any other creative things you do on Facebook, please share!

All the best,ATL home search in Atlanta GA

Hi Trisha!  I would put your website info on the page -- it will help drive traffic to your website, allow buyers and sellers to find out a bit more about you, etc.  Best of luck to you!

Did you form your page as a group or neighborhood and whichever one you did, why?

I realize your idea here is old, but I am new to Acitverain and searched for how to create a FB Group for Neighborhoods and found this...thanks so much for the help.  I am going to set this up, but was hoping to also give my neighbors information that they all want to know about the market... sales data, etc. but am reluctant to post past sales info, since new neighbors moving in may not want the price they paid broadcast on the internet (even though it's public record anyway, and already on the net if you know where to look).  I know agents who mail the data out and homeowners like getting it.  What's your opinion on putting this type of data on the FB group page?
