Connect with us on social media!

As a general rule, at North County Property Group we try to keep up with our blogging by sharing useful and relevant information on the North County San Diego real estate, rental, and home prices market.  We share information on our blog continually in an effort to stay current and to keep our customers and tenants current.  Another great way to track what is going on is to engage with us through social media.  What do we mean by “engage”?  Depending on which social media site it could mean “follow”, “friend”, “connect”, “subscribe”, “comment” and even “review” us.  We share all of our blog posts through social media and also share interesting San Diego County news, listings, and insights on a regular basis … in other words it is a great way to stay up on North County Property Group but an even better way to stay informed about what is going on in the local real estate market.

Here are Some Social Media Locations Where You Can Find Us!

Another cool place to connect with North County Property Group and track our updates and information is on Google Plus.  With the growth of gmail as the defacto email standard, Google Plus has increasing become easy to connect with other users of the gmail and Google platform.

Social Media Property Management

By Bob Preston

Is the real estate market still in the dark ages when it comes to finding a property to rent or lease? Sure, Craig’s List and other online rental sites have emerged to make the process of finding a new home easier but the vast majority of Property Management firms are still old school and not using social media property management to their advantage.  What do I mean by old school? Well, if you want to find the best and brightest tenants you have to have your property visible where they communicate. Let me tell you, that’s not walking down the street and peering through the glass at printed flyers of homes for rent. Nor is it flipping through a Rolodex and calling their contacts. Nope, the best, brightest, and most well-to-do tenants today are finding properties online. Further, chances are they’re doing it on their mobile smartphone or tablet. looking at social media property management to find their connections, and not from their computer. North County Property Group has embraced social media in property management and is leveraging it through our 10-Point Marketing Program to find high caliber tenants and get properties rented fast  through FacebookTwitter and YouTube in addition to online advertising on rental sites and other traditional means (signs, flyers, open houses, etc.)!
