Promote Listings on Nextdoor with Posts

As a real estate agent with a new listing, you want to feature it in as many places as possible to find a buyer quickly. But you also want to show up in front of relevant customers who may be interested in the home and neighborhood. Neighbors turn to Nextdoor to learn more about local homes for sale, about their own property value, and to interact with the local real estate expert for their home-related questions. For real estate agents who advertise on on Nextdoor, the opportunity is ripe for marketing your listings to local homeowners.

Once you claim and verify your business page, you'll be able to share Business Posts.   Your posts will show up in the neighborhood newsfeed, which is what neighbors see first when they sign into Nextdoor – and where your posts will get the most visibility. The newsfeed is the best place to feature your upcoming or recently sold listing.
