We’ve put together this list of the best real estate Instagram accounts to follow for a daily stream of interesting real estate content at your fingertips.

As a real estate agent, Instagram can be one of the most powerful tools at your disposal — a way to both search for and market beautiful listing photos, stay up to date on industry news and even find leads.

Just like agents should be using Instagram to market themselves, it’s also a good idea to follow those who know how to work the platform successfully for inspiration. In 2018, Instagram is home to just about every kind of real estate account imaginable — from major companies like Zillow to indie brokerages and ‘Instagram celebrities’ who sell multi-million-dollar homes straight from the platform.

That said, knowing who to follow isn’t always obvious. We’ve put together this list of the best real estate Instagram accounts that will bring a daily stream of interesting and helpful real estate content at your fingertips.

I need your help … as some of you may know I am currently in the process of buying land and designing a custom dream home with my architect. ⁣ ⁣ We finalized floor plans and now trying to decide on the front elevation of the home. Everything in both versions is the same, except for the very center of the house and the roof line above front door. ⁣ ⁣ I love both versions: option (A) adds another dimension, and option (B) exudes that European flair I love so much.⁣ ⁣ This will be my very own dream home and I am planning on living in this home for a while, but it’s always very important to think of resale with real estate and design as universally appealing as possible… that is why I will go with the version that is going to get more votes. ⁣ ⁣ Which version do you like more?⁣ ⁣ You can follow the entire process of this home being built on my personal page @katerumson ⁣ ⁣ My architect: @planarchitecture ⁣ ⁣ #newconstruction #customhome #dreamhome #construction #architecture #housedesign #houseexterior #exterior #newjersey #njhomes #njluxuryrealestate #newjerseyhomes #njrealestate #njluxury #monmouthcounty #bergencounty #morriscounty #hudsoncounty #essexcounty #somersetcounty #passaiccounty

14. Architectural Digest (@archdigest)

While not directly real estate-related, this magazine’s Instagram is an excellent source of design and home styling inspiration.

When longtime clients and friends of @kenfulk described their dream Mexican retreat, the designer knew it would be no ordinary home. He writes about the experience in this month’s AD: “The clients had long admired the work of the Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta, and they had hoped to one day have a house designed by his vaunted firm (@legorreta_arqs). They took inspiration from the spectacular oceanfront setting and their favorite memories from beach locales around the globe—Tulum, St. Barts, Ibiza, Mykonos. The task of translating these references into a visual language fell to me. Through the combined efforts of my team, Víctor Legorreta (Ricardo’s son and successor) and project architect Marcela Cortina Rodríguez, and the clients, who were intimately involved throughout the process, a collective narrative developed. From the beginning, this house was going to be grand—not only in scale but in aesthetic. Legorreta designed a low-slung 30,000-square-foot house that slowly reveals itself as you enter and wend your way through a series of spaces, eventually leading up to a full view of the Sea of Cortez in all its azure splendor. For such a large house, it’s imperative that you don’t experience it all at once, but instead there’s a sense of exploration when you aren’t quite sure what’s going to come next…We wanted to create a sense of ‘otherness’—an oasis in the Baja desert. In fact, water features throughout the house give it the feeling of an island floating on the sea (that water also has the added benefit of cooling the air on the hottest of days). As you look across the central courtyard’s large reflecting pool—where a hydraulic platform rises at the touch of a button to accommodate a dining table and chairs—you see straight through the double-height living room to an infinity pool painstakingly colored to match the hue of the water beyond.” See more of the home through the link in our profile.
