Houzz: The Social Site For Home Enthusiasts

Interior Design

Social media is a great way to connect, but sites like Facebook and Pinterest are packed full of all different kinds of people posting all different kinds of things. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a social site dedicated solely to real estate and home design? Good news! There is!

Houzz is similar to Pinterest where all kinds of home photos are posted by those with a passion for design and renovation. The site is related to Facebook as well as users can engage in discussions and conversations through forums or comments. The site’s name “Houzz” comes from a combination of “house” and “buzz” and has already attracted more than 15 million monthly users! The site is truly an outlet for passionate, proud, or aspiring homeowners to share their ideas, engage with others, and find inspiration for remodeling or design projects.

Luckily, the invitation has been extended to real estate professionals when, in March, Houzz launched a category specifically for those working in the field. Many real estate agents have found the site an excellent and unique way to connect with their clients, inspire them about homeownership, and help them better visualize the potential of properties. The wide collection of photos on Houzz includes many before and after images, displaying how remodeling and design can make such a drastic transformation. What a great way to help clients avoid being distracted by aesthetics!—an all too common problem for many home buyers. In addition to chatting on discussion forums, or collecting photos on Houzz to create “ideabooks” to share with clients, real estate agents can also use the site to showcase their own work by posting photos of homes they just listed, recently sold, helped stage, or anything that shows their real estate expertise and enthusiasm.

For anyone excited about home design, renovation, and exploring different styles and trends, Houzz is for you! Join today and let us know what you think!

  1. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really
    one thing which I think I might by no means understand.
    It seems too complex and very extensive for me.
    I am having a look ahead on your subsequent post, I’ll try to get the dangle of it!

  2. Thanks foг sharing your thoughts about free legitimate online work at
    home jobs. Regards
