Fall Real Estate Marketing Ideas (and Templates)

By Lauren Vaccaro Last Updated October 10, 2023 3 min read

Your fall planning might include showings, lead follow-up, and open houses. While this is all part of the job, don’t overlook your fall marketing plan. To help get you through another cool season, we’ve collected some of the best real estate fall marketing ideas and gathered a selection of fall social media templates to help you thrive.

1. “Boo” your clients 

This October, booing your friends is trending on social media. Join the fun and leave a small gift or sweet treat for your clients with a little surprise note thanking them for their business. Encourage them to spread the Halloween spirit by booing their neighbors. You may even get some referrals

2. Give seasonal staging tips 

A home staged for the fall season

Candles, pumpkins, and blankets, oh my! Using fall décor when staging a home can emphasize coziness and hominess. Share a few inviting fall staging tips on your Instagram Stories or Reels. Up the engagement by asking your audience to share their favorite part of decorating for fall. 

Fun idea—create a Reel showing how to make a fall-inspired stovetop potpourri with cinnamon, citrus, and apples. Scent is such a vital part of creating a cozy, staged home. 

3. Ask your audience what scares them away from buying and selling 

Don’t shy away from what everyone is talking about—interest rates and the market are scary right now. Use your Instagram question feature or create a post on any social platform asking what is scaring people away from buying or selling right now. It’s a great way to answer questions and show expertise in your area’s market. 

4. Join a trunk-or-treat

Many communities offer trick-or-treating events such as trunk-or-treat. Sign up to pass out candy and set up a marketing station with a sign and business cards. It’s a great way to get involved and show your face in the community. 

5. Give the spooky scoop 

Real estate agents are local experts. Create a post sharing the fall happenings around your town. Visit your local government’s event calendar for ideas, or check out HOAs and local businesses. Great things to include are pumpkin patches, fall festivals, concerts, costume contests, and trick-or-treating events. 

6. Do a fall giveaway 

Giveaways are a great way to gain followers and increase engagement on social media! The prize can be big or small, but try sticking to a fall theme, such as tickets to a local pumpkin patch, a gift card for fall home décor shopping, football tickets, a cozy mug with a bag of apple cider, etc. Here is an example of what to post:
