How to Make Real Estate Infographics
All of this may all sound great, but you may be wondering:
- What would I even make my infographics about?
- Where can I make infographics for free?
- How much time will it take?
- And, how can I get leads from infographics?
We put together a real estate agent’s guide for using infographics, that answers all of these questions and more:
1. Pick a Topic
There are two ways to choose a topic:
- Use free tools to choose a topic specific to your market.
- Look at real estate infographics that others have created.
Both options are covered, below.
Use Free Tools to Choose a Topic for Your Market
Here is an example using Google Correlate
Google Correlate is a free tool that shows what related searches people are performing online. For instance, if I look up the keyword, “how to remove a popcorn ceiling” there is a high likelihood that I will also Google terms like “how much does it cost to remove popcorn ceilings” or “Home Depot near me”.
Google Correlate identifies these overlapping/related search terms that people are looking up. The keywords are correlated.
Now, if my market is Denver, I can look at keywords like “houses for sale Denver” (see image above) and at what other searches leads are performing. It looks like people shopping for homes in Denver are also looking to get the best credit score possible for their home loans.
I could make an infographic about ways to improve your credit score for a Denver home loan or I could make an infographic with a list of top loan providers in the Denver area.
Look at Other Real Estate Infographics for Inspiration
Or, if you are pressed for time, another great option is to look at real estate infographics other real estate pros have created. Choosing a similar topic like one of the examples below is a great way to get started. Here are 25 great real estate infographic examples:

2. Gather Stats and Info
After you choose your topic it’s time to gather stats and info, online. A simple Google search is usually all that it takes. Credible sources like the NAR are full of useful data.
3. Pick a Free Tool to Create Infographics
Choose a great, free tool to create real estate infographics in minutes. Some choices include:
4. Add Your Brand & CTA
Make sure to upload your logo/branding to the infographic maker and brand every infographic you make. Including a call-to-action for leads to visit your website or email you is equally important.
5. Share and Boost
Share over social media and on your website. Boost visibility using social media marketing if desired.
It really is free and simple. Infographics are great for real estate agents because of their viral sharing capabilities, their ability to get leads’ attention, their SEO boosting capabilities, and their free and fast creation time.
Capture Leads that Real Estate Infographics Attract
Unleashing the power of infographics is free and easy. Real estate infographics are great for boosting SEO, too. But, it won’t make any difference if an agent doesn’t capture the information of the leads that infographics attract.
That’s where integrated IDX comes in. It’s the perfect partner for infographics. It captures the contact information of leads visiting an agent’s website. Fully integrated IDX also turns those leads into loyal website visitors. This is accomplished by sending leads back to the website over and over again with tailored listing alerts.
