Share this article:

Just like the weather, the spring market is starting to heat up, which means you’re getting extra busy. With that in mind, I’ve collected five trending Reels that are ridiculously easy to make for your listings.

The modern slideshow

If you want to create a Reel with only images, using this type of template is the way to do it. This kind of Reel is fast-paced, giving people a glimpse of the aesthetically pleasing images of your listing. Chances are they’ll stick around to watch it a second time and follow your CTA (call-to-action) to learn more about the listing.

What you’ll need: 16 pictures of the listing you’d like to feature.

How to make it

Step 1: Tap here to view the Reel on Instagram.

Step 2: Tap the “use template” button at the bottom left of your screen.

Step 3: Input your 16 pictures in the order you prefer.

Step 4: Tap “next”’ and add text to the centre of your video if desired. If so, keep it simple. Let the home speak for itself.

Step 5: Tap “next”, then input your caption — keep it short and sweet with a clear CTA.

Step 6: Select “edit cover” to either add your own cover or select a moment in the video you’d like to use as the cover image.

Step 7: Scroll down and tag your location so the algorithm shows your content to people interacting with content in the same area.

Step 8: Hit “share”.

Spring soundtrack

You can create multiple versions of this Reel! Select a room in your listing, ensure your camera is steady and pan from one side to another slowly. You can also set up your phone on a tripod and film a single area of the home — just make sure there’s movement!

For example, curtains billowing in the breeze, or maybe you move into the frame and either pour a cup of coffee or simply place a cup on a table.

What you’ll need: A single video lasting up to 9 seconds.

Make a cup of coffee

This is a great trending sound to show off a kitchen. Similar to the last Reel, you can set up your phone so it films a certain area with a bit of movement. Pour a cup of coffee, or maybe the coffee is already made and you’re adding cream. Simply set the scene in an aesthetically pleasing way and create a short clip.

What you’ll need: A single video that lasts up to 10 seconds. Since this is a still video, I’d recommend keeping it closer to 5-6 seconds long.

How to make it

Step 1: Tap here to view the Reel on Instagram.

Step 2: Tap the trending sound, then “use audio” to get started.

Step 3: Either leave the video without text, like this one, or add simple text in the centre of your video. You can do something like, “Pour a cup in your dream home”, or “Just listed in your area”.

Step 4: Tap “next”, then input your caption — keep it short and sweet with a clear CTA.

Step 5: Select “edit cover” to either add your own cover or select a moment in the video you’d like to use as the cover image.

Step 6: Scroll down and tag your location so the algorithm shows your content to people interacting with content in the same area.

Step 7: Hit “share”.

Step 5: Tap “next”, then input your caption — keep it short and sweet with a clear CTA inviting people to learn more about the listing or to book a private showing.

Step 6: Select “edit cover” to either add your own cover or select a moment in the video you’d like to use as the cover image.
