If you’re a Realtor looking for high-quality real estate social media templates, you have your work cut out for you. There are hundreds of thousands of templates online today, and choosing which ones will work for your brand on social media isn’t easy.

I’ve included templates for Facebook posts, Instagram posts, Instagram Stories, Instagram Reels, and Instagram Highlights Covers. I’ll also share the best places to get real estate templates and explain why we prefer paying for high-quality ones instead of using the many free options available.

BONUS: How to Get 10x More Leads From Social Media (Without Relying on Luck)

Even if you have thousands of followers, generating leads on social media often comes down to just plain luck. Think about it. Let’s say you create a Reel that goes viral and reaches 5,000 people. You might get a few hundred likes and comments, but getting leads from people who don’t already know, like, and trust you is rare.

Are Paid Social Media Templates Worth the Money?

Where to Get The Best Templates Free vs Paid

If you’ve made it this far, you’re probably wondering why I didn’t include any of the thousands of free templates on Canva in this article. Why am I telling agents to spend $50+ per month instead of $9.99 for a Canva Pro account? 

The quality of the free and even Pro templates on Canva doesn’t compare to the companies creating templates specifically for agents. The layouts don’t look as professional and the copy is generic and not written by agents. Sure, they might work in a pinch, but are you trying to build a lasting career or save fifty bucks a month?

The ROI for Paid Social Media Templates

If you’re trying to build a career selling houses and think social media is the right way to do it, then high-quality templates are no longer optional. Not when you’re competing with agents who buy high-quality templates. 

That’s not to say you need to sign up for a service to achieve this, especially if you’re just starting out in the business. You can buy template packs on Etsy for $10 that are light-years better than anything on Canva. It’s oodles of return on investment (ROI) for a pretty minimal price.

Better Design

The most compelling reason to always use paid templates is that the design quality is head and shoulders above free options. If you don’t believe me, look for just listed templates on Canva and then compare them to the templates in this article. 

Better Copy

The second reason why paid templates have such good ROI is that they offer much more than just pretty designs. Paid template companies like Coffee & Contracts and LabCoat Agents include snappy copy written by top-producing agents. Coffee & Contracts and Agent Crate even offer scripts for Reels. Instead of spending hours writing scripts, you can jump right in and start recording thumb-stopping content. A huge time-saver! 

Wider Selection

Finally, the companies that sell templates also offer templates for print materials like business cards, flyers, postcards, open house signage, one-sheets, and much more, making your branding more cohesive. Many even have fully written blog posts, comparative market analysis templates, and buyer’s guides.

1. Coffee & Contracts

Coffee & Contracts Logo

Pricing: $54 per month ($45 per month paid yearly)
Contract required? No
Best for: Design and copy quality
Drawbacks: You still need Canva to edit their templates

Coffee & Contracts templates offer the perfect blend of engaging copy and beautiful graphic design. Their templates not only look trendy and professional (not easy!), but their copy is snappy and highly engaging. You can tell it was written by a Realtor who really understands how to hook people on social media.  

The only drawback is that Coffee & Contracts doesn’t have an in-app editor. You’ll need a free Canva account to edit their templates. That said, I think of this as a feature, not a bug. Instead of trying to reinvent the wheel, the Coffee & Contracts team spent their time and money on top-shelf graphic designers and writers. Money well spent in my opinion. You can get started with $15 off your first month with the promo code THECLOSE.

2. LabCoat Agents Marketing Center

Pricing: $59 per month
Contract required? No
Best for: Teams and brokerages
Drawbacks: Designs are generally more masculine

LCA Marketing Center also offers beautifully designed templates with engaging copy. But in addition, they offer a wide variety of templates for teams and brokerages that you won’t get from Coffee & Contracts or Agent Crate. As a leader, you can’t go wrong with LCA Marketing Center. 

So what’s the catch? Well, their aesthetic is a bit more masculine than Coffee & Contracts, which might not work for you if your personal brand is more pastels and Pinterest.

3. Agent Crate

Agent Crate logo

Pricing: $29 per month
Contract required? No
Best for: Affordability and variety
Drawbacks: Graphic design is not quite as nice as Coffee & Contracts and LCA Marketing Center

Agent Crate is a popular template platform that offers agents pretty much all the marketing materials they need. Starting at just $29 per month, it’s also the most affordable premium template service we reviewed. If you want to save some money, Agent Crate should be your first choice. 

There are a few drawbacks though. The first issue is the design and copy quality. While they recently underwent a fairly major design overhaul, I still think Coffee & Contracts templates look more polished and trendy. Second, if you want to get their new Reels templates and scripts, you’ll need to upgrade to their $39 per month premium plan. That’s only $6 less than Coffee & Contracts if you pay the whole year upfront.

4. Etsy

Etsy logo

Pricing: $2.99+
Contract required? No
Best for: Affordability and variety
Drawbacks: Lower design and copy quality

If you don’t want to sign up for a monthly subscription, then Etsy is a great place to buy real estate social media templates. Many sellers on Etsy offer packages that include a hundred or more templates for a one-time price—often less than $20. 

However, while Etsy’s designs are slightly nicer than Canva, they’re not quite on the same level as Coffee & Contracts or LCA Marketing Center. The copy is also nowhere near as good. This makes perfect sense when you consider it was probably written by graphic designers who’ve never worked in real estate. You get pretty designs and that’s about it.
