Reddit is the ultimate home of funny memes and many weird family stories that should probably never be shared anywhere, even on the internet. But, Reddit is also home to many other things, such as investment advice and plenty of analysis on the next crypto that'll 100x.
But what if you're into real estate investing or a property manager looking for the next hot spot to snap up some land. The bad news is that there aren't many Reddit pages for you, but the ones that exist are pretty popular.
It's important to get your information from a few sources. You should consider what you call "Reddit real estate investing," which is using unconventional sources to get advice or investing tips. The pages listed below aren't exactly wallstreetbets, but they're as good as you'll get for real estate investing.
First up on the list is r/realestateinvesting, with over 1.3 million members; on this forum, you'll see users needing advice on joining the real estate investor space, asking for help managing their portfolio, and where to get loans for buying up more property.
This forum covers everything an investor in real estate would need to know. The good thing is that it's not hard to get some engagement on your posts when looking for an answer; the users of this forum are quite friendly and help each other out.

This Reddit forum has far fewer users but is still a useful source when trying to manage multiple properties and analyze investment opportunities. The page sits at 20k users at the time of writing and is a useful source for finding tools to help an investor make sense of the market.
Technology is a huge part of our world, and it would be silly not to utilize it in every way possible, especially with so much data out there; it'll aggregate it and allow you to make sense of the world around you for you to make a better and more informed investment decision within the Proptech space.

A far more popular forum than the above, r/realestate currently has 322k followers at the time of writing and is certainly one of the most popular real estate investment Reddit pages. Fairly similar to the first forum on our list, but this forum seems as though it has slightly better and more consistent engagement from its community.
A common theme on this page is that people like to chat about market predictions, tips, and tricks on how to complete renovations faster, and there are a lot more conversations about general DIY and how to increase the value of your family home.

The final choice on our list. A very different one at that. Reddit, for us, can be quite boring considering there aren't any digital real estate forums, and so we thought, why not create one? And, so we did just that. It's incredibly new, and we're looking to build it out over the next few months.
Do you know of any cool metaverse projects? What's your favorite digital real estate platform? Or have you recently just spotted a great opportunity within the digital real estate ecosystem? This forum is a place where you can share your thoughts and predictions for the market, and it doesn't even need to involve Parcl; this is simply a safe space to share ideas and thoughts.
We'd love for you to start building it out for us. If you're reading this article right now, let's start it off by commenting on our first post. We'll definitely reply! And yes, it does have an extra 'e' at the end because someone else owns the r/digitalrealestate name, which is pretty inactive.
