Pinterest ... It’s Not Just for Recipes Anymore!

Lately the buzz about “social networking” has reached an all-time high.  Hours are spent in front of computers on Facebook… MySpace… LinkedIn… Foursquare… Google+… Instagram… Twitter… to name just a few.  Figuring them all out can be quite overwhelming!  The good news is, if given the right guidance- using some social networking sites can be a fabulous tool for homebuyers and McMillin has jumped on the bandwagon and is using the social media site Pinterest in amazing ways to give their customers a unique home buying experience.

McMillin Homes San Antonio has been keeping homeowners and the San Antonio community involved in their company through our Facebook page for a while now.  It’s proven to be a great way to communicate news, share the excitement of new homeowners and even pass along design tips.  And that is right where Pinterest comes in!

Started in 2009, and reaching the “Top 10 Largest Social Networking Sites” by 2011, Pinterest is a cork-board style photo sharing website that allows users to collect and share theme based collections.  What seemed to start with mostly moms collecting recipes and craft ideas has recently become part of businesses all over and is a great tool for home buyers in San Antonio.

When visiting the McMillin Homes San Antonio website and looking through the floor plans in some of our neighborhoods such as Venado Creek or The Ridge at Lookout Canyon, visitors will notice an option next to the floor plan offering a chance to take a “Virtual Tour” or to “View on Pinterest.”

If you have a Pinterest account you will then be taken directly to the McMillin Pinterest “board” for that floor plan and will be thrilled by what you find!  The Pinterest boards have been created by our model home decorator to give you all of the details of what you see in our model homes.  Everything from paint colors, to furniture layouts, to photos of each room can be found and “pinned” to your Pinterest boards to save for your own future design plans.

So you’re not a Pinterest user just yet?  We’ll, no better time than the present!  If you are thinking of buying a home or decorating the one you are in-Pinterest and the design ideas shared by McMillin homes designers are a great way to get the creative juices flowing!  Just click a “View on Pinterest” link on the McMillin San Antonio website and get started today!
