Real estate podcasts are a great way for people to keep up with what’s going on in the real estate market. Obviously, this is a big deal for investors, especially those who own investment properties in multiple parts of the country.
However, national real estate trends have a direct impact on the local market, which makes being informed a big deal for people who are trying to buy a home or sell their house. It’s also important for real estate agents to keep up with what’s going on in the industry. No matter which of those headings you fall under, real estate podcasts are a great way to get expert insight into what’s going on in the real estate market.Read More »
The BiggerPockets Podcast, which drops a new episode at least once a week, has been a hit among real estate investors and agents since 2013, making it one of the longest-tenured podcasts available online. Hosts, David Greene and Brandon Turner are successful real estate investors in their own rights, and each show sees them bring on another successful investor to find out about their own successful strategies, as well as what hasn’t worked.
That’s one of the things that really sets this pod apart from some others that are out there. The people on BiggerPockets Podcast don’t care to share stories of deals that didn’t work out. This gives listeners the chance to learn from their errors. If you’re considering getting into real estate investing of any kind, you definitely need to subscribe to this pod.

While it’s tailored towards investors, Think Realty Radio also provides some very useful information for real estate agents, or people who are considering taking a “For Sale By Owner” approach to selling their own home. This is primarily because strategic marketing is a frequently discussed topic on this pod. Host, Abhi Golhar is one of the most entertaining podcast hosts within the real estate industry, so even the “mundane” topics come across as energetic and entertaining. Just like the BiggerPockets Podcast, there’s one new episode a week, so even if you’re too busy to sit down for multiple shows a week, you can keep up to date with the latest goings-on in the real estate industry.
Our Favorite Episode: Evolving in the Economy
The RealWealth Network is one of the fastest-growing online communities for real estate agents and investors in the world. One of the most appealing features of their network is the fact that you can join for free. But we’re not discussing their platform, just their pod. Fortunately, The RealWealth Show is one of the best podcasts for market information, investment trends, and other pieces of information on the web.
Host, Kathy Fettke is one of the most successful real estate investors in the world, so her presence on the show automatically gives it a great deal of authority. That authority is only strengthened by the fact that The RealWealth Show was one of the first podcasts ever uploaded to iTunes. That doesn’t just include real estate podcasts. This was literally one of the first podcasts ever made. There are hundreds of episodes on there, so it’s easy to spend an entire day listening to various episodes that cover a wide array of topics.
Our Favorite Episode: Tips on Having the Right Property Insurance
Note: Even if you’re not remotely interested in big-time real estate investing, this episode has some great content about how to insure vacation homes or other secondary properties.
While it’s a podcast today, The Real Estate Guys Radio Show started all the way back in 1997. That’s right, this show started before people could pull out a phone and subscribe to a podcast! Celebrating their 25th year in production, hosts Russel Gray and Robert Helms bring a unique blend to the show.
Robert is a successful real estate investor and Russel is a highly regarded financial strategist. This blend makes this show one of the most informative options out there. With a new episode every week, you can be sure that you’re up to date on everything going on in the world of real estate, but primarily in investing.
Our Favorite Episode: Getting Started in Commercial Real Estate Investing
Most of the podcasts that we’ve already discussed focus heavily on the world of investing, but the rest of our list is going to focus primarily on people who are trying to sell a home or are looking to make a purchase. How to Buy a Home is one of the newest real estate podcasts on the market, but it’s already positioned itself as one of the best.
If you’ve never bought a home before, the information on this podcast is incredibly valuable. Host, David Sidoni goes through different steps of the process in great detail, helping you make sure that you’ve got everything in order to make the biggest purchase of your life. One reviewer said that Sidoni hosts this podcast like the “boomer dad that you didn’t know you needed.” While funny, that take is pretty accurate, as David presents the information that homebuyers need in a laymen’s terms, so even the newest of homebuyers can understand.

Unlike some of the other podcasts on our list, The Home Stretch is a limited series of six episodes. However, the information contained within these six episodes is second-to-none. Whether you’re considering buying your first home, or you’ve bought a home in the past, but you have some regrets about certain parts of the transaction, these six episodes are perfect for you.
The amount of detail that was put into this podcast is absolutely incredible. The show starts with getting your finances in order before you start shopping and wraps up with tips for decorating the inside of your new home. When we say that they cover everything, we mean it.
Our Favorite Episode: All of them! Seriously, there’s only six episodes, and most of them run between 30 and 60 minutes. If you’re considering buying a home, you should invest a few hours into listening to every episode of this show.
With two new episodes every week (they usually drop on Mondays and Thursdays), The Money Pit Podcast is one of the best options out there for homeowners who are considering listing their home. Hosted by Leslie Segrete and Tom Kraeutler, this show talks a lot about things you need to do to make your home more appealing to buyers.
While it’s listed as a “home improvement podcast,” the hosts do spend quite a bit of time talking about how certain upgrades can make your home more appealing when you’re ready to put a For Sale sign in the front yard. There are also some organizational tips on some episodes that may completely change the way you store items in your home.
