Blogging usually attracts more buyers. Sellers tend to look at other agents selling in the neighborhood and their past agent and referrals from friends.

I blog for both, to get my name out there and for points, like Sam said.

 

Sellers usually turn into buyers once their house sells and buyers may turn into sellers if they have a place to sell.  Back 20 some years ago in the first CA drought, we used to have signs on restaurant tables that said "When does 1 = 3?" referencing the water used to wash a glass of water and justifying them not serving it unless asked for (a practice which sadly never died off). 

 

I think of buyers and sellers in a similar phrase "When does 1 = 2?"  One client can turn into two transactions and refer you to other people or may need to sell the house they just bought eventually.  Both sides can be easy or difficult to work with, so I don't discriminate.  A client is a client.

I blog to impact & improve and maybe provoke my readers. Hopefully, I connect enough with some that will be future buyers, sellers, or even other Realtors with referrals, Blogging and writing is a passion, I'd do it whether I was a Realtor or not. Referrals are a great result of my blogging, but not what drives it. I have received business off blogs in the past, it was fun to meet and work with a reader of my content.

I do not, as I can't yet point to an actual buyer or seller coming to me as a result of my blogging. For me it's just part of my "brand marketing" and visibility in my community. As far as I'm concerned, either buyer or seller coming to me as a result of blogging is good.
