The National Association of Realtors® reported that 84% of home buyers considered property photos and virtual tours to be important in their “Profile of Home Buyers & Sellers” report. That was in 2005.
Today more than ever, videos could be very beneficial to your online marketing. Many tech savvy Real Estate agents have embraced the latest video technology as an innovative and engaging vehicle for connecting with their target audience.
People are watching hundreds of videos a day on YouTube.com and uploading thousands by the hours. In fact, every minute, at least ten hours of video files are uploaded.
YouTube is the leader in online video hosting, and the premier destination to watch and share original videos worldwide. It allows people to easily upload and share video clips across the Internet through websites, mobile devices, blogs, and email.
Creating a quality video today is easy and inexpensive. All you really need is a video camera, or sometimes even just a regular digital camera with video capability, and some editing software. Microsoft’s Movie Maker is a free video editing tool. With this program, you can even add voice-overs and music. Another option is the inexpensive and extremely simple to use “The Flip” video recorder. It gives you 60 minutes to capture videos for your listing presentations, local neighborhood events and other personal clips.
An agent who has done a great job in putting virtual tours, photos and supporting documents to their featured and sold inventories online is two steps ahead of the game.
