Real Estate Video Helps You Save Time and Money.
Video tours save buyers and sellers countless hours in preview appointments and open houses. True video tours provide life-like video walk-throughs of your real estate properties, allowing buyers to get a real sense of the property's scale and flow. By offering video tours of your listings, you give your clients a means of previewing your listings before they take the next step of scheduling an appointment - saving everyone countless hours in the decision making process. In truth, buyers who view video tours often take up to three times less the amount of time when making a purchase decision!
Using Video Helps You Rise Above the Competition Online.
As we all know, inventories are amassing, prices are coming down, there are fewer buyers, and your competition is working hard to move their listings. The question is - how are you working to stand apart from the competition? Using video is a powerful way for you to differentiate yourself from other agents online, and can even help you to secure more listings. Telling a prospective client that you will have a video tour of their home produced and marketed online is a really good incentive for them to list with you, and an even better reason for them to come back!
