Real estate walk-through videos

Selling a house, whether privately or through a realtor, is always very competitive. Every realtor and Facebook page has images, so how do you make your listing stand out? With video!

Think about it, for the past 3 years you’ve been hearing that “video is king” when it comes to digital content. So why have you not made the move yet? Your competition is doing it!

What else does video show that pictures just can’t accomplish? Relativity! With our full walk-through videos, your audience is able to tell where each room is in relationship to the other rooms in the house. This pretty much gives the viewer a detailed layout of the home which could also mean less in-person showings on your part, leaving you with more time to do more important things. What’s even better is that for the most part the videos are about 2-3 minutes long, depending on the square footage of the property and specific details that are highlighted. This means your customer doesn’t have to spend 10 minutes watching a lengthy video, instead they are virtually guided in an informational but swift manner.

Once we arrive on site, again depending on property size, it usually takes 45 minutes to an hour to complete the video. Our walk-through videos have a typical turnaround time of about a week. So ask yourself, would you rather invest spending an hour with us so you can share that same video with 20 clients, or would you spend an hour 20 times with each individual client for the showings? Time is money and if you’re spending 20 hours just hanging around the same empty house, that’s 20 hours that you’re not using to scout other locations (or soaking up the sun).

Let us help you do some simple math… take our quoted price (usually $220) and divide it by the amount of clients you show each house to (let’s say an average of 20). So 220 ÷ 20 = 11…. would you work for $11/hr ? That’s almost minimum wage!

Hey, your choice, we’re just here to help.

Shooting real estate with a drone

Sure, you can post your phone pictures on your Facebook page or realtor website of the house you’re selling, but so is everyone else. Question is, how do you make your listing stand out? By taking it to the next level, literally.

Let’s be honest here, if you’re not utilizing aerial photography and videos for your listing, you’re behind the competition. Drones are the new ‘it’ and they can do wonders for your listing. Utilizing aerial photography for real estate property can have a few advantages over just ground-level pictures.

First of all, show how big that property really is! This is amazing if the property has beautiful landscaping or sits on acres of land.
Second, show off that amazing roof, there is no other way to for the buyer to really see the condition of the roof other than being up there themselves. Drones solve this problem.
Third but not least, show off that size. When a buyer is standing in front of the house, they just see a flat wall that features windows and doors. Aerial images show how much space the house truly takes up. Ranch houses cover area while multi-level houses show mass.
