Market Your Listings with Video Walk-Throughs
Professional photos are always a great way for real estate agents to market their listings. However, Video Walk-Throughs are becoming increasingly popular for agents to use, especially for larger homes. Videos allow viewers to get a better visual of the size of the rooms, as well as the layout of the home.
Real Estate Agencies now Requiring Videos
A number of real estate agencies are even requiring their agents to include a video with their listings. It is important to be on the forefront for new marketing tools when it comes to real estate, especially if you are located in a competitive housing market. Having to pay for photos as well as a video may seem like a pain now, but if it helps sell your listings quicker and closer to the original asking price, it will be well worth it. Also note that many companies may offer a bundle discount if you purchase both a photography and video package from them.
Zillow Now Offering Video Walk-through App
If you are an agent that has listings that include smaller homes and may not be worth hiring a professional videographer for, Zillow now allows agents to add videos to their listings when they use the Premier Agent Smartphone App. And the best part? It is completely free to use! The app helps guide agents through making the video and puts listings with these videos at the top of search results. Although the quality will not be as good as a professional, it is still a great marketing tool to start with.
