Real estate videos, only do those for your most expensive listings right? Where did that myth come from and nothing could be further from the best practices. Unless you hire out most of what you do as a real estate professional, real estate videos should be happening for all your property listings. The community events for the show and tell of what's it like where the real estate listings are location is pretty darn important too.Unless you only want to list and sell to local real estate buyers, videos put the community and what happens around the what's for sale today on the map.The outside your local market area real estate buyers can watch your video broadcast too if you have a strong, robust real estate video channel. So if real estate video is so helpful and what property buyers wa...

Real estate video, don't just use it on your most expensive listings. Only luxury properties deserve video, that is real estate myth #1. Where does that real estate video myth come from anyway? It's prevalent in circles of real estate agents and brokers who hired out the tasks. Someone reasoning that the bigger price tag properties makes the "do a video" necessary or a worthwhile expense.But what if you don't hire out everything from sign placement, image collecting, heck even real estate copy writing? When you live in a market where stagers are not hired for the make it look pretty for the date with the real estate buyer online wolf whistling at what he or she sees. In small rural real estate markets, the practical stuff is what is ooh la la. Low to the ground the ground price, new roo...

Real estate video myth number one. The thinking only luxury property listings deserve video treatment for the show and tell. Nothing could be further from the truth using real estate video for marketing what you list and need to sell. So where did that real estate video myth come from? Well, if you are used to hiring out most of your real estate photo, video, heck even property listing sign planting and retrieval. Then only your most expensive property listings can justify the expense of lights, camera, action to produce a real full motion property listing video. Or the myth that only your most expensive real estate listings deserve the video treatment could be that's the majority of what you see shot, edited, rendered and posted online. So why would someone hire out the video for a 196...
