Yes, you read that right, porch wine. 🍷 We recently did a video tour with Jamie Tulak with eXp Realty LLC that we love! Greeting viewers on the porch was one of the fantastic ideas that we came up with to help showcase her beautiful listing located at 16 Sparkle Lane in Garner.
Why Virtual Tours?
As a real estate professional, you know how competitive the market is right now. To succeed, you'll have to differentiate yourself from others in the business. By using video, you are able to get more eyes on your seller's property. According to Realtor.com, real estate listings featuring virtual tours are clicked on 40% more often than those using still photos alone. More clicks mean more traffic to your site and more homes sold. Having more clicks to your website may also help you rank higher on search engines. Other benefits of including video in your listing are attracting out-of-town buyers, minimizing showings, and giving your listing better visibility on sites such as Zillow, Redfin, and Realtor.com.
We take virtual tours to the next level by shooting lifestyle videos. A lifestyle video not only shows you what a home looks like, but what it would be like to live in that home. We work with our real estate clients to help potential buyers mentally move into a property. When people watch our lifestyle videos, we want them to be able to imagine what life would be like if they lived in that home.
COVID-19 drastically changed the way people are buying homes. Realtor.com found that 31.1% of people in a study were willing to buy a home without seeing the property in person! Though things have opened back up, many people are still looking for houses this way and having a lifestyle video can really help showcase your homes.
How to Add a Video To Your Listings
So, you have decided to get a real estate video done, but what do you do with it? I get asked this all the time—I even added it to my FAQ page. 😉 Check out this link for exactly how to upload your video to the MLS. I knew a fellow REALTOR® would be able to explain it better than I could so I always tell people to follow those steps.
