Maine Real Estate For Sale !


You Tube Real Estate Video Blog Posts, Get More Cozy, Social To Engage Larger Audience.

You know there are 750 million members of Facebook and having your Maine real estate listings in front of all those eyeballs is important.

So social blogging the property listings, the local community Maine events is a shoe in with the you tube video posts that aggregate feed wherever you point the media stream.

Missy Caulk, one of our esteemed Active Rain and other platform colleagues had shared a little frustration, concern with me recently.

Stating one of her first videos, real 30 frames or higher per second with sound productions took over four hours to complete. And further reacted with a something has to change to be able to incorporate, weave more real videos in to the marketing of her local Michigan properties, local events.

The productions get easier as the learning curve planes out, levels, settles down. Just like when you pinned on the first blue and gold "R" and strapped on the utility belt as a real estate agent, broker with the same maine association of realtors meetinghard working alphabet letter on the belt buckle.

As the routine develops, the skills increase and you find a rhythm to make real estate production conveyor belt spin faster, more efficiently.

The skill sets develop in editing the mental story board going in also shape the way you shoot the loops coming out.

Before you close the door in the editing room and start cutting, working on transitions and audio of what stays, gets rendered, uploaded to all your video platforms in the final print.

Knowing care in what you collect in the field, at the property or local event  in this part of the production correlates directly to the rest of the video dog and pony whenever you make the camera red light blink.

Today I read an Active Rain blog post on the need for real video to be used in the branding of the agent, broker, REALTOR.

I agree but caution that a little less helping of the agent, broker, REALTOR and more focus of the video, the natural "sound" of the property listings.

The communities the sticks and bricks are in are as important as the local events that happen there on a regular basis. The hit record and talking on and on in continuous real estate agent, broker filling the entire screen, hanging out of a car or driving in eight lanes of rush hour traffic is like death by powerpoint most of us have suffered along the way during REALTOR meetings, workshops.

Same warning, ten cent dime advice about thinking you are going to shoot the entire property video continuous loop from the drive in the yard to the last room on the second floor in one gallop. Short and sweet is the best advice in most endeavors involving the fast paced world of listing, marketing, selling real estate. No matter where you are on the planet.

Hi Andy,

Videos are so important in our business.  More and more Realtors are switching over to this venue.  I have been  watching your videos and checking out your You Tube channel in order to learn from the best.

Cindy... you are so kind. Have to get off agent, broker branding and put the buyer, his needs, delivery of his experience first.

Hi Andy I am new to video and still going through the slow frustrating learn curve.  It seems to take me far too long to do a video but I am determined to streamline the process and become competent.  It really helps to read other agents comments here on active rain and look at their videos.

Sherri .. Videos deliver better than some of the time spent in old ways of dog and pony real estate. There is automation in the time consuming where do you plant the finished product for distribution too. The simple video is quick, easy but you need more of them under your belt. Email me with problems, curves you need straightening out. Glad to help out!

I just picked up a Sony Bloggie. I have not used it yet but it appears to be really simple and you can upload to Twitter and Facebook and other social media with a click of the button. Sony usually puts out a good product so I will be anxious to use it.  I have a new photographer that is using video and we are now going to begin doing this for all my listings. I think that it gives the home and photos more emotion and gets the buyer more involved. I also just did one with a voice over during a slide show. This turned out great and you can see it on either Saintaugblog or my website at and look for 150 Pelican Reef Drive.  By the way, I have never been to Maine but you make it look very appealing! Great job!

Diane ... post the link! A picture is static, one blink, eyefull. Like a moth collected, pinned to the science project board. It was a live once, but deader than a door nail now. Video adds motion, life with sound suddenly making the viewer "feel" like they are at the property listing, in the community. They are.
