Fooling yourself that a slide show with no audio or just some ivories, march band music as a sound bed is a bonafide real estate video.
You can take the same images that your busy buyer just eyeballed. Slice and dice anyway you want with Frankenstein, or "Pet Semetary" not quite normal, real motion added to simulate life.
But to really breathe air, cause delivery to the property listing, the local area for the real estate buyer, you have to create real full motion video.
Built with audio that adds, rounds out, completes the on line video experience.
Half the buyers in your audience have never been to your home town, the zip codes where you collect, market and sell real estate listings.So help them "beam" to your area, start the transmission and "energize" so they can on line materialize in your gps coordinates. For a few minutes so they feel like they have been all through the property, in your down town for local events because you shoot, edit, render, upload real live video with narrated conversation sound.
Think about it. You live four states away from a property listing you see on line. You study and make the most with what is presented which is pretty skimpy, limited. You have four images, not really stellar ones. But again, all you got, the bare bones reality, the matter fact of it all.
Add to it in your quest to make the largest purchase in your lifetime of real estate a multiple listing service (mls) print out with "yes, no, maybe" fields checked off. And other than a remarks space of two lines, the properties all sound a like and limited.
Do you think you are going to call the listing agent, broker and say "hey, nice same image slide show, works for me, I'll take it"?
It's good enough?
Where do you want me to wire the money and to whose escrow real estate trust account being his next question right?
The real estate buyer knows a little more than they did before about the property, nothing new about the area.Keeps looking, searching. Hungry, thirsty for some real meat and potatoes, not snacks. Wants to load up the empty shiny tin trail ride plate with the A-Z of the property listing, the area it is parked in.
Real estate video, real full motion at 30 to 60 frames per second is the way to get your property listing buyer in to the community. That takes him, her by the hand and pulls them through your down town, then one by one, through your real estate property listings. Not just inside, but outside, showing what your buyer to be is going to look at in all directions.
And with the real estate video audio reminding him of tons of information, property and area details.Like as you pan the back yard from the open deck and sliders to the kitchen, you spill the beans. Let the cat out of the bag about the new elementary school is only two blogs to the east. The golf course is a half mile down that quiet dead end street your home is fronting.
Real estate video is full motion, connecting the property puzzle pieces with helpful tour guide sound to add all the details, hit the fine points of what the listing, the local area it is in is all about. Don't do a slapped together slide show, don't waste the audio that is 40% of the video experience for your real estate buyer.
Don't be telling your real estate sellers when competing for a listing that oh sure, you do video when you have a slide show of the same images you made the buyer on line sit through and burn up time that is some kind of previous on his end.
It's like creating NASCAR real estate race track pit stops.That are crucial, critical but no one is running around the car with a gas can to connect the quick release nozzle. No air wrenches whirring and engaging the lug nuts for a much needed tire change. For the short on patience, nerves wearing thin, tired real estate buyer, on line traveler parked inside with his hands 10 and 2. Wanting, desperately needing to get up to speed with your help. Back on the track.
Maine, come sample some of ME, how about a lighthouse, taking in a ME state fair horse show, an early morning ME lake fishing adventure, or some swish swish, carving new powder on the ME snow ski slopes? Or interview with a local Maine farmer with a red addiction.
I'm in Maine, you ought to be too.
