Canmore Real Estate market is picking up and more listings are coming on the market. Richard Greaves is one of the local Realtors that are taking advantage of my video capabilities and getting me to produce short form Real Estate videos. One of his clients Wade Graham of Higher Ground Real Estate Investments had Richard film one of his properties for sale, realizing the potential of video to sell his properties. These videos are a maximum of 2 minutes in length giving the potential buyer a quick view of the property. The client can then decide to vie more pictures or make an appointment to actually view the house. The video gives the viewer a better sense of the house.
Now you ask about voice over, layouts, some one on camera which can all be done, but the time and cost may be prohibitive to some realtors where others selling a high end home over 1.5 million may consider doing more of the finer details.
The main point here is that Realtors will have more views do to having video than not. End of story. So decide if this is important to you in the world wave of video online and that You Tube is the second largest search engine after Google and your thoughts may change. Print is expensive and if your going to do it, just direct them to your website, no need to waste it in print. You want to get them to your website and browse your listings , not just take a peak at the pics in the print ad.
Clare McArdle another local realtor also decided to do a video for one of her listings that happened to be rented quite frequently in a vacation condo rental pool. She now can show potential clients the condo without having to figure out if it’s available for a showing, tough to do on weekends when rented out.
Here are some video produced.
