While everyone continues to use the exact same services to advertise their properties, it is becoming increasingly difficult to be unique from everyone else. Unfortunately, it has even reached a point where people think that to sell properties online, you must only use these certain services. This is not only incorrect, but it is becoming less effective as newer technology becomes available. That being said, you will now learn about one of these new services that is rapidly getting the awareness of real estate experts from across the nation.
Currently, there is a new trend real estate experts have been testing with mixed results. They are making video tours of their properties and posting them on video sharing sites. You may have even seen or read in the news about real estate professionals doing such things, but even these innovators haven’t found the right place to post their video tours.
With traditional video-sharing sites like YouTube, all of the videos you upload are delivered to an extremely broad audience focused on entertainment. When it comes to posting video tours to help sell real estate on such sites, this can not only provide you with no leads, but it can even have a negative impact on your marketing. The reason being is because people can do 2 things to hurt your reputation: (1) give your video the lowest rating possible and (2) post negative comments about the home and/or video tour. No matter which one they choose, they will end up hurting your reputation to acquire qualified leads.
One thing to realize is this: on these kinds of video-sharing sites, all members have the same privileges. No matter if they are 7 years old or 50 years old, their comments and ratings have the same impact as everyone else’s.
Luckily, there is a real estate video web site that eliminates these risks and is designed to acquire buyers. It’s called RealeFlix, and it is a video service intended to only be used for buying and selling property. They help sellers by giving them free video tutorials and various tools to get starting with creating professional video tours. They also help buyers by giving them a number of features and tools to provide them a full perspective of your property.
The great thing about posting your video tours on RealeFlix is you know that the people viewing your video tour are interested in buying and not just looking to entertain themselves. This in addition to the fact of gas prices constantly going up signifies that buyers are interested in new ways to see real estate without having to commute everywhere. So, while everyone else is still using photos, you can be way ahead of them by not only creating video tours, but also know where to post them to get quality leads.
