If a picture is worth 1000 words, how many is a video worth?

A little while back I wrote a post on the The Importance of Good Pictures When Marketing Your College Station Home, while this is still absolutely vital to the success of your sale, we are in the midst of the YouTube age and it’s role can not be ignored in marketing your home for sale.

Just like a good movie can bring you into that world, a good video walkthrough can bring you right into a home.  Not only does it give potential buyers a fairly true look at the layout of your home, but it allows them to catch details that might not be the center of attention in a photo.  When you give buyers a 180° look (or even a 360° look if space allows) in full video you are able to pique their interest and create a longer lasting impact on them.  Let’s look at it this way, a buyer finds 2 different homes in the same neighborhood, similar square footage, similar amenities, & a similar look.  Which home will they remember if one has a video walkthrough and the other doesn’t?  The one with the video, because it sets it apart from the competition.

Below is a great example of how a video walkthrough can transport you right into the home:

This marketing tool is utilized in ALL of my listings.  I mentioned in my post on photos that in this clogged real estate market, you have to set yourself apart.  I can not repeat this enough.  You have to set yourself apart.  Video is a great technique of doing just that.

Video is only one of the many ways I can help you sell your home faster, to find out more please feel free to give me a call @ 979.255.1839
