Why Real Estate Video Is Less Expensive Than You Think.... - 09/29/07 05:53 PM
I was recently at the South Florida REALTOR Profitability Conference and the Luncheon speaker asked an interesting question: "How many of the REALTORS here have run a newspaper ad that no one replied to?" I was genuinely surprised by the number of hands that went up. Now lets look at real estate video.

Progress Report: Performance For The Critical First Fourteen Days Of A Video Listing - 09/09/07 04:25 PM
The first 14 days of any listing of any listing are critical with the second 16 days running close behind. Here is the 14 day performance for an video of Los Bosques (a recent development project in Panama): First 14 day total: 541 video views 24 day total: 975 video views (as of this writing - still 6 days to go) Only consistent performance around the hard numbers of property videos will improve the the odds for getting what sellers want: sales.
