Video is a must...although it is becoming more common, it is still value that separates you from the amateurs

Ah, no, everyone is not using video. Learn to edit and don't try to float or gallop through a property. The local flavor video pieces help those new to the area decide to pick a property from your listings. Those using video should leave their channel link so others can see the many ways to harness this powerful platform Nick Calabro! Will hunt yours down. Post the link.

ALL agents? NO WAY!!! For us? Yes, yes, and yes, we use videoall the time. Video is very effective in real estate. But the stats are still super low for using video in marketing. 97% of the agents do NOT put their listing videos on YouTube. Unbelievable. IT can stay that way for all I care, since it is a great way to get a listing.. by being the only one putting the listing on YT:)

Not everybody. Those who do are comitted to investing time, thought, planning and resources. The cost of creating good video is within eveyones reach. The effort, however, often exceeds their willingness.

Video is not my thing.  I have used it in the past for virtual tours/walkthroughs, but I've moved away from it.  I'm going with the "less is more" approach beause they really need to get into the house to fall in love with it.  Photos/videos can only take you so far.

I think the clients enjoy a digital experience. Is there an increase of video use in our field? YES! I think it can really help increase the chance of a sale. You can essentially tour a home without even stepping in the door!
