My First Real Estate Video

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty Group One Inc.

After watching the TBWS guys, Brian and Frank, for the past few months I've realized that my marketing efforts need a boost. With 1080hd flip camera, tripod, and lockbox key in hand I set out to make my first property video. Being from the internet/tech savvy generation, I felt this process would be quick and easy. Little did I know there is a whole lot more involved than hitting the record button. The aftermath is below.






In order to keep this post short I'll give a quick overview of the good and the bad.


  • Shaky camera work
  • Poor lighting and audio
  • Lack of wide angle lens
  • Amateur acting


  • The "record" button works


Though the video has its shortcomings it hasn't detracted from my plan to reach buyers and sellers in ways that can be engaging and entertaining. What experiences have you had making videos?

Ricky ~ The only advice I could give is to see if you can upload this to your own channel on YouTube and then embed the video in a public blog. You'll get more SEO from it. Good luck!

Thanks Chris. I tried to embed it through vimeo but it looks like it didn't work.

It's neat to see that video. I inspected that house. Not to many out there like this one.
