How To Use Real Estate Video On Your Site

Real Estate Agent with Joe Manausa Real Estate 8508880888

I have several current projects that I would love to complete over the holiday season, but real estate video research moved into an entirely new category for this Tallahassee real estate broker. This is no longer a “how do we use it” project on my desk, rather it is a “how to we schedule and complete it” operation for our entire office.

Real Estate Video about Tallahassee Florida ImageFor our long-time readers of the Tallahassee Real Estate Blog (subscribed via email subscription), you might want to actually visit our blog on the web. We have updated the site and will record over five million (5M) page views in 2010. And apparently our visitors want to see more real estate videos.

Currently, we only have a few real estate video offerings on our site, but we are looking to expand our library. And we want to ask for your requests!

What kind of real estate videos would help make this a better site for people interested in buying, selling, or owning a home in Tallahassee, Florida?

Real Estate Video Real Estate Agent Parody ImageThe example on the right has been featured on the main page of the Tallahassee Real Estate Web Site for several weeks now, and it has had a few hundred visitors check it our there. But we also feature our Progressive Marketing Plan for selling a home on the internet, and even (as seen on the left) a parody of real estate agents everywhere.

But we want to know what you, our real estate customer and frequent web site visitor want to see. We have dabbled at creating videos of subdivisions in Tallahassee and we even have a real estate video showing a home being built right before your very eyes! It starts from a vacant lot, and minutes later it is a 5000 square foot brick house on a lake. This video has been viewed nearly 60,000 times!

Eagles RidgeThe real estate video on the right is a home tour of the Eagles Ridge Subdivision in Tallahassee. I assembled this in March of 2008 with the intent of creating similar real estate videos of all the neighborhoods in the Tallahassee housing market.

Unfortunately (the road to hell is paved with good intentions), it would just take too much time to assemble, upload, and maintain such a vast library of videos of the Tallahassee real estate market.

So, what kind of real estate videos would you like to see?

Joe: So much to do... so little time. But you are right, I see the value in video. Good project to work one. I'll let you know how it goes. Thanks for the push.

FIVE MILLION page views? That's fantastic.

Video is a tricky subject. Do you maintain the highest quality of video to promote your image and profissionalism?

Then you had better pick your subjects carefully and do 4 a year.

Do you want a volume of low key, folksy videos that people can relate to?

Then grab a flip video and you can film and upload a video every day (as I do)

My quality is terrible, but my frequency is amazing!

Its gotten so bad, that each time my two year old grandson is over, he wants to "watch videos" (of himself, of course!)

It is up to you...

I've seen a lot of creative uses for videos. Brad Andersohn's Real Tools for Realtors has some great ideas.
