If a real estate video or virtual home tour is the next best thing to an in-person showing of a home, what’s the best way for a real estate agent to make that viewing experience one that will encourage a potential buyer to take the next step? Photo galleries and video tours have made it easier for buyers (especially out-of-town ones) to peruse a high volume of homes and properties in a short period of time.  But it’s also made it that much tougher for Realtors to get an audience with their potential customers – to say nothing of the time buyers exhaust trying to wade through the good, bad, and ugly of homes for sale on the Internet.

Bill Koepnick is an EMMY-awarding winning sound editor from Los Angeles who retired to the Upstate six years ago and now produces high-quality real estate videos. He is able to offer unique insight into this creative and highly technical process.

We are moving towards more and more digital marketing. Home buyers today have the ability to view homes online and quickly weed out what they want to see versus what can be discarded. Buyers can walk through virtual tours, view videos, see detailed photos.
