Create A Listing Video in 5 Minutes Using This Free Software

By

In a previous article, I talked about how and why you should create listing videos using a $109.00 software program. Well now you can save your money. Just use the free easy to use software mentioned in this article and following the steps in my short tutorial and you'll be creating exeptional real estate videos in minutes...no camcorder needed.

Unless you've been hiding in a cave for the last couple of years, you'll know that online videos are a hot item. Just take a visit at Youtube or Google Videos for proof.

And for real estate agents, virtual tours and listing videos(although not new) are an effective way to market your listings and make your self stand out during listing appointments. But in order to create them, you usually need to pay an outside company, hire a videographer, or purchase expensive software.

Well that's all changed now.

With a free program from Microsoft called Photo Story 3, you can quickly create a great looking video from still photographs, and add text, narration, and background music. Once you see how easy this program is to use, you'll be creating all sorts of videos....even ones for your family.

To show you what this free program can do, check out my video tutorial

Here's some real estate video ideas.

1. Videos of your listings
2. Videos of various neighborhoods
3. Videos of local events
4. We've moved videos for your buyers
5. Marketing videos for yourself or your team
6. Videos for multimedia cds

The big advantage of Photo Story 3 is that it's easy to use, quickly creates great looking videos, and is compatible with YouTube.

Here's a sample video I created in under 10 minutes from photos I took at a county park in my area. I will soon be adding this to my real estate website.

Great info!  I'm going to spend a little time checking this out.  I was just looking at another post on the YouTube viewer and thought this would all go together nicely.
