If your planning on buying a home or your a seller looking to sell your home a virtual tour or video slide show should be the first introduction to your property.  I know as a realtor, I look at the videos first to determine if this is a property my clients would be interested in.  It is so important that your Realtor spend the time to present the home in a positive light,  and it should tell a story.  It is an emotional purchase for a buyer most of the times and presenting your property with good pictures can bring a customer to the home, where as poor photos could discourage the customer from going to see the property.  Here is an example of a video that has generated over 400 views in less then 3 weeks and with that showings for the owner

I am sorry, a photo slide show with Kenny G on the clarinet is not a real estate video. The audio channel is 40% of the real video experience. The sound of your voice not scripted but one on one like the real tours you do are powerful. The walk through as you pull the buyer on the property approach, up the drive and show what you are looking at around the place. Then the one by one tour the house top to bottom shows how all the property puzzle pieces fit, flow, snap together. With drop ins of the schools are two blocks west, the hospital less than three blocks east.

A slide show regurgitates and wastes time trying to be artistic with the slice and dice and gyrating transitions. Of the same images they already scanned. Real video is 30 to 50 frames per second of life, real motion and not static images. You are at the property, beam me there Scotty. Not a still image shot, brought back from it to share.

Do genuine real estate videos, don't waste the sound. They save you, the buyer, seller so much precious time, gas, heart ache in the hide and seek to take a peek. No matter what hour, the weather, location of your buyer.

You have a way with words.  Yes I agree having a professional voice over of this slide show would do the trick.

While I agree with Andrew that a walk thru video is more useful, sometimes we don't have access or time to do that.  In those cases, something is better then nothing and I would do a slideshow like you did.

Hi Kathy,

Great blog! If the virtual tour tells some kind of story it will be much more effective.
