If you've been in Real Estate very long, you know that there is a huge push to jump into video.
Everyone says, "You gotta do video."
"Video is the way marketing is going."
"Get a drone and do cool video fly around stuff!"
But the problem is that video is tricky.
I mean, we've all seen those videos we've tried to do where we walk around and talk about the house right? How interesting can you be when you're holding a camera in front of you and talking about a bathtub that is from the 70's?
The other problem is that being in front of the camera is tricky.
What do you say?
How do you keep it interesting?
Should it be serious or can it be fun?
Recently I came across a very cool video by the awesome Terry Waggoner. It was so good, Inman picked it up and wrote up a cool article about it.
So, inspired by Terry, we decided to take the leap and jump into the world of video. I decided to shoot the first one at an inspection I attended for my kiddo Sheldon Haywood.
I found immediately that knowing where to look is surprisingly hard. I was shooting with my Iphone and kept looking over at the button you push to start recording. Looking into the phone feels weird at first.
Also, thinking up what to say and how to shoot stuff makes you think outside the box.
WAY OUTSIDE the box.
All in all, we're prety happy with our first attempt in the world of video. But we'd like some feedback from you. Would you do us a favor and go check it out and then let us know what you think?
Looking forward to your comments!
