I'm very excited - my Lake Wallenpaupack (and surrounding region) Real Estate YouTube channel is finally ready to launch.
Since becoming a full time Realtor in 2007, I've played around with YouTube but never took the time to create real estate videos with consistency. I have known and understood the value in YouTube and video in general, but have not allocated the time necessary to create quality content on a regular basis. One of my biggest hindrances has been time management, along with the fear of not being "polished" and "professional" enough.
While I was out with buyers however, I noticed that they took their own video to look at their favorite homes again later - they were not concerned with it being "polished" and "professional" - they wanted to be able to see the flow, the layout, the rooms to reinforce what they saw while touring the property.
There are a plethora of "polished" and "professional" quality videos out there and I didn't want to be just another voice in the cacophany of real estate marketing. I wanted to be down to earth, relevant, fresh, and interesting.
Some of my colleagues and I decided to team up and work together on these videos. We have learned as we went along - and are "polishing" our technique as we go along. We've done 7 videos so far, and we wanted to be fun, with a touch of humor. I hope we're succeeding. Heading out with another colleague today to do some more videos to be uploaded in the coming weeks.
Over time, I plan on adding some more community tours. When I see something interesting or cute (like twin fawns frolicking in the grass) I stop and take a video and upload it under my "Life in Northeast PA" playlist. What other types of videos should I include?
