YouTube Thursdays - It's a Great Time to Fall into Videos

Real Estate Broker/Owner with ViewHomes of Clark County - Nature As Neighbors

YouTube Thursdays  - Fall Video Fodder





This beautiful season is filled with opportunities to showcase your local real estate markets. It's a great time to create a library of short videos featuring neighborhoods with the best fall foliage, seasonal events such as hayrides and pumpkin patches,  and the best local spots for seasonal treats such as apple cider and pumpkin spice lattes. 


To help you get in the creative mode, here are few ideas. 


In this first one, it's October and Charlie Dresen helps viewers prepare for winter in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. 



 This beautiful video shows a Harvest Moon rising over Albuquerque - thanks John McCormack, CRS. We especially appreciate his closing messages. 



 Andrew Mooers | 207.532.6573  aka The Maine Man features local kids making money during the potato harvest season. He's really resonating with the local values of his community in this one. 



And finally, this video tells a story of distractions as Bernie, Mac, and I go in search of fall pears along the famous Fruit Loop in the Columbia River Gorge. 




You'll notice in two of these videos, there is no dialog or on-camera appearance required. Just be sure to include your branding, a call to action, and contact information at the end. 


Much like Anita Clark 's Facebook Fridays, we encourage you to subscribe to each other's YouTube Channels - and take a minute to "like" or leave a comment. You can also add your own YouTube Channel in the comments below, and ask for subscribers. Be sure to subscribe back though - it's quid pro quo! 



Happy YouTube Thursday.

ViewHomes™ grew out of our passion for nature, beautiful surroundings, and peaceful environments. Starting together in an urban environment, over the years we've gravitated towards areas with smaller populations and less density. We now enjoy our lifestyle in a rural environment, but with close proximity to metropolitan areas where we appreciate all the amenities of fine restaurants, shopping, and an easy drive to an international airport.
Living in ViewHomes™ is like having “elbowroom for the soul”.

Hi Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD,

Much food for thought on seasonal videos. Thank you.

I already have a fall video in the re-making however it is too early into the season to share or finish it.  Our fall is about 6 weeks away.  But the aspens in Flagstaff should be yellowing in about 2 weeks.

Kathy Streib, you're right, it really is a perfect time of the year for video production. The outdoor lighting is soft and there is a glow about with the golds and reds. 

Brian England - thank you.  Fall hiking must be nice in Arizona. D

I am in small community where what happens here is not being broadcast to out of state, the country buyers. So the local agent needs to fire up the blinking red light to broadcast local fly ins ... if you hit a local business, event upload a video about the experience and help them. Show them what it is like where you live, why you love where you live. Don't just run and gun the property listings and call it good. The out of town buyer needs the local tour of the area events to entice them to move and invest in your area. Take them skiing with you.. whatever you for for fun Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD !

Great suggestion and I love how Charlie's dog kept dropping his toys to be thrown through the video.

YouTube is doing a lot of reshuffling and reformatting in the best ways to get the best possible content quality, even with the controversy with the pay structure, it’s totally worth it still! :)
