YouTube Thursdays - Everybody's Talking About It!

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

YouTube Thursdays - May 20, 2021




What's going on with the real estate market?  Is it even possible to buy a house right now? Should I wait to sell? The current wild and crazy real estate market is what everybody's talking about right now. 


This week, we take a break from neighborhood videos to bring you a great example of a video tackling the questions head-on. 


Bubble, Boom, or Bust - Steamboat Real Estate Market with Charlie Dresen.


Seeing examples of video marketing done well is inspiring. Like many of Charlie's videos, this one shines. We really appreciate his ability to keep us engaged while talking about a real estate market we really have no reason to follow.


Plus, his honesty and candid advice for both buyers and sellers is refreshing. The Arlo Guthrie, Alice's Restaurant reference is a perfect one for his demographic. (You'll find it around mark 2.30 on video)


One of the reasons this video is so engaging is that Charlie takes us on a visually appealing tour of Steamboat while discussing the market nuances. The backdrop is interesting and ever-changing. The graphics are helpful too, as they provide needed reinforcement of the data. 


There's a classy move at the end too, when Charlie gives props to his camera man. He's also a new agent and Charlie tells you how to get in touch with him. 


Hope you'll consider producing your own Bubble, Boom, or Bust video. After all, it's what everybody is talking about.

You are right, this is a very well done video by Charlie.  Considering that I am tired of hearing this refrain, this was a refreshing way to state it.  A

Hi Debb... all I can say is that I'm officially envious of Charlie's skills and talent. I can talk about the market, but not that way!

Thanks Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, CRB, Phoenix Broker .  Editing goes a long way for the concise message. Wasn't the easiest to shoot. Lot of takes and retakes ; )

Thanks for sharing this, Debb and Bernie.

Charlie's videos, including this particular one, are wonderful inspiration. It's engaing, with some excellent, easy to understand points, and the local area as opposed to being in front of a green screen, is masterful! Bottom-line, he is totally convincing and authentic.

The topic is certainly on many people's minds, even those who are not right now in the market buying or selling.

He makes some great points and certainly knows what he is talking about, real estate is always such a roller coaster ride, haha.

It's definitely a roller coaster right now, Brian. D

Good video with stats and numbers once again confirming 'New Lows' are being created every month.  Locally and Nationwide.  I do enjoy the graphics being shown in more and more videos.  Attention getter.  Mark

Hi Debb,
Charlie does a great job. I wish I liked to be on camera but I don't. I do need to practice, though, so I can do some on my upcoming trip.

So right.  Excellent video.  Watching a master in this one with stats, data and views.  He never paused or lost track of what he's saying and thanks to the transitions it was super appealing to watch.  Thank you for sharing!
