YouTube Thursdays - Lifestyle Videos Help Sell Listings and Your Brand

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

YouTube Thursdays - July 15, 2021.  Lifestyle Videos do more than help sell your listings...





One of our signature marketing pieces for a ViewHomes of Clark County listings is a lifestyle video. Our sellers often share them with friends and family via social media. It's not only another tool to help share the "feeling" of a property, but it helps spread and fortify your brand. And, we've found, long after the house is sold, the views and branding lives on. 


Last week, we got a call from buyers hoping to see the condo we had listed. The condo sold more than ten years ago, still they found us through an old video while doing a "google" search for condos in this particular complex. While we no longer list/sell condos in this particular complex, as it's outside our niche, it's reaffirming to know lifestyle video marketing is evergreen. 


Here's our lastest lifestyle video featuring a $995,000 listing on the Washougal River.  Hope you enjoy it. 




This week, buyers from the Bay area also found us online through our videos promoting Camas and Camas listings and neighborhoods. "It's obvious you're the area experts," they said. Bernie showed them houses yesterday, and meets them again later this morning. 

Bottom line, video works!  Happy Thursday.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD Your video is wonderful.  You do an amazing job!  Your area is very beautiful. 

I started with video years ago but then fell off the wagon.  Who knows, maybe I will pick it up again.

People want to buy homes in the areas that have the lifestyle they want to live, so showing that off is definitely important.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - I can really feel the life in your lifestyle videos! One of these days, I hope I can afford a video or video cell phone camera. Your creative photography is picture perfect and I love to listen to your voice. I could see myself living in a place like Washougal, WA. 


Buyers & Sellers are in the best hands when they hire you.

Hi Debb and Bernie I love the point you're making. A listing is just two-dimensional but when you add your lifestyle videos, it is the extra layer that people are looking for.

I learnso much from your YouTube videos weekly and I thank you for sharing. I have not sold any properties on the Washougal  river but last year I sold some on the tootle river which flows into the Washougal. Sorry my spellchecker is going crazy with these river names Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD

I thought you might benefit from knowing about the Groove Digital suite of tools. It can replace pretty much EVERYTHING you use in an online business. With its "Freemium" model you can use everything for ZERO $$$.

Hope you enjoyed the video!

Now, it's time to experience the magic for yourself.
