Increase The Chances for Selling Your Home (And For More Money!)

I just read an article that 11.5 BILLION videos were viewed on the internet in March 2008 alone.  Nationally, more and more stories are covering the effect of video in real estate.  It's definitely the next wave in real estate.  If you check http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pOqx_sEJtGc you can see that one of our community spotlights (for Applewood, WV) has been watched almost 4,000 times in just 6 months!  We recently sold a Southside home that had over 8,000 views in the four months it was on the market.  Since September 2007, homes above $200,000 in the Huntington MLS have a sold rate of 53% (the other 47% have either expired or are still waiting on a buyer).  Homes with videos on the web sell at a rate of over 80%.  Anyone selling their home can post a video on the internet using a digital movie camera.  Where can you see some great examples?  http://www.prudentialbunch.com/prudential_bunch/featuredhomes.php?m1=1&m2=0  More to come...

I'm becoming more and more convinced that video is a good idea. Still building the website (does it ever stop?) and had to thank you for the ideas and great blogs. I'm from WV and it's nice to check in every once in a while.
