Using YouTube Video

Real Estate Agent with Remax 200 Realty BK645994

I have a couple moving down from New York, and they are purchasing a new condo that is under construction. I wanted to keep them up to date on the progress that was being made on their new home. Pictures are great, and thanks to the internet and digital photography, very easy to share with my out of state customers. I use YouTube videos to advertise my listings, so I thought, "why not use video to give them more perspective on the construction process?" I decided to take it a step further, but creating a page on my website dedicated to their condo being built. That way if they had difficulty with their e-mail, they could always refer back to the web page. Since they were referred to me by their daughter (she and her husband have been great customers of mine for years), she could also check out the web page and see how things were going.

Over the years I have worked with a lot of people moving here from out of state, and many times they have been in this exact same position. Now thanks to video and the ease of sharing it with YouTube and similar technologies, I can really keep my customers in the loop. If you would like to take a look at the page just check out

Great idea.  Not only is it keeping your clients informed, but it is nice "content" up there, for anyone who stumbles across your site, showing that you go the extra mile.  We have previewed listings before for out of town buyers, and Youtube is a great platform for that.  I can't believe that there are still people out there who are not doing video tours of is just so easy, and important.    Keep up the good work!

Fantastic idea!!! I am sure they are sharing with their family and friends and that means more referrals.
