Video Drive Through of Bird Key. Would This Video Help Out of Town Buyers?

By
Real Estate Agent with DWELL Real Estate

I just made a video about the Bird Key subdivision in Sarasota, Florida. The production could have been a lot better but it was more of an experiment. I am not trying to win awards for video but more concerned with the value to a potential buyer. If I was thinking of buying a home in another area I would find a video drive through of interested neighborhoods useful.

If you were a buyer from out of town contemplating a purchase on Bird Key. Would you find this video useful?

Marc,

How did you get the video so steady while driving and then what did you use to put the music on it?  I don't know if I would have done a talk over explaining the area.

Hi Russ,

Thanks for the comment. I actually propped a tripod on the car door. I thought of a talk over but it is a little difficult to come up with content for two to three minutes of driving through a neighborhood.

I used Pinnacle Studio software.

Useful to a home buyer?

I would think so.  They get a feel of the neighborhood. Maybe a little slower next time.

Just a thought Marc, and believe me I'm not expert.  Some of the community other than homes maybe?  Park and playground areas.  Shops? Resaruant areas.  Malls (I know, I'm a guy and I'd rather take a beating than go to a mall).

People?  Seems it would be good to have people in the video.  I look at it and think, "hey, does anyone live here?"

Now before you think I'm being a huge critic, first of all, congrats on making the effort!  I've talked and still haven't done it!  I thought the quality was excellent too.

Personally I think you're on the way...

Oh one more thing Marc.  YOU should be in there somewhere.  People want to know that you're a real person.  Show yourself.
