By now, it should come as no surprise to anyone in the real estate business that listings with video see a gigantic bump in inquiries, we're talking as much as 403% according to a study published by Inman a few years ago.
But, if you're still on the fence about spending on creating real estate videos for your listings or you're not sure what kind of videos to produce, we've got you covered. Here are 13 types of videos, drone real estate videos and general ones to get the leads rolling in.
This type of video is perfect for giving potential buyers a feel for the property and the surrounding area. It's a great way to set the tone for the listing and give people a sense of what it would be like to live there. Ideally, an overview video should be short and sweet so that the potential home-buyer can quickly get all the essential facts needed to potentially shortlist the property from among the many others they're reviewing.
People want to know what the neighborhood is like before they commit to buying a property. A drone video is an innovative way to show off all the great things about the area surrounding the listing, how the neighbors live, how well the street is lit, how accessible the main roads are etc. All the little things that go into making a neighborhood a great place to live.
Is there a pool? A gym? A community garden? Whatever the amenities are, potential buyers will want to see them before they make a decision. A drone video is the best way to show off all the great features of a property.
People love being able to visualize the layout of a property before they buy it. A floorplan video is a way to do just that. It's a great way to give potential buyers a sense of the flow of the property and how they would be able to use the space. Pair this video with some basic interior decorating ideas, either from your research or when working with an interior design company, and you've just taken a huge step forward in helping the potential buyer better visualize how their future home might look and feel.
A walkthrough video is a wonderful way to show potential buyers what it would be like to live in the property. It's a great way to give them a sense of the layout and the flow of the space. How far is the children's room from the master bedroom? How accessible is the kitchen to the rest of the house? How easy is it to get inside the house from the garage with an armful of groceries? These are all examples of valid questions that homeowners might have.
