Stu Hill’s vLog about the bLog: Videos Every Real Estate Agent Should Make

New Listings (Your’s + New on the market)

Real

Every single time you take a new listing, do a walkthrough video as proof of the business that you’re doing. Not only does it add value for the seller, but it also increases the odds that you’ll find the buyer who’s a good match for your property.

I’d go as far as popping into any vacant property that’s just hit the market and do you own marketing of that listings as a cooperating broker – do a tour and get it online. Give the listing broker credit, somehow; but, it’s a great way to take a bit of market share or SERP share from anyone searching for homes for sale in that neighborhood, or for that particular property.

Customers are drawn to people who are doing business and generating activity.

What people love (and hate) about living in your area

Odessa, Ukraine – July 07, 2018: Food Festival in Odessa, Ukraine. A lot of people attend an annual event dedicated to street food from suppliers and local restaurants.

Share with your audience all the things residents love about living in your area and the things they don’t love. Whether you’re talking about a city, a neighborhood or a subdivision, people are curious about what it’s like to live there, and these videos will draw them in.

Whether we like it or not, negativity often attracts attention. If you share that you don’t love living in your area during the summer because July and August are incredibly humid, you’ll be a bit more relatable to the people trying to learn more.

Renting vs. buying (locally)

Use this video to highlight the area you service, and include the area’s name in the title of your video. Then, really break down the specific options for your audience.

Show them the numbers of renting versus buying. Include how much an average house would sell for and a rough idea of their mortgage payment, including taxes and insurance. Then break down the monthly expenses of the lease payment versus the mortgage payment. Highlighting the potential for capital appreciation, the tax advantages of ownership and demonstrating that their payments will actually be lower than if they rent will usually reveal the value in purchasing.

Virtual Home Tours

Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and Twitter have given us unbelievable reach reach for virtual open houses, and virtual home tours. Although in-person open houses might draw 10-12 people, a Facebook or Instagram Live video allows you the opportunity to reach an audience of hundreds of people.

It demonstrates to sellers that you’re using unique methods to reach buyers, and it helps you draw a larger audience.

Favorite Local Places

People who are thinking about moving to an area want to see a highlight reel of the best things around you, so highlight a variety of offerings in your area. Include places to take the kids, places to take your spouse and any of the things you love to do. 

Shoot video at the local park, a restaurant, the farmer’s market or on a bike trail you love to ride.

Providing this insight allows potential buyers to begin to picture themselves enjoying the area. It also shows potential sellers that you are actively marketing the area to attract more potential buyers for their home, should they list with you.

Coming Soon

As soon as you take a listing, shoot a video — even if it’s with your phone — and tell your audience how excited you are to bring this house to the market in a few days. Give just a few details, such as the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, and invite interested people to private message you for more details.

These videos will demonstrate a willingness to do something different on behalf of the sellers, and you might even get a chance to double-side some of your listings.

Cost of Living (locally)

People want to understand what it will cost to live in the area they’re considering, so start by figuring out the markets that are feeding people into your area. Doing a simple Google search for demographic information for (insert feeder city) and for your area will give you the ability to create personalized comparisons.

In your video, compare the price of a house where the audience currently lives with a house in your area. The people searching for this kind of information are likely close to a buying decision, so you can help them gather the information they need and potentially engage with them before any other agents in your market.

Demographic change as a large group of people as a changing diversity in a population.

To help people get comfortable with your area, gather statistics about crime, school performance, available churches and other information that’ll help them decide whether your area is a good fit for them. They want to know whether their family will be safe, whether the schools are good and what activities will be available.

Give them the information before they even ask for it, and they’ll be far more likely to call you when they’re ready to find a house.
