Using Video to Help Out-of-Town Buyers View Phoenix Real Estate

avatarthumbnail.jpgOne of the most difficult aspects of shopping for real estate online and from a distance is getting a true feel for a house. Simply put, photographs lie.

Not so with video. And so I found myself at a home a week or so ago filming video of a property in which one of my clients was interested.

What you see below is the first snippet. What was intended as a pause ended up being a stop and I needed to shoot a second video. Which actually was for the best, as I can’t post that video online because it mentions the address of the property and I’d hate to be accused of advertising someone else’s listings.

Production quality was good but not spectacular (it was a first attempt) and the audio is almost as bland as something George Lucas wrote (“I’ve got a bad feeling about this.”)

Still, at the end of the day my client got a much better feel for this particular home, which made making a decision from 2,000 miles away much easier than without the video.

Looking to buy in the Phoenix real estate market and looking for similar service? Use the contact form at the top or give us a call. I do ask that a buyer broker agreement be put into place before I’ll shoot video, but I think the added value’s worth it.
