You may wonder if property video tours are worth your time and investment. The answer? Absolutely! Video tours are one of the best ways to show your property to potential buyers.
This post will provide tips for creating the best video property tours. From getting started to improving your current process, here are some tips from those in the know.
6 Tips for Making the Best Property Video Tours
1. Get a Tripod
Tripods are essential for a smooth video. It’ll keep your camera steady and produce a more professional result. If you’re not using a tripod, viewers will be distracted by all the movement in your video.
2. Natural Lighting Is Key
When shooting your property tour, you want to take advantage of natural light. The best time to shoot is usually in the morning or late afternoon when the sun sets.
If you can, try to avoid shooting at midday when the sun is at its brightest. Too much brightness can make areas of the video hard to see. High brightness can also wash the colors out in some areas of the video.
3. Show Off Your Space
Showcase every inch of your house so potential buyers can see what they’re getting. Walk through every room and include any unique features that set your house apart from others in the area. If there’s a view worth showcasing, include a shot in the video.
4. Consider Using a Drone
Drones have completely changed what people can expect from their real estate videos. They give viewers an aerial view of the property and surrounding area. It can be a great way to showcase exteriors or properties with impressive outdoor spaces. So if you have a drone, use it! You could also hire a professional drone photographer.
5. Use Captions
Some people watch videos without sound. Make sure you add captions so viewers can read along as they watch. You should caption any critical features about your home (square footage, number of bedrooms/bathrooms). This info will help people quickly learn what makes your home unique and desirable!
6. Keep It Short and Sweet
A property tour should last no more than five minutes. Any longer, and people will get bored. Keep the video short by focusing on the things buyers want to see. Cover the kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, and unique features.
