3 Tips to Leverage Real Estate Video Marketing Today


  1. Keep them short & sweet: People’s attention spans are shorter than ever, so it’s a good idea to keep your videos short.


Aim for videos that are 1 minute or less (15-20 seconds videos work wonders) and make each second count by providing value to your audience.


And it’s a huge plus if you use engaging visuals, music, and a clear call to action at the end to keep viewers interested and motivated to interact with you.


  1. Show off the property: Property showcasing videos continuously prove to convert better than photos alone.


Make sure to showcase the unique features and amenities of the property. And highlight its best-selling points, to give potential buyers a full sense of what it’s like to live there.


  1. Tell stories: People make decisions based on emotions, so use videos to tell a story that will create an emotional connection with potential clients.


For example, create a video sharing a story of how you helped a family sell their home successfully.


Or highlight how a particular home could be the perfect place for a growing family, using music, creative narration, and other elements to make your videos more memorable.
