The Pros of a Professional Video Tour

Convenience & Accessibility:

  • A lot of buyers in our area are coming from a greater distance away. They’re looking for a thorough overview of a property before they make the long journey to see your listing.
  • If a private showing of the home can’t be immediately organized, the video tour gives buyers a good idea of what the home will be like & what to look closer at.
  • While photos are nice to stare at and daydream about, a video tour gives buyers the impression of “walking through” the home and its actual layout.

Time & Cost Efficiency:

  • By providing this “at home” virtual preview, buyers can immediately determine if the home’s layout and features will work for their needs before wasting anyone’s time.
  • Buyers are also able to virtually tour multiple propertis before narrowing down their list of “must-see” homes; this ensures more serious buyers will be booking showings to your home.

Enhanced Visual Experience:

  • A video tour offers high quality imagery and more awareness of where each room is located and where each hallway leads.
  • Drone footage provides a “bird’s eye view” of the neighbourhood playgrounds, walking trails, shopping and amenities that buyers are looking for.

Making Sure it’s Professional

Unfortunately, not all real estate agents provide a professional video tour of their listings.  Some try shooting it themselves (have you ever seen a poorly shot cell phone video?!), and some don’t bother at all.  How is that showcasing your home in its best light?

At The Kate Broddick Team, we work with professional photographers & videographers and NEVER settle for hasty snapshots and wobbly hand-held iPhone videos.  Everything from marketing photos, virtual video tours, social media reels and more are all handled by experts in their fields and showcased across multiple platforms to give your home MAXIMUM exposure.

We even have the ability to provide your listing with full 3D Matterport virtual tours if that’s something that we agree could benefit your listing. Here’s an example of a generic Matterport tour and it’s 3D “Dollhouse” rendering.

Technology is always evolving – and different types of virtual tours are sure to come to the marketplace.  Having a real estate team with simple, quality and professional video tours (with no gimmicks) gives you the best chance at finding a buyer for your property.

The Kate Broddick Team prides itself on being classic, timeless and above all else, professional in how we showcase our listings.  Have a look at some of the past video tours we’ve done and give us a call when you’re ready to list your home!
