Aug 27 YouTube: A Virtual Walk-Through for Real Estate
Just moving into a new townhome, I just went through the pains of visiting and searching place after place before finally finding one that matched my taste.
During the process, I had a daily routine of watching Craigslist for the latest posting and the struggle of determining from a few words and pictures whether it was worth a visit. I set up appointments, visited, and realized quickly that most places were a waste of time by the time I rolled up. For the most part- it was hit or miss.
By creating â€œvirtual walk-throughâ€ videos to sell houses, real estate agents can serve clients faster and more efficiently by giving a real view of a property. Only the extremely interested will proceed further. Not only does this save time for people like me, but it can also help real estate agents close faster.While still in itâ€™s infancy, I expect to see this to be a differentiator in the competitive retail environment, and a much needed development in real estate advertising.Perhaps as this develops further there will be a better integration with YouTube and Craigslist to facilitate the search. At least, that is for me to hope.
