Realtors who don’t currently use any software at all are quickly discovering that videos are a necessary part of staying relevant in today’s market.

That’s why many of them are adopting SmartSHOW 3D, a real estate video maker that puts emotion and excitement into client presentations without requiring extra hours in front of a computer.

All the information you need to start seeing a dramatic difference in your real estate business is right here on this page, so keep reading!

See what a real estate video can do for you!

Real estate sales increase dramatically when agents use video in their consults, on their websites, and on social media. There are a few tips and tricks to using video marketing that make it even more effective:

  • Include testimonials from satisfied customers. It builds your credibility and makes first time buyers and sellers feel more confident right away.
  • Use professional photography and videography to document your properties. Clients can tell the difference, and it really bumps the quality of your presentation up a notch!
  • Draw attention to desirable features with text and recorded commentary. Clients don’t always know what to look for on their own, but you can guide their attention.
  • Customize your presentation whenever possible. Customers who have specific needs will be particularly impressed with your attention to detail.
  • Give potential buyers a tour! You can sequence photos in your video so that they show off the flow of a particular property or include a video walkthrough.

73% of homeowners say they're more likely to list with a realtor who offers to create a video for them, but only 4% of agents make real estate listings.
