There are a lot of great ways to get buyers interested in a property that's for sale. As a Realtor, you know one of those ways is through the use of a listing video. The more information buyers can get before they see a house in person, the more easily they can determine if it's a good fit for them. That saves both buyers and Realtors time and frustration.
Here's what to know about the value of listing videos and how professional home stagers can help you make your videos better than ever for faster home sales and happier buyers overall.
Why Use a Listing Video for a Property?
Using a listing video for a property gives buyers a lot of knowledge about the house and its location. Still pictures are important in real estate listings, but they don't show spaces from every angle. They also don't give most buyers a good idea of the actual flow of the house and can make the online experience of looking for a home feel choppy and unfulfilling.
What is a Virtual Tour of a Listing?
A virtual tour of a listing is a video of the space. Sometimes this consists of a series of still images, and sometimes it's an actual video walkthrough of the home. Both can work well as long as they're adding value to the listing and helping buyers get a better understanding of the home's layout and features.
What Can Home Stagers Do for Listed Properties?
Before you make a listing video for your sellers' property, work with a professional home staging company. By doing that, the video will be elevated and enhanced, giving you a leg up on your competition. Why? Because staging a property can help it look like a model home and like someone lives there in the best possible way.
When the home looks like something out of a magazine as you're walking through it to make a video, potential buyers will get a much better idea of the size of the rooms, where they can put their furniture, and how beautiful the home can really be when it's furnished and decorated. Buyers who are having trouble envisioning the finished space can do so a lot more easily with a listing video that shows a properly staged home.
Realtors and Professional Stagers are a Great Combination
Realtors know how to sell houses, and professional stagers know how to make those houses look their absolute best. It's a great combination of skill sets, especially for a listing video. More and more buyers are finding the homes they want online and narrowing their search a lot before ever contacting a Realtor to see something in person.
With that in mind, why not work with a stager to make your listing videos as beautiful and welcoming as possible? It could be the difference between a quick sale and a house that sits on the market.
