All of my readers know that I’m a huge fan of videoblogging and hope to have some new and interesting episodes of TGTV coming really soon. I recently participated in a panel discussion and Q & A at Inman’s Real Estate Connect NYC 2008 (register now for San Francisco in July) on this exact topic.
The complete video is below but despite the underlying theme of my co-panelists who seemed to convey the difficulty of producing a good video, I, perhaps naively so, remain a very strong proponent of the video tour and video blog as I have had great success with very little working knowledge of the technology that takes place in the background. I continue to believe that a well done video tour brings a much needed transparency to the real estate industry and can be achieved with a good camera person/editor and some on screen practice. And more importantly, sellers LOVE video as a marketing tool for their homes!
Here’s the panel discussion with more tips from me and my colleagues:
