Selling Houses On A $10 Budget

There are times when the marketing budget is limited while looking to sell a property. Sometimes it is more practical to spend on marketing instead of spending hundreds or thousands producing a professional video. After all, there are plenty of poorly shot videos which still get tons of views. This is where a Smart Phone Property Tour makes a big difference.


Sometimes a listed property will only have certain rooms or areas that will appeal to potential buyers. That could be another reason why it isn’t worth having a professional video shoot. Many agents spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on a video tour, and then lack the funds to generate views.


Many smart phones include video cameras with good to excellent quality. An agent can create his or her own video at a listed property. He or she can script and narrate it while walking through various rooms. Or, they can concentrate on the kitchen or rooms which are the best selling points. This can be done with or without editing or post production, such as music or tight edits.


If not satisfied with how it looks, a video can be done again until it looks “right”. Once it is completed, it can easily be available for viewing through both android and iPhones. By choosing a Smart Phone Property Tour, the video, regardless of length, can easily be seen by potential buyers.


There are no technical requirements beyond submitting your video with the order. A custom web link will be assigned. The direct link to the video can be based on the street address of the property, the name of the development, or the name of the listing agent.


Within a matter of hours, the property video can be promoted to potential buyers at little to no additional expense. The agent simply adds the link to existing web pages and social media feeds, as well as printed materials. In some circumstances, it can be placed on the For Sale sign at the property.


Obviously, whenever a potential buyer likes what they see on their phone, they can quickly and easily contact the agent. After all, he or she already has their phone in their hands! This one-step process enables hundreds of potential buyers to easily view the video and contact the agent.


Cost is only $10 per month per property, with no limit to the number of listings which can be submitted. Smart Phone Property Tours are available now.

Getting Your Video Tours On Potential Buyer Phones

Some agents spend a significant portion of their marketing budget for a listing to have a Matterport tour produced and ready to go as soon as possible. No matter how excellent the finished product is, the challenge becomes getting as many potential buyers as possible to see it. The new Smart Phone Property Tour feature comes to the rescue.


The agent’s web page may not have enough visitors to generate significant enough viewing. When placed on the company’s website, their tour often becomes one of many currently available. Social media promotion results tend to vary. In those situations, a potential buyer may easily be distracted by seeing other similar listings.


Meanwhile, chances are most home buyers have no idea what Matterport is or does. Some agents will not share a tour with their buying clients because they do not spend on them for their own sellers. Advertising of the listing needs to contain the important facts and amenities of the listing.


With a Smart Phone Property Tour to support a professional video tour, potential buyers can easily experience your listing. It becomes one easy step for them to have it on their phone for easy viewing. This is technology they can easily use, whether they have an android or iPhone.


There is absolutely nothing to change or add to your professional video tour. The result is that it becomes available to potential buyers everywhere they can use their phone.


Each “tour” is assigned a custom easy to remember link, which can be selected by the listing agent. The custom link could contain the property address or street number, such as 7654 for 7654 Main Street. It could be the name of the development, such as "West Hills", or the name of the listing agent.


Creating an easy link for potential buyers makes it simple to pick up their phone and check out the tour. It will be just as easy for them when linked from social media or anywhere else. The agent is able to choose their custom link, subject to availability.


A Smart Phone Property Tour is available for only $10 per month per property.
