We are big into internet marketing, as most buyers are actively searching on the internet before ever contacting an agent. We try to offer the all the newest bells and whistle to market our listing! We recently took the plunge and purchased a DJI Phantom Pro Drone. This gives us the ability to provide exterior views of the home and property, even the neighborhood and views. Videos can be added to the MLS, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Zillow, Redfin and countless other online real estate sites.
Paying for it turned out to be the easy part! Flying lesson 101 was fairly scary, thoughts of damaging our new toy or an innocent bystander was a bit overwhelming at first. We took it slow and safe, until we felt as if we had mastered the safety and flying techniques. Once we had some confidence in our flying abilities, came editing, that was another learning curve. We found some great editing software programs, one was Cyberlink PowerDirector, wow. I will admit, Katie did seem to have a knack for the editing part and putting it all together. She quickly took over the job of video “editor”, while I focused on the flying and capturing portions.
We are enjoying having that technology with us. Posting homes on YouTube gives a whole new level to internet exposure, lets face it, buyers find homes on the internet first.
