Is Video REDUCING the Number of Showings You Get?I've been videoing properties that I list long before it was the popular thing to do but over the last 3-5 years, I'm noticing a large number of online hits compared to a very small number of showings. The bright side of this is that many of my listings sell after only a few actualy showings. What does this mean? Sellers that allow their agent to video their homes and publish multiple photos will likely get fewer showings. Buyers would rather start their search online to rule out the ones that don't appeal to them. Videos really help in most cases. It is important to remember that the agent that is videoing and photographing your home is not working LESS simply because they have fewer showings. What has really happened is: your home is not being shown to MORE consumers and really every physical showing has got a much STRONGER chance of resulting in an offer. Ultimately, when the agent calls to say that a showing is scheduled (for homes with videos and multiple photos), be sure to have EVERY DETAIL in order from the driveway, to the front door, to the dust on the top of the fridge...every detail. The buyer coming to your home already saw it once on;ine and want to make sure it is as nice or BETTER in person.December 29 2011 - US11YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
