iMovie is a great tool to WOW your clients and attract buyers online...
Video is "the way to go", right?? I'm sure you've heard all of the positive aspects of implementing video into your business, but I feel many agents in the industry are intimidated by the use of video when they really should be embracing it. Many can't get past the obstacles of:
Where do I start? What should I use? But what if I'm not experienced at video??
I'm sure everyone has seen the "Virtual Tours" where the photos pan across the screen (I have been guilty of this myself). What good does that do for a buyer when they have already seen the photos?...Buyers want to feel as if they are inside the home and are taking a tour so lets give it to them!! After all, the 1st showing is online right?
Recently I have really made a push with my listings to implement video to better showcase the home. After experimenting with a variety of video apps I have determined that "iMovie" is the best in terms of quality, ease of use and it works right on my handy iPhone 5. After downloading the app from the Apple store for $4.99, I quickly & intuitively learned how to shoot & edit the video right on my phone (actually a lot of fun).
Here's my 1st two virtual tours, each taking about an 1-2 hours to shoot, edit and publish directly to YouTube. After I get more acclimated to the app I feel I'll be able to knock out video tours in about 45 minutes or less. Let me know what you think! Remember these were shot directly on my cell phone (they did lose a little bit of playback quality once I embedded them from YouTube)

Hopefully this will inspire you to get going with shooting your own virtual tours. This will allow you to save $$, WOW your sellers and attract potential buyers online by making your property stand out!
