Are you using video marketing yet in your property management company?Some staggering statistics suggest you should be.
The internet has become the first stop for buyers and renters when looking for a new home. At this point the majority of agents and property managers are not using video, so that gives you a HUGE advantage over the competition.
Time after time I hear about owners choosing a property management company simply because they are using Video Marketing. It was the deciding factor in their choice.
5 Advantages of Using Video in Your Marketing
Convenience of Video
In the busy world we live in, people are looking for efficient use of their time. Pre-qualifying homes by previewing them through video tours from the comfort of home is a huge time saver for both agent and potential buyer/renter.
People want the ability to look through 10-20 homes in a short period of time. Compare the time required viewing them via video vs. driving around to see all of them and you will easily see the advantage of video.
