Video is rapidly becoming buyer’s top choice for searching for properties online. I know for large houses of 10,000 sqft- it gives a better sense of how the rooms are and quality of the space. With video, buyers can interact with a property in a way that is not possible with 2D still photography. Videos capture motion and get buyers excited. Making a quality video is quite a production. A video shoot may require a cinematographer, video editor, sound, and visuals which makes videos more expensive than photos. While the expense of video production $3,000 – $10,000 makes it cost prohibitive for listings under 2M, there are some value video companies starting to appear that can keep the budget manageable between $1,000 – $2,000 for smaller properties. Video production cost can range from $3,000 up to $10,000 or more depending on the size of the property, whether or not models are hired, luxury cars are rented, and whether you want evening and day video, and drone video. The length of the video, voice over actors, and having custom soundtrack can also affect the price. I would not recommend for the video to last longer than 2-5 minutes. These type of content is primarily for sharing on Social Media (Facebook, Youtube, Instagram, Website) so viewers are looking for shorter length content.
Berlyn Photography has had the best real estate picture slideshow for years. They have been very prolific because they are hired by some of the top luxury realtors in the city.
