Real Estate Marketing Leader InfoTube.net® And YouTube.com® Create New Opportunities for Home Sellers
August 06, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsAsheville, NC - (August 6, 2008) – Crow Erickson Inc, the leading manufacturer of outdoor marketing materials for real estate agents, home builders and individual home sellers announced today that www.infotube.net has been enhanced to include "do-it-yourself" video tours of homes for sale.
Today's announcement is the latest example of how InfoTube.net is investing in new technology to assist home sellers in today's market place.
"Our new video service, with free uploads to YouTube.com, creates a fantastic opportunity for home sellers, real estate agents and home builders to expose their property to a world wide audience," said Tommi Crow, Founder and President of Crow Erickson, Inc. "Our technology, combined with the power of Youtube.com, makes it easier than ever to create a video home tour that is accessible from anywhere."
While it is not news that 80% of would-be homebuyers start their search for a home on the internet, the practice of using video to view real estate is just beginning to boom. Unlike still photographs or 360-degree tours, video clips add a personal touch that helps home shoppers decide which home might be right for them. "Our videos are an actual walk-through of the property, just like you were walking through the home yourself," said Crow. "The content is user generated and often features scenes from the neighborhood and town, too. Each video is unique and has a personality all its own, which can really make the task of home screening a lot quicker and more fun."
Only a small fraction of home sellers and real estate agents take advantage of the marketing potential that video brings to an entirely new audience. As Crow explained: "While video tours won't replace seeing a home in person, they certainly provide an exciting opportunity to capture the attention of an elusive creature…today's homebuyer. InfoTube is excited to be a part of this powerful, new trend in marketing homes."
