Facts About Real Estate Photography & Virtual Tours and Videos

FACT: Listings having professional photographs sell 50% faster and 39% closer to the asking price.

A study compared 350 listings using professional photography against 350 self listings in the same ZIP code. Those having used professional photography sold 50% faster and 39% closer to the original listing price than the homes without professional photos.

FACT: Listings with professional photographs get 61% more views.

The National Association of Realtors reports that listings using professional photography get 61% more views online. In fact, many buyers say they won't even consider visiting a home in person if the photos online are not of professional quality.

FACT: Virtual tours receive 87% more views.

Realtor.com reports that listings with virtual tours receive 87% more views that listings without one.

Fact: Zillow.com reports that listings with walkthrough videos are viewed 300% more views than listings without one.

Real Estate Videos Help Sell Your Listings Even Faster by Increasing Inquiries

The rise of technology and the use of the Internet has definitely moved us towards a visually-based culture. This can be clearly seen in the real estate industry. As a matter of fact, Realtor.com statistics report that listings with virtual tours receive 87% more views than listings without tours (including those with still photos alone).

Video Virtual tours make a property stand out among online listings. According to the National Association of Realtors 54% of home-buyers will not even look at a property unless it has a virtual tour. This tells you that if you don't have a video virtual tour, you will automatically be losing more than half of your potential customers.

What these statistics don’t tell you is the definition of a virtual tour. Historically a virtual tour is a video slideshow with text graphics and music. However, today it also includes walkthrough videos and/or 360° 3D Matterport tours. Walkthrough Videos are certainly more entertaining and take much less effort than than 360°3D tours. As a matter of fact, Zillow reports that listings with walkthrough videos get 300% more views than those without. That’s not surprising, given the information density and memorability of video. You’ve heard that a picture is worth 1,000 words? Forrester Research found that just one minute of video is worth 1.8 million words — that’s the same as roughly 3,600 Web pages of text. And according to the Online Publishers Association, 80 percent of viewers remember what they’ve seen in online videos. Video Virtual Tours, Walkthrough Videos and Professional Home Tour Videos factually accomplish that goal.

Snap2Close offers four different video and video combination solutions to help you sell your listings even faster and for more money. These are Video Virtual Tours, Zillow Mobile App Walkthrough Videos, Enhanced Walkthrough Videos and Professional Home Tour Videos. Each of these is detailed below.

real estate videos and virtual tours for Phoenix and Scottsdale

Real Estate Video Virtual Tours

It’s common to hear “video tours” and “virtual tours” lumped together in the same category, as if they’re the same thing. In reality, video tours and virtual tours are worlds apart in what they offer sellers, buyers and agents. A Video Virtual Tour is a slideshow of your professional photographs with "Ken Burns-Effects" (also known as "pan-and-scan"), background music and motion graphics. Video Virtual Tours generate an emotional and entertaining viewing experience for the potential home buyers as well as giving the Realtor an excellent piece of media to help the engage future clients. ARMLS and Realtor.com gives special recognition to listings that have a video virtual tour. The advantage for Realtors is that Virtual tours are easy to create and as such are inexpensive.

Snap2Close video virtual tours are template based and created using Adobe After Effects software. Each Virtual Tour is produced twice - one unbranded for your custom unbranded website and ARMLS and one branded for you to share on multimedia. We currently offer the following four Video Virtual Tour templates.  Note: To see the videos at full resolution please click on the title of the Video Virtual Tour.  This action will open a new tab and take you directly to our Vimeo channel.

Understanding How to Use Real Estate Videos to Increase Your Online Clicks and Inquiries

The secret that only a few successful Realtors know is that the playing field is not level when it comes to Realtor.com, Zillow, Trulia and others listing sites. So it is vitally important for all Realtors to understand how to maximize the benefits of using video to achieve an increase in the number of potential buyer inquires. For example, Realtor.com accepts Video Virtual Tours and places the following icon on top of the first image on the listings website: Virtual Tour Icon Whereas Zillow and Trulia do not accept Video Virtual Tours. However, Realtor.com does not provide an icon indicating that the listing has a walkthrough video or other professional video. As a matter of fact, Realtor.com does not even show walkthrough or professional videos on their website. However, savvy Realtors know that placing their videos along side their Video Virtual Tours on the VR Tour link solves that problem. Note: Snap2Close's unbranded MLS-compliant websites includes space for Video Virtual Tours, Walkthrough and Pro Videos, Drone Videos, Panoramas, and Matterport 360° 3D Tours. To our knowledge, no other real estate photography or video service in Phoenix area provide you with such a comprehensive Mls-compliant website.

Conversely, Zillow and Trulia do not allow Realtors to use Virtual Tours or website links on their websites, yet they will display an icon for a walkthroughs video or other professional video. Zillow displays an Zillow Video Walkthrough Icon icon on the first photo and Trulia simply displays a Trulia Video Icon icon on listings with a video. Zillow, which also owns Trulia, allows Zillow Premier Agents and Zillow Certified Photographers to record a 2 minute video using their Zillow Mobile App. While these videos are proven to create many more listing clicks (potential home buyers clicking on the listing) they can also be very boring because they do not include any background music, graphics, titles, or professional editing. To better learn about the typical quality of a Zillow Walkthrough Video then simply visit their website at Zillow.com and look at several of their videos. Most of these are videoed by Zillow Premier Agents who do not use any type of stabilization equipment and the resulting videos can be pretty jerky and difficult to watch. However, any true walkthrough video, whether from their mobile app or a more professional video camera setup, will receive improved sort order ranking in the Zillow search results. This means many times more clicks and therefore more inquiries.  However, it is important to note that Zillow Mobile App Walkthrough Videos cannot be used on MLS, Realtor.com or any other IDX website using MLS. This is a reason you should seriously consider having an Enhanced Walkthrough Video or Pro Home Video Tour as they will more likely turn clicks into actual inquiries.

Snap2Close offers three types of Real Estate Walkthrough or Pro Home Tour Videos, all of which use professional 3 or 4-Axis Gimbal stabilizers, including the Zillow App video. Below are samples and descriptions of the three different types of videos offered.

Walkthrough and Pro Home Tour Videos

Zillow Mobile App Walkthrough Video

Snap2Close offers Zillow Mobile App Walkthrough Videos utilizing a 3-Gimbal DJI OSMO Mobile 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizer, which holds and balances the cell phone thereby creating a much smoother video. Also, since we shoot a great many videos each week, we are very experienced at creating Zillow videos in a logical order and that are much smoother and easier to watch.

Zillow Walkthrough Videos with OSMO Mobile 2 Stabilizer used in Phoenix and Scottsdale

The most significant drawback with a Zillow Mobile App Walkthrough Video is that it cannot be used on ARMLS or any other MLS or IDX system and cannot be used on Realtor.com, nor can they be used on social Media sites like Facebook or YouTube. Nor can they can not they be used on Snap2Close custom single property listing websites. This is a significant limitation for Realtors and Agents trying to market their listings.

While we only charge $25 for a Zillow Mobile App Walkthrough Video, the limitations of it's use and it's "boring" factor and limited use must be kept in mind.

Enhanced Walkthrough Video (1080p)

Snap2Close offers a unique Enhanced Video Walkthrough as a very affordable alternative to the limited Zillow walkthrough video. These videos can be up to 6 minutes long, are recorded with either a DJI Osmo' Zenmuse X3 Camera with a built in 3-Axis Gimbal Stabilizer stabilizer or a Canon DLSR Video camera on a Ronin S 4 axis stabilizer. Both cameras records video at HD 1080p and are much higher quality camera than your typical Apple or Android mobile phone used for Zillow Walkthrough Videos. Our Enhanced Video Walkthroughs are professionally edited using Adobe's Premiere Pro and After Effects software, and include motion graphics, and background music. The resulting quality is perhaps a 1,000% better, more entertaining and comprehensive than a limited Zillow App video.

Enhanced Real Estate Video Walkthroughs with OSMO+ in Phoenix and Scottsdale

The great advantage of a Snap2Close Enhanced Video Walkthrough for your listing is that it can be embedded in ARMLS, used on multiple MLS systems, Realtor.com, and your listing's custom websites, as well as be published on Facebook and other social media sites. Plus, since Snap2Close is a Zillow Certified Photographer it automatically uploads your Enhanced Video Walkthroughs directly to Zillow and Trulia thereby giving you improved sort order rankings in their search results.

 

Pro Home Tour Video (4K)

The Pro Home Tour Video a totally different type of video than our walkthrough video and features not only the flow of the home but also highlights its best features. Plus, our Pro Home Tour Videos can also feature agent introductions. The Pro Home Tour video is recorded with a ultra high quality full frame Canon camera and utilizes both the DJI Ronin-M and Ronin-S 4-Axis Gimbal Stabilizers which provides ultra smooth jib, pan and tilt video clips. Plus the Ronin family of camera stabilizers are standard equipment in the film industry thereby allowing for much smoother walkthrough videos, and motorized pans and tilts. Pro Home Tour Videos are typically professional appearing and enticing to potential home buyers. Our Pro Home Tour Videos are professionally edited using Adobe's Premiere Pro and After Effects software, and include motion graphics and titles, and background music.

The Snap2Close Pro Video Home Tour is also compatible with all MLS systems and can viewed on Realtor.com as a part of a video virtual tour and can be used on any custom website a listing may have and can be posted on Facebook and other social media sites. Additionally, Pro Video Home Tours are automatically uploaded to Zillow improving your listing's location inf the search results.

Phoenix Area Drone Photos and Videos

Snap2Close also offers professional aerial drone photos and videos in the Phoenix area. Our sophisticated radio controlled quadcopters are specially equipped with industry exclusive hardware and high end 4K Ultra HD cameras needed to create exceptional drone videos every time. And, our pilots are FAA licensed UAV (unmanned aerial vehicle) drone pilots.

Our DJI Phantom 4 Pro Plus V2.0 drones allow us to capture beautiful high resolution aerial photography that can't be acquired with other aerial platforms. Full-time camera control, live camera view, GPS drone stabilization, and precise stabilized gimbals allow us to capture epic low-light imagery never thought possible on a flying platform. Real-time GPS on-screen display allow us to frame up the perfect shot at the precise height and location you request. Here are two sample drone videos.

Aerial drone videos captures unique, high-altitude perspectives of properties in a way that no other image- or video-capture technology can. Aerial drone videos help convey the complete spatial view of a property and present a true lifestyle view. From proximity to parks, topographic features such as mountains, valleys and lakes and in some cases vast acreage aerial drone videos highlights benefits that can't be captured through ground-based photography and video.

HD virtual aerial video renderings to help showcase properties or locations with panoramic fly overs.

We use existing Google Earth Pro imagery to create customized 30 second video renderings that show views of the entire property as well as nearby schools, green spaces, transportation links, housing density and nearby amenities at a glance. While not a good as professional drone videos, these virtual flyovers using Google Earth imagery is perfect for locations that are in FAA restricted no-fly zones, as well as for those Realtors who have a tight budget.

If you listing is close to a park, golf course, schools or important shopping areas then this is a very nice add-on service.

 

State-of-the-Art Matterport® PRO 3D Virtual Tours

While 360 Panorama Tours can clearly show each and every room of your listing, the Matterport 3D Virtual Tours is a way to take the potential buyer to the next level. On average, potential buys spend three times more time viewing a listing with immersive 3d tours than listings with photos alone. Plus, showing your new potential listing client that your professional marketing efforts includes three dimensional virtual tours is a way to set yourself apart from other Phoenix area agents.

So if a picture is a worth a thousand words, the best way to explain the Matterport 3D Tour is to demonstrate it. Click this link to view a sample. https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=obbWPtxNuMM&mls=1

To navigate the Matterport click the 'Play' button (triangle) in the center of the Matterport Tour. When the tour starts, the lower left-hand corner of the screen will contain a series of icons. The walking symbol takes you to the virtual 3D walkthrough (default). There are also icons for 'Dollhouse View' and a photo-realistic top-down floor plan.

How does Matterport work?

Our scans are done using the Matterport® PRO 2 4K 3D Camera. This unique device allows us to 'walk' your home, taking a series of detailed, Hi-Res 360 degree scans along the way. After the entire property has been 'mapped', the culmination of all images is merged and configured into an immersive 3D world that visitors can interact with on any device including PC's, tablets, cell phones, and virtual reality headsets such as Google Cardboard or Samsung

Imagine having potential buyers from just about anywhere in the world being able to walk the interior of your listing just like they were there! The detail and immersiveness of this unique tool will keep potential buyers engaged and interested.

Matterport Floor Plans

We need to point out to our customers that Zillow, and Trulia which is owned by Zillow will not show Matterport, iGuide, or any other types of Panorama photos except the ones generated by their own mobile app designed for iPhones. Their mobile app is currently in a beta test and once the beta test has been completed, will be offered by Snap2Close. However, Matterport has partnered with Realtor.com and given special recognition on listings.
