Whether it’s a seller’s market or a buyer’s market, studies have shown that quality images can be a contributing factor in selling your property. So, which option is best for you? Should you choose home video tour, or a picture slide show–or both? In this blog article, Exclusive Edge Media compares and contrasts Luxury Home Video tours with Picture Slide Shows, so you can determine which media option best suits your clients.

Luxury Home Video Tours

PROS

What’s better than a picture? A video! Exclusive Edge Media not only provides your client a Luxury Home Video Tour, but it’s considered the best way to cast a wide net in the field of real estate. You see, Home Video Tours showcase a property to multiple buyers at once, instead of just one at a time. Serious homebuyers will be able to view the flow of the home, and know all the intricacies of each space. Furthermore, studies have shown that video does a better job of evoking emotion than a picture does, which ultimately results to a swifter buying/selling process.

Secondly, adding a Home Video Tour to your real estate listing is a safe choice during a national pandemic. In fact, virtual tours for real estate have increased significantly since March of 2020. Other than showcasing the property itself, the Home Video Tours allow potential buyers to view the home from multiple perspectives all from the safety of their computer or smartphone.

Also, Home Video Tours offer a great solution for those prospective buyers that like to bring family or friends along for the viewings. You can now avoid those unwanted comments from non-buyers as you show the listing! Instead, your potential buyers will now be able to share the video tour to anyone they want.

CONS

Ideally, it’s a great idea to have a video for every new property you list; however, we understand that the cost of hiring a Professional Home Videographer, such as Exclusive Edge Media, may not be feasible for all of your listings.

While most people shy away from Home Video Tours due to cost, Exclusive Edge Media offers affordable high-quality packages. In addition, hiring a professional video company will attract more buyers, and ultimately, save you time in the long run.

FINAL THOUGHTS

Exclusive Edge Media offers high-quality packages for Home Video Tours starting as low as $150 for a Basic Video Tour, and only $250 for the Deluxe Video Tour. We work with Real Estate Agents, Real Estate Brokers, Hosts of Rentals, and Rental Management Agencies to capture professional and inviting Home Video Tours for residential, commercial, and land real estate.

Real Estate Photography Slide Shows

PROS

Pictures has been used to communicate since the dawn of humanity, and even before spoken language. It’s no surprise that images have more power over words. The minute you put more stock into your listing’s description and you use unflattering photos, your chances of selling the home reduce drastically. If Home Video Tours are not your thing, that’s okay, because we feel that our Real Estate Photoshoots are unparalleled.

It’s no secret that potential homebuyers shop around for houses online before they even decide to see the property in person. Moreover, how you market your properties reflects how you conduct business as a real estate agent. In today’s demanding consumer society, it’s a win-win if you give the buyer what the want:Precision photography.

Finally, we do more than just work with real estate brokers. We work with a vast array of clients including hosts of AirBNB, VRBO rentals, Rental Agencies, Property Management Companies, Real Estate Offices, and even sellers of For Sale By Owner (FSBO).

CONS

The biggest downfall for Picture Slide Shows is that sometimes potential buyers cannot visualize the flow of the space. By just presenting this type of media to your clients, they have to use their imagination to merge all of the images together to understand the layout. That’s where a Home Video Tour can assist. By creating a Home Video Tour with Professional Photography, you’ll be amazing at the positive feedback from potential buyers.

FINAL THOUGHTS

Exclusive Edge Media delivers what is called a “flambient” composite image. This means we layer multiple exposure photos using a combination of Flash Layers and Ambient Layers. 1 photo could be made up of between 2-9 raw photos. We do not deliver the basic “3 bracketed” HDR photos that many real estate photographers do. This is why our photos are of a higher quality and we can take on more challenging photoshoots.

The Real Estate Advantage

Exclusive Edge Media provides both Luxury Home Video Tours and Real Estate Photography Slide Shows at affordable rates. We offer à la carte options, as well as bundles to help our real estate clients the best bang for for their buck.

Our services cover Montrose, Telluride, Ridgway, Ouray, Crested Butte, Arrowhead, Cimarron, Gunnison, Dolores, Grand Junction and Durango, and anywhere else in Colorful Colorado. While the Western Slope is our specialty, Exclusive Edge Media Team is happy to travel to you, wherever you may be, in order to provide you with the leading technology in Home Video Tours and Real Estate Photography.
