You can make just about any type of real estate video. All you need is your imagination.
I created my own set of videos and included step-by-step instructions. I’ll update the instructions as I complete each new video – but you can download my first step-by-step instructions by clicking here!
You can view my videos below ( I’ll add new videos each day):
A Professional Video Intro
You can start each video with a professional video intro by animating your company logo. I created a sample video with a number of different options you can use to start your videos.
A Home Tour
I spliced together a mp4 video corporate intro clip with still home exterior and interior photos to create a simple video tour. It took 7 minutes.
Coming Soon ( I accidentally deleted my videos when I updated my software … will take a day or two to quickly redo them) –

Zillow has a very powerful free marketing feature that allows real estate agents to “claim their listings”. The feature is open to every listing agent and you don’t need to advertise on Zillow to claim your listings.
The benefit is that you get free premium advertising on all of your own listings. In particular, you get a free listing agent ad that appears above the paid ads of competing agents.
The difference is that the listing agent ad is free, it’s designated as the listing agent and it appears at the top of the ad list.
Look how the listing agent Patrick Dolan has the top ad.
In order to claim your listings it needs to (i) appear on Zillow and (ii) you need to create a free Zillow account. Continue reading →
Renault knocked it out the social media park with this viral video of a prank test drive on a few unsuspecting car buyers.
I laughed my socks off. Hit that like or share button if you enjoyed the video.
And to make sure they’re not viewed as sexist, they did a second ad for the ladies!
The ads went viral and had millions of views … thanks to people sharing on social media.
Now here’s the lesson. You don’t need to shoot your own viral videos to get traffic to your websites. You can simply embed any video that’s already gone viral, just like I did here. Thanks for visiting my website
Here’s the REMCamp list of 15 Best Real Estate Blogs and Bloggers.
We picked the list based on content, design and sometimes just the sheer force and personality of the bloggers. And it doesn’t hurt that almost all the bloggers are also very successful real estate professionals.
I interviewed a number of the top real estate bloggers and was struck by the realization that they all have one thing in common. It’s an intangible thing that’s hard to explain but you know it when you see it.
That one thing is this – their blogging has transcended their blog and they’re now viewed as an integral part of their community. They’ve achieved local brand recognition and now get almost all their business from referrals and past customers.
In a weird kind of way they have become local celebrities, instantly recognized when they walk down the street and viewed as a credible and trustworthy source of local news and information.
In short they’ve become trusted community leaders.
I found it difficult to articulate this observation into words so let me share a few real life examples.
