6 Reasons why a video could help to sell your home

It’s time to sell your home. But don’t let it make you feel anxious or fuzzy-headed – we’ve got you covered. We’ve been in this game for a long time now, over 20 years to be exact, and we know what works. First up, you’ll need to clean your home and stage your personal spaces so they shine. This bit is key because first impressions really do count.
Once you’ve cleaned your property and it’s looking its very best, it’s time to allow people to take a look around. We know this is carried out in person traditionally, but we think it’s really important that prospective buyers are able to view your home at their fingertips, at a time that suits them.
With this being said, we’ve put together a list of 6 reasons why a professional video could help to sell your home…


Did you know that more than 90% of all buyers find their homes online?* With over 90% of people exposed to a full video tour of your home, we think you’re in with a pretty good chance of getting it sold!


Professional videos hone in on the specials features in your home. With a video, you can choose what you want your audience to see, allowing you to focus on the features you would like to highlight such as a vertical shot of a spiral staircase.


As mentioned above, virtual viewing allows prospective buyers to feel like they are actually there inside your home, giving them a sense of what the property is like before booking a viewing in person. This method works well to filter out people who might decide it’s not for them, in comparison to those who have seen your ‘teaser’ video and are very serious about buying your home.


Property videos are popular because they can easily be shared online to social media accounts such as InstagramFacebookLinkedIn, and websites such as RichardJames.ukRightmoveZoopla and Boomin. Sharing a video to many different places allows it to reach more people, rather than just posting a standard property listing. 


For the sale of larger properties, videos work especially well because they allow the viewer to fully appreciate the wealth of space that the property has to offer. Videographers can be very creative when shooting these types of videos by switching up the angles and camera’s used, for example using drone shots to help show off the size of the land from above.


Finally, rather than having just one viewing of your home at a time, a professional property video allows hundreds of people to look at the house simultaneously online, gaining your property a much broader exposure. We know it sounds genius, but only 14% of agents* are using video to market homes!
