The days of just showing your real estate listing prospects a paper based presentation are over. Today you need a multi-media laptop presentation for impressing your prospects and closing listings just to be competetive. Here are some ways for getting an edge on your competition and scoring more listings:
Create A Real Estate Video Slideshow
A great thing to show prospects at the listing presentation is a video slideshow on DVD of your previously sold homes. A slideshow video of your current listings is a great addition to your handout package at open houses. Slideshow vieos are really easy to make, you don’t need any special computer knowledge or skills to create them, and you can create a great looking show in under 15 minutes. The best program I’ve found for creating video slideshows is Animoto.
Have your photographer go through the home and the home’s exterior and take lots of pictures. Take as many pictures as you want. A single DVD can store literally thousands of pictures. With Animoto you can easily create really impressive looking transitions between slides, and you can even add any music you want to the slideshow with an MP3 file.
A company called Benchmark Rich Media allows you to send video emails. As soon as someone opens the email a video starts playing with sound as well. You can easily make the video in this email one of your video slideshows. If there ever was a way of creating a viral effect with emails to your database this is it.
An ideal complement to the video slideshow is my Pro Presenter listing presentation tool. It’s free to demo and my website will make a personalized listing presentation for you. (This is best viewed in IE) It’s a vivid demonstration of how Pro Presenter can dazzle your prospects and get you more listings. My RECO approved courses, ” The Electronic Listing Presentation and Developing A Listing System” help you know how to best use these tools mentioned above for impressing your prospects and getting those new listings.
