Painted Saw Media has recently ventured into producing Real Estate Videos! If you or somebody you know is looking to sell their home, real estate videos (also known as ‘virtual tours’ or ‘video tours’) are all the rage! And there is a reason for that. Web video gives a huge boost to Search Engine Optimization. It is a must for any agent or seller looking to attract web savvy first-time homebuyers or boost the marketing objectives of high end properties. Video Tours give a deeper and richer insight into the home. It also pushes the listing up in the search engine rankings, giving the home an advantage in search rankings over ‘non-video’ listings. This means your listing will get more attention.
This is not just speil. Forrester Research found that videos were 53 times more likely to receive an organic first-page ranking over traditional web pages. That is why Painted Saw Media now offers a real estate video package that works. Once produced, we distribute the video across major video networks such as Youtube, Vimeo, Veoh, Dailymotion, Metacafe, and Twitvid.
