Real estate videos, only do those for your most expensive listings right? Where did that myth come from and nothing could be further from the best practices. Unless you hire out most of what you do as a real estate professional, real estate videos should be happening for all your property listings. The community events for the show and tell of what's it like where the real estate listings are location is pretty darn important too.Unless you only want to list and sell to local real estate buyers, videos put the community and what happens around the what's for sale today on the map.The outside your local market area real estate buyers can watch your video broadcast too if you have a strong, robust real estate video channel. So if real estate video is so helpful and what property buyers wa...

Real estate video, don't just use it on your most expensive listings. Only luxury properties deserve video, that is real estate myth #1. Where does that real estate video myth come from anyway? It's prevalent in circles of real estate agents and brokers who hired out the tasks. Someone reasoning that the bigger price tag properties makes the "do a video" necessary or a worthwhile expense.But what if you don't hire out everything from sign placement, image collecting, heck even real estate copy writing? When you live in a market where stagers are not hired for the make it look pretty for the date with the real estate buyer online wolf whistling at what he or she sees. In small rural real estate markets, the practical stuff is what is ooh la la. Low to the ground the ground price, new roo...

Real estate video myth number one. The thinking only luxury property listings deserve video treatment for the show and tell. Nothing could be further from the truth using real estate video for marketing what you list and need to sell. So where did that real estate video myth come from? Well, if you are used to hiring out most of your real estate photo, video, heck even property listing sign planting and retrieval. Then only your most expensive property listings can justify the expense of lights, camera, action to produce a real full motion property listing video. Or the myth that only your most expensive real estate listings deserve the video treatment could be that's the majority of what you see shot, edited, rendered and posted online. So why would someone hire out the video for a 196...

Moosestompers Weekend, Houlton ME celebrates winter. What is Moosestompers? Sounds like something the animal abuse folks would get up in arms about right? No, Moosestompers Weekend happens every year the first weekend in February. It started up at Loring Air Force Base in Limestone.The B-52 SAC air base is gone but the commmander of the moth balled Loring AFB Alan Bean ended up becoming our Houlton ME town manager. Bean brought the idea of "the moose is loose" with him to revive the even in Southern Aroostook County to continue the  winter.The whole idea of Moosestompers Weekend is family fun, a chance to get out and enjoy new fresh white snow with clean air outdoor fun. We celebrate, not dread winter. Headig outside, getting off the couch and socializing with friends and neighbors. Kid...

Real estate video is so easy to tag team, do the tie in to companion blog posts on say jobs, FAQ topics.Video is not just for property listings and hang it up after the real estate show and tell. No no, video for the local community flavor is key to locating buyers who if like what they see and hear about your area, they'll buy.Video for explaining the process of buying and selling property listings never goes out of style. Toggle, hit the video link and sit back, watch and listen. It's easy for the guy and gal out in the real estate audience.The videos get re-wound, re-watched just like you and I do when a movie interests us. Each time the video gets another view, more is learned. Lots  that might have been missed the first pass through whatever is shot, rendered, uploaded to the real ...

Some real estate markets are even hotter during the coronovirus pandemic. It's not all doom and gloom. Everything did not come to a screeching halt in many small rural real estate markets like some areas for business activity. Some things never change in real estate and the importance of listing inventory is one of those areas. Listings are king and inventory priced realistically and in healthy supply across all the price ranges is the ammunition in any real estate market. Low cost homes for sale in Maine never ever go out of style. In tough times, those are the ones people search out for in even more. Like this home for under $15,000 real estate example. When a coronovirus pandemic or a recession enter the real estate market, how that market behaves will shift however.During the "let t...

In rural Maine, the adjustment listing selling real estate working around coronovirus is easier. Less people, fewer problems is a big part of it.Being almost in Canada another benefit and away from the hot spots for the COVID 19. The past history of dealing with challenging winters and relying on our local economy warming up or cooling off depending on what happens out of state. We get used to simple living that is the most rewarding. The day to day is practical, common sense loaded and flying by the seat of your pants happens less. Maine people in small towns are down to Earth and have their heads screwed on straight.Maine. More hands on and self reliant small town living.Locals and vacationers definitely blessed with the ability to be outdoors all four season. To dig in and enjoy bein...

Real estate myths. Like ring around the collar, those dirty myths. You try scrubbing them out when they come up in listing presentations sitting around the kitchen table. Soaking them out to remove them from conversations during real estate showings. Buyers and sellers, even agents and brokers start to believe them. Because they linger and circulate round and round despite your best efforts to get rid of those ugly familiar rings of real estate myths. Like an obnoxious parrot watching you, taunting you."Enough with the real estate myths already!" you scream.But good luck putting your head in the sand or covering your eyes. Everyone you meet on the street, the talking heads on the news channels and talk show circuit keep them going. They all let one roll off their tongues oh oh so easily...

Small town real estate markets operate a little differently when your location is in rural Maine. Things operate a little differently. When the national news talking head rip and reads the headlines, often when the topic is centered on real estate, the information does not quite apply to a small rural Maine town market.Get out the map. Maine is a big state and located quite a hike up in he left hand upper corner of the country. That is part of it. And even within this nine hour plus tall state, what applies in one real estate market location does not represent the same stats in another of the sixteen counties either.For example, an average house price of say $71,000 in my home town of Houlton ME if you jacked it up, rolled it down I-95 to the Portland area. And then easy does it boys......

The slice and dice A-Z on property listings, real estate buyers need  way more than room count and their sizes.The features and condition of what is for sale is critical and must be delivered quick and easy. It better be complete and more than what other portals provide. But besides the details on the sticks and bricks, what else is just as important? If water is connected, the whole nine yards about a big crystal clean Maine lake could be the first order of business when promoting property. The lifestyle of fishing, being out on the water in a boat propeled by paddles or a motor hanging off the back or harnessing the wind summer breeze. Details surrounding the property are pretty critical information to uncover and expose for the real estate buyer looking for Maine property. But jobs. ...

The home for sale is in tip top shape and the personal property arranged just so in all the rooms.The home buyer likes what he sees and we're not talking just the room sizes, the house features and location. The furnishings, the outdoor patio items, the toys in the garage all add to the sizzle of the real estate sale. But personal property, what stays, what goes, what do each party expect in the real estate sale?Are there laws in your state that say a cook stove has to be left in the sale of a house?Do the buyer and seller you are working with on a real estate sale know the difference between what's a fixture, what's personal property?How to handle the personal property scattered around the listing for sale?The stuff from Wally World, the family heirlooms, the trash or treasure appointm...

Ten pm, not the same time slot in the morning but the one late at night, the you tube real estate channel is open for business.And the show and tell is at a peak we find from study of the analytics. How come? People are busy, have little extra time in overbooked living. The kids are finally in bed, the real estate buyers before shutting off the nightstand lamp open up the lap top and tap tap, lean back into the pillow to watch, listen.The transfer of information from the open house on demand feature that real estate video can supply.No plane tickets, motels, tolls, rent a cars for the out of state buyer traveling up long highways to look at just a few new listings as they trickle into the real estate property feed one at a time. Easy peasy for the local buyer to see and hear about anyth...

The dinosaur stone age dog and pony delayed way to market real estate.It used to be plant a sign in the lawn of a new home listing for sale. Whip together something about be happy here, hurry, nice yard, nice house, location location location. There... that's enough to tease and draw them in like flies. Okay, maybe a newspaper ad or two. Then wait for it, the real estate sale. That's all there was. Everyone does it this way. It used to be read read all about the new listing sprinkled with a few images, no video and with a pretty skimpy description tacked on for good measure. For the biggest investment or sale most of us ever find ourselves involved in in life. Many of the write ups and image arrays looking pretty much like the last listing, the next one too that the property buyer studi...
