How Real Estate Videos Can Help Your Real Estate Business

  1. Generate leads: The data speaks for itself – clients are most interested in real estate videos compared to text or photos. Marketing your videos on the right platforms is bound to lead to increased views and naturally, more potential clients.

    Videos have the power to speed up decision-making by immersing viewers in the property, showing its unique features, and evoking the feeling of living there. When viewers develop an intense emotional connection to a property through video, they are more likely to take action, whether it’s scheduling a showing, submitting an offer, or reaching out to you for more information.

  2. Book more meetings: NAR research shows that 77% of ended up choosing to work with the first real estate agent that they speak with. With a strong video presence, you are more likely to be recommended and prevalent in the real estate field than agents with a weak online presence.
  3. Create a personal connection: Unsurprisingly, the most clients searching for properties online are millenials are younger. This audience expects clear communication, honesty, and clarity from the businesses they work with. Videos that showcase your personality, life, and business craft a personal connection that will make clients see you as more trustworthy.
  4. Bring properties to life: Video marketing allows for a level of immersion that a photo could never allow. You can create a wide range of videos that showcase your listings, as well as the surrounding area in depth. With video you can show off the modernity of a luxury property, highlight the warm ambiance of a cottage, or the stunning views of a new apartment building.
  5. Explain things clearly: Youtube is a testamanet to the fact that video is one of the best ways to give clear and specific explanations about nearly everything, including real estate processes and properties. No walls of text or step by step photos are needed. Simply add text to a video and users can pause it if they need a closer look or a moment to think.
  6. Higher Engagement:

    Videos encourage much more user engagement than any other medium. Viewers are more likley to like, comment, or share a video than they are a blog, photo, inforgraphic etc. Sharing is especially important as it is the digital version of “word of mouth”.

Where to Post

Your Website

Pull viewers into your website with some targeted and well-placed real estate videos. Afterall, your website is your homebase online, so drawing viewers here will make it more likely for them to contact you, see past successful sales, look at current listings, and read your other marketing content.

Email Lists and Newsletters

Did you know that emails that contain videos are 3 times as likely to be clicked than emails without videos? Email marketing is still one of the more efficient ways to attract new clients and continue to strengthen relationships with current clients.


It’s easy to forget that Youtube is actually a search engine – the second most popular search engine, in fact. If you are able to provide valuable Youtube content that people are actively looking for, you can quickly position yourself as a leading voice in the market and in your hyperlocal area. Make sure that you promote your other social media networks to draw clients there as well.


The beautiful thing about TikTok videos is that they don’t necessarily stay on TikTok. TikToks are very shareable and easy to repost on nearly every other major social media network including Youtube Shorts, Instagram, and Facebook video. The quick, flashy format is a great way to condense information into a short video and provide as much value to the viewer in the least amount of time.


Real estate is a business that relies heavily on appearance and feel. The video and image focus on Instagram is a great opportunity to draw viewers and keep them engaged with aspirational video content. Next to Facebook, Instagram is the most popular social media network and the best place to reach people between their early 20s and 40s.


To this day, Facebook is the most used social media platform and has one of the most developed and effective video ad campaign structures. It’s best to mix up the many ways that you can engage with Facebook videos: Lives, ads, and posts. Just make sure that your videos suit your target audience and take advantage of the demographic and analytic options, especially with Facebook ads.
