I have mixed feelings about these. While I can appreciate that this two person walk-through is casual, informal and has a natural feel, but I’m not a fan of the fast erratic head movements throughout both of these. Probably takes some practice. I assume that there’s a glass App that combines video from two glasses into one video stream. What’s clear is that there will be agents all over this as Google glass becomes generally available and cheaper. If they do it with SmartPhones they will do it with Google glass!
Apparently Google glasses will be available later in 2014 for less than the $1500 beta testing/lottery access that you can get now. So look out as the price comes down agents will be all over this. Thanks to Chris Wood in the UK for the links.
2- Create and sell lifestyle video to agents in your area. Mat Van Emmerik in BC passed along his latest idea that he recently implemented. Matt says:
As I told you at the beginning of last year I was starting to implement lifestyle at a higher level into my real estate videos. I took things to the next level and spent all summer archiving video of the entire Kelowna and West Kelowna area and produced 14 lifestyle videos. I will now start marketing these videos to every Realtor at a subscription price annually. This way I won’t get a lot of cash from each client, but overall I should get a lot of clients! I’m giving you two examples of the 14 videos in the area. (here and here) I took each of these areas from google maps and also well known specific areas that are targeted by realtors. This is I think an incredible tool to have on your website if you’re a realtor as people really want to see where they are going to be living or this could help them choose ultimately where they want to live. I thought the other PFRE readers might like to implement something similar in the area they live to give them an edge on the competition and generate another revenue stream that continues to flow in. It is a LOT of work to get this done, but once it’s done, it’s done!
Sounds like a good idea and it should work most places where video is popular with agents.
