Levi and I haven't sold a property of our own since 2006 but this weekend we are putting our furnished rental in Snoqualmie, WA on the market. Putting this property on the market gives me a chance to "eat my own dog food" in the process of marketing the property. We've spent the last week getting the place ready to put on the market. When the home you are marketing is your own, this stuff takes on a whole new meaning.
Last Monday I hired Malia Campbell to come out an shoot a cinematic video for me and we will probably get a look at the video this coming monday or so. She came out to shoot for me despite still being jet lagged from returning from Spain and having a bad cold she picked up on the way back from Europe. Thanks Malia!
I compiled the stills from shots I've done over the years. I'm using a pfretour.com tour with a custom URL as a property site. The primary reason I'm using a pfretour.com tour is that I can embed Malia's video on the video page and have stills and video one site without building a custom site. The video that's on the site now is just a very old series of stills made into a video. Malia's video will replace this soon. I'll also be putting links to neighborhood videos on the site and more stills. There are a bunch of thing's I don't like about pfretour.com tours. I really would like to have the video on the first page instead of the stills and the have the placement of the embedded video on the page closer to the top of the page but I know of no other tour hosting that even allows stills, video, maps etc. on the same tour. Michael and Alfie (the pfretour.com developers) have promised to fix these these thing but don't know if it will happen in time for my home sale.
In the process of studying the market in this neighborhood we've made some interesting observations:
