Here’s a great place to get some good background music for your videos: https://audiojungle.net/?ref=retipster
Here are some of the on-screen elements I used in conjunction with Final Cut Pro X: https://videohive.net/item/60-titles-pack/14050399?_ga=2.141603314.1173998920.1495046384-1680727178.1495045950&ref=retipster
This entire video was shot on the DJI Mavic Pro: http://retipster.com/mavic
Whether you’re selling homes, commercial buildings or vacant land – chances are, your real estate listings could benefit GREATLY from the integration of a well-made video.
If you’re a drone enthusiast like me and you’ve gone through the trouble of getting your commercial license, this could be a great way to shoot and compile some incredible footage of your property.
With this type of video – all of your shots can be taken from the air. I’ve found that this type of video works particularly well with vacant land, because literally every aspect of the property can been seen from the air (i.e. – there are no “indoor shots” like with a building). For this reason, I think drone videos are a particularly good fit for vacant land when the numbers make sense.
There are a handful of standard shots I think every good drone video needs. Once you’ve got those shots recorded, it’s just a matter of compiling them together with some nice background music and descriptive word overlays.
The video above shows an example of what this could look like.
Keep in mind, if you don’t own a drone, if you’re not commercially licensed, if you can’t travel to the property yourself or if you just don’t have the time to shoot all this footage yourself, be sure to check out droners.io at: http://retipster.com/droners – where you can post jobs and hire drone pilots all over the country.
It goes without saying – these kinds of videos will require more time and effort (if you’re planning to shoot and edit all the footage yourself) or money (if you’re planning to hire someone to visit the property and get the footage for you).
I probably wouldn’t bother with this type of marketing effort until the market value starts to exceed $20,000 and/or I stand to make $15K or more from the deal.
When I’m doing all of this work myself, depending on travel time, it can take me a full day to get everything pulled together, shot end edited. When I’m hiring out all the work, I could spend anywhere from $500 – $1,500 when all is said and done… so I generally wouldn’t go down this road until you know there’s a huge potential payout waiting for you on the other side.
