Helpful Tips For Making Your Virtual Viewing Video

Story posted: 23.04.20

Virtual Video Image

Thinking of selling your home, now could be the  perfect time to do this. To make sure you are in the strongest position when the market returns to normal, we strongly recommend creating a video tour for your property. We will come and film your home as soon as the restrictions are relaxed but with modern smartphone technology it is easy to produce on your own.  

Please take a look at this YouTube clip along with the helpful tips and hints below:

  • Make sure the property is neat and tidy
  • When recording, ensure it is in landscape mode, keeping the camera straight
  • Always have the camera at eye level
  • Lights on, windows closed & open all doors before you begin shooting so that you can walk through undisturbed and keep the camera steady
  • If a house or the property has its own private entrance then start the recording from the outside and walk inside and if it’s a block or converted house, please start the video from inside the property
  • All videos should include, if possible, at least, main reception rooms, kitchen, master bedroom and any outside space
  • Don't forget to film any special features, perhaps an ornate fireplace - to showcase a particular room  
  • Only include the bathroom if there is enough space and you won’t see yourself in the mirror! Also make sure the toilet seat is down and the shower curtain pulled back
  • A video of all the rooms is not essential, pick the best room
  • Do videos during the brightest time of the day
  • Make sure all blinds/curtains are open before recording 
  • No voice over is required, we will do this over the phone with the viewer, so please record in silent mode

Once you've confidently filmed your property, simply send your file across to us and we will professionally edit the video for you. 

Your video will then feature within your property listing on our website and also accessible on the property portals, continuing to generating new buyer interest. Just to add, we've already agreed 4 Lets via virtual viewings, something we've never once done in the previous 30 years! 

There is a definite appetite for this - not only now, but moving forward when returning to 'normality'.
