Q: How long are the finished videos?

A: Our video tours vary in length from 3-7 minutes depending on the size of the property and requested details

Q: How long does it take to shoot a video of the property and or photograph it?

A: Generally doing a runthrough of the property takes about an hour to hour and a half for a full video and photoshoot.

Q: After the shoot, how long will it take before I can see the pictures and be able to use my video?

A: We try to have your photos and videos available the next day if possible. This of course depends on work load and editing time.

Q: So how long does it take you to make one of these videos anyways?

A:Normally a full hd home tour of a 2,000sqft. house will take around 1 hour to shoot and 3-4 hours to edit. High definition video consists with very large file sizes so the compression, rendering and upload times are often substantial. You will however never be billed for something that "took longer than I thought". All prices are agreed upon upfront so there are never any surprises!

Q: After completion, can I get a copy of my video so I can upload it to other sites?

A: Absolutely! All of our videos are given to you via YouTube which can be shared to your facebook or other sites. In fact we strongly encourage you to do this for better exposure! The best means of sharing your video is using the provided embed code from YouTube. We will provide you with this once your video is uploaded.

Q: Where will I be able to view my video? What sites can Iupload it to?

A: For the most part, we believe that YouTube® is far and away the best means of getting your video the most exposure possible. But a little more never hurts right? We encourage you to share your video on your personal social media sites as well. Videos can also be uploaded to Realtor.com® and your local MLS system if you hold the proper agent account for it.

Q: Is this really worth it? It costs more than a standard virtual tour.

A: Absolutely. Because it's different, eye catching and something your viewers will remember. I've been apart of the house hunting game before too, and after a while they all start to blend together. This is something that they WILL NOT FORGET!

As far as quality goes, we use extremely high quality DSLR cameras to shoot and capture each scene and photo. In fact, the lens we use costs as much as the camera itself! Typical virtual tours are nothing more than some photos that have been uploaded into a program that zooms in and out to give the illusion of depth. Our videos are real. Live. True to life. They make you feel like you've been there, even if you havent! THAT is what buyers (and sellers) want to see!

Q: If I just want a normal virtual tour, can you do that?

A: Sure we can! While we don't believe it to be nearly as effective as full motion video, we understand that sometimes budget rules. We are happy to create a photo slideshow tour for you(uploaded to YouTube® as the hd tours are). We can use photos that you provide, or come take photos of your property using our TrueVue high defintion photography for use with your tour.
