Real estate video marketing.Think customer. First and foremost your property listing buyer. Serve them up what's hot out of the oven. Make the video personable and add emotion, a little humor. But let them know "I get it,  you are busy.. here is the nitty gritty, what you get with this property listing."When a new house comes on the market, what would be easier than a tap tap, sit back and watch, listen, tour the property listing?Video does that.Out of town real estate buyers would quickly decide is this worth the tolls, motels, eats and travel time to do the actual walk through personally? They could move ahead on the real estate chutes and ladders game. IF there was a listing video to sample one after another of your homes for sale.And think seller. Getting more people in and out of t...

Why people buy land in Maine? The need to own land is as old as dirt itself. No really. The ground under your feet, some acreage to grow food to feed your family. To sell the excess for others not farming to put meals on the table. No farmer, no food is a sobering statement to graze on and digest. By the land in Maine for the remote off grid woods camp up in the Great North woods.Ever thought of buying Maine land to just get away from people and closer to wildlife? Hunting, fishing, snowmobiling and ATV four wheeling recreation is fun and so easy because Maine has one incredible trail system. Here's a new land listing in Maine video. Why else besides hobby farming or planting seeds or tending pasture field fences to keep the livestock in would you need land in Maine?For the lifestyle, l...
