You and I are kindred spirits of a sort! I agree wholeheartedly with your comments. There is a company that does great work with shots and virtual tours; I'll bet you've heard of them, or seen their work: VHT.
I only mention them because so many pictures out there are dark and even some of the virtual tours are just a compilation of the same dark pictures.
Bright, crisp, and clear is the best way -- or what ever medium you choose to present will still fall short.
Keep those great answers coming!
I think video or tours need to be a part of the property description page, not a destination unto their own. Buyers know what geography and price range are of interest, and want to learn about any property that meets their criteria.
I visited the web-site you referenced. I wasn't immediately "wow'd" by the presentation examples. There are quite a few video sources that agents/brokers use. Nothing should be discounted. However, based on price, viewership (membership) - every dollar spent should be wise.
At this time, I would have to say that this resource would be too limited in my market. I will however, keep an eye on it to see if it stands the test of time.
Thanks so much!
