How Real Estate Videography/Cinematography Helps to Sell Your Home Fast

Ryan Debler


The city of Edmonton is built around a beautiful river valley with extensive trail systems and elevation. Located in the Canadian Prairies, Edmonton is Alberta's capital and the largest northernmost metropolis in Canada. It’s filled with luxury and opportunities for adventure. Just an easy drive from the world-famous Banff National Park, the lifestyle in Edmonton is filled with hiking, biking, climbing, and other outdoor pursuits.

Edmonton is also known as the festival city of Canada. Residents in Edmonton always find a reason to celebrate, and the city is filled with cultural and artistic events, from live music and concerts to international film festivals, fall celebrations, and winter extravaganzas. Edmonton is filled with delicious opportunities for dining, with a hopping restaurant scene featuring some of the best chefs in the world.

If you want to make a move in Edmonton, you might need to sell your current home. To that end, videography and real estate cinematography are among the best strategies you can use. With the average person spending nearly 20 hours per week watching videos, these tools are some of the most effective methods to sell your home fast.

Communicate your value

A significant advantage of using real estate videography is the ability to communicate the genuine value of your property. Professional photographs are a great way to entice buyers, but as our technology advances and is more readily available, buyers are looking for more. They want to experience your home for themselves, and the best way to show off the amenities and assets of your home is through video. Video can display the flow and space of the house in ways images simply cannot. There’s a reason that many platforms are trending away from photographs and moving towards video clips. Video better communicates your message and engages users in a way that activates their senses and transports them to another place.

Real estate cinematography also helps give buyers the most accurate view of your property. Video is the best way to showcase a property's space and amenities. So many times, pictures don’t accurately capture the space available at a property, and buyers are not satisfied when they see the property in person. Using videography eliminates this pitfall and clearly shows the area in a home in real-time. This also helps attract the right buyers to your showings, as people will have an accurate idea of what is on offer at your property before even seeing it in person.

Demonstrate luxury

Videography helps communicate the luxury and opulence of your property. By using videography, you are showing buyers both the gorgeous reality of your property and providing a high-end service: allowing them to tour the property in the comfort of their own homes. And when prospective buyers witness your home as if in person, they tend to want to visit it for showings with the intent of putting in a competitive offer.

Videos are much more engaging than simple photographs and written descriptions. Videography is creative and allows you to engage your viewers with multiple senses. With videography, you can create a sensory experience showcasing your home to potential buyers. You can communicate your home's size, space, and feel in three dimensions.

Videography isn’t limited to your home listing. You can use it to send messages to potential buyers, answer buyer questions and create content to help buyers better understand the home and its value. For example, videography can also be used to do neighborhood tours and highlight the area where your home is located. This is a huge help to buyers that may not be familiar with the area and want to understand the community surrounding your home.

Build trust

To sell your home fast, you need to showcase a beautiful luxury home and quickly build a relationship with the buyers. Videography helps speed this process along. When buyers see a video tour of your home, they are more confident of its condition and salient features. Because video more closely resembles an in-person showing, the medium is perceived as more accurate and honest than photography.

Push deals forward

Having videography of your listing helps move deals forward faster. Videography provides more information to buyers than simple listings with photographs and text. This helps to resolve any questions or issues about the property more quickly, allowing buyers to decide faster about whether to put down an offer. The National Association of Realtors (NAR) recently found that property listings with video received a 403% increase in inquiries compared to property listings without video.
