As a result of the high demand for “video walk-thru” services, which have resulted from the COVID-19 pandemic, we are now offering this service to real estate agents. The primary objective of creating a walk-through video for a property listing is to provide a prospective buyer and their agent with a “real-life” experience walking through a property while limiting the need for the buyers, the buyer’s agent, as well as the seller’s agent to physically visit the property.
Our standard stand alone flat rate for this service is $125, which includes the site visit and video shoot, as well the time required for basic post editing in our studio. Depending on the size of the property and any other unique needs, property attributes or circumstances, there may be additional charges for this service as well. A discounted rate is available if this service is requested along with any of our standard photo packages. Listing agents should inquire for an exact price quote for their upcoming listing.
We will prerecord the walk-thru video of the entire property, including the interior and exterior, on behalf of the listing agent and the seller. We will record segments of each floor and other sections of the property, and then splice them all together into a single video file. The video will not contain any narration or audio.
The final video, which will typically run between 2 and 5 minutes in length, can then be shared live on Zoom calls or by utilizing other delivery methods desired by the listing agent. The video can be narrated live by the listing agent and multiple parties can participate on the video call, including the buyer’s agent and the buyer’s family. Alternatively, with basic video editing software the listing agent can add audio narration and/or music for other marketing and distribution purposes.
We will also provide basic support and guidance to real estate agents who are new to some of the broadcast and distribution techniques described above. Listings agents should contact us for more information.
It should be noted that Jeffrey Wirz Photography has officially been approved by the State of Connecticut DECD as an “essential” business and vendor for the real estate community. This means we have been authorized to provide photography services as long as we adhere to strict guidelines provided by the state to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
When hired for photography and video shoots we always take all of the necessary precautions, including wearing a face mask and rubber gloves, which are then properly discarded following each session. For vacant properties we have Supra eKey access as long as property has an installed lockbox, otherwise we will coordinate a key transfer. If the property is occupied, in most cases we can work together to coordinate an appropriate safety plan with the occupants so we can all adhere to distancing guidelines and to minimize any potential exposure.
