Want to create beautiful real estate videos but don’t have the budget? Fret not, we’ve compiled a list of the best real estate video apps of 2017 to help you out.
You can create slideshow and property listing videos to generate more enquiries, customer testimonial videos to attract more clients and marketing videos to increase your brand awareness. Let’s dive right in!
Videoshop is one of the best real estate video apps on the market. Packed full features, you can quickly trim and merge clips together, add music, sound effects, text and voiceovers as well as apply transitions and filters to personalise your videos. Add photos from your camera roll to create a slideshow or stop motion video and easily share your creation straight from the app.
You can also adjust video speed to highlight the unique features of a property. For example, you can slow down the video to accentuate the marble countertops or speed up the video to showcase a stunning sunset from the balcony.
Boasting over 700 million monthly active users, Instagram is a social app that allows you to capture, edit and share photos and videos with the community. Your videos can be between 3 to 60 seconds long and you can tag locations, add real estate hashtags to increase visibility and even share them to other popular social networks like Facebook at the same time.
There’s also a built-in Stories feature that allows you to post 24-hour disappearing content. Meanwhile, Instagram Live allows you to connect with your followers in the moment. These features are great for behind-the-scenes footage of you preparing for a showing or participating in community events.
3. Hyperlapse (iOS only)
Love time lapse videos but don’t have the equipment for it?
Hyperlapse allows users to easily create polished time lapse videos without the need for bulky cameras or tripods. Simply lean your smartphone against something stable and press record to capture a before and after renovation video or showcase how a property transforms between sunset and dusk.
Additionally, you can shoot handheld time lapse videos while you’re walking or running thanks to the app’s automatic stabilisation. Try your hand at creating first-person time lapse videos to provide a different perspective and set yourself apart from other agents.
4. YouTube Director (iOS only)
Another great real estate video app is YouTube Director. The app streamlines video ad production with over 130 templates, step-by-step instructions and the ability to add custom text animations, voiceovers and music. This means that even if you have no video editing experience, you can still create high-quality video ads in less than an hour. You can then upload the finished videos directly to YouTube.
With YouTube Director’s extensive library of music and templates, the possibilities are endless! Not only can you create customer testimonial and property listing videos but you can also create striking marketing videos to tell your brand story and showcase your brand personality.
Youtube Director is currently only available on iOS.
If you want to create eye-catching animated videos for social media, Ripl is your best bet. The app lets you customise post designs, create collage and slideshow videos, share your videos to social media in seconds and track weekly engagement. What’s more, the Smart Post Recommendations feature provides daily inspiration for what to post next if you’re stuck for ideas.
As a real estate agent, you can use Ripl to create property listing videos, video ads, collage videos of community events and did-you-know and how-to videos.
While Ripl is free, the Pro subscription unlocks additional features such as post scheduling, pro design catalog, pro font and music library and the ability to export your videos for use elsewhere.
Boomerang is another app by Instagram that makes creating social media videos fun and easy. Simply find someone or something that’s moving then tap the button to capture a burst of ten photos. The photos are then automatically stitched together to create a mini video that loops back and forth. It’s that easy!
With Boomerang, you can draw attention to desirable features like large windows with gorgeous sunlight, stainless steel amenities or an outdoor pool by creating a little movement. You can also capture the lifestyle of a neighbourhood by creating Boomerang videos of nearby cafes, parks, bars and shops.
