We started by first signing up about 250 professional videographers across the country. Next, we plan to start promoting the site to real estate agents as a way for them to meet local filmmakers and produce property videos for their listings. Right now, the market is filled with videos that just present the photos via an automated app like Animoto or just a slideshow of pictures. We feel like a crowdsourcing site for professional video production is necessary and the consumer would prefer this type of higher quality content.
We also thought it was needed to aggregate all real estate videos on one site so the consumer has a portal to watch & search. Today, most real estate videos just end up on YouTube where its harder to search for stuff like price, #br, #baths & contact agents.
Our site is designed so that both the filmmaker and real estate agent (and/or builder) are tagged in the video and both have profiles where you can contact either one. We hope to take advantage of the exploding online video market and popularity of consumer real estate sites like Zillow & Trulia...aka a real estate porn site.
We are also looking for videographers in the Philadelphia region. We are reaching out to realtors in our hometown and we need videographers who have steadicams and can do aerial drone work!
