We saw your house on the computer
The Oklahoman's Richard Mize has a story this morning on something I probably should have anticipated, but didn't: Real-estate listings on YouTube.
And it's not like no one's been doing video of homes for sale Cox Cable has a whole channel of such but what's the first place you look for video? Yep.
Still, I don't think a lot of buyers, at least at first, are going to use YouTube as their first search tool. Doesn't mean it won't work, though: last time (and I emphasize last time) I bought a house, the Expert I had engaged emailed me links to MLS listings that looked promising, and adding YouTube links to such mailings is a simple matter of cut-and-paste.
Here's a sampling of YouTubed listings, which you may find interesting:
These run generally three to four minutes, though the Edmond listing runs about nine.Posted at 10:59 AM to Entirely Too Cool
