6 tools to work with while promoting your house using a video

Many landlords underestimate the power of a video. If you are looking for tenants, a perfect presentation of your house is key. How do you create such a video? There are of course many, many options. Be creative. Here are some tools I use to make a video.

Many landlords underestimate the power of a video. If you are looking for tenants, a perfect presentation of your house is key. How do you create such a video? There are of course many, many options. Be creative. Here are some tools I use to make a video.

1. Picmonkey. PicMonkey

One of the first things you´ll do is take some photos of your home. These photos most likely could be improved to make them show the best of the house. One of the tools that I use to edit photos is Picmonkey. It´s a free tool with several basic options for editing your photos. If you get really hooked (like me) on editing photos or creating your own images, you can also buy the more extensive package. It´s actually not that expensive.

2. Pond5.

I believe in the power of music in a video. It is not easy to find music for a video, it may take some time before you find something that really fits your video. My last purchase was at Pond5, where as well as music, you can also find introduction sounds to introduce your video.

3. ScreenFlow.

There are of course many video editing tools available. ScreenFlow is my favorite as it is so easy to learn to use. You can insert your pictures, presentation or video and edit it. After that you export your video so that you have an mp4 file.

4. Prezi.

An idea you can use is to make a presentation of your house using Prezi. What I really like is that you can see the overview, zoom in and out to several pictures, all in a creative environment. I really recommend Prezi.

5. A microphone.

If you want to add some explanations to your video you can record your voice on Screenflow or on your mobile phone. I use this microphone, in order to avoid background noises.

6. Wistia.

My favourite video host at the moment is Wistia. I prefer Wistia to YouTube as YouTube shows commercials after your video which I don´t like. The quality of the video is better at Wistia.

Good luck creating your video! Would you like to send me the result of your video to review and provide feedback? I look forward to hearing from you.

P.S. Please note that some links are affiliate links for which I will receive a small commission if you make a purchase. Don´t worry, this does not affect the price of the products.
