“YouTube” Marketing Your Historic Listing – NJ

youtubelogoyoutubelogoVirtual tours have become an almost ubiquitous feature in real estate ads online, but very few agents or sellers showcase their properties on YouTube, the video sharing website used by millions of people worldwide.  The possibilities are practically unlimited, but some of the most common videos to market your historic or antique property include simply sharing your “virtual tour” as a video; or perhaps even better, a “walking tour” with a video that allows buyers to “experience” the flow and dimensions of the property.  Or you can be more creative, conducting “interviews with the homeowners (or local historians/historic district members) about the home’s unique history or architecture; or a photo slideshow of an extensive restoration.  Here is an example of a simple “virtual tour” type presentation on YouTube, featuring the historic “Franklin Inn” in Port Republic, New Jersey.  If you’d like more info on this listing, it is also featured on Historic Homes Marketplace .

Visiting and doing a quick search for “historic home for sale” or “antique house real estate” (or other similar search strings) will reveal quite a few videos from agents who are incorporating this strategy already.

    Thanks for your comment on my post at Plainfield Today on the two ‘historic’ properties in danger here.

    Am waiting for an update on status of the Lampkin House, about which you raise all the issues that are likely to be decisive. Maybe someone with deep pockets will move it…

    As for the Volcker house, I fear that it is in foreclosure and may be a short sale. Another ironic twist for these times. We’ll see whether Volcker will be able to double his trick from his previous life in Washington. This time, I’m afraid is going to be much harder.

    Really enjoy your focus on historic properties! Keep up the good work!

    him as nobody else know such detailed about my problem.

    You are incredible! Thanks!
