The rise of web video
Web video is increasingly popular with web users, with an average of 200 billion video views per month now and rising. As consumers have more video experiences, novices publishing shaky cell phone camera videos are becoming less and less acceptable as higher quality video is now more prevalent.
“Prospective home-buyers crave engaging and impactful content that will help them see, feel and decide where they want to live,” notes Rudy Bachraty, Chief Educator at WellcomeMat. “Video delivers that experience like no other. It’s exciting to see a firm like William Pitt Sotheby’s International Realty along with partner firms Julia B. Fee Sotheby’s International Realty and Litchfield Hills Sotheby’s International Realty execute a strategic long-term video plan to serve their markets.”

Notes Vin Socci, “As the focus continues to shift toward the use of video content in real estate, our partnership with WellcomeMat puts us on the leading edge of this trending advance in the industry.”
