Joel at Future of Real Estate Marketing had a post about the Flip Video camera, a device which coincidently I’ve been trying to figure out how to use. I was sent one by FrontDoor and invited to make real estate videos for their blog FrontDoor: Unlocked. They’ve been assembling a group of 10 or so real estate bloggers to create videos for the website and they’re calling it the FrontDoor Blogger’s Council. Joseph Ferrara had a little post about it today and published a short list of members.
Each new member received one of the Flip Video camera’s with a directive to go out and create an introduction. Thankfully, mine is not up yet, and hopefully will never see the light of day.
I did use it to create a video montage of a Seattle Home Lounge & Bar Tour though, but there’s room for improvement. It’s a lot harder than I thought it was going to be, but I managed to add a soundtrack. It’s the editing that’s tricky. Plus, the quality isn’t quite as good as I had hoped. Or it could be operator-error…..
FrontDoor just announced today that they inked a deal with Terabitz. The deal centers on two Terabitz components: a beta version of the companyâ€™s iPhone home search application and Neighborhood Explorer, which delivers rich local data in an elegant map interface. Frontdoorâ€™s new iPhone application, which can be accessed at m.frontdoor.com, enables users to search for homes based on several criteria. The Terabitz Neighborhood Explorer allows FrontDoorâ€™s iphone users to view a wide array services and amenities around any given home listing. Schools, places of worship, restaurants, banks, ATM machines, coffee houses, grocery stores and much more can be displayed with one click.
