On Tuesday I mentioned some of the more than 2 dozen sites where you can find your home when you list with me. And I mentioned that you can also find your home on the nation’s second largest search engine- and that is YouTube!
Here is an exampleof one of my recent listings on YouTube. Now you might wonder why YouTube and here are a few reasons why:
1) YouTube is the second largest search engine: this means that after Google people go to YouTube to find answers and help. If you don’t have a video presence, you just cut yourself out of the world’s second largest search engine.
2) 50% of YouTube users make more than $50k per year: Half of YouTube users make enough money to afford a decent home in most markets. Combine this with number one above and these users are going to turn to YouTube to search for their next home.
3) 64% of YouTube users are between 25 and 64 years of age: More than half of YouTube’s users fall into the most active home buying demographics. From first time home buyers all the way up to empty nesters looking to sell their current home and downsize.
Bonus – An autoshared tweet will result in 6 new YouTube sessions: YouTube has a nice “autoshare” feature that will automatically push your video links to Twitter and Facebook. Each of these autoshared tweets results in 6 new YouTube sessions. Meaning that there is an opportunity to get your video message in front of more people.
To me it is a no-brainer. Just another way that I go above and beyond to get your house in front of as many potential buyers as possible.
