Okay, so yesterday we dropped a little bit of a bombshell, and honestly, the response was overwhelming. So I'd like to take a minute and explain our latest service, video marketing, and how it can help you out.
What is it? Well, put simply, it's a video we make for you to use to help sell your current house. We will come to your house that you are currently or preemptively planning to sell, shoot high quality professional grade video of your home, have it professionally edited and produced, and provide that video to you so you can market your house.
Why do I want it? Honestly, why don't you want it? Video is the simplest way to show someone exactly what they are potentially going to buy. No, this video is not like the ones you see on reality websites where they just zoom in and out of pictures. This is high quality, 1080p HD video of your home. Show everyone why your home is worth buying! Each video is anywhere from 1 - 2 minutes in duration, and will showcase the best features of your house to the market.
What's the catch? Does there have to be a catch? This is a service that Vermont Modular Homes is providing to the community to be a socially responsible company, and provide a tool to help in the housing market. If you stand out among hundreds of others, that attention will lead to a sale quicker, and closer to your asking price. If you are just showing a few pictures, it will just blend in with the crowd, and get lost. Your house deserves way more than just a few pictures. But, since we are doing the video, professional photographs will also be provided. We are packaging the video with 12 professional photographs which you can use in your marketing and promotion of your house sale.
What does this all cost? Originally we were thinking of providing this service, including the video and photographs, for a flat fee of $500. But since this is a pilot service, we are cutting the price in half.
How and when do I pay for this? There is a brief contract which outlines the rights you have for the video, and an agreement to make a 50% non-refundable deposit when we show up at your house to perform this service. You are under no obligation to accept the final video, and are afforded a reasonable amount of edit requests. We want to make sure you are happy with the end result. After all, it's your video, it needs to make you happy. Once you're happy with the finished result, the second half is due, and you now own the video.
Do I own the video? Yes, you will assume all rights once the video is paid for. The only exception is we reserve the right to display the video we create for you for the purposes of marketing and advertising. The video will be uploaded to a private link on YouTube which you will have access to, and you can do with it as you see fit. The video can also be provided to you in raw format, so you can upload it to any other service you want.
This is amazing, is there anything else I should know? Actually, yes... While you are under no obligation to purchase a house from Vermont Modular Homes, if you use this video service from us and do build a home with Vermont Modular Homes, we will extend a $500 credit toward your new home. Not only did the video now not cost you anything, you actually made money to sell your house using this service. How cool is that?
I mean, come on... Is there any fine print? Yes, there is one small caveat that we are also willing to work with you on. This video creation service is limited to houses in Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, as well as parts of New York and Maine. This is not definitive, and is subject to your actual location.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
