The county has been operating in a much different way since March 2020 versus pre-coronavirus times. Many changes have occurred due to the global pandemic. However, except for the initial first few difficult months during the first lockdown, here at Fourwalls, we have continued offering our property marketing services the entire time, while of course still respecting and complying fully with the government guidelines to protect both our clients and team. The market has been far from stagnant. In fact, house sales have been booming as people become more aware of the realities of having to live in a crowded city, or, on the other hand, being far away from certain amenities that they might have been taking for granted before the pandemic.
The videography services that we offer can provide everything from a basic walk-through to films that are beautifully edited using the latest drone and video technologies. Below you can read about the five most popular services that we offer. If you are interested in trying out videography, please let us know.
Use Virtual View to be There Without Being There
Our standard videography service is Virtual View. Over the last year, it has become very popular due to the restrictions imposed on face-to-face contact as a result of the coronavirus. This standard service offers video of up to one minute, showing a continuous walk-through of your property to highlight its layout through the use of mobile capture featuring stabilisation technology. The video is also adapted for websites and social media, which means it is ready to be shared in any medium you need. This is not a bespoke service. However, our video operators can take some directions such as which areas to avoid or focus on. We can shoot in either portrait or landscape based on your preferences. Also, weather permitting, a majority of our Virtual View services will include shots of rear gardens and front externals.
Upgrade to Virtual View Plus for Extra Magic
Do you want something a bit extra? If so, our Virtual View Plus service is similar to the standard videography service that we offer, but more time is available to highlight special details and for extra editing. Smoother camera pans are also used, to give a more professional look to the video and a wider view is provided by shooting in landscape mode.
Use Matterport to Showcase all the Finer Details
Our Matterport platform is the ideal choice for properties (as well as vendors) who need something different. A Matterport scanner is used to film a walk-through of your entire property. Cutting-edge technology is used to produce a highly detailed 3D representation. It is both interactive and online, to provide prospective buyers with the ability to walk through the property at their convenience, without having to be here in person. It provides a true sense of the house as well as its scale. A number of our talented operatives undertake our Matterport service across the country. The footage provides a unique and truly immersive view of your property that is easy to share with both buyers and vendors. It is an outstanding alternative to viewings as well, especially now with restricted travel in place, and particularly for international clients who are in different time zones. It allows prospects to undergo an interactive virtual tour of the property at their convenience.
Use Drone Footage to Give Your Videos a Lift
Drone video footage is an excellent way to show off a property’s impressive features. Whether it happens to be a majestic country home that has lots of land, a coastal setting, or a property with specific facilities, such as farms or stables that are best viewed from above, the scale can be highlighted by drone videography. It also provides a fresh perspective. It can be difficult to judge the scope of outbuildings, land, and the terrain from just a basic floor plan. Our drone operators are all certified and trained, we can ask the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) for permission to ensure that all flights are safe, compliant, and fully insured.
