We have created a way for you to get a custom holiday video, perfect for positing to Facebook or Instagram. The video will feature your contact info and area specific photos (or we can pull from your specific listings upon request) in our Holiday Theme.
To order your custom holiday video in time for the holidays, just complete the video request and we will turn it around, typically within 1 business day. Just be sure to order before 12/24! The video is $25.
If you want us to use Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukkah (or any other customization) just tell us in the comments section for specific things you want. Remember, the limit is 1 minute to meet social media guidelines, so please be cognizant of that with your requests.
We are now offering a custom social media video for any listing. You can order a custom Slideshow Video as you place an order. We are now including the Social Media Video with every Custom Slideshow Video! So you get 3 videos – the branded custom slideshow video and an unbranded version, both of which are embedded on your tour, and the 30 to 60 second social media video for use on sites like Instagram.
Introducing a new service for any photo – the Virtual Twilight upgrade.
The virtual twilight upgrade takes ONE day-time photo and simulates a twilight scene using Photoshop. It is not a replacement for twilight photography with multi-bracketed shots or advanced lighting techniques that will bring in the interior space view. These examples are representative of the kind of lighting and window views you should expect. We do try to remove shadows (unlike the other guys that just darken the photo so shadows are visible), add lighting effects and adjust window color to simulate twilight photography. However, if you are expecting to clearly see the inside of the home and have no window reflections, please do not order this option as refunds will not be provided.
– just move the slider back and forth to see the difference between the original and the edited photo –
Pricing of the virtual twilight is $35 per photo edited, and you can order it as you place an order. See examples of skies available and of finished photos below.
– click any image to see it full screen with the selected sky –
Please email us with your requests or questions as we do have other skies we can select from if you have a special circumstance. Note: you can also order this option after your order has been produced by emailing customer care or call us at 866-810-3816.
Adding aerial images and video can really add a wow factor to a normal listing. In this post I detail some of the tips and tricks I use in drone shooting. Hopefully it can help you too.
I am flying with a Mavic Pro2 with the Hasselblad camera. The thing I like about the Mavic is it is small, easy to maneuver, stable and the camera lens and sensor are great. I also have a Phantom 3 Advanced, and I find it a bit harder to use, and less stable. So if you are still using a Phantom, you might think of upgrading.
Creating an aerial video is not hard. The FloorPlanOnline production department will take your video clips and make a custom video. All we need is raw footage to help us tell the story. You can check out the FPO Air doc on some key moves you should have for each video. I also have compiled a few videos from YouTube that explain some of the modes that help make it easier. The Mavic has more but the Phantoms also have various flight modes. Just search YouTube for your specific model and modes.
At the end of the day, we just need some stable, well exposed clips to put in a video. These are generally 2-5 second clips. All you need to do is fly and record and FPO Production will extract the clips out of the footage. Just follow the shots in the FPO Air doc.
more important than photos, almost 2x more important than video
According to Zillow research, 58% of buyers rank the ability to view a floor plan of the home online while shopping for a property as extremely or very important. A total of 84% of buyers view floor plans is as important. What’s really surprising is floor plans outscored professional photos and videos. Only 46% of buyers said photos were extremely or very important. Only 28% think viewing a video is very or extremely important. See the Power of Plans presentation to see how floor plans can take your listing marketing to the next level.

We help you get more Leads, Listings & Repeat Business
The photos, tools and presentations that FloorPlanOnline and their incredible photographer, Joel, provide have absolutely helped take our business to the next level this past year. On more than one occasion we have had listings in close proximity of other similar listings in a neighborhood and each time we have drawn much larger crowds to our open houses and garnered much higher selling prices than the others. Having FloorPlanOnline tours to show our clients has definitely helped us land listings, sell homes faster & for more money, and been a wonderful keepsake for our sellers after the closing.
