Now you can stream live video from your iPhone or Blackberry. That may be an invaluable tool if you are a Realtor and your clients are located far away. I just did my very first “Live Walk-Through” today. My clients were very happy to be able to see everything as I walked through their property right before closing. Together we explored every nook and cranny. It was as if they were there, only they were many miles away. The live video certainly put their minds at ease about closing by mail.
Later on I streamed live video to a client from New York who wanted to take advantage of a fabulous deal, but couldn’t make it to Myrtle Beach until the end of the month. He got a chance to see the property in detail by live video and is now comfortable making an offer on it.
There are two applications you can download into your smart phones:
UStream for the iPhone and
Although Qik is now available as an iPhone application also, it will not stream live video (yet) from the iPhone.
Once your applications are downloaded into your smart phones and you register with the websites, you can start streaming live video. You can go live and then save the videos on the websites. You can also easily upload them to the other social network sites such as YouTube, Facebook and Twitter. It’s fast and convenient and your clients will love you for it.
Now you really have no excuse for not getting that iPhone! By the way, I have two phones on me at all times: a Blackberry and an iPhone. I use one to talk to my clients, while I shoot video with the other. The more technologically adept you are, the more Real Estate you can sell…
I’m not the only one with both an iPhone and a Blackberry, am I?
