Chesterfield, MO (PRWEB) May 27, 2005
Kimberly Cameron, with Prudential Alliance REALTORS in Chesterfield, is now offering streaming internet video home tours on her website, http://www.stlagent.com. Cameron and her real estate team, The STL Agent Team, are the first real estate agents in St. Louis to offer on-line home tours as a standard listing feature.
ÂItÂs something agents on the coasts started using a few years ago to help sell luxury homes,Â said Cameron, Âbut we have yet to find anyone who is offering it as a standard service on all the properties they sell.Â
The on-line videos are two to five minute tours of featured homes that are listed with Cameron and her real estate team. The videos, which are embedded in a standard web page, play using the Microsoft Windows Media Player which is available for both Windows and Macintosh computers. Because the videos are Âstreaming,Â users donÂt have to wait for the entire file to download before they begin to play.
ÂThe internet has changed the way people are starting their search for a new home,Â said Cameron. ÂToday, weÂre finding that more people are starting their home searches on-line instead of with the local newspaper or open houses. Unfortunately the real estate industry has been slow to embrace the internet. It's not uncommon for local agents to still not even have a website; and the majority that have a website are just publish static information and photos that mimic a newspaper ads.Â
ÂWe believe the on-line video tours will give a prospective buyer a better sense of what the home and neighborhood is like,Â Cameron continued. ÂThis is especially important for out-of-town buyers who want to feel like they are there.Â
