How long will it take?
Standard videos for houses between 2,500 and 5000 sqft generally take 1-2 hours to shoot a video walk through.
4K premium videos usually take all day and are based on the best time of day to shoot a house (sunset or sunrise).
Can we make an editing change to the video after you have delivered it?
Our standardized HD walk through tours are offered in very specific manner in order to keep the prices low. Our videos follow a formula, so that our clients know exactly what they are purchasing. Even simple changes can take 3 hours to re-cut, re-render, re-compress, and re-upload and to do so without any payment makes our prices completely infeasible. Corrections of factual errors will be made at no cost, but any re-edits for subjective changes cannot be made without an additional fee.
If there are any special items in the house you want to make sure are covered in the video, please let us know ahead of time. Additionally, please let us know of any items/rooms, like small closets , bathrooms, or garages that you do not want featured in the video.
4K premium videos allow 2 rounds of notes after the initial submission.
Can we pick music for our real estate video?
Music copyrights are taken seriously at Rapid Real Estate Video, and all music is purchased and properly licensed royalty-free music. These tracks typically cost $50, and are chosen at the video editors discretion.
What is your copyright policy?
All videos remain the copyright of Rapid Real Estate Video, and the customer relinquishes all image rights of participants and places contained in the video to RREV in perpetuity.
Rapid Real Estate Video reserves the right to use the video in it’s entirety, or any individual scenes, in isolation, in the making of other videos for promotional purposes on it’s own website.
How should an agent prepare for a video shoot?
Confirmation for time of shoots should be provided to Rapid Real Estate Video at least 24 hours in advance of a shoot.
All staging must be completed before the schedule shoot. Any furniture, lighting, fountains, closet doors, etc. should be set the way you want them to appear in the video before the shoot begins. Our camera team is walking through the house with a 15 pound rig held out in front, stopping to place furniture & doors, remove promotional materials, plug in lamps, etc. isn't a feasible option. If needed our staff can turn on all the lights throughout the house before a shoot.
Houses should be completely empty of other working teams, i.e. stagers, photographers, cleaning staff, showings, etc. Working around others GREATLY increases the time and difficulty of a shoot and especially the editing process. Our team will not begin a shoot until the house is clear of other working teams. A $100 late fee will be applied if our staff has to wait around longer than 30 minutes to begin shooting. Our standardized shoots don't take that long and waiting around can quickly double the length of a shoot.
How are payments handled?
Invoices are emailed in advance of a shoot. Payment is due within two business days of a video shoot, and before delivery of the final edit. PayPal is very convenient for this, and clients can use the convenience of a credit card. If a client prefers to issue a check, it should be brought to the house on the day of a shoot and handed to RREV. If a client decided to mail a check, delivery of the video will be postponed until that check has been received by RREV.
