My New Video on How to Prepare Your House for Sale

By
Real Estate Agent with Lyon Real Estate BRE #00697006

Prepare Your Home for SaleOf all my 500 or so articles on About.com, the one about preparing your home for sale is swiped the most often and plagiarized practically daily, so I figured this was a good piece to do a video on. (Note to plagiarizers: everything on the Internet, unless specified otherwise, is copyrighted.)

I cover the top ten crucial details on how to get your home ready for sale in my article. The video goes a couple steps further and actually shows you rooms before they were prepped for the market and what they looked like afterward.

Just click on the photo to the left or on this link below to play the video:

Elizabeth, nicely done! Like the music in the background as well. By the way, the Lowe's advertisement starts the video. How did you get that to go there in the first place?

It was a blast to film, Barbara; thanks for coming by.

I think I am a pro, Mana. :)

Hi Jim: The 15-second commercial is how About.com receives extra revenue for producing the videos. They are always home related, but I don't have any control of what precedes each video.

Hi Jim: We filmed at a client's staged home in Land Park just before it closed escrow. I love, love, love the videographer -- she's really the professional; I'm just the presenter. I have a 5th video coming soon -- it's about foreclosures, and WOW, you will be blown away by the stuff she shows.

Thanks, Michael.

Spokane Washington Real Estate Expert Hey Elizabeth, nice video, I noticed you talked about copyright, I am a keeper of copyright also, though I'm not sure what you mean by plagerize, because your video has an embed feature with code meaning you are authorizing people to use it. let me know what you mean.

Thanks, Debi, Mike and Irina. It's hard to pack a lot of information into a 90-second video.

Hi Jesse: Nope, no silver screen for me -- although, you know, I used to direct, star and produce in fairy tale plays at school when I was in fifth grade. Mainly because I discovered I could put half the class in it and not have to do any schoolwork.

Hi Teri: Part is memorized, part is script and part is whatever one feels like saying. We do have a monitor, though. I don't know what Mixpo is or even how to do it.

Hi Ross: When I talk about plagiarism, I'm complaining about content theft. Whether you can download the video, I have no idea. Try it. Let me know if you can.
