I really have no idea where this is going to take me. . .
I heard Gary Vaynerchuk say in his Inman Connect NYC keynote that he thought the “.tv” domain would become the second most powerful top level domain (after .com of course). Beats me if he’s right, but I don’t think it’s a stretch.
Personally, I see a lot of genius in what Gary says. Does everything apply to the real estate vertical? Of course not. But much of it can be modified, and real estate needs some help. Home buyers and sellers need help. For those that are better visual learners, video may be the best way to provide that help.
Video clearly has a place in real estate, and in the future of the internet. In March of 2008, 11.5 billion videos were watched online in the U.S alone.
I don’t think the only application for video in real estate are home walk-throughs. Crappy as they are, The Streets of Phoenix series here has been well received — not by just real estate agents, but buy home buyers and sellers.
Will Phoenix Real Estate Guy TV be worth a damn? I have no idea. But it’ll be fun. Who knows where it will go.
Episode #1 is up. If you are so compelled, take a trip over to Phoenix Real Estate Guy TV and let me know what you think.
