tara, thanks for the useful information. I hear you on the price points. I gather here on AR there are all levels. As an industry I think the major of sales are in the 100 - 300k point. With that I am interested in the flip video information.

I just re-blogged you...  Part IV is great.  Or should I just say "Great info, keep them coming."

Great stuff Tara- Let TJ know I am working diligently on finding a camera for our little experiment.  I thought I had one, but it isn't the right type that TJ said we needed.

Tara - thanks for the info.  I agree that $500k in So.Cal. maybe totally different than other markets and at a certain price point, it becomes important to bring in something more professional.

So glad you all are enjoying the new episode.  I'm on vacation all this week (yes, it happens about every 5 years!) so I'll be checking in periodically.  Have a great week and remember, there's another episode coming out Monday!!

Tara- Your video episodes are great. When using the flip video for community showcasing you can use voice over in Active Rain/Mixpo video editing to get a very professional sounding and looking video. We work in the luxury market and sell these homes without video:) Of course we are not in the most internet savy place in the world:) I do write very complete blog post with lots of photos that make the phone ring for higher price points, I am talking over 1 M.

Katerina- That's great! The main problem with the Flip camera is its limited capabilities.  If you know how to work around those, you can certainly get creative.
