Multifamily Videos in Your Marketing Mix

Updated March 2024

Have you been playing with the idea of using more video in your multifamily marketing mix? Nowadays, video is king and future residents, especially Millennials and Gen Z renters are looking for byte size (pun intended) information about your property before they even drop you a line. It’s almost a given that you will provide local information about your community and neighborhood, and some standard pictures, but a consistent stream of high-quality video content in your marketing mix of your community and floor plans can score you a new resident over your competitors. Let’s chat about where and how you can add more videos to your mix. 


Video Tours Are a Must for Multifamily

One of the toughest factors for future residents is deciding if your property is a right fit for all of their stuff and potentially their furry friends (or plants, remember your Millennial and Gen Z audience). Spatial measurements can definitely help, but videos within a floor plan can show the true dimensions more visually and include corners or walls that could cause issues with larger furniture (that may not have been apparent from pictures). 

Have a spacious gym or a giant library in your community room? Show ’em off in a video to your future residents! It’s nice for renters to see a space before even walking in the front door to make sure that their standards are met (or better yet, exceeded) and chances are your future resident maybe moving from a distance, so can not tour your property in person. 

The opportunities for video tour resources and support are endless. Even a rendering (as long as it is high-quality) can show a renter how much space they are working with. Most often, new builds and lease-ups will use renderings to show residents what the space will look like, and we can help out with your videos, just ask our Organic Media team.
