Opportunity is knocking in this hot market for voices. Strategize with us :)
It's almost officially Spring. Thank you Wiarton Willie!
For real estate agents and homeowners looking to sell, now's the time to get their home on the market and scout eager buyers. The tried and true methods of selling a house are still quite popular, but in recent years, the real estate marketplace has adapted to online strategies, including voice-over coupled with virtual marketing.
Voice-overs for the home buying and selling market can be recorded as often as three times a day or more, depending on the number of homes that a particular agent or service has partnered with that day.
Because of the high volume of real estate projects an agency receives everyday, real estate companies realize that fostering strong relationships with professional voice talents is necessary as well as competitive. That being said, real estate voice talent need to be good, reliable, affordable, persuasive and fast!
One might think that this market is untapped, and it nearly is. Given this information, it might be a good idea to produce an MP3 demo of your voice for the fast-paced real estate movers and shakers and their continuous cycle of clientele.
Need some incentives? Well, think about this: By recording voice-over work for real estate, you may be just as effective when it comes to closing the deal as the real estate agent is. Not only that, but you could be introducing someone to the home of their dreams!
Now that we're on the same page... Do you need a home sellers script to record from? In The Voice-Over Script Collection, there is an entire section devoted to voice-overs for real estate applications, from commercials to online virtual tours of property listings.
There's no better time to jump on this than now. The snow is melting, an air of rejunventation is sweeping the continent, and parents who are looking to move after the school year is over (the end of May or June, depending on where you live) are putting their houses up for sale NOW!
It's also Spring Break season and people are coming back itching for a change in residency.
Here's where you can find some pro scripts to land some real estate voice-over jobs.
