The Uncommon Agent on Good Morning America

February 19, 2009
Todd Waller's DM

Todd Waller's DM

This morning I was greeted with the above Twitter direct message from my Ann Arbor, MI real estate buddy Todd Waller.

Apparently Good Morning America had done a story on the emerging trend of online video to promote properties and they had used clips from my most recent listing video. It had all the makings of an awesome story until I confirmed the second part of Todd’s message that the show failed to give me any credit for the clips. They even cut to a testimonial from a Keller Williams agent immediately after my 2nd clip featuring my voiceover (while my music was still playing in the background!) making it appear that the clip was his!

Here’s the story and the video from this morning’s show.

My clips are the snowy house they show for $249,000 and the scene of the ice skating rink with me talking about “community”. You be the judge. Should ABC have given me some credit? Given the uproar recently about Facebook’s policy on who owns content, this subject seems to be more topical than ever.

Does posting a video on YouTube give anyone license to re-broadcast it however they’d like? My ADD inhibits me from reading the entire YouTube terms of service but I’ve been told it’s in there. So, could I grab some Sienfeld content off YouTube and use it in one of my listing videos? (For instance, if I was listing a co-op upstairs from the infamous Soup Nazi…)

Don’t get me wrong, I was a thrilled to see my video on a national broadcast, (many thanks to Todd “Eagle Eye” Waller for the heads-up without which I would have never known about it), but I would have loved to have a website address up there. Am I wrong?

Market Updates: August 2008

September 7, 2008
90 King Street, Norfolk, MA SOLD! 8/25/08 $425,000

90 King Street, Norfolk, MA SOLD! 8/25/08 $425,000

Below are the market reports for the month of August 2008. In half the markets (Medway, Walpole and Millis) average days on market were up slightly from the previous month. In the other three markets (Medfield, Norfolk and Franklin) average days on market were down from July. Based on average days on market, number of transactions and average sales prices vs. average list prices I would say overall there seems to be some slightly upward pressure on the market. By no means have we “turned the corner” but based on my month-to-month analysis, I would say things have remained steady and if anything have creeped slightly up.

As always, if you want a more detailed explanation of what’s going on in your specific market, please give me a call. I’m always happy to talk about real estate with my friends and neighbors.

Have a great Fall!

Bad MLS photo of the day....

OK, so this is hardly the most original idea for a blog post (closer to the least original probably) and tons of people have done it better and earlier, but I just had to share this photo I came across while looking for properties for my buyers. Read the rest of this entry ?
