Calgary Real Estate Board gets virtual with ‘Web Open House’ Program

camera.jpgThe Calgary Real Estate Board (CREB) has partnered up with a third-party video supplier to provide its members easy access to the production of video open houses with a program called ‘Web Open House’.

“Streaming live video is new technology and we want to be on the cutting edge,” says Bruce Klippenstein, Manager and Editor for CREB Publications. “We want to be a leader in helping Realtors market their clients’ property.”  

The benefits of this partnership, which sets it apart from other independant virtual tour providers, is that agents can bill the video tours directly to their CREB accounts, so they don’t have to worry about putting it on a credit card.

Working with a trusted third-party video producer allows the board to control the quality of the videos. It also helps streamline the process of posting ‘virtual tour’ links on the web and their public-access MLS. 

The advantage for the consumer, of course, is that they can view property listings from the comfort of their own homes, without having to schedule a viewing to tour the home.

At Base 10 Web Solutions, we are interested in hearing from web and photography service providers from across Canada, who would like to become approved vendors for our UniqueHomeSites product.
