Home Sale Through Podcasting?

If your searching for a new luxury home, why not try looking at… podcasts? 

In a first for a high-end real estate network, Christie’s Great Estates launched a series of luxury lifestyle video podcasts this month, providing potential homebuyers with an in-depth look into the history of a property and the lifestyle it offers. The visually rich podcasts—narrated by the homesellers themselves—are reserved for the most distinguished and facinating estates on the market and are available for viewing on the Video Gallery section of www.christiesgreatestates.com.

America’s Living Room- The Historic Evermay Estate

  • Brandi says:

    How cool! Also, looks like this home might have a really neat view…

  • Sara says:

    Very cool…but that face in the room is so scary. Not sure how I feel about this.

  • Colleen says:

    It is amazing how every type of industry is finding new ways to use technology.

  • Betsy says:

    Even though that video is a little dry, take a look at Evermay house, it actually is very interesting. I always appreciate looking at houses like this – even the walls were made with so much detail. You just don’t see that in Arizona, where everything is new and the goal is to get it up in 6 months. This owner will definitely be a very special person who has a respect for politics, history and art. I think one could absolutely give this a bit of modern flare while stile maintaining the history.

  • SARA says:

    does not surprise me at all….. the whole economic situation has made people THINK more about different options for reaching their audience. funny thing is, most of it is free – – – and it works.

  • Jess says:

    I think this is a great way to reach a broader market.

  • Bravo, I think this is a great idea
