Default Creative or Creepy Home Marketing?

Is the Ottawa Real Estate market that slow?

I wonder what the neighbours were thinking when they saw the filming of this? It's a creative idea but creepy I find at times. How about you? LOL!

"Contact the agent for a private viewing"

....it gets more private? lol

but seriously... It's creative and everything but it really wouldn't encourage me to buy a home after I've seen someone take a bubble bath in my potential bathtub.

It's a really nice house and if the price was right I'm sure I could get over it, but I hope this doesn't catch on.

I'm not sure what his commission on that house sale is going to be, but that was at least $10K worth of production. Not including the actors. It was done quite well.

I don't know about you guys, but I personally hate youtube videos for real estate ads. I want to take a look at the pictures in full HD. I don't need it narrarated, don't want them to pan around and zoom in on the stove.

Yes, definitely creepy.

Ditto. Also can't stand the self-propelled slide shows with the cheesy music and the hidden mute buttons.

It’s creative and great presentation to the market….either you hate it or love it, at least it brings it to your attention.
