 Local Agent Brings Internet Real Estate Video Tours to St. Louis

For Immediate Release

CHESTERFIELD , Missouri /May 24, 2005/Kimberly Cameron, with Prudential Alliance REALTORS in Chesterfield, is now offering streaming internet video home tours on her website, www.stlagent.com. Cameron and her real estate team, The St Louis Agent Team, are the first real estate agents in St. Louis to offer on-line home tours as a standard listing feature.

“It’s something agents on the coasts started using a few years ago to help sell luxury homes,” said Cameron, “but we have yet to find anyone who is offering it as a standard service on all the properties they sell.”

The on-line videos are two to five minute tours of featured homes that are listed with Cameron and her real estate team. The videos, which are embedded in a standard web page, play using the Microsoft Windows Media Player which is available for both Windows and Macintosh computers. Because the videos are “streaming,” users don’t have to wait for the entire file to download before they begin to play.

“The internet has changed the way people are starting their search for a new home,” said Cameron. “Today, we’re finding that more people are starting their home searches on-line instead of with the local newspaper or open houses. Unfortunately the real estate industry has been slow to embrace the internet. It's not uncommon for local agents to still not even have a website; and the majority that have a website are just publish static information and photos that mimic a newspaper ads.”

“We believe the on-line video tours will give a prospective buyer a better sense of what the home and neighborhood is like,” Cameron continued. “This is especially important for out-of-town buyers who want to feel like they are there.”
