3 Reasons New Home Builders Find Success With Video

Last Updated April 19th, 2022

Anxiety can run high during any sales process, especially one that includes significant financial decisions. And buying, customizing, and building a new home certainly qualifies. So how can new home builders like you ease apprehension and even doubt?

New home builders are easing anxiety and seeing more success by putting a face and voice to a name, communicating more clearly, and managing emotion and tone with video messaging. You see, face-to-face communication creates a space for warmth, sincerity, and personal connection that fosters the trust you need to build relationships with your prospects and clients.

Below, you’ll find three reasons video messaging can help you reduce hesitancy and increase confidence during the home-buying process.

When reaching out to prospects and clients with video messages instead of (or as a complement to) voicemails, emails, and text messages, sales professionals for new home builders are:

1. Reducing anxiety
2. Increasing accountability
3. Building connection

Let’s explore how…

Reducing Anxiety

Let’s face it – if you’re a sales professional, people often approach you with a bit of anxiety and even with their guard up. New Home Specialist Danielle Lipari-Mareth says, “Walking in and talking to a salesperson is usually something people dread.” But you’re not an intimidating person, you don’t have an intimidating persona, and you have value to provide.

Video conveys personality and builds rapport with warmth. And with a video introduction, follow-up message, or appointment reminder, you can break down that wall, increase replies, and make the sales process much easier — and more successful.

Improving Accountability

How easy is it to avoid or cancel an appointment when there’s no personal connection? Introducing yourself, then following up with a video appointment reminder lets your prospects know that someone is waiting for them. Robin Kroencke of Pacesetter Homes shares, “People feel almost obligated to show up because they’ve seen a face, they’ve seen an actual person, and it gets them excited.”

You see, when people are excited to meet with you, they’re less likely to leave you hanging. They understand that you’re a real person who has value to offer and that your time matters.

Building Emotional Connection

Every customer has specific wants or needs in their new home and community. Help them build a connection to a new place by using the BombBomb Mobile App.

Recording a video from your prospect or client’s new home and community will help get them excited. Be sure to highlight specific features that your customer has mentioned or responded positively to during the home-buying process. And, as Robin conveys in her video below, people who can’t be there in person can also watch your video and experience the home or community as if they were there.
