How to create property listing videos for social media

Video automation is a straightforward process that helps you create many videos from templates and dynamic data. With just one video design, you can automatically create videos for each listing based on properties' photographs, prices, descriptions, and realtor information. Here's a brief overview of how it works.

Create a property listing template

The first step is to create a property listing template, which is the design for your videos. It contains placeholder elements, such as text and images, which will be different for each video. Through one of the three automation methods outlined in the next step, these placeholders are filled with information about each listing.

There are several ready-made templates available that can be used across different social media platforms. However, you can also create your own templates using the editor, allowing you to create video designs that match your brand's style and needs.

Choose your automation method

Once you have your template in place, pick one of the following three automation methods that work best for you:

  • Using a spreadsheet is the easiest way to create real estate videos. This process involves uploading a list of properties, where each spreadsheet row is converted into a unique social media video. This is a very effective way to create many property videos at once. Here's a tutorial with detailed instructions.
  • Use a no-code platform like Zapier. This allows you to set up a fully automated workflow using any of the 5,000 app integrations. As an example, you can create a workflow that generates a video based on a real-time trigger from another app (such as Airtable, Google Sheets, etc.), that automatically posts the video to social media. You will learn how in this tutorial.
  • Alternatively, you can programmatically generate a social media video for each property listing using code. If you or someone on your team is a developer, you can integrate with the REST API using programming languages like Javascript, PHP, Ruby, or Python. Check out this guide to get started.

Auto-generate social media videos for real estate

Thanks to video automation, creating social media videos for your property listings has never been easier. No matter what your needs are or what level of technical knowledge you have, one of the three automation methods mentioned above will work for you.

If you're not sure which method to choose, we recommend using spreadsheets. As your automation needs grow, you can always decide whether a Zapier workflow or API integration would be a better solution.
