Tutorial: How to Generate Real Estate Video by API

Let's see how easy it is to create real estate at scale. We will be using a video API to accomplish this. In order to do so, we will use a video template that defines the design of our video. Then, we will use the video API to create a complete unique video based on that template for each real estate property. Here is an explanation of how it works.

Start with a property video template

There are several real estate video templates that can be used out-of-the-box, but we can also design our own templates if we wish. We can do this by using the online video editor, which allows us to drag and drop video elements into place.

A template can be created using a combination of text, photos, or even recorded video of the property. When combined with a logo, colors, and contact information of the realtor, it is possible to create a powerful video to highlight the listing on social media.

curl -s -X POST \
  -H 'Authorization: Bearer Your-API-Key' \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  --data-binary @- << EOF
  "template_id": "Your Real Estate Video Template ID",
  "modifications": {
    "Video 1": "",
    "Video 2": "",
    "Address": "Los Angeles, CA 90045",
    "Realtor": "Elisabeth Parker"

Generate unique videos using the API

Next, we can generate unique videos for each property using the video API. The API can be invoked by any programming language or no-code tool such as Zapier. In this case, we are using the cURL bash program to invoke the API.

Using our real estate template as a basis, we simply call the REST API while specifying the template ID and any values we wish to add to the video. In this example, we're inserting two videos as well as some details about the property, including the address of the building and the name of the real estate agent. After running this example, we will receive an MP4 URL to our generated video.

Create hundreds of real estate videos

It's that simple. You can imagine that the above command can be fully automated through the use of a script or a no-code scenario, which can be set up to generate hundreds of videos without the need for human intervention.

Due to the API being in the cloud, there is no need to install any software, or to ensure that it scales. This is all handled by Creatomate's video server infrastructure, which allows you to generate tons of videos concurrently and on-demand.

Frequently asked questions

How do I make a real estate video using an API?

Real estate videos can be easily created without installing any video editing software. Simply design a video in the online template editor, and input any relevant property information to create a unique property video using the video API.

How can I promote my real estate listings?

Using short-form video is a great way to market your real estate listing. Simply by utilizing the information about the property that you already have (for example, photographs and building details), you can produce a unique video that is easily shared on Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, and your own website.

How does the real estate video API work?

The real estate video API is just a URL that can be accessed by any software tool (code or no-code, like Zapier) that creates video on demand. As a way to promote real estate listings, the video API generates marketing videos based on the input data you provide it with, such as building photos, video recordings, or property details.

Do I need to make each video manually?

No! A video template is designed once, and then it is re-used with each property, incorporating any unique features or photos of the building to automatically create a unique and shareable real estate video. Once a template has been created, it can be used endlessly.
