Real estate video looks pixilated or low resolution when viewing file2019-12-09T13:15:29-08:00

If your real estate video looks like it is too dark or has dots and low quality look it is very likely you are viewing it in google drive or an online file viewer.

Step 1 – check to see if you are viewing it online in google drive or some sort of digital file share program. If so, please download the file to your computer and watch from there to see full quality.

Step 2 – If you are viewing in youtube, vimeo, or other online video viewing site please check to see what resolution you are viewing it at. In the bottom right corner of the youtube viewer there is an option to select resolution. Youtube may be showing you low resolution versions. Click to change to HD 1080 or 720.

I don’t see the full quality or hi resolution photos of my real estate listing2019-12-09T12:52:42-08:00

If you are being told by your designer that the photos are not full quality or if you believe your listing photos are not high resolution please 1st check the following.

You may have received 2 versions of your photos or 2 folders.

  • 1st is the main high resolution photos
  • 2nd are the web quality photos.

Step 1 – Please check to make sure you are using the photos from the main folder and are not using the photos from the folder “Web Version”. While both are likely large enough for open house flyers and websites, the high resolution images will be a much larger file size, often around 10-20mb and Approximately 5000 pixels. The web quality files will be smaller, often around 2mb. If you are not seeing the large files please let us know.

Step 2 – Make sure they are downloaded to your computer to see the full quality of each photo. Your browser or drive may be downgrading the quality for viewing purposes.
This is my first order and I don’t trust online stuff. Are you guys for real?2019-11-22T16:27:59-08:00

1st, congratulations on making your 1st order with us, we are excited to work with you.

2nd, we understand your concern. We invite you to ask your fellow real estate professionals about the quality of work and professionalism our team provides. You can also contact a representative at your local association, such as Stephanie or Ani at the Santa Barbara Association Of Realtors, to ask them about us.  We are an affiliate member of the SBAOR and one of our representatives often attend the association meetings such as the monthly breakfasts or association parties.

3rd, we work with some of the most trusted payment processors available including paypal and stripe. These processors handle the payment information for our website and thousands of others. We invite you to explore these payment processors or speak to your credit card company and learn about all the security protections they offer consumers and why so many consumers are choosing to use credit cards and online payment methods over checks and cash.

I didn’t receive a confirmation email or receipt. What do I do?2019-11-22T16:03:14-08:00

If you did not receive the automated confirmation or receipt then your order has likely not gone through. This could potentially happen if your wifi shut off during the ordering process and disconnected you or if perhaps your session expired.

Please 1st check your spam folder to confirm you did not receive it.

Or you can simply log in to your account and click on “orders” to see a list of all your orders at: https://listitmarketing.com/my-account/orders/.

If your order is not displayed here then it did not process and must be redone. It is likely still in your cart and you simply have to click to check out again.

In the unlikely event that your order did go through twice or were double charged email us as soon as possible so that web support can address the issue for you.

I can’t upload the floor plan to the… MLS, Appfolio, Zillow, etc.2019-11-22T15:54:00-08:00

How do I request a revision?2019-11-22T15:44:24-08:00

Simply email us with the request and the property address or order number.

Unless labeled otherwise on the order form, we usually allow 1 post production revision request per project so please include all of your requests in 1 email to avoid additional fees to extra work hours incurred going back and forth. This could include cutting a shot from the video, adding or changing room labels on floor plans, or fixing the crop on photos. Extensive or very difficult revision requests that require time and/or revisiting the property may be subject to additional fees. But feel free to contact us 1st and we can let you know.

Can I get a bulk rate discount on services or negotiate your rates?2019-11-22T15:31:38-08:00

I want to talk to you, what is your name? Please call me.2019-11-21T21:08:34-08:00

We understand that in the past, these marketing services were provided by photography students or individuals working from their cellphone. ListItMarketing.com is comprised of a team with multiple services and service providers. If you have a question or a revision request please email us so that your question can be directed to the appropriate person assigned to the property. For example, if you have a revision request for a video then it wouldn’t make sense to contact the drone pilot or web designer, so instead your request would be directed to the editor.

What if the day is too foggy or cloudy for photos? Should I cancel?2019-11-21T20:59:01-08:00

Typically there is no need to cancel. Sky replacement is included in the editing process when needed. Cloud cover can even provide better lighting conditions. There is typically no need to cancel unless a major storm or hard rains that make exterior shots impossible.

How many photos are included?2019-11-21T20:55:18-08:00

There is not a set limit on the amount of photos, within reason. It depends on how many the photographer and/or editor feels is needed to show the property well. On average we expect about 12-25 photos but it depends on the property condition and size. Larger homes can yield as many as 35 while small rentals may only need 5. If you have special requests on the amount of photos please be sure to include that in the order form notes.
