Looking for some inspiration for your next marketing campaign? Need a laugh after a particularly tough day? Maybe you’re on information overload from all the solid strategy, tech reviews, and resources here on The Close, and you just want to kick back and relax?
Whatever your reasons, these hilarious real estate videos are what you need in your life right now. Enjoy!
1. ‘Escrow’ Music Video
The boys from Metzen Realty and Associates felt that a standard Facebook post or email newsletter wouldn’t adequately articulate how hot the market is right now. So they wrote and starred in their own music video about what it’s like buying and selling homes out there.
The music is hilarious, the wigs are outstanding, and honestly, they’re not wrong about the market conditions 😂.
2. ‘Old Spice’ Realtor
Remember those Old Spice commercials from a while back with the handsome man on a horse or in the shower, telling you, “Hello, ladies, look at your man, now back to me, now back at your man, now back to me?” Well, the surprisingly hilarious Realtors at Landmark Realty spoofed that ad, recreating it for their real estate business.
Honestly, this is one we can’t stop watching. But in a tragic turn of events, we’ve been unable to track down the fellow in this video! We want to link to his site, so if you know him, please put us in touch so we can give him credit and ask him what it’s like to be so funny.
3. ‘Millennial Homebuyer’ Music Video
It’s tough out there for buyers these days, but especially so for young buyers with unrealistic expectations. The creative geniuses over at IFHT Films shot a music video about that moment your client realizes they can’t afford as much house as they thought. If you haven’t LIVED this with a buyer before, you’re probably not working with enough buyers.
4. 9 Epic Emotions Every Real Estate Agent Will Understand
(Illustrated by a very emo Leonardo DiCaprio)
If you’ve ever started the day singing a happy song into a cup of coffee and finished the day sobbing into a glass of wine, this video is going to resonate with you. And, let’s be honest, who doesn’t love a little extra Leo in their life? Big shoutout to the Professionals Prowest Real Estate team. This is amazing content.
5. Ben Bacal’s Property Marketing Masterpiece ‘Dog Inherits Millions’
Los Angeles real estate guru Ben Bacal and his team are experts at taking a unique approach to marketing their listings, but this video goes above and beyond. Crafting a story around a dog named Sherlock Bones, who inherits his late owner’s estate, Bacal shows us around a Hollywood Hills mega-mansion—mainly from the perspective of the adorable Corgi who now owns it, through his dreams of living large.
We gave props to Sherlock Bones in our YouTube video called “5 Outrageous Real Estate Marketing Stunts That Actually Worked,” but we absolutely had to include him again here. Whether you need a laugh, an escape to an ultra-premium property for a few minutes, or just some inspiration for your next property marketing campaign, you have got to watch this.
6. Real Estate Cowboys Showdown
Landmark Realty (the same folks who made the Old Spice commercial parody mentioned above) got an early start in hilarious content production in this Old West showdown with a real estate twist.
Yes, this video was produced back in 2010, but great comedy stands the test of time.
7. If Adele Were a Realtor
Remember Adele’s big hit “Hello” from 2015? Of course you do. Now, imagine if Adele was a real estate professional with a penchant for power ballads.
Actually, you don’t have to imagine it because Megan Hill Mitchum of Urbandale, Iowa, has already parodied it. Her video gets off to a slow start, but about 35 seconds in, she starts belting it out, and it’s totally worth the wait.
Mitchum had us at “Hello, it’s me…the average buyer sees 12 homes, but we’ve seen 63.”
