So he took his Saddle River open house to the public.
Last Sunday, he hosted a live broadcast from his listing at 126 Cortland Drive in Saddle River Grand using the new social media app Periscope.
Periscope, a Twitter company, launched just five months ago and already has 10 million registered users. It’s a platform which allows any registered user to host a live video broadcast using the camera and mic on their mobile device — tablet or smartphone, Apple or Android. The app works using a cellular connection, no high-speed network is required. To download Periscope visit www.Periscope.TV.
Shetler is able to “show” the house using streaming audio and video live to whomever is tuning in. His followers receive an alert when his broadcasts begin. Viewers are able to send in their questions and comments during the broadcast, along with “hearts” viewers send when they see or hear something they like.
Joining him to help show the Saddle River Grand townhouse was architect/designer Aparna Vijiyan from Ulrich, Inc. Vijiyan designed many of the high-end kitchens in the development.
Shetler also shared the broadcast with Shane Force, a Mortgage Consultant and Sales Manager with Atlantic Home Loans.
The recorded video is available on Periscope for 24 hours following the broadcast. After that, Shetler plans on having it available on YouTube (www.YouTube.com/mshetler.)
In addition to the live open house, Shetler is marketing his listing using a 3-dimensional home tour, available online at Saddle-River-Grand.com. 3-D Home Tours are created using a special laser camera that records both photographic images and space geometry. The result is a realistic 3-D model that can be viewed online without any special software or glasses. Buyers have the ability to “walk” through the dwelling, going into every room and seeing the space in 3-dimensions. The buyer gets a true sense of the scale and floorplan while engaged with the tour.
The Live Periscope Broadcast and 3-D Home Tour are part of Shetler’s digital marketing strategy that helps sell homes faster and for more money. Shetler uses advanced online marketing techniques to proactively reach a targeted audience rather than waiting for buyers to find the listing on their own.
