6. Add the audio later – Recording your talking points while filming is a bad idea. While granite counters and high ceilings are great selling points, they can be counter-productive (pun intended) in terms of sound quality. As mentioned, the home and neighborhood features should sell themselves so when you script the audio, point out how the area was remodeled including details about the finishes. Also, if the space is dated, highlight the potential it has for remodeling. Adding details about a room and how it accommodated a certain number of guests for a holiday dinner or backyard barbeque are great examples of points that personalize the experience for the viewer.
