What is a Video Tour?
Video tours on TurboTenant are a useful tool to help prospective tenants envision your property as their new home. It is a pre-recorded walk-through of your property highlighting the unique features and amenities that make your place special. The more comprehensive your listing page is the less of a chance you’ll waste time on showings, applications, and messages from renters that aren’t a good fit.
Recording your Video Tour
Your first step will be to record your video tour. A good quality mobile phone works great. We’d also suggest you take a couple of extra minutes to script out your tour so it looks cohesive.
Once you’ve recorded it you need to upload it to YouTube or Vimeo. For help on how to upload videos to Youtube or Vimeo here are some links:

Making your Video Tour Standout
Here are a few simple guidelines for ensuring your video pops!
- Make sure to show the features that make your listing unique (beautiful views, big walk-in closet, extra storage, etc).
- You’ll want renters to picture themselves living on your property. The best way to do this is to film the property with the natural flow and layout of the listing.
- Think about the quality and timing of your video; a grainy video or one that is too short or too long will not make a positive impression on renters.
