Corporate Housing Listings Stand out with Video and 360 Photography

A study done a few years ago by Domain.com showed that real estate listings with video got 4X the number of inquiries! Today, video and other rich media is even more important in order to attract and convert prospective renters.

2nd Address is pleased to announce that we’ve just launched the ability for our Hosts to add YouTube videos and 360 degree photography to their corporate housing property listings. This will not only increase listing viewings and inquiries for our Hosts, but it will also increase their conversion rate and decrease the time-consuming in-person showings necessary with some other extended stay platforms.

Here’s an example of a live 2nd Address listing with a walk-through video:

That’s not all! We’ve also added a call-out on property listing pages for properties that have been professionally inspected. There’s an example of what that looks like in another live listing below. One benefit to participating in our professional inspection program is that you’ll get immersive 360 degree photography to add to your property listing. It will also help qualify your property for the 2nd Address Business Stay Approved program if you haven’t yet been able to get the reviews that are normally required. If you’re a 2nd Address Host interested in getting a property professionally inspected, fill out the interest form at the bottom of this blog post. There is a small fee.
