Imagine your buyer asks you for another angle of that kitchen rendering. Consider it easily done. Perhaps they want to visualize themselves in the property, it will soon be possible. The innovative applications for this technology are somewhat endless, but here’s a few ways that we envision using AI technology to supercharge our real estate content of the top of our heads:

Endless Visuals: Rather than relying solely on costly renderings, Sora empowers real estate professionals to leverage existing images or videos to create dynamic visualizations at a fraction of the cost. With Sora’s intuitive platform, you will be able to generate additional views in seconds, customize spaces, and craft captivating videos that take potential buyers on immersive journeys through the property. This innovative approach not only saves time and money but also opens up endless possibilities for showcasing the property’s full potential with rich, interactive content.

Bring Your Space to Life: Want to showcase more than just the property itself? With Sora, you can upload videos or images of properties and seamlessly integrate lifestyle elements such as outdoor scenes, bustling city streets, or serene landscapes. There will be no need to hire models and have costly lifestyle shoots. Simply ask Sora to add some life. By setting the scene and evoking emotions, you can create a compelling narrative around the property.

Example Prompt: “Sora, please create a video showcasing a busy community green space full of people working, reading, and relaxing.”

Advanced Personalization: Picture a future where AI grants us the ability to present potential buyers with a property adorned with their personal belongings or a family that mirrors their own enjoying the space. With a mere reference photo of an empty room, we’ll harness the power of AI to tailor the design according to the buyer’s distinct preferences and requirements.

Example Prompt: “Sora, adorn this kitchen with a charming country-style motif” or “Transform this bedroom into a lively kids’ room complete with bunk beds.”

In conclusion, AI video is poised to revolutionize real estate marketing as we know it. While this might worry some creative professionals, it underscores the importance of having a skilled marketing team to generate ideas and craft expert prompts. After all, the quality of AI output is only as good as the input it receives. Looking ahead, I envision a future where platforms like Zillow and integrate AI technology into their listing services.
