We’re kicking it up another notch by adding VScreen videos to every listing! Every Coldwell Banker Elite will have a video. Actually it will have two videos. One will be the unbranded video that is required by MRIS and the second will be a branded version that is pushed out to your public listings. The video updates itself as you update MLS. When you change the price, the video will automatically reflect that price, etc… With an engaging interface, voiceover and lead generation system, Vscreen is an exceptional tool to help you get the listing and promote it to buyers.
VScreen also creates a video on YouTube that you can link to your CB OnLocation site, Realtor.com and Zillow.
We don’t want to interfere with any unique video marketing that you’re doing so you are still free to add their personal videos to your listings through all of these aggregators.
VScreen Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take for the video to be created after adding to the MLS?
The videos can take around 5 days to be created from the time you enter it into the MLS. The reason I say “around 5 days” is because it is dependent on how fast the listing information gets to ListHub from the MLS. Our ListHub account feeds VScreen the information for the videos and your listing information can take a few days to get to ListHub. Once the listing is in ListHub then it only takes 24 hours for the video to be created on VScreen’s end.
Are videos created for rentals or just homes for sale?
Currently the videos are homes for sale.
What can be changed on the video after it is already made?
Everything can be changed. Price, photos, etc. Takes up to 48 hours once it is fed to VScreen.
At the end of the video a Contact Me and Share on Facebook icon pops up. Where do these go?
The Contact Me button goes directly to your ColdwellBankerElite.com profile. The Facebook icon allows you to share the video on Facebook.
Will these videos be added to YouTube?
The VScreen videos were just loaded last night to the CBE YouTube channel. The videos on our YouTube channel will be updated mid-month, once a month. For those of you who don’t know our YouTube channel is https://www.youtube.com/CBEliteMedia
How do I find my video?
Currently the fastest way is to go to the CBE VScreen Listing Portal and search for your listing.
You should also receive an email alert when your video is ready.
What if a “scene” in the video has information that would be negative?
Several scenes have built-in safeguard thresholds to ensure the listing is always represented favorably. These safeguards are applied to each individual Listing Video independently. The logic for each is as follows:
- Listing Date: if the listing has been on the market longer than 60 days this scene will automatically be removed from the video.
- Median Listing Price/Median Sales Price: if the listing price is greater than the median price this scene will be automatically removed from the video.
- Walkability: if the walkability score for the listing is less than 2.5 stars, this scene will automatically be removed from the video.
How do I get the pictures in my video to match up with what the video is talking about in each scene?
The photos in the videos are pulled from the MLS and the order in which the photos in the video are talked about (scenes) match up with the order in which the videos are placed in the MLS.
For example, during the video if you want a picture of a bedroom to show up when they are talking about the number of bedrooms in the home then you have to make sure the picture of the bedroom is in the right order in the MLS.
This is the order of the scenes and which pictures will show up and the order you will want videos in the MLS. The list below shows: Photo Order # both in video and MLS| What they are talking about during video
1 | Main photo of home
2 | Price of home
Note: If the home has been on the market under 60 days the number of days on market scene will be here and shift everything down. If the home has been on the market longer than 60 days then the 3rd photo will show during the scene below “When home was built”
3 | When home was built

5 | Lot Size
6 | # of Bedrooms
