Automatic Video Captions

75% of Real Estate videos include captions.

When you create a video without captions, you are missing out on the thousands of potential clients that are scrolling through their feed at school, ,work, on the bus, etc.

Also, studies show that captions grab attention and make videos more memorable. They can also help you showcase a house clearly if there is background noise or reach an audience in a different language.

Using  BIGVU's Automatic Captions tool allows you to add captions quickly. The tool generates captions from your voice in the video, so you don't have to fuss with typing captions.

Which direction should you hold your phone?

72% Of Real Estate Videos Are Filmed Initially Vertically

That means that realtors hold the phone lengthwise while recording a video. However, not all videos stay in the directions they are filmed. By using an editing app, you can change the aspect ratio of a video.

This is important since depending on where you share your video, you may need a different size. For example, for an Instagram story, you'll likely prefer to keep your video vertical. However, for an Instagram post a square video will look better.

Try recording or uploading a video to BIGVU. Then, change the aspect ratio to fit your needs- to square, vertical or horizontal.
