How to upload videos to your listings


Updated on Aug 09 • 1 minute read

Having a video of your property offers the ultimate experience for potential tenants and might help them make up their minds quicker.

Videos give a sense of reality and they are the perfect virtual viewing experience. In fact, having a video in your listing along with a floor plan and an attractive description, means in-person viewings won’t be needed!

How to make a great video

  1. Start your videos as if you were giving an in-person viewing, by entering the front door.

  2. Ideally make your video during the day, taking advantage of natural daylight, or turn the lights on if needed.

  3. You should aim to do your ‘walkthrough’ video within 1 - 2 minutes maxi; preferably take your video in one continuous shot.

  4. Make sure you show all common areas, including bathroom and toilets, like in a real viewing.

  5. Using a smartphone is perfectly fine, as it is inexpensive and the quality is good enough. Just make sure you have enough storage before shooting the video.

  6. There is no need for you to speak whilst filming. The video will be muted when uploaded to your listing.

  7. Remember to make one video for every listing you have.

However, if you’re not sure whether you can take videos that do justice to your place, you can avail yourself of our partnership with BOOM Image Studio.

How to upload your videos

First off, to add a video to your listing you need to have a YouTube account. After having uploaded the video on YouTube, make sure that it is public. Afterwards, you can copy and paste the link of the video into the Listing Details page.

You can either add your video to a new listing or edit an existing one. If you don't have a YouTube account, no problem! Simply send the video by email to, or to your HousingAnywhere Account Manager, and we will upload it to YouTube for you and add it to your listing.

If you have several listings, then please provide the links that correspond to the listing on HousingAnywhere. Remember: it's only possible to upload one video per listing.

Here's how the video will look on your HousingAnywhere listing.
