I recently discovered some cool slide shows that could be used in marketing homes or any product and best of all they are totally free. They also provide an embed code so you can show them off on your website, myspace, facebook, etc. I find them to be a great alternative to get your home to stand out online.
I discovered Slide on Teri Isner’s blog. It offers plenty of choices for your slide show including skins, musics, background, effects, size, and privacy. Here is a slide show of one of my favorite listings that is currently for sale at the moment for $995,000. To hear the music you have to click on the sound icon in the slideshow.
I discovered Animoto through the Geek Estate Blog. I think its a great alternative to your boring average slide show. They also offer great options and music for your show but you have less control. The results are quite lovely though. Below is another slide show of my favorite property that is for sale at the moment.
