Buy Alexandria Real Estate: Houses Gettin' Sold Rap Video

Alexandria Virginia Real Estate Blog

Houses Gettin' Sold Rap Video

Inventory of homes for sale is extremely tight in Northern Virginia - at last look there's just over 1 month supply of homes on the market.  Same goes for DC.  In fact, right now, much of the country is having a similar phenomenon in the local real estate markets.


I explain in the rap video below "Houses Gettin' Sold!" 

This is the world premiere of the new hit rap video.

I didn't know I was a rapper and you probably didn't either, at least until I made this video.

That must have taken you 10 days to go everywhere to put that together!

One - I'm glad your hat is tilted to the right.  As it should be.

Two - your peep knew to dye her hair.  Wazzup witchew?

Three - do you have anything in Beatles or Bob Seger?

Excellent by the way.  But, I hope you keep your broker job...

Great video! I love it and your video vixen as well! I hope the trend makes it this far South!

My wife liked the blog!

When I asked her why she doesn't dye her hair like that she said hers is already red.  She has a point...

If you can't do Beatles or Seger, maybe Led Zeppelin?

"And she's buyaying a stahairwaaaayyy ... to so-ooooolllllld."

Works for me.

Houses are definitely getting sold in Washington. DC. But there is no inventory to sell which is a problem. When houses with mold are getting sold-We definitely have a hot real estate market. Which I can say the same for PG County MD Homes for sale-I am going to just leave that one alone.

This was so hilarious, I about died laughing and HAD to share it on my Facebook. Thanks for a laugh, I loved this!

That's very creative marketing, that is likely to grab the attention of the young up and coming somethings to the marketplace.   Housing is definitely a HOT item in the Greater Sacramento Region currently.  A shortage of inventory is our only hindrance!

What a great way to do something different! Wonderful job. Too funny. :)

Is it viral yet?

Posted by Lyn Sims, Schaumburg IL Area Real Estate (RE/MAX Suburban) over 5 years ago

I give you an A+ for creative marketing! That is a wonderful video and I am sure it will go viral among the real estate world!

You are one cool dude, Brian, to do this! A most creative approach.

Posted by Nina Hollander, Your Charlotte/Ballantyne/Waxhaw/Fort Mill Realtor (RE/MAX Executive | Charlotte, NC) over 5 years ago
Brian - This is creative and fun, and like you, we have no inventory in Orange County, CA.
