Real estate video is definitely a big trend this year. Producing and directing a great real estate video is a subject best covered in a another post – but if you already have a video you want to show, the big question is where to host it?

I’ve suggested a few options in the past (see Video Hosting Alternatives to Youtube) but I thought, instead of writing about them, I’d show you instead.
