Use the best quality sound to eliminate these voice issues in your content.
Keep your eyes closed and start listening to the video. If you feel that sound is off, adjust.
Avoid music that is not suitable
Visual content can get more interesting if the editor throws some music as it wipes out the silence.
Careful selection of music can lead to big applause; however, if selection goes wrong, your editing efforts will not be fruitful.
Transitions and cuts
Smoothness plays a major role in real estate editing.
Abrupt cuts can lead to a decrease in followers and viewership.

Dragging property parts for too long and ignoring this in editing is a big mistake.
This might lead your customers to skip your videos.
Your fonts, font colors, and sizing must be consistent throughout the entire video.
New editors might make the biggest mistake of using different fonts, styles, and colors in a video that distracts viewers’ attention.
The best way is to select a font and stick to the same throughout the visual content.
Standard font sans serif font is usually recommended for making your visual content look appealing.
Sensitive information needs to be removed
Sometimes screen recordings might capture some very confidential information.
Concealing that information must be done by a video editor to ensure such information is not leaked through your visual content.
Make use of close up shots to showcase the exteriors and interiors of all the areas
Keep the pace of the video intact by switching from one visual to another
