Important Video Hosting Update | Published 05 Dec 2018

Dear Valued Partners
For the convenience of our real estate clients, Private Property has previously hosted property videos on our YouTube channel so that they could easily be uploaded to all property portals.
8 November 2018 - Property 24 have announced that from end November 2018 they will no longer support videos hosted on 3rd party channel sites, like ours. Estate agencies will now need set up their own YouTube channels if they wish to upload video content to their website.
To accommodate this change we are adapting the process of how we deliver our world-class video content to you our customers. 


Private Property is still fully committed to delivering high-quality property content for the industry, together with our wide range of products and services designed to enhance the digital experience.

Positive Impact

All video content on Private Property will NOT be impacted and we are keen to assist all agency brands with setting up their own YouTube channels to make this transition for other portals as smooth as possible. This solution will benefit brands by having their own dedicated channel on YouTube that will allow them to brand and manage that channel with many other positive outcomes.

Negative Impact

All video content hosted on the portals that do not support 3rd party channels might get removed, which may in turn affect the quality and ranking of the listings. The changes will cause operational overhead on office admins and staff, but Private Property is willing to assist.


To ensure that this content is being delivered we have 2 solutions for offices using our HD products 

Option 1.

Once the video content is uploaded on Private Property, we will make the video file available for download. Each office can then upload the video to their brand’s YouTube channel. After the upload offices will be able to copy those video-links to 3rd-party-websites.

Option 2.

For a nominal fee, Private Property will upload all HD videos to the brand’s YouTube channel and then supply the office with the link to use on 3rd-party-websites.
