In today's housing market, people are always looking to find the latest and greatest way to get a home sold. Some are hoping YouTube does the trick.

Throw in some pictures, maybe some video walking around the house, add music and there you go: a YouTube video to sell your home.

"It's been interesting how many homes we've sold in the million-dollar price range that the kids actually find the property for the parents on YouTube," said Kenny Parcel with RE/MAX Results in Spanish Fork.

He says he tries to put every listing he has on YouTube, and the number of YouTube responses continues to increase.

"I think you've always got to stay a step ahead or you're going to be a step behind," Parcel said.

He says the next move to better use technology is text messaging, allowing people to text in a code number and instantly get pictures and information about a home on their phone.
