Extending Your Reach
In today’s real estate market, over 90% of buyers use the internet to start their search for a new home. More than 50% of buyers end up purchasing a home that they found online. Since a majority of people already look for virtual tours or video walkthroughs before doing an in-person showing, the more accessible a home can be online, the better. While photography of a home is great, it doesn’t allow potential clients to truly get a feel for a home the way that a virtual tour can.
Benefits For Everyone
Virtual tours have huge benefits for both sellers and buyers. As a seller, always keeping a home pristine and show-ready can add a large amount of strain on top of a time that is already very stressful. Adding virtual tours to your property means that buyers can peruse your home at their leisure without the pressure of making sure all areas are constantly clean. For a buyer, as you’re viewing a home, you no longer have to worry about feeling rushed through a house by a seller or tenant. You are allowed time to “sit” in a room and examine details or dream about possible layouts without time constraints. Buyers are also not limited by available showing times with virtual tours. The internet is at hand 24/7, 365 days a year. Busy work schedule? No problem. Can’t sleep at 2:00 a.m. and want to browse homes? Not an issue. Virtual tours are able to meet you where you are at, at any time.
With virtual tours, there is an opportunity for better online communication with clients. An agent can give real-time feedback to multiple curious buyers at once through chat features. If your platform can incorporate interactive tools inside of virtual tours, you can include things like mortgage calculators which will help to urge potential buyers towards making a deal.
Buyers that are moving from out-of-state, or even out-of-country can feel much more at-ease about the home they are about to purchase with virtual tours. Depending on the situation, some aren’t able to physically tour houses before a big move, and virtual tours can build huge amounts of confidence in hesitant purchasers.
