A Virtual Tour Of The Real World

house A Virtual Tour Of The Real WorldAs the internet continues to go from strength to strength many Real Estate professionals continue to look towards Virtual Tours as a way to assist clients and save their own time. But how many actually push forward with the idea, and what benefits does it offer?

A Virtual Tour is the ultimate Real Estate Virtual Assistant, the kind of issue which you can personalize for yourself and your customers. So why do so few actually take on the adventure? Quite simply……fear

There have been some massive improvements in software over the last few years, web cam technology is unrecognizable for twenty years ago and broadband is now common place – all elements required for the perfect Virtual Tour. While it takes time to perfect your offerings, I have the time, the software and the application to make it happen.

So what are the real benefits?

There are a number of benefits which include:-

  1. Expanding your potential customer base to people out of the area. A virtual tour allows them to look before they visit, to see if it really has what they want.
  2. It saves YOUR time with those customers who never quite close the deal, the ones who are always promising some action but never quite deliver.
  3. In many ways it will also improve your sales figures because if the customer has seen the virtual tour (the property in a perfect light) then in many cases it will just be a case of closing the deal. Your virtual tour has already warmed up the customer!

However, there is still a need for face to face negotiations, which is where your skills will come in, but I can help you will your online presence and your marketing techniques. Just a few small changes can make a virtual world of difference – you will be very surprised.

    My sellers and my buyers always comment on how wonderful our virtual tours are. We hire a man who does both our still photography and 360 degree tours. I agree with you 100% that they are beneficial to all.

    I enjoyed reading your post.

    Thanks Meg.

    That’s great if you can get a professional photographer to take your photos. Although it may be an expense that some people do not want to incur the quality of the photos are typically better than we can take ourselves.

    Either way, virtual tours are a powerful marketing tool and should be added to your listing marketing plan, for yourself or your VA to put together.

    Thanks for stopping by Meg.
