Take a virtual property tour by Heather Hilder on April 3, 2019 Virtually Touring Estate Agency is currently experiencing a time of great change as a result of innovations in customer service coupled with the use of some exciting new technologies. One of these technologies, the on-line virtual tour, is having a profound effect on the whole property moving experience and is already being regarded by our customers as a key factor in reducing some of the stresses of moving. Most homeowners would agree that they bought their property because “it just felt right” when they viewed it. However, it is very difficult for traditional property marketing to convey this “feeling”, no matter how careful or enthusiastic the photographer might have been. So today, we like to feature a virtual tour facility of our clients’ properties on our website whereby prospective purchasers can easily view a 360 degree panoramic view of the principal rooms in the property. The benefits to Buyer and Seller alike are huge. Buyers can begin to get some of the “feel” of a property in context, which helps them not only to rule out unsuitable homes, saving them time, but also “rule-in” the ‘possibles’. Then, once they have actually visited the property they can return to the virtual tour to refresh their memory or check out a specific point. The agent can also talk a remote purchaser through a property to ensure its suitability at an early stage. Virtual tours can also weed out unsuitable buyers, thereby saving sellers time, hassle and heartache, whilst simultaneously elevating the calibre of the property. We were one of the first to offer this facility in Sussex with our on-line virtual tour on a new-build property in the early 2000s, demonstrating our commitment to excellence. All our tours are professionally recorded by experts in the field.
