How virtual property tours work
A virtual tour could be either:
- a collection of 360-degree photos put together in a click walkthrough giving a buyer a full 360-degree view of every room OR
- walkthrough video, showing a buyer as if he or she were walking through themselves.
This is providing the buyer with a better perspective before inspecting the home physically.
Virtual Tours and marketing your home for sale
Virtual tours are a useful marketing tool for a seller to showcase their home to a prospective buyer.
Here is why:
- The majority of buyers start their property research online – virtual tours can offer a sneak peek before they commit to inspect, saving time and money.
- For sellers, virtual tours may be a point of difference, helping them to engage with the right buyer, potentially qualifying that buyer more before they inspect the home.
- Virtual tours could potentially assist in a quicker sale.
- The virtual tours can be particularly useful for overseas buyers as well, as they may not be in a position to inspect in person.
- With recent COVID-19 restrictions, virtual tours became an essential marketing piece to help sell a house successfully.
- 95% of buyers will still inspect the home physically before making an offer. Even top quality photos and the best virtual tours may still hide imperfections that can only be seen at a physical inspection.
Benefits of a Virtual Property Tour
- Provides a more realistic view of the property from the comfort of your home, moving around at your own pace. The buyer also gains a better perspective of the property before a physical inspection.
- It qualifies the buyer more and reduces time wasters.
- Marketing point of difference in the competitive real estate market.
- A 360-degree view offers a full range perspective, including overhead and floor.
- Suitable for interstate investors, overseas buyers or anyone unable to come to an open home at a given time.
