Virtual Tours: First impressions
We are always keen to ensure we are innovative to best serve our clients. When it comes to marketing property, first impressions count so we have invested in the latest technology to create fully immersive virtual tours of the homes we bring to market.
Our 360 degree cameras can scan every inch of a room in just a few seconds, creating a 3D simulation that you can walk through using your smart phone, tablet or computer. ( Here are a couple of links to example tours ‘The Old Blacksmiths’ and ‘The Old Tannery’)
Even pre-COVID19 the first touchpoint in the buyer journey is an online, where an immersive 3D tour can afford a property an impactful first impression.
Our virtual tours allow buyers to get a real feel for a property without physically entering it, helping sellers to minimise contact with other households and hopefully also by minimising the disruption to you. Virtual Tours are intended to be a ‘first viewing’, so the purpose is not to eliminate your in-person viewings, but merely to ensure that these second, physical viewings are those who have a genuine interest in purchasing.By streamlining the time spent searching and narrowing down properties to view, buyers will only plan viewings for those in which they are most interested.
Those buyers who stay some distance away for example, may no longer find it necessary to make time-consuming journeys to visit properties that they have only seen in photos. With virtual tours, they are now able to experience representations of the properties in a more immersive, true-to-life way, without leaving their home, and without entering yours.
Virtual tours are also a huge benefit to those with restricted mobility, or other issues that make it difficult to view properties in person (such as work or family commitments).
Visiting numerous properties when trying to find a new home can be time-consuming and confusing for some, and even more so for those with special needs or requirements. An individual can now experience a prospective home without having to travel there, until they know that it is a property that they are interested in. Virtual tours also help individuals to ascertain the accessibility of the property and decide whether it will or can meet their needs. Evidently this will also benefit the sellers because the buyers’ ability to view a property remotely, widens the scope of buyers that may take an interest in each property.
We have recently set up our own Dumfries & Galloway property for sale channel on Vimeo at https://vimeo.com/channels/dgpropertyforsale which shows a brief intro of each tour.
