3 Reasons You MUST Offer a Virtual Tour When Selling Your Home

Posted by Stuart Neal on Monday, November 23rd, 2020 at 10:01am.

1.  Maximum audience

At the time of writing we are in the middle of the Covid 19 pandemic here in Edmonton. Most buyers are hesitant to view homes, especially seller occupied homes unless they really have to buy a home soon. If you offer a virtual tour, ALL home buyers can take a look around your listing from the comfort of their current home. In many cases buyers are demanding to see a tour BEFORE they will agree to and look at your home.

2.  Convenience

Many potential home buyers are time poor. Offering the chance to conveniently shop your home could be the difference between it making the short list and not making the shortlist. Give yourself an advantage. It also means that you can demonstrate your home to many buyers without the inconvenience of having you leave your home each time.

3. Set Yourself Apart 

If your listing provides buyers with a VIRTUAL TOUR and floor plans, you will be regarded much more favorably as buyers sift and sort through listings on their preferred website. 

Discounters like Purple Bricks, 2% Realty, 1% Realty and most traditional REALTORS do not include virtual tours or floor plans in their programs due to the expense of purchasing these tools. Perhaps the old adage ‘you get what you pay for’ really does apply here. 

It may be wise to find yourself a service provider that not only gives you value, but one that actually provides the tools you need to succeed in a tough market.
