The Benefits of Virtual Property Tours

The Benefits of Virtual Property Tours

Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, more homebuyers now want to see virtual tours when conducting their property search online - demand which has increased further under the current lockdown.

The health and well-being of our staff and customers is our number one priority. In line with government guidelines, we always recommend that prospective buyers make use of our virtual viewing service, before booking a viewing in person, and there are lots of benefits in doing this – for both vendor and buyer.

Safety First

Here at The Property Centre, we use a state-of-the-art mappable virtual tour system. Just like Google street view, where you can ‘see’ a road through 360°, the tours we create enable buyers to navigate a vendor’s property, room by room, from every angle.

Whilst nothing is ever as good as viewing a property in person, taking a virtual tour of a place is a great start. It gives buyers a real sense of the feel and dimensions of a home, without physically entering it. It then qualifies the more serious buyers, who proceed to book a viewing in person, helping to keep both vendor and buyer safe in that initial searching stage.

Remote Viewing Service

Whilst a virtual viewing is great, the in-depth knowledge that a good negotiator can share with a buyer is invaluable when viewing in person. With our Giraffe360 virtual tour system, our experienced negotiators can “accompany” buyers on their virtual viewing via video chat, highlighting the unique features of that property and being able to answer any queries, there and then.

Buyers - take the tour before booking the viewing

Virtual tours give buyers the opportunity to shortlist their choice of properties quickly and efficiently, without having to leave the safety of their own home.

Exceptional HDR photography

When it comes to selling your home, great imagery is essential too. The Giraffe360 cutting-edge camera creates outstanding HDR images which make any home stand out from the crowd.

Accurate floorplans

In addition to virtual tours and high-resolution photography, our technology also uses built-in lasers and sensors to automatically produce an accurate floor plan with reliably precise measurements. As a key part of seeing a property’s potential, a great floor plan is essential when trying to sell any home.
