Virtual tours are an excellent feature when it comes to real estate marketing in order to show an agent’s buyers around a property from the comfort of their own home. However, they are more than just a feature; they are actually a solution. So why are virtual tours such a revolutionary tool in helping estate agents to sell properties?
Well firstly, there really is nothing more engaging than a virtual tour.
Buyers spend more than two thirds of their time online when searching for property, before they actually buy or rent. By providing them with more information than ever, they are better enabled to make an informed decision and agents can then pre-qualify their interest levels.
To view the virtual tour: Click and drag to view room/area.

They 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 qualified.
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. This also relieves the agent of potentially up to eight hours per client, which can add up to a vast increase in efficiency on other pressing tasks, and in return increase productivity.
It enhances the value of the online hosting substantially, as an agency that sets itself apart from competition by offering this extra dimension is one which will see improved brand perception from both renters, buyers and sellers. With other agencies being slower adopters, you would get ahead of your competition. Virtual tours are currently a massive advantage. Essentially, there is no reason you wouldn’t want to get your property in front of the largest possible audience!
Property agents can now eliminate viewings where their client goes to see the property with no intention of purchasing. 80% of first viewings don’t lead to a second. And so this forward-thinking method of doing the first viewing as an interactive virtual tour, will not only get the agent more instructions due to the fact that it is innovative and exciting for buyers, but it will also allow agents more time to go after those instructions.
Overseas clients for example, may no longer find it necessary to take time-consuming journeys to visit properties that they have merely seen in photos. With virtual tours, they are now able to experience representations of the properties you are marketing in a more immersive, true-to-life way, without leaving their home.
Estate agent research shows that 75% of the interviewed potential real estate buyers stated that they preferred interactive virtual tours over normal photographs and that these tours influenced their purchase decision.
We allow our users to use our software completely online through their own private online portal without the latter needing to download anything and which enables you to customise your virtual tour until it is exactly as you want it as well as brand it with your own logo and contact info. This is a major advantage over the previous providers who required their clients to download large files and have advanced IT skills.
It is also easy for agents to integrate the tours into their websites or right move as well as even texting or WhatsApping their users the tour link.
Visiting numerous properties when seeking a new home is time-consuming and draining for everybody, and even more so for those with disabilities and special needs. An individual can now experience a prospective home without having to travel there, until they are convinced that it is a property that they are interested in. Virtual tours also help individuals to ascertain the accessibility of the property and to, therefore, decide whether it will meet their needs. Evidently this will also benefit the estate agent because the buyers’ ability to view a property remotely, widens the scope of buyers that may take an interest in each property.
They won’t have as much disturbance and disruption to their normal routine, as less buyers will be viewing their property in person. Now buyers can get an accurate look online first. When deciding on who to sell their house with, this is going to be an important factor for the vender, as not only does the addition of virtual tours lead to more qualified viewings of their properties, but these tours also increase the likelihood of a quicker sale, due to increased interest from buyers.
The seller’s house can also be tidy at any time of day online, and the buyer can see the property’s interior and exterior in the daylight during a virtual tour, no matter what time of day it really is. They may not otherwise be able to do this easily, with work schedules and so on. Statistically 60% of viewings are done on evenings and weekends. Now buyers won’t lose as much of their free time, or have to view the property in the dark when they’d need to come back in the daylight anyway.
