COVID-19 may have changed the way Real Estate is sold for good
Real Estate has always been an evolving industry, but there are some trends that have been a bit more stubborn to abandon than others.
Over the past few years, more people than ever have started their home search online. But even in today's digital world, a real estate purchase ultimately involves leaving your home and walking through a property before deciding to purchase or rent.
However, thanks to COVID-19 keeping people confined to their homes, home buyers, sellers, tenants, landlords, and real estate professionals have recently been forced to get creative when it comes to showing and viewing properties.
There are numerous ways that agents are virtually showing homes. Some of the popular avenues like Facebook Live, Facetime, Skype, and Zoom allow an agent to tour the house while the person on the other end watches and converses with the agent.
The game-changer has been the virtual walkthrough. These 3D home tours have been around for a few years now, mostly as a novelty for luxury homes. Now it seems that novelty has become a necessity.
A 3D Showcase™ creates an accurate and immersive digital copy of the property. People can sit on their couch and walk through a property without ever stepping outside.
The 3D virtual walkthrough allows people to tour the home as if they were really in the house. You can peek into a bedroom, feel the flow of walking from the kitchen to the den, and look at details such as appliances.
Not only is it neat, but it is effective --even more effective than actual open houses. Agents who have begun using these 3D walkthroughs have reported astounding numbers. On one of our listings there have been over 500 walkthroughs in just two weeks.
With the uncertainty of the current pandemic and the public's love for all things online and digital, I truly believe virtual home tours are a necessity and here to stay in today’s real estate market.
