Everything you need to know about Virtual Viewings

July 2020

Helping customers view a property safely is a prime concern of estate and letting agents. Virtual viewings – where a property is showcased over the internet – are a great way to help buyers or renters save time and make that initial decision on whether or not a property is suitable for them.

In fact, virtual viewings have proven to be so popular with would-be buyers and renters that some are willing to put in an offer on a home without conducting a physical viewing at all. At a time when we are all being encouraged to stay home as often as we can, and when our most vulnerable may not be able to leave the house to see a property in person, virtual viewings are a great way forward.

How do Virtual Viewings actually work?

Virtual viewings are a means of viewing properties without leaving the comfort of home. They are convenient for a potential buyer or tenant and mean the seller can open up their listing to a much wider audience. 

Video Trailers

These video tours give would-be buyers and renters a better sense of the property. They provide a simple walkthrough of each room through a series of clips that have been expertly put together. It’s a great way to get a better sense of space, layout and the general feel of a home. Please note that Video Trailers do not include an agent on hand to answer questions and queries.

360 Online Tour

This gives potential buyers and renters a 3D walkthrough of each room, enabling them to fully explore a property; entering and exiting rooms, and digitally walking through outdoor spaces and gardens. The 360 online viewing creates a visual image of a property using accurate measurements of rooms. It even allows zooming in and out of properties to give viewers more control and a realistic experience.
