Real Estate Agents should be thinking about technological solutions now more than ever.
We are experiencing a major shift in how real estate agents do business. There is no better time to leverage the many available alternative marketing tools to stay connected with clients. Agents are now expected to offer alternative marketing opportunities for their buyers and sellers such as video tours and live-streaming to virtually tour a property.
Let your clients know that you will continue to service them and can continue to market their home using an array of available technology!
Offer to schedule virtual appointments using video chat tools with clients and qualified buyers. Consider utilizing one of the following applications to stay connected with buyers, sellers, and fellow real estate agents:
- Google Hangouts
- Facebook Messenger Video
VIRTUAL SHOWINGS, 3D TOURS, & LIVE VIDEO
Virtual tours provide a way for buyers to continue their property search from the comfort of their own homes. Set up a Zoom meeting with your buyers and share the meeting link with them prior to the scheduled virtual showing. Hosting live, interactive virtual showings allows agents to take a client through a house room-by-room and stop to point out features that are particularly important to that specific potential homebuyer.
Immoviewer offers video tours – their tour platform provides a “Live Tour” feature that allows agents to share tour links with potential clients and control movement through the tour, or to give tour control to the consumer to create a virtual showing.
FloorPlanOnline helps you hold virtual showings anytime through an easy to use point and click FloorPlan Tour with an exclusive 3D space designer or a 360 WalkThrough Tour in select markets.
Utilizing tools such as virtual reality home tours, 3D house staging, and real-time virtual showings helps put potential homebuyers in a home without anyone having to leave their home! Consider offering your clients 3D interactive property scans, and use virtual staging to showcase a property.
Matterport is a reputable and cutting-edge virtual tour company that uses a top-of-the-line camera to award owners with an immersive 3D showcase, unlimited photos, videos, floor plans, and virtual reality. With Matterport, prospective buyers can bring subject properties to their mobile app or desktop, all from the comforts of their own home.
