Real Estate Agents-Online Marketing is Key

Real Estate Agents are quickly learning that establishing an online reputation could make them or break them in today’s market. The days where families want to drive from house to house are long gone. With children schedules to coincide and gas prices quickly rising once again, shopping for houses online using virtual tours has become extremely commonplace.

When I first opened SLP Virtual Tours, my best friend was ecstatic. She told me that her and her husband wouldn’t even consider buying a home that didn’t have a tour. They spent a few hours a week online reviewing houses on the market that had virtual tours. They narrowed them down to their three favorites and then began calling real estate agents. From the three, they picked “The ONE!” and live in it still today. And what was the exact quote of my 32 year old best friend with a husband and four children? “If a real estate agent gets a listing and doesn’t think it’s worthy of a virtual tour, then why would it be worthy of my time to see in person and spend our money on?”

By using virtual tours on every tour, real estate agents are quickly seeing a rise in their client lists. Using a top leading virtual tour company such as Philadelphia’s SLP Virtual Tours-the real estate agent’s reputation gets catapulted into a “who to use” real estate agent status. The agent’s photograph is included on every tour as well as contact information and company logo. It’s a surefire bet for a real estate agent to “Brand” themselves in today’s ultra-competitive market. And the tours offer top notch conveniences for each viewer including music, crisp clear images that rotate 360 degrees, with a zoom in and out feature that allow viewers to zoom in and out on the fine architectural details of a property.

Not all virtual tour companies out there offer top quality tours. It’s a buyer beware market. In fact, the newest game on the net is companies claiming to be virtual tour companies when in fact, they only make up a slideshow of still photos. There is no 360 degree “spins” that modern technology gives us and that consumers demand. That is why trusting virtual tour providers in the Real Tour Vision Network is imperative for a real estate agent who understands the importance of online presence and reputation. The tours are uploaded quickly, the viewing window is large, and they are true to life. Virtual Tours will get an agent every listing that comes their way. Consumers want to be in the “now” of technology and expect their properties to be listed with the top marketing pros who will save them money in the long run. The tours help to sell the homes quickly and warrant to be placed in every marketing budget of every property.
