Selling New Construction Virtual Tours

I am a Realtor in the Orlando Florida area and work with buyers and seller. I use the RTV’s Fusion virtual tour software on all my listings if possible and find them extremely valuable when it comes to incurring showings.

I know of a number of occasions where a potential buyer called his agent after viewing the virtual tour of my listing so that they could arrange for a showing. These days agents have lost somewhat of a control which listings are getting on the showing list. Thanks to Realtor.com and other IDX listing sites buyers have access to listings and virtual tours. Good virtual tours like RTV’s Fusion virtual tours get you definitely more showings and increased exposure in the market place. However, make sure the house is cleaned and tidy and shows nice for the full benefit.

I sold recently a new construction home in a vacation resort community to an European couple. They told me that they have a few friends that might be interested in something similar. I went to the builders model home and did a virtual tour of the two models. I posted a link on my website and sent the link to those tours to our client. Within 8 weeks I now have another vacation home under contract. They bought it sight unseen. The virtual tour and their friend testimonial was enough to make the deal. It really helps to convey a sense of space. I gave the builders rep the link to the non branded virtual tour so they also can use it to send it to their interested buyers. It really helped me to build a good relationship with the sales staff.

I am now considering adding more 360 tours of new construction models to my website. It will help me to capture more of the second home business in the Central Florida Region. RTV is the right partner to develop a powerful virtual tour representation that is much more than the usual boring slide shows that other companies try to sell as virtual tours. I am glad that I signed up with RTV! They truly help me to become a better marketing expert. Thanks guys – keep up the good work!
