Get a Virtual Tour of your Real Estate Office!

Many real estate professionals love the additional visibility and customer engagement that detailed and stunning virtual tours can bring to their listings. But what about creating a virtual tour for your real estate office? You may not have considered this option, but there are several advantages to letting potential customers tour your real estate office online.

Help your customers feel comfortable
Many home buyers and other real estate customers, particularly first time buyers, are apprehensive about going into a real estate office. They might think they’ll be pushed toward a hard sell, or that they could get taken advantage of if they don’t know much about how real estate buying works.

A virtual tour can introduce potential customers to your office environment, and reassure them that they have nothing to fear. You can showcase your main office or reception area, as well as any agents’ offices, and even feature interviews with your agency staff members. This puts customers at ease and helps them feel like they know you before you ever meet.

Show off your tech savvy
There’s no escaping the fact that real estate involves paperwork. For this reason, some home buyers believe real estate offices haven’t entered the digital age yet, and they’re reluctant to deal with a more “traditional” setting.

Having a virtual tour of your real estate office shows that your agency is keeping up with the latest in technology. Any RTV virtual tour provider can even use their virtual tour software with an integrated area map that can include links to your various online listings. The possibilities are endless with your office virtual tour.

Preparing for your real estate office virtual tour
With any virtual tour for a property, you’ll want your real estate office looking great for photographing and filming. Use the same home staging tips you’d employ for your properties to set up your real estate office for a successful virtual tour.

Of course, you’ll want to show potential customers all of your main areas and individual offices. You can also offer “behind the scenes” looks at your working areas, include photos or footage of the surrounding community, and much more.

Virtual tours are a great way to bring more customers in to your real estate office, whether they’re buying or selling a property. If you’re interested in having a virtual tour created for your office, contact RTV today to learn more about our services and we’ll connect you with your local virtual tour provider.

Five Virtual Tour Tips

For real estate properties, the main goal of a virtual tour is to sell a home or business. And the better looking and more informative your virtual tour is, the easier it will be for the tour to do its job of selling a property.

Whether you’re a home seller or real estate agent using virtual tour software to market your property, or a virtual tour service provider looking for ways to improve your presentations, these tips will help you create stunning virtual tours that sell.

Vary your photo types
A virtual tour that simply shows room shot after room shot can be pretty boring. Instead, take multiple pictures of each room from different angles, with different zoom areas, and choose the best of those pictures to include in your virtual tour. You can even vary the number of photos used for each area—such as including several shots of the living room with fireplace, balcony, and cathedral ceilings, but only one or two of the standard-issue bedrooms.

Include surrounding amenities
While you’re taking pictures, don’t forget to snap some shots of the community and the best places in the neighborhood. People who are buying a new home or business want to know about the area they’ll be living in, and if you can show them it’s a great neighborhood, you’ll grab their interest.

Put your best foot forward
With a virtual tour, you don’t want to save the best for last. Begin by showing off the remodeled bathroom, or the gourmet kitchen—whatever features are most sellable. Another approach is to start the virtual tour sequence with the exterior and grounds, and then move to the most desirable features of the home or business.

Add extras to your virtual tour
Stunning photos and video are the heart of a virtual tour, but additional information can really sell a property. Don’t forget to add descriptive text to your images, and explain features that might not be immediately apparent from the image. You can also include a professional voiceover that delivers even more information to viewers.

Distribute your virtual tour widely
YouTube isn’t the only place to showcase virtual tours. The more people that see your virtual tour, the better your chances of selling—so make sure to post the final video to your own website, as well as Facebook, real estate sites like Trulia, and even Pinterest.

Remember, RTV’s virtual tour software kits make it easy to create stunning virtual tours with features like captions and image text, voiceovers, interactive floor plans, and more.

Contagious Selling

After months on the road for our national virtual tour company, we are finally getting to spend a week home and while we are here, we are going to have a chance to work with two new Realtors with our Quincy, IL virtual tour company.  I was just confirming details with one of them today and she explained why she chose us.  It seems that when we talked about working together, I told her that I was excited to be working with her.

If you know me, then that’s not a big surprise.  In fact, I don’t even remember saying it but it’s certainly true.  We have such a passion for what we do and I get giddy when I get to introduce our virtual tour services to someone new.  We love that we get to make a living doing something we love but we also honestly believe that what we do makes a huge impact on the lives of the people we serve.

So many of our clients are repeat customers that we’ve done business with for years and while we value and appreciate that business, dealing with a new client re-invigorates and re-energizes me.  As I get to tell someone new about what we do and how we do it, I sell myself all over again!  In addition to offering spectacular photography, we also get to provide marketing assistance.  We aren’t just in the home or business to take pictures for our virtual tour business but we are in the home to meet new people, make new connections and share our experience and insights.

So YES, I am excited about working with this new client to provide real estate virtual tours.  I am excited about getting to photograph a 7,500 square foot historic home in our beautiful home town of Quincy, IL.  I am excited that I get to work with my husband every single day.  I am excited that my mother in law does such a great job with our local real estate virtual tour business that we are able to travel all over the country doing what we love.

But mostly, I am excited that my passion for what we do is something that is contagious.  In fact, this client told me that the reason she referred me to a fellow realtor was because of that one statement, “I am excited to be working with you”.  She said that she is going to start telling her clients those words because after all, what could be more exciting than getting to do something you love!
