Virtual Tours Shape Real Estate Industry

The power of the Internet is modeling the structure of the real estate industry. According to many different sources most prospective home buyers start their home search on the Internet.

Some sellers are reluctant to pay the fee that companies like REMAX, Century 21, and Coldwell Banker charge for their services. The FSBO solution also has difficulties despite the flourishing of web pages that allow them to expose their homes in a similar way that the MLS does for real estate agents. Pricing issues and contract problems can tie up a sale for months.

The importance of 360 virtual tours as part of home selling solution is growing. Virtual tours not only allow customers to visit the house from the convenience of their own computer, but it helps the real estate agent that provides this service to the seller.

A virtual tour does not guarantee an automatic sale as not all people viewing the tour are ready to buy. Around 95 % are just looking for the correct price and will not be buying in the next 3 to 12 months.

If the agent can present themselves well to all visitors, give them a place to sign up to receive drip information, then they can be transformed into customers.

Commercial Real Estate Virtual Tours

When we think in terms of real estate virtual tours the first thought is probably a residential homes. However, there is a huge market out there in the commercial sector as well. Whether it be an existing building or a planned development, there are numerous opportunities for a provider to create virtual tours or 3D floorplans in commercial real estate.

One of the most important selling points you can make to a potential client is letting them know that you will be using LoopNet.com as your major marketing site to showcase the 360 virtual tour online. For those of you who are not familiar with LoopNet.com, it is the key site to market on for commercial real estate for sale as Realtor.com is for the residential sector.

You can set up a free account on the site just like you would on any other free site that you market your business or properties on like Postlets.com, Craigslist or Kijiji.com. It is imperative that you mention this to a prospect and that they understand the way their property is going to be advertised across the Web. In doing this you are almost guaranteed to secure more bids on commercial real estate virtual tours.

Yes, these type of virtual tours are totally different from any kind of residential tour you may be doing, but aren’t all homes different as well? Get online and see how other providers are portraying these properties in their tours. Be creative and look at it from a buyer’s point of view…what would you want to see and how would you want it presented?

This is just another market that RTV providers have out there that can help add to your pocketbook and portfolio. Don’t be afraid to venture into new fields. There are thousands of these types of properties for sale. All you need to do is promote your services to the seller in the proper way to get the deal.

Virtual Tour Lead from RTV turned into my first Tour

My husband and I started a virtual tour company in Port Ludlow Washington, and we were in the process of training, practicing, reading and overall sorting through the marketing material to get a handle on what this whole business is about when out of the blue I received an email from a real estate agent.

She had called RTV and they referred her to us. I am so glad that she emailed instead of calling. I might have been tongue-tied on our first order!

We both looked over our calendars, chose a day, and hoped for clear skies. After all, this is the Pacific Northwest. I woke up to sunny skies yesterday and left the house to do my first paid virtual tour shoot. I had done another tour, but it was a freebie for a broker friend.

Getting there entailed a 45 minute drive, a 30 minute ferry ride and then Terry the agent picked me up and drove me to the listing. Again, I was fortunate. The house and grounds were immaculate. Not a thing out of place, dogs under control, no clutter and good lighting.

I went to work immediately, with Terry and her clients staying out of my way. Having been a real estate agent (among other things) for several years, I know what to look for. And as a photographer, I have a good eye for angles, light etc. I started upstairs and worked my way down, then moved outside. The hardest part was making sure the tripod and camera were level. In 25 minutes I was done, we loaded back into the car and I caught the ferry back to Port Townsend and drove home.

I would have liked to have had time to check my work while on-site, but the ferries run infrequently so I wasn’t able to do that. When I got home, I downloaded everything and was happy and relieved, as I worked through the photo stitching software, to see that everything worked out fine.

I am really happy to have the RTV support staff behind me as I go through this learning curve. I had couple of questions and each time I called, received phone calls back within half an hour so was able to publish the virtual tour with no hiccups.

Terry loves it, I know her clients will too, and so do I.

Tucson Arizona real estate Agent Tamara Varga stated, “The benefits my clients receive from a 24/7 virtual tour open house are so amazing I could not imagine doing a listing without these tools. Just some of the benefits my clients love are having only serious buyers come through their property because the virtual tour weeds out the less serious buyers. In return only serious buyers want showings creating less foot traffic through their homes and thus less wear and tear on their flooring and less stress from always having to have their house in pristine open house condition.”

Arizona virtual real estate has partnered with RTV because they have provided superior technology, training, and marketing. Our favorite feature of the #1 rated virtual tour software is the On-Demand Tour Traffic Reporting. This technology allows homeowners and agents to effectively monitor the source and quantity of interest in a tour and its individual scenes.

Every responsible business operating today should have a “go green” strategy. Agents that desire to “go green” as a strategy for their real estate business will appeal to clients because being more efficient and reducing your impact has become very important to many people, and those people will choose businesses who strive towards their same ideals. Using virtual tours and floor plans as a part of listing a property will efficiently deliver so much information about a listing that clients will respect you for saving their time and gas to travel to the property.
