Renters Means RUN

For the most part, renters are not motivated to clean up..after all, if the house sells, they will have to move.

We were called in to do a 360 virtual tour of a home occupied by renters. It was trashed. I recommended a slide show because a 360 would be unacceptable of any area of the house.

I helped my client schlep tables and trash from room to room so I could take photos of the house.

The house looked great in the slide show.

That glow I felt from helping someone out dissipated when another agent from the same office called and wanted me to work miracles on another house occupied by renters.

Live and learn.

A Little “Bread” and Breakfast

The 360 tour was time consuming, as I had to return another day and shoot some pictures of a wedding to include in the virtual tour. The extra time was definitely worth it; as I found out to my surprise, that the owner is also a Board member with Virginia’s Bed & Breakfast Association.

More Buyers with 360 Virtual Tours

In a vacation and retirement destination such as the Florida Panhandle, many potential buyers will be from outside the local area. Lifelong vacationers, retirees, military, and even overseas investors may decide to purchase here. As a virtual tour provider, I am always preaching the benefit of on-line advertising of real estate. It is always good when a client confirms my worth. I’ve been told of several instances when a 360 virtual tour I did helped sell a home.

I have also been told of a couple of times when a virtual tour was the deciding factor in the selling of a home. There are instances when a buyer’s circumstances merit them deciding on a property to purchase before they can physically visit the area. I have found no better tool to help in that decision than, a good Realtor, and of course, an exceptional virtual tour.
