Virtual Property Tours a Raging Success and They're Here To Stay

As the property industry gets back on its feet following lockdown, virtual tours are proving to be a huge success and are predicted to become the 'new norm' when it comes to moving house. 

Agents across the country have been embracing virtual tours and have been busy filming their properties for rent and to sell in an attempt to help buyers and renters that need to make a move. 

Rightmove has even taken the step of adding a widget to their website to highlight properties that have virtual tours available, and, they are reporting huge spikes in interest for property where a video can be viewed.

"Virtual Tours are proving to be hugely popular with tenants in particular. The virtual tours we produce aren't particularly a glossy advertisement - we're not on television! The tours are factual and we are not trying to hide things we think people won't like. If tenants are making the decision to move somewhere, the video tour needs to show them what they are moving in to without the rose-tinted glasses on"

At Granger & Oaks we are also producing floorplans that sit alongside the tour to help homemovers really understand the size of rooms and the layout of the house. Viewers are then encouraged to visit the area so they have a good idea of the locale, and we follow this up with a Zoom call to answer any questions they may have and discuss the letting process in detail.  

"We think that virtual tours are here to stay, and they are proving to be real game-changer. It's not unrealistic to see video tours becoming as important as bright clear photographs when it comes to attracting homemovers."

If you are looking to let your property, video tours are a huge aspect to consider. In fact, as we head in to the busy summer months with lockdown still at the forefront of peoples minds, video tours should be an essential, not an option.
