360- Degree Virtual Tours
The new way to market properties in 2021 is to combine Photography with a 360- Degree Virtual Tour. This allows the viewer to virtually walk through and see the property from a 360 view. It's the NEW INDUSTRY STANDARD.
IF A PICTURE PAINTS A 1000 WORDS, A
360-DEGREE VIRTUAL TOUR PAINTS A MILLION!!!
When you combine Photography & 360-Degree Virtual Tours you are giving the viewer the true experience! 360-Degree Virtual Tours are an excellent feature in order to show an agent's buyer around a property from the comfort of their own home or wherever they are. However, they are more than just a feature they are actually a solution.
So why are 360-Degree Virtual Tours such a revolutionary tool in helping estate agents to sell properties?
Well firstly, there really is nothing more engaging than a 360-Degree Virtual Tour! Buyers spend more than two-thirds of their time online when searching for a property before they actually buy or rent. By providing them with more information than ever, they are better enabled to make an informed decision and agents can then pre-qualify their interest levels.
Viewers can rotate & view the 360-Degree Virtual Tour freely & this allows you to show off how the rooms look in detail.
360-Degree Virtual Tours can be viewed from a computer or smartphone.
You can eliminate the problem of customers who say "I don't know if I want the property unless I view it, & I'm busy at the moment I would have to check my schedule." Because NOW they can check the property Photos out along with a 360-Degree Virtual Tour that covers every corner of the property. It's a true
24-7 OPEN HOUSE!!
High Resolution, High-Quality HDR Viewing Experience
360-Degree Virtual Tours benefit the agent by saving them money,
time, & a lot of hassle.
When marketing a property the two Industry Standards are Professional Photos & a Virtual Tour. Virtual Tours can be either a 360- Degree Virtual Tour or a Video Walkthrough. Besides having your professional photos of the property, they also have your 360-Degree Virtual Tour which is intended to be your FIRST SHOWING. So the purpose is not to eliminate your in-person viewings, but merely to ensure that these second, physical viewings are qualified. By streamlining the time spent searching & narrowing down properties to view, buyers will only plan to view those in which they are most interested. This also relieves the agent of potentially up to eight hours per client, which can add up to a vast increase in efficiency on other pressing tasks & in return increase productivity.
360-Degree Virtual Tours enhances Value in the Agent
Let's face it the Real Estate Industry is forever growing with new Agents.
What sets you apart from the other agents?
Sellers ONLY WANT the agent that is going to do what it takes to market & sell their home.
So what is that? Well, the industry standard is Professional Photos which include Aerial Drone Property Images, Property Exterior & Interior Images & if there are any amenities add Images of those as well. Along with Professional Photography sellers & buyers want to see either a 360-Degree Virtual Tour or a Video Walkthrough Tour. Those are the tools you should have in your Agent Profile. These tools have sealed the deal for many agents. Which has also helped them gain more & more Clients. Clients want to work with Agents that have value & bring the best tools to the table to market & sell their property.
360-Degree Virtual Tours enhances the value of the agent. It helps set you apart from the competition. With other agents being slower adaptors, you will get ahead of your competition. 360-Degree Virtual Tours are currently a massive advantage. Essentially, there is no reason you wouldn't want to get your property in from of the largest possible audience!
WHY SHOULD I GET A 360-DEGREE VIRTUAL TOUR??
Buyers are viewing properties online & you ONLY have ONE CHANCE to wow them &
9 times out of 10 they have a lot of properties to choose from. So make yours STAND OUT!!! If you want to keep up with constantly- evolving technology, then you must have the Industry Standards & that is Photography, 360-Degree Virtual Tours & or Videography. Something cited by NAR (National Association of Realtors)
360-Degree Virtual Tours can be even more vital in areas with a lot of out-of-state buyers. (THAT IS SOUTH CAROLINA)
More 360-Degree Virtual Tours should be done in areas that are highly competitive. (THAT IS SOUTH CAROLINA)
Does every property need a 360-Degree Virtual Tour?
In my opinion, not every property needs a 360-Degree Virtual Tour.
In some properties, it would be overkill if you have great photos done by us
Southern Belle Real Estate Photography LLC. BUT, during this pandemic, it has really helped boost sales for properties when buyers couldn't view the property in person. So it is really up to the homeowner & agent on what they think it will take to get the property the exposure it needs to sell.
