As people practice social distancing, most open houses are on hold, and in-person showings are limited. For home sellers in the era of the coronavirus, showing off your home to potential buyers seems impossible! Fortunately, with a little help from modern technology and top real estate agent, Alex Khodadad, this isn’t the case! You can still reach potential buyers and show a home in the best light—through a virtual tour.
Alex and other agents across the country are providing an in-depth look at properties using tools like FaceTime or Zoom to host these live tours and open houses without compromising anyone’s health.
Real estate agents were using virtual tours before COVID-19 as a unique marketing tool. Now, online tours are more important than ever before, since they are an easy way for buyers to view a home without physically entering the property.
How Virtual Tours Work
- Virtual tours offer home buyers a remote, video-enabled walk-through of a property.
- Virtual tours are recommended by the National Association of Realtors® as a way to avoid face-to-face contact while marketing homes during the crisis.
Types of Virtual Tours
- Sellers or real estate agents use their smartphone camera to record a video as they walk through the home, showing off the property.
- A more interactive option is to livestream a one-on-one showing with the buyers, via FaceTime or other video streaming app. This will give potential buyers the chance to ask questions to the seller or have them direct the camera to a specific area of the property.
