With constantly changing restrictions and regulations on business, travel, and even everyday life, the way we buy, sell, and even see homes has changed drastically in the last few weeks. Fortunately, modern tech—like virtual tours—makes it easier than ever to get up close and personal… right from the comfort of your couch. And now, we’ve got a way for you to find all the Triangle homes with virtual tours in one spot.
What Is a Virtual Tour?
Let’s take a step back. What exactly is a “virtual tour”? For some of us, this might be a familiar term. But for many, the concept of virtually exploring a home might be a little foreign. There are a few different variations of virtual tours—some may be video, others still-frame—but both provide a cohesive representation of a home’s interior.
Virtual tours are incredibly beneficial in remote real estate because they simulate the in-person touring experience.
Why shop Triangle homes with virtual tours?
Virtual tours have become especially important during this public health crisis. Though real estate is considered an “essential business” here in the Triangle, it still presents a risk to both buyers and sellers to schedule an in-person tour.
Virtual tours can keep buyers safely at home while offering a similar “tour” experience.
How virtual tours benefit sellers
If you’re selling a home right now, having a virtual tour is pretty much a must! Not only will it offer you the ability to show your home without having to welcome anyone (and their germs!) inside, it’ll likely make your home a lot more appealing to buyers shopping from their homes.
In fact, according to research by Zillow, homes with virtual tours get 87% more views, are saved 50% more, and sell 10% faster than homes without virtual tours. And that was before the coronavirus outbreak.
Imagine how those numbers will change as real estate shifts more and more to being a virtual, online experience.
