Before putting your home on the market, consider having a high-quality virtual reality tour created to showcase the property. Particularly, if your home is large or you are selling to international buyers, a virtual reality tour will help sell the property. Here’s why. With a virtual reality tour, you open the doors of your home to potential buyers wherever they are. They take a look inside and form an attachment to your property before they even visit it in person. Compared to the average photos used to promote most properties, your virtual reality tour will catch the attention of potential buyers and draw them in.
You might be wondering why more homes aren’t promoted with virtual reality tours. If you were to ask, you’d probably be told it’s the realtor’s fault. But let’s stop for a minute and consider the situation from the realtor’s point of view. For realtors, a virtual reality tour is yet another expense they may not recover. If the home doesn’t sell, or the owner decides to take the home off the market, the money that was invested by the realtor in a virtual reality tour is lost.
But there’s a better way that works for both the realtor and the homeowner. A serious homeowner can pay up front for the virtual reality tour and then negotiate with the realtor to have the cost removed from the commission once the property sells. The advantage of this approach is that the homeowner owns the virtual reality tour. They have a keepsake of their former home and a powerful selling tool. The realtors I have spoken to said they would not mind paying for the advertising advantage of a virtual reality tour after the sale has been completed.
Why not show off the great view or the chef’s quality kitchen on your property? With a virtual reality tour, everything appears in context. It’s like a personal tour. Make your listing stand out. Bring buyers to your door and let them step inside. They will take a virtual walk around the property and with every step they will come closer to wanting to call your property their new home.
