10 REASONS TO GET A VIRTUAL TOUR
1. Get More Listings!
Beat out the competition and impress your potential sellers by including a virtual tour example in your next listing presentation.
2. Get Your Home Sold Quickly!
It is a proven fact that homes with a professional virtual tour sell more quickly than those lacking multi-media. Why? It’s simple. A picture is worth a thousand words! High-quality, sleek and professional photos will attract more buyers to come out to view a particular home. More people will book viewing appointments and more people will attend at the open house when a listing includes a virtual tour. More showings means a quicker sale!
3. A Cost-Effective Way To Advertise a Home
A virtual tour is cheaper than most newspaper, magazine or television ads and has a longer WORLDWIDE market penetration (a virtual tour is viewable 24/7 and viewable for one year). A virtual tour is interactive, whereas a print advertisement does not allow the consumer to interact or engage with the product
4. Online Marketing Benefits
Virtual tours have proven to be one of the most popular enhancements to online real estate listings. Consumers will select to view listings with virtual tours much more frequently than listings without virtual tours. In fact, more than 80% of potential buyers begin their search for a home on the internet; much more frequently than newspapers (17%), home magazines (10%) or television (2%).
There are many ways to market a virtual tour online, including through MLS and Realtor.ca, as well as on your own personal realtor website, through YouTube, or on your company’s website. Links to the virtual tour can easily be passed on in e-mails, newsletters, and on Social Networking sites.
TODAY, THE INTERNET IS THE FIRST PLACE THAT A HOME BUYER LOOKS TO FIND A PROPERTY
5. Keep Visitors On Your Site Longer
A virtual tour will help increase a web visitor’s retention or “stickiness”. In fact, users will spend an additional 2 minutes looking at a listing if it has a virtual tour – plus, it will keep them coming back!
6. Free Up Valuable Time
Did you know that potential buyers who don’t use virtual tours spend an average of three times longer with a Realtor before making a purchase decision?
THE VIRTUAL TOUR ACTS AS A SILENT SALESPERSON
With a virtual tour, a consumer can very quickly determine if they are interested in taking the next step or not, which saves your time and theirs. Detailed visual information can help viewers to finalize their decision.
Virtual Tours allow realtors to reserve their time for the most productive appointments, and spend more time relaxing, or cultivating new business.
7. Make A Lasting Impression
Virtual Tours provide detailed visual information to your potential customers beyond merely text and one or two still photos. Our virtual tours provide a relaxing, informative and engaging experience for the user, with a soft soothing music track, panoramas and a voice-over to guide them through a detailed tour of the home.
8. Stay On The Cutting Edge
More and more realtors are now using virtual tours as a tool to help market their properties. Quality virtual tours will allow you to stay on the cutting edge of successful marketing technologies, sharply closing the gap between you and your competition.
9. Less Frustration For The Client
Our “voice-over feature” provides a detailed description of the home, answering questions that a photograph cannot always answer, i.e. Are the floors laminate or hardwood? Is the kitchen countertop granite? Customers that view our virtual tours find themselves less frustrated, not having to try to guess the important details of the home that are not always obvious in a photo. Our virtual tours allow for more customer confidence in decision making!
10, Attract First-Time Home Buyers
80% of all buyers and 87% of first time home buyers use the internet to search for a home. In the 25-44 age group this number jumps to 91% of all home buyers.
VIRTUAL TOURS PAY FOR THEMSELVES OVER AND OVER!
When searching for a home, the internet is the #1 place that home buyers will look when initiating their real estate search.
A site with a virtual tour and interactive media will receive 38% more views than a competitor’s site that is lacking media
46% of home buyers who are searching for a home on Realtor.ca will not even look at a home unless there are professional photos available for the buyer to view.
