Using technology to sell property in the modern age

Whereas before we welcomed our customers into our branch with their queries, we’ve now come to rely on email and telephone to keep the communication lines open.

We’ve seen a vast increase in contact through social media messaging too and are most thankful that we live in a time whereby all of this is possible through the wonderful world wide web.

For those of our clients selling their properties, we can now also offer a fantastic virtual tour service too. We are thrilled to be able to offer this savvy, cutting edge solution which enables you to view your next home from the comfort of your current home!

Explore homes that take your fancy at your leisure, with this interactive option which allows you to investigate every room, from focusing in on the floor tiles to checking out the window ledges – and all from the convenience of your own laptop.

There’s no need to align schedules to fit in a show around or take time off work to be able to envisage whether or not a property might work for you and your family.

Our virtual tours also give our clients the opportunity to really showcase their property.

If you are looking to move, this is an efficient way to drive a sale faster because your home is available to view 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

It also means you can live your life as normal without having to constantly tidy up for impromptu viewings!

Plus, your potential buyer can be more confident in their decision making as they are able to revisit over and over at their whim, giving them a greater opportunity to connect with the property.

Virtual tours allow for a better understanding of the layout of the property and its features rather than pictures alone.

Buyers tend to visit a property more than once before they make a decision and a virtual tour allows them to envision living there, discuss any doubts with a partner and consider where they might put their own furniture.

Add this to the other interactive features on our site, including our mortgage calculator, information about local amenities and search functions makes that investigatory process, and decision making, simple and effective. We also invest in listing all our properties on property portals such as Rightmove and Zoopla as standard, giving them extended exposure on popular platforms, reaching a wider audience.

In January 2021 alone, the Rightmove website received more than 211 million visits from home-movers – a record for this time of year. The time spent on the site in the same period totalled more than 1.6 billion minutes – or over 3,000 years! (source Rightmove).

Many of our properties include the virtual tour option. One of which is this delightful semi-detached family residence in Little Stanion, which has been designed for modern day family living
