WIth new government restrictions launching us into a new lockdown from the 5th November businesses are invariably having to change the way they operate again. Estate agents will welcome the change to the rules from the last lockdown which now allows them to continue to operate and show properties to prospective buyers. But this poses its own challenges, how can properties be shown while protecting prospective buyers and their agents from the coronavirus? One way is through video viewings.
Even before the Coronavirus pandemic, many estate and letting agents were embracing new technology to showcase properties online. Video walkthroughs, 3D imaging and drone footage were just some of the ways tech savvy agents were advertising properties. Now that virtual viewings are actively encouraged under current public health guidance, it is the perfect time for you to experiment with using video footage to show off your property.
Are they worth it?
We want to put this out there straight away; video viewings will never be able to replace buyers coming into a property and viewing it first hand in real life. But what they can offer is greater accessibility for prospective buyers during the pandemic. Virtual viewings not only make it easier for buyers and tenants to view a home, but they reduce the number of wasted viewings.
Virtual viewings line up serious movers to view the property in real life while filtering out buyers who may not be so serious or for whom the property is not right. This not only improves efficiency, but reduces the burden on estate agents to facilitate lots of ‘COVID safe’ property viewings, when realistically, only a few of those viewing the property are serious about buying or renting.
What does it involve?
Video viewings of properties require very little effort on the part of the estate agent. For the most part, all you will need to do is provide details of the property and Our fully trained, professional photographer will come to the property and capture footage using state-of-the-art aerial and interior cameras. All of which only takes a few hours. Then, the footage will be edited together into a high quality, professional video featuring music and personalised branding to fit your business.
And then that’s it! You’re ready to launch your video on your website, social media or wherever else you may want to share it.
