Real Estate Photography & Virtual Tours

Are you aware that  84% of buyers are previewing available homes on-line prior to viewing them in person?  This on-line shopping has become a process of elimination for weeding through the number of available homes for sale in today's real estate market.

Your home's on-line listing is essentially a Virtual Open House. It's imperative to highlight the key selling features of the home and immediately grab a buyer's attention. The images you present with your listing need to generate positive interest and allure buyers into wanting to view the home in person.

You have one chance to make a good first impression, which could mean the difference between a potential sale or a missed opportunity!

Some of the benefits to including a virtual tour with your home's listing:

  • Enables you to gain the maximum exposure for your home's listing
  • Opportunity to reach out of state buyers who are looking to relocate
  • Buyers are able to view your home's listing at their convenience- 24/7
  • As a seller, you're more than likely to only receive calls from serious buyers
  • Ability to provide enhanced details about your home's key selling features
  • Virtual tours help evoke more emotion than traditional still photos. Remember..buyers purchase a home based on emotions!

Virtual Tours get 4more hits than listings with still photos and 20 X more hits than listings with no pictures at all.
