Virtual Tours? Win/Win!
How Do You Feel About Virtual Tours On Your Listings? I think that in today's market, most clients expect a virtual tour on their home. If you don't offer it, you are probably losing some listings that you could be getting. Virtual tours can attract more buyers than just photos alone. Buyers today want to see everything about a home, not just a few still shots of a few rooms. I recommend not only doing a tour on the inside of the home, but of the outside as well. And don't just stop there; you can tour the entire subdivision...and should! One great advantage of this strategy is that once you do a tour of a subdivision, you can use it on any home in that subdivision. You can also use that tour to advertise for listings AND/OR buyers! The tour helps you become THE neighborhood expert! The more info you provide, the more people look to you for answers! Win/Win!
What Virtual Tour Company Do You Use? Well, I have tried a couple different ones. Right now, I use PREVISITE™. In a word, I love it. It is very cost effective and user friendly. You can use their camera with a fish eye lens, or you can use your digital camera and make normal photos. After you upload them to the PREVISITE site, they are instantly converted into virtual tours!! No work involved!! No stitching, No headaches! No problem! Win/Win!
What Do You Do With Your Virtual Tours Once You Have Made Them? With PREVISITE™ you can upload your tours directly to YouTube©, facebook©, twitter©, your MLS, your website, and/or many other sites! You can also send your tours directly to REALTOR.com®. My favorite PREVISITE™ feature is the ability to copy the html code of the tour and insert it directly into my blogs. If you follow my blogs regularly, you may have seen some of my PREVISITE™ virtual tours. Win/Win!
So, How Much Does PREVISTE™ Cost? Like all sites, it is subject to change, but at the moment, it costs around $299 per year to avail yourself of their site and services. And there is no setup fee! That is less than $25 per month! And you have unlimited virtual tours at your disposal! To date I have yet to find a site I like better. I have used PREVISITE™ now for over 3 years. Win/Win!
