Well, actually you can't buy a home like that, however, the point is that today's buyer has made a decision on your property before even seeing it in person.  Especially if that decision is to skip your home and go on to the next one.  Most people will view your home over the internet before ever setting foot through the door.  Their first impression of your property is made through a computer monitor.
