Buyers Use Virtual Tours To Select Homes For Physical Tours

84% Of Buyers Choose Which Homes They Will Physically Tour When They Take A Virtual Tour On Their Computers

New Trend Shows Measurable Decline In Physical Tours For Homes Without Multiple Photos In The Listings

You can tour over 100 homes for sale in one session in front of FranklyMLS.

If you're a buyer, virtual showings of homes save you time and travel.  You get to see inside homes to compare room sizes, features, and decor.  

Virtual showings help you separate pick the cream-puff homes, and ditch the dumps.  You may notice that you delete/trash listings that don't have multiple virtual tours in the form of slide shows or photos.  

If you're selling your home, you want 15-25 interior photos of your home... and your home better be in "Model Home Condition" if you want to sell for top dollar, in the least time, with the fewest hassles.

When you interview agents to market your home, ask those agents to send you an email containing the listings of homes the agents have sold over the past six months.

Six months of sold listings will tell you two key items of information:

1. You want to list with busy agents who have a hefty list of homes sold; conversely, you may wish to reconsider listing with the really nice guy who talks a good game, but he hasn't sold a house since September 2009.

2. Find out which agents post 15-25 photos per listed home, and which agents don't post home tours.  Your home will pull buyers like a magnet if your home is featured in 15-25 photos that pull buyers like a magnet.


Here is a lovely home that has sat unsold for months with just one photo of the front, and no interior photos.

$825000 model home

 Meanwhile, other homes in the same area, in the same price range, with photo tours, have attracted lookers who turned into buyers. 

The home is a beautiful home with lots of room, and top-of-the-line EVERYTHING, but it's been on the market for months and months because, in my experience, buyers are drawn to listings that have photo tours.  

With no photos, buyers cannot SEE that THIS home is a MODEL HOME for sale!!  

I took my Nikon inside the home and took some photos for a customer in Kuwait who wants to buy a home now so he can move into the home when he comes back to the States.

Look at what other buyers have been missing...

The kitchen is spacious with white granite counters.  As you walk inside, you see stately columns that define the gallery and the family room with a stone fireplace that is flanked by windows.

A three-sided gas fireplace separates the master bedroom from the sitting room.  A mini-bar with sink, fridge, and storage is in a nook in the sitting room.  Columns flank the gracious master bath tub.  The front yard is shaded in the afternoon by an ancient oak tree.  Also, notice the garage doors that look like doors to a carriage house.

You can get a full listing for this home sent to you by email, with the address, directions, and a lame description by sending us a quick email.
