Hey everyone, how is business?
Listen, I was just wondering, what is it that everyone likes about the virtual tour business?
Personally, I love the freedom of the job. Getting up in the morning, grabbing some breakfast, and hitting the road, it is the best way to start off the day, in my opinion. I love driving and listening to some groovy beats on the way to do a stress-free job.
What I like about actually doing the virtual tours, themselves, is the variety. Each home is different. Even if you are shooting to properties that are structurally identical, you are guaranteed two separate experiences. There are no two homes with the exact same décor. Let me tell you, I have seen some pretty awesome homes since I have been do this work. I have seen indoor pools, saunas, trophy rooms, and by this I mean dead animal heads hanging on the wall. I have seen home theaters, game rooms, and some really, really sweet bars. Even the weirdest architecture can look really awesome with the right touch.
Sometimes you get tours when no one is home. These tours are nice because you can get in and out, and get back to the tunes. Still, other times you get tours where the seller is there, at which times, I believe a good conversation is a must. All they know about you is what their agent has told them, so I feel it makes them a bit more comfortable when you are sociable. Sometimes the agent makes an appearance. Whenever the agent is present I look at it as a great opportunity to strengthen my business relation with that particular client.
I mean, honestly, is there a downside to this job?
Anyway, that is all I have to say about that...Let me know what some of your thoughts.
