ARE VIRTUAL SALES THE WAY OF THE FUTURE? - June 1, 2021 at 3pm
One of the biggest advantages of virtual sales presentations is convenience. Buyers can view properties from the comfort of their own homes, without having to worry about scheduling a physical viewing or traveling to multiple locations. This can save time and money, especially for buyers who are relocating from another city or country.
Virtual sales presentations can also be safer than in-person viewings, particularly during a pandemic, when healthcare systems are overwhelmed. By minimizing contact between buyers and sellers, virtual tours can reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 or other illnesses.
Another advantage of virtual sales presentations is that they can be more efficient than in-person viewings. Buyers can ask questions and receive answers in real-time without having to wait for a follow-up email or phone call. They can also take notes or record the presentation for future reference, which can be especially helpful if they are considering multiple properties.
However, virtual sales presentations do have some limitations. While they can give buyers a sense of the layout and features of a property, they may not provide the same level of detail as an in-person viewing. For example, buyers may not be able to get a sense of the neighborhood or the surrounding area, or even the size of the interior. They also may not be able to get a true sense of the builder’s quality, or any potential issues that may not be visible on camera.
Ultimately, whether virtual sales presentations are the new way to purchase your home will depend on your individual preferences and needs. If you are comfortable making a decision based on a virtual tour and have limited time or resources for in-person viewings, a virtual sales presentation may be the best option for you. However, if you prefer to see a property in person and get a feel for the neighborhood and surrounding area, an in-person viewing may be necessary.
