4 Hot Tips for a Killer Virtual Tour

Some people believe that virtual tours are a must, and in the digital age, they might be right. Are you using virtual tours as part of your marketing effort for each home you list? If you are, are they actually bringing in buyers?4 Hot Tips for Virtual Tours

Effective Virtual Tours Mean More Sales

If youre skipping out on the fundamentals, which are different now than they were five years ago, you might just be spinning your wheels. At Benchmark Realty, were committed to giving you all the tools you need to make your business a success. That said, there are four key ingredients that go into an amazing (and effective) virtual tour:

1. High-Resolution Pictures Say Thousands of Words

Once the home is properly staged, pictures taken with a digital SLR camera can highlight its best features and those pictures can bring in between $934 and $116,076 more than listings taken with an ordinary camera.

2. Silence is Golden

Piping music throughout your tour is a thing of the past. The first thing people do is click the Volume button and shut it off; they might already have their own music playing, they might not like yours or it might even startle them (how many times have you left your computers volume all the way up?).

3. All the Right Rooms

You only have a limited amount of time with a virtual tour, so it makes sense to focus on the areas buyers really want to see: the kitchen and the master bathroom. Spending a little more time on those two rooms can help you snag the right buyers more quickly.

4. Branding that Sticks

Sure, they loved your virtual tour. In fact, they loved it so much they shared it all over social media, emailed it to their parents and want to watch it again and again. But without your branding firmly implanted throughout the video and a call-to-action at the end, they may forget where they saw it. Branding your virtual tour is as simple as leaving your logo or name in the lower corner of the screen while it plays.

The call-to-action at the end should remind your viewers that they can see the home in person; consider scrawling across the screen, To schedule a personal tour of this home, call Jim Agent with Benchmark Realty at 555-1212.

When youre giving viewers what they want to see, theyre more likely to work with you than anyone else. If youre not a Benchmark Realtor yet, lets fix that contact us and well help you take control of your real estate career. name="Join Us"]
