VIRTUAL VALUATIONS & VIRTUAL VIEWINGS
Virtual viewings have been around for sometime now but have emerged to the forefront due to Covid-19. It offers a safer alternative for applicants to view a property and for vendors to be able to show their property. It fills that gap between just looking at photos and a floorplan and can offer the opportunity to get a more accurate and personal feel of the property. This technology will change the way in which this industry works and allows us to be able to comply with social distancing rules. This may not be the answer for all our vendors and we do understand, so physical viewings are still available.
AS A VENDOR OR LANDLORD HOW DO I ORGANISE A VIRTUAL VIEWING?
We are asking our vendors to film their own video tours and then we can share with potential buyers on our website and other portals. If you prefer for the video not to be shared online we can safely keep on our software and email to interested parties. Most smart phones offer good cameras so the quality should suffice.
If you need some information on how to use the video camera please contact the negotiator who you have been dealing with or alternatively contact email@example.com or CLICK HERE to view our Step by Step Guide.
We are also offering the opportunity of having a 3D Matterport prepared on your property allowing the viewer to view the property in their own time whenever they want.
The Matterport tour can create a fully navigable, high-definition 360-degree walk-through of a property. The software allows the viewer to navigate the house from a ‘doll’s house’ perspective and link between floors. For anyone who has not experienced this it is similar to using Google Street View. CLICK HERE to see an example of a Matterport Tour – if you require more information please contact your negotiator.
AS A VENDOR OR LANDLORD – HOW DOES CAMERONS STIFF & CO CONDUCT A VIRTUAL VALUATIONS?
Please supply us a video of your property using the camera on your smart phone. If this is not possible a physical valuation will need to be arranged while abiding by all the social distancing ruling and the Government Guidelines. All our staff have been provided with “Welfare Packs” and have been fully instructed on the Guidelines set by Camerons Stiff & Co.
If you have any difficulty and need to know how to make a video, please contact either one of our offices who can explain it to you or please CLICK HERE to view our STEP BY STEP GUIDE and PREPARING A HOME VIDEO. Videos can be sent to the negotiator who have organised the virtual valuation either via email, WhatsApp or WeTransfer.
APPLICANTS & TENANTS AND HOW A VIRTUAL VIEWING WILL WORK
You will see on many of the property portals and our website, videos & Matterport Tours already available to view. Some of our vendors however are preferring viewings to be done with the negotiator so this can be easily organized via Zoom – allowing each member of your family even if living in different households to be part of the viewing. Alternatively, the negotiator can email you the video or Matterport tour to view.
For more information as to how this works please contact your negotiator.
