Online Viewings & Video Tours Performance
4 April 2020
As an update to the below article from the 4th April, since we introduced the video tours:
- They have been watched for just under 35 hours
- The videos have had 1100 views
- They have been watched 125 times in the past 48 hours.
With consideration of a long term view, this should certainly assist in marketing properties for however long this situation continues. I think it is important to demonstrate that, although it would be disappointing to have a vacant property during this period, opportunities can still be found by working proactively and thinking outside the box.
Because viewing a property in person is not possible for the foreseeable future due to the Government advice for people to stay in their homes, we've been working proactively to setup Online Viewings & Video Tours for any vacant properties.
We're the first agent to setup 'Online Viewings' in this area and the tag now shows on Rightmove, as per the below image.
We’ve been working to create a way to showcase properties to allow applicants to get a better feel for a property without leaving their homes. That should help to keep prospective applicants engaged.
We are targeting to update this service for all vacant properties over the coming weeks. The feedback so far has been positive.
We received the following enquiries this morning:
"Hi, We are looking for a new place for my wife's parents. They are available to move in ASAP and like the look of the property, seen via the virtual tour video. Are you still operating?"
"I would like to be considered for the above property. I have watched the video and I fell in love with the property. "
We will continue to be active and innovate where possible. This includes interviewing tenants remotely and completing applications online.
