Prospective buyers can still search for their dream home despite the temporary freeze on buying and selling property.
Bell Ingram features professionally produced virtual tours on our website (www.bellingram.co.uk), which allow prospective buyers to check out properties remotely without breaking the coronavirus restrictions.
Carl Warden, Head of Estate Agency at Bell Ingram, explains: “Virtual tours were already an effective and engaging way of marketing property before the current coronavirus crisis, and I predict they will become the ‘new normal’ after lockdown as social distancing looks likely to continue for the foreseeable future in one form or another.” Bell Ingram has adapted this popular service during lockdown to offer virtual viewings, which allow prospective buyers to check out properties remotely without breaking the coronavirus restrictions.
Carl continues: “Not to be confused with the professionally produced virtual property tours which have been available for some time, these virtual viewings have become hugely popular with buyers and sellers alike during the lockdown and are a good way of marketing your property.
“However, I must emphasise that Bell Ingram will carry out the same checks on prospective buyers as we did with traditional viewings to reduce any security risk and ensure there’s a legitimate interest in buying the property.”
There are two different types of virtual viewings. The first - and easiest - format involves the seller taking a short video clip on their smartphone or tablet, and then emailing it to their agent who in turn passes it onto interested buyers.
The second type of virtual viewing is a much more sophisticated and interactive affair! Using Zoom, Teams, Facetime or What’s App, the agent sets up a live conference call to let the seller take the prospective buyer on video tour of their home. In this scenario, the agent takes the lead, pointing out key features and answering any questions.
