8 minutes! That’s how long your property has to impress a potential home buyer when they view it online, according to research from top London estate agent, Foxtons! Find out how you can achieve this!
According to Foxtons, Londons Top Estate agent, you have 8 minutes to impress potential buyers of your property when they view it online.

So how can this be achieved?

Aside from your standard video walkarounds via the usual platforms such as Skype, Facetime and Zoom and static photography (no matter how good it is), virtual viewings through Virtual and Augmented Reality technology could be the answer.

A 360-degree virtual walk-around of a property can provide information that you just can't get from flat photos.  For example the lighting of the room, a real feel of the room sizes and space and with Augmented Reality you could even see how your own furniture would fit into the environment!

But isn't this sort of technology expensive?  Especially if you are trying to reduce the cost of selling your home?

It's now more main stream than you might think, and estate agents have been using the technology for years.  With the recent Coronavirus pandemic it has been thrust into the forefront as we look for safer ways to keep the property market moving.

The virtual reality tours and all pre-recorded and compiled in software before being made available to the public, so you dont need to worry about being caught wandering around the house in your pyjamias!  A team of professionals will arrange a visit with your home to capture the neccesary footage before editing the final viewing and making it available online.

Virtual Reality Viewings aren't just for the more expensive properties.  They are equally as effective at the other end of the market on smaller houses.
