As the COVID-19 outbreak has encouraged us to stay at home and socially distance ourselves, the Real Estate world has taken a turn! Agents are finding creative ways to utilize technology in order to keep our businesses thriving.
3-D Virtual tours have certainly come in handy during this pandemic. More individuals are virtually viewing homes instead of physically going inside of them, and I have to say these virtual tours are quite impressive! This technology gives buyers the ability to do their own walk-through of properties from anywhere, anytime! At Real Estate of Winter Park, we provide virtual 3-D tours for all of our listings!
Phones have also come in handy as clients want to be able to ask their agent questions about properties as they walk through them together. Facetime gives agents the ability to walk through a property with their clients without the clients physically being there.
Online meetings via Zoom have also become popular. Zoom is a fantastic resource for business meetings, online classes, social gatherings, etc. This program offers screen sharing and recording features which makes it an excellent resource for businesses, especially during the stay at home orders.
It is exciting to see how technology is shaping the Real Estate World and benefiting the Real Estate world during this crisis. This technology has provided us the potential to keep our businesses afloat and allow buyers to continue to search for their dream home! It’s a win win!
