There are 1147 properties actively on the market in the Central VA region as of this morning. Only 7% – 7 percent! of these properties use some form of virtual tour. 30% have either only one photo or no photo at all!
I simply do not understand why so few use the available tools and why the consumer does not demand a higher level of service. Granted, some properties simply do not lend themselves to be marketed this way, but the vast majority of homes do. The more people who can see inside your home (remove all personal pictures, etc. first!) the greater potential for gaining more showings and thus, hopefully a sale. On a side note, we use Visual Tours on almost every property we market.
