Virtual Home Showing and Tours

Virtual Home Showing and Tours in Green Bay, WI

The global pandemic of Covid-19 altered many things in our economy and society and one significant impact it had on real estate and the housing market is the explosion of virtual home tours. Much in person contact was limited and many home showings went virtual. Oftentimes Realtors will list homes and include a virtual tour with the listing to potential buyers can get a better idea of the layout and flow of the home. A virtual tour might be a video of the home and property and/or it might also be a room buy room tour where you can pan and view each room yourself.

Despite the utility of virtual tours provided by the listing real estate agent there is no substitute to a virtual tour with your own buyer’s agent. Now that much of the covid restrictions have been lifted many more people are viewing homes in person, however it is still a seller’s market and appropriately priced homes are still selling very fast and without the contingencies of the past. The pace of the market makes virtual tours and virtual showings all the more useful. Unfortunately not everyone can be immediately available to tour a home that just came on the market and that’s where a virtual showing is handy. Your Realtor can view the home in person and actually tour with you via video chat so you can take a closer look at the details and features of the home and discuss them with your Realtor. If you’re not available for a video chat your Realtor can also take their own photos and videos and share them with you to discuss the property. This is especially handy if you are relocating and not in town to view the property in person. It’s also useful if your schedule won’t allow for an in person showing or if you have health issues which preclude an in person showing.

Today’s technology makes this process easier and more convenient than ever. When going through this process it’s important to work with a qualified Realtor and make sure you have your mortgage pre-approval in hand so you can act quickly on a property that is right for you. Whether you are a first-time home buyer or seasoned in the process it is always recommended to discuss your financial situation with a lender like Executive Mortgage and get pre-approved if a loan will be used in the real estate purchase. If you are just starting your search contact the loan officers at Executive Mortgage to ensure a smooth home buying process. If you’re not working with a real estate agent the loan officers at Executive Mortgage will be able to make some recommendations of trusted real estate agents they have worked with in the past.
