Due to the coronavirus pandemic, open houses are either limited or nonexistent. This is for the safety of everyone involved but how do you decide on a house when you can't see the inside? Fortunately, there are many video options which provide a thorough view of a home's interior and its surroundings. Let's take a closer look.
Because of the pandemic, open houses have gone through a digital transformation, allowing buyers to see every detail of a home without ever stepping foot inside. No longer do buyers have to physically visit a home to decide whether or not they want to buy it.
If you're wondering how to virtually tour real estate, look for video options attached to online listings. More and more digital home viewing options have emerged amid the pandemic including interactive virtual showings, 3-D tours, 3-D staging, and virtual home and neighborhood walkthroughs. Matterport 3-D is one example of software which provides homebuyers with the ability to see a 3-D view of the inside of a home, from top to bottom. See a room from any angle, look at schematic floor plans and utilize a measurement tool (you won't have to guess whether or not your furniture will fit in each room). Software like this has made it possible to view nearly every detail of a house from the safety of your home computer.
So if you're interested in purchasing a home but worried about physically visiting them, ask your agent to narrow down your list of preferred houses to those offering virtual tours. You might just find the home of your dreams sooner rather than much later.
The pandemic has made it challenging, if not impossible, to view the inside of a home for sale through a traditional open house. Fortunately, digital technology has replaced the on-site home tour, providing a safe alternative to viewing the inside of a home you're interested in buying. Take advantage of today's digital technology to virtually tour homes and you'll find yourself in a new home before you know it.
