It may not be possible for prospective clients to go visit their dream home just now but you might still be able to show around thanks to the wonder of virtual viewings!
Many estate agents are now marketing their properties using video walk-throughs or 360° photo tours. Here at GNB Property Software Solutions you also get to connect with your applicants face-to-face through a unique built in video link – enabling you to walk them through the viewing, room by room, highlighting key features and answering questions as you go.
Even before the coronavirus pandemic hit the UK and the implementation of strict social distancing measures to combat the spread of the virus, viewing a home from the safety of your armchair has never been so attractive to would-be renters and buyers.
And many enterprising agents, who are now ordered by the Government to cancel viewings are making the most of this, and you can too!

You create the virtual viewing experience by capturing 3D images of the property to be viewed using virtual reality. By using the most up to date 360° cameras, you can create a precise digital version of your client’s home.
For any house sale or rental, viewings are an essential part of the process. A virtual viewing can have many advantages such as opening the property up to a larger set of potential buyers, such as international buyers who are unable to physically get to your property.
As the virtual viewing can be seen at any time, prospective buyers or tenants can view your home at a time to suit them, convenient for those who just want to take a quick look at the property or those that have busy schedules. Virtual viewings can be especially beneficial for landlords who are operating a house of multiple occupancy or have tenants in situ, as arranging viewings for these properties can be difficult.
Yes, they can be. You just click the option to do this and the rest is taken care of for you.
All you have to do is to work with the vendor or landlord to prepare the property as you would for any other physical viewing. We also advise that pets and guests are not present whilst you capture the images and that valuables and clutter are kept to a minimum. The cameras will take a 360° scan of each room and this usually takes about an hour to complete.
The end product is a 3D walkthrough of your property, allowing potential buyers or tenants to enter rooms, go up and down the stairs and visit any outside spaces that your clients have.
The virtual viewing will be accessible via all browsers on your website, Zoopla, Rightmove, On the Market and Prime Location. It can be accessed on any digital device - smart phone, laptop, tablets etc.
The virtual valuation is where you send a link to your vendor or landlord to connect with you on a two way camera, allowing them to walk you around their property. Using google maps and streetview, plus various other data sources, you will then be able to give a professional opinion as to the value of your property. You will then discuss your marketing proposition with your prospective client and then follow that up with a copy of your presentation and brochure for them to review.
Should they wish to market their property with you in this way, you then discuss with them exactly how we go about recording the remote walk through.
