Over 14,000 homes are sold every day in the United States. While the COVID-19 pandemic has slowed down the housing market a bit, many analysts don’t see this downturn lasting. If you are attempting to sell a home during this confusing time in history, you have to embrace the power of technology. Working with an experienced real estate agent is a crucial component of getting your home sold quickly. 

One of the main things a real estate agent will advise you to do is to create a virtual home tour for interested buyers. In most cases, a real estate agent will help you create and advertise this listing. Before posting a link to your virtual home tour online, you need to make sure it has some of the following elements. 

Include a Picture of Your Home’s Floor Plan

Some homeowners get so wrapped up in including flashy camera angles and top-notch transitions in their virtual tour that they forget about some basic elements. While walking a person through your home virtually is a must, you also need to provide them with more context about how your residence is set up. The best way to do this is by including a picture of your home’s floor plan. 

If you don’t have a floor plan handy, try contacting the builder who constructed your residence. In some areas, the local building permit agency will have a copy on file. If you can’t track down a floor plan using these methods, you may have to work with your real estate agent to hand draft one. By including this information, you can give online home buyers the information they need to decide whether or not your residence is the right fit for their needs. 

Video Footage of Appealing Home Features

A walkthrough of your home is only one of the things your virtual listing should include. You also need to make a video that highlights the great features your home has. These features should include things like energy-efficient appliances, doors and windows. 

Getting video from inside of your garage is also a good idea. If you are unsure about what features to highlight in this video, seek out the guidance of your real estate agent. They will be able to give you a breakdown of the features home buyers like. By producing a video with these great features, you can entice buyers and sell your home in record time. 

Good Audio and Lighting

If you are developing a video tour of your home to show to online buyers, making sure it is well-lit is vital. Poor lighting can make your home look unappealing and dull. You also need to make sure that there the audio featured in the virtual home tour is crisp and easy to understand. With these two elements in place, you can provide consumers with a great representation of what your home has to offer.
