The Virtual Visit: A Current Asset For Real Estate

The side effect of the health crisis is to make lots of people want more spacious accommodation. Obviously, their search is not helped by the social distancing enforced during confinement and recommended thereafter. Luckily, the virtual real estate tour protects all buyers and sellers, and real estate agents. Unconvinced? Visit this beautiful home and enjoy the advantages of this innovative tool! Care about your wellbeing by combining transactions in real estate with a new national slogan: # stayathome!

Protected and reassured real estate customers

It is easy to imagine the advantages of the virtual visit in times of health crisis, where the slightest contact between people can have unfortunate consequences.

Contactless visits

Social distancing is one of the pillars of the coronavirus strategy, and it will surely have to continue for several months after the containment lifts. In such a sense, the real estate acquisitions and goods sales ventures would have to proceed in a more secure manner. The virtual tour allows buyers to view the smallest details of a home, comfortably remaining in their living room.

Vendor protection strengthened

The risk mitigation applies just as much to sellers who no longer have to invite prospective buyers to their homes, at times in large numbers. The virus can be transmitted by interaction with objects in the environment, it is very comforting that others will not use the door handles for example. A reduction in risks is essential for resuming normal activity.

Well-equipped real estate agents

If virtual tours are ideal, you still have to be able to offer them. At Sextant France, we have made every effort to ensure that our independent agents can carry out real estate transactions in complete safety.

Equipment planned in advance

Already part of the practice of real estate agents, the virtual experience takes on its full meaning – and scale – when it can protect lives while enabling the real estate market to work. Being well aware of the complexities of the situation, our agents are equipped with the 360° cameras required for technically carrying out the virtual tour, upstream of the confinement decision. They are therefore on the job and can give sellers the opportunity to film the property during an agreed absence.

Support from Sextant France headquarters

Amplifying this movement and encouraging a global team action, Sextant France helps agent agents by centralizing camera needs and proposing a group purchasing offer reducing costs. Also, cameras are loaned to agents who were unable to equip themselves before.

As we can see, the virtual experience is an invention capable of providing multiple services. Beyond the health issue, it also allows travel to be reduced due to visits to real estate, and thus, emissions to be restricted. Everyone can use this easy-to-use tool so don’t wait any longer and visit your dream accommodation!
