New home developers go virtual with online reservations and video walkthroughs.
During this period of lockdown, it can feel like your whole life has come to a grinding halt. However, more and more businesses are changing the way they do business going forward and new home developers are no exception.
With the power of video, virtual walkthroughs, website, email and other technology, buying your new home online is becoming the new norm.
Before COVID-19 buyers would look at the developers’ website, view the floorplans, images and videos then go to the development to view the showhome.
Today people are prepared to buy online to avoid losing out on the home they have always wanted.
With the use of technology, you can see more than just the showhome. You can view several property types giving you the advantage of a selection of properties to choose from.
There’s even drone footage being used to show the surroundings of the whole development.
Some developers are offering viewings via Facetime through smartphone applications.
It remains to be seen if this new virtual viewing style will remain in place after lockdown is over. But experts believe it will certainly change how developers show their properties online.
However, for some, there are many aspects of buying a new home that can’t be captured by the camera. Such as the feel of the place, the smell of a new home and the space it has.
Whichever way you prefer to view there is no getting away from the fact that online technology is here to stay and offers a great virtual experience in the comfort of your own home.
So there is no need to stop looking just because you are confined to home. Chose your new home now and reserve online to secure your preferred plot.
