You can handle many routine tasks virtually these days, from attending a business conference to playing games with friends or family across the country. But did you know that you can also take a virtual tour of a custom home? This can be tremendously advantageous if you’re preparing for the home-buying process and haven’t experienced the elegance of custom homes just yet.
Let’s go over some of the benefits of virtual tours for custom homes.
According to the National Association of Realtors, 44 percent of people look for properties online first. Those numbers are probably even higher this year, but the fact remains: you can’t beat the superior convenience of a virtual tour. Enjoy perusing different custom homes from the comfort of your own couch and don’t worry about traffic or getting dressed. Once you’ve narrowed down a home or home style you like, then you can do an in-person tour or schedule a consultation with a custom home builder.
360-Degree View and Other Features
Virtual tours have advanced in recent years. You’re no longer confined to a simple video that shows you around. The best custom home virtual tours will have interactive features like drag-and-drop 360-degree views, scroll zooming and more. At Aspire Fine Homes, our virtual tours even have features like floor plan views, floor selector, measurement mode and the ability to do the tour with a virtual reality device or smartphone. Finally, you can easily share virtual tours with friends and family members.
Speaking of sharing, you don’t have to worry about being sick or sharing viruses with anyone else thanks to a virtual tour. While COVID-19 stays at the forefront of our thoughts, we all might be practicing a little more social distancing moving forward and virtual tours are a great way to do that.
Go At Your Own Pace
Finally, virtual tours let you view a custom home at your own pace. Even the friendliest realtors can make you feel pressured just by their presence, but with a virtual tour, there’s no one leading you or following along. Take your time, view the home on your timetable and even take a break if you want—the virtual tour will always be waiting for you. Once you’re done, you can contact a custom builder like Aspire Fine Homes to answer your questions.
