It wasn’t long ago when the only way to tour a house would be to visit in person. But here’s the good news: The rules on how to tour a house have changed in ways that can save time, lower your exposure to COVID-19, and even curb your stress levels, too. Ace your house-hunting game for the modern day with Virtual Showings, where agents are ready to live a one-on-one viewings on your choice of platform, whether WhatsApp, Zoom, FaceTime, Google Hangouts, or other app.

Hybrid models are a great tool for the agents because it also benefits sellers as well by giving maximum exposure to the property.

Donning a face mask, protective shoe coverings, and adhering to a no-handshake policy, a virtual viewing means you’re one step closer to making your move.

So should you opt for a virtual tour, or go for the real thing? According to many real estate experts, a virtual tour is the faster, easier, and safest place to start. While buying a home “sight unseen” as they say is a risky move few are willing to take, virtual tours are still a great way to whittle down your options and spend less time running around town. All in all, virtual tours can help you narrow your options. Thereafter, you can revisit the top contender(s) in-person for a closer look and authentic feel. Schedule a virtual showing, in-person showing for any of Vista Real Estate’s listings, and find your space today.
