The Advantages of Face-to-Face Viewings

There is no doubt that we live in a wonderful age where pretty much everything we want is at our fingertips, and there is nothing you can’t get delivered to your front door. You can spend night after night scrolling through Rightmove and Zoopla searching for your dream home, and while it’s possible to buy a home completely online, just because you can does not mean you should.

Virtual viewings are an awesome introduction to a property. If you already know the area and you are simply looking for a great flat to let, then perhaps you will never need to carry out a physical viewing.

But there is no substitute for going in person and discovering that it’s the home you really want. This is why it is always a good choice to offer guided viewings with an agent that truly knows your property!

Sensory Experience

Buying a new home is a big decision, and there are lots of things that can make a property feel more like home! There is no better way to experience a property and to get a feel for that by going in person, standing on the floors, looking out the windows, getting a feel for the neighbourhood.

As great as they are, Matterport video tours can’t capture everything!

Valuable Knowledge

Going to an in-person viewing gives buyers plenty of opportunity to quiz the folks showing them around. Your local estate agents sell homes in the area all the time, and they should be able to help answer any questions you have about the property or the area!. Being there in person also gives the buyer the opportunity to build a rapport with the agent and to fire off a list of questions that they might not feel like emailing!

Avoid Dealing with Buyers Directly

Do you really want to deal with buyers directly? Your time is precious, and agents can liaise with buyers for you. One of the best benefits is to have an experienced negotiator to deal with offers from buyers who may make a few cheeky offers! Good estate agents will also qualify all viewers to make sure they are able to purchase your property at a value you’d be happy with.

Pick the Right Agent

A face-to-face viewing or valuation with an agent not only gives you the chance to test out how you feel about certain properties but also to get a a feel for different estate agents. It’s a chance to see them in action and pick their brains, giving you the information needed to ensure you pick a good one. A good agent will get on board with your vision for moving and help you achieve your property goals.

However, if you really want to pick the right agent for selling your home, then you need look no further!
