With countries across the world in lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, like so many other industries, the property industry, and estate agents in particular, have had to adapt quickly in order to maintain the level of service they provide to their clients.
As you may already be aware, Alexander & Co has adapted in numerous ways: by opening more channels of communication than ever before, including virtual meeting; by conducting virtual valuations and appraisals; and, most recently, virtual viewings.
We actually started filming our virtual viewings before we went into lockdown, but we’re now into our third week putting these together properly, and we’ve been delighted by the response both from our sellers and landlords, who have been incredibly proactive in sending us in their videos, but also our tenants and buyers who have been watching our videos. Generally speaking, the feedback has been incredibly positive, and, although we’re happy to admit that virtual viewings are not the same as viewing a property in person, it’s undeniable that you do get a sense of a home from these short videos.
Alexander & Co and Ella Homes between us have over 35 virtual viewings of properties for both sale and rent on our YouTube channel
If you would like to talk to our team about virtual viewings, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Similarly, if you are a buyer or tenant who would like a virtual viewing of a property, please request this from our team.
Keep safe and happy viewing, everyone!
