“Virtual Reality” – it sounds like science fiction, but it is here right now, and when it comes to property marketing, it promises to be simply huge.
‘VR’ as it is known, allows the user to experience a virtual tour of the property, using either a VR headset (like the one worn by the Ostrich in the Samsung TV advert) or by simply opening the VR tour on your computer or tablet, just like using Google street-view.
You can literally walk through every room, looking at floor, ceiling, ahead of you and behind you – a full 360 degree world of virtual reality. It really is ‘just like being there’.
Trigg & Co are the first Island agent to bring VR to the marketing of property. Since we are the only agent to have a professional photographer on our team, not only do you get wonderful, professionally staged photographs of your property, you can also have a full VR tour on Rightmove, Zoopla, Wight agents and the Trigg & Co website.
What are the benefits?
Firstly, the VR tour showcases every aspect of the property. It really means that every possible buyer can ‘view’ your property and see its features and atmosphere. The VR tour works together with the floorplan to give a total walk-through of the property. There is no chance of your home being missed.
Secondly, it cuts down on wasted viewings – so less waiting around and less constant tidying up! The potential buyers that come to view your home are REALLY interested in it – meaning more chance of a sale and a better price.
Thirdly, it is great for mainland buyers. They can view your home without needing to cross the water – and when they do come they are seriously interested and much more likely to make an offer.
The Trigg & Co Showroom – come in and see VR for yourself
The Trigg & Co showroom on the St Cross Business Park has a comfortable, air conditioned ‘VR room’ where buyers can come to view available properties in VR with Trigg & Co’s knowledgeable staff alongside them and able to point out everything your home has to offer.
