2021 has been an incredible year. As lockdown eases and things begin to return to normal, you would imagine that virtual tours would become less vital. However, the last year has permanently changed the property market and potential purchasers now frequently wish to carry out a virtual viewing prior to a physical one.
At Crook & Blight, 360° virtual tours are currently included free with every listing. Not only does this increase the number of potential viewers, but also dramatically reduces the amount of time wasters physically viewing your home. We use almost 100% Virtual Tours.
