Press release: 3 November 2005, Cambridge UK
House hunting is more than expensive, it's time consuming and tiring too. One hassle buyers and sellers can do without is the house viewing process. Sellers have to keep their house available for viewings and keep it spick and span for weeks, and even months, in case a potential buyer wants to drop in.
Buyers too need to make the time to visit a property, which may turn out to be quite impossible given other commitments. This is especially frustrating when properties are not local. As a consequence home hunters may miss a property, which might be perfect, just because they are not sure about the interior and are not able to arrange a viewing.
Now imagine home buyers could visit a seller's property without even leaving their own desktop. Home.co.uk, home to Britain's most comprehensive property search, have just introduced virtual tours to do just that. Described as "so special" by Carol Vorderman, Home.co.uk's virtual tours save home sellers' and buyers' time, money and hassle. What's more, they really help sell houses!
To create a Virtual Property Tour, our digital imaging experts visit a seller's property and take a full portfolio of pictures, including 360 degree shots to show off the house at its best. These images are then combined using the latest technology to make virtual tours of the inside and outside of the house. Once made, the tours are linked to the seller's entry on the Home.co.uk site for free, and buyers can download the tours and at the click of a mouse. They can tour the kitchen, garden, bedrooms, bathrooms and any other features you have chosen to include.
Using our buying power Home.co.uk is able to offer home sellers permanently low prices to get virtual tours of their houses. Prices have been slashed by £100 making them the most competitive tours available on the Internet today.
"What makes this site [Home.co.uk] so special is the use of 360 degree tours of homes, saving you the hassle of actually having to go and look at dozens of inappropriate properties" Carol Vorderman's Top Ten UK Property Websites, Mirror.co.uk
