Virtual Tour Prep - Sell a Home - Ayre/Rhinehart REALTORS®

Virtual tours aren't new to the real estate industry but they're perhaps bigger — and more important — today than ever before. Virtual tours offer a number of benefits to both buyers and sellers. Buyers can conveniently take walk-throughs of properties all around the world, viewing as many spaces as they wish before committing to an in-person walk-through. Sellers, in turn, only receive qualified and motivated buyers at their doorstep and the decreased cleaning requirements also save them money in the long-run. If you're planning on listing your house alongside other Midland homes for sale, here are a few tips from our REALTORS® that will help you prep your home for a successful virtual tour.

  • Begin With the Basics
    Your virtual tour preparation begins with the same basic open house preparation. You should create a checklist of all of the cleaning and maintenance tasks that you need to complete. Separate these by room so you can close each space off as you finish.
