Take a look at a Virtual Walkthrough
At SellMyHome, we pride ourselves on bringing innovation to the estate agency industry – that’s why we use cutting edge technology like Virtual Walkthrough to help sell our homes. We’ve been seeing the benefits of using more modern methods than our traditional counterparts, you only need to look as far as our Facebook open houses to see evidence of that.
We helped Mike Freeman to get £10,000 more than the asking price on his 2 bedroom London flat by holding the world’s first virtual open house on Facebook using Virtual Walkthrough. For the three hours that the open house was live, 145 people viewed the property, and shares meant that a reach of 29,349 was achieved.
The property sold for £42,000 more than an identical property in the block that sold a few months previously. Pairing this with SellMyHome’s flat fee rates over traditional commission, the Freeman family saved £51,360. Following this success, we’ve been holding weekly virtual open houses on Facebook every Wednesday.

House viewing in the digital age
SellMyHome’s Managing Director, Will Clark said that: “The technology is convenient for both buyer and seller; gone are the days when homeowners have to negotiate their time around others, whilst potential buyers are no longer required to traipse inconveniently through someone else's home. By taking this old school forum for viewing a house online the process was streamlined for the people that matter most.
“In the digital age in which we live, traditional agents need to adapt and be open-minded about these new technologies rather than defer to their default setting of suspicion or they run the risk of simply being left behind.”
Much more than a tour
Virtual Walkthrough provides a true-to-life property viewing experience, allowing viewers a 360 virtual tour using HD photography making it the perfect first look at a property. There are endless benefits to using Virtual Walkthrough. It cuts down the inconvenience of having to show around potentially uninterested viewers around your house because they’ve already had the chance to look view it at their own ease through their laptop screens. If they didn’t like it after seeing it on the Virtual Walkthrough, they wouldn’t book to see it in person.
With 95% of people beginning their search for a new property on the web, it only makes sense to use the best possible technology to present your home to potential buyers. With Virtual Walkthrough, our vendors are placing themselves in a prime position to show off their home using the most pioneering examples of property photography.
The Virtual Walkthrough is included in our London package, which costs £850. If you’re interested in finding out more about Virtual Walkthrough and how you can use it, give our team a call on 0203 44 12345.
