….”get back to you” I wonder how many agents out there have heard this before?
It can be frustrating when a buyer doesn’t realize that you have actually;
1] found something that matches the desired “tick box” list
2] found a property within a specified budget & location
3] advised them as soon as you are aware of the listing, most times a
day or two before the general public en masse find out about it.
Soon we will be able to direct buyers to conduct there “drive-by” virtually, via Google Street View. So even in they are in the North Island or 18,000kms away in Manchester, they can do a drive-by, and the only thing that will control their view is the size of their mobile phone screen, their PC monitor or TV screen.
Another great use I can foresee for real estate agents would be after the weekly agents new listings inspection tour, when they can flash out a email to their VIP buyer or whole VIP buyers list.
That way even if the listing agent hasn’t taken photos yet or loaded the property up to the web, by just visiting StreetView, a buyer can still make some initial visual assessments.
By clicking on the link in the email, and being re-directed to StreetView, a buyer can check out the street appeal, the driveway, the neighbourhood, or any other thing that might or might not be on their “tick box” list. Small things like are there any high tension power lines directly overhead, is the house close to a corner, where the nearest bus-stop is, etc.
