The property market has been booming in Spain since many years, but this year we have seen an impressive rise in people buying overseas using virtual tours.
More so since the outbreak of the Corona virus in the beginning of March have estate agencies started to look at alternative ways to sell their properties without a Face to face interaction with the clients.
“It is not so that people go ahead and buy a property outright after seeing a virtual tour, but it helps with the selection process “, says one popular estate agency in San Pedro de Alcantara, near Marbella. “Our clients will see the virtual tours and make a shortlist of the properties they wish to see in real live when they come over. This saves us a lot of time and ultimately money!”
We spoke to one such buyer, Henry B from the UK. Henry explained that thanks to the use of virtual tours in this particular estate agency, he was able to make a small selection of properties that he could view when he was over. “It made a world of difference because not only did the agency have virtual tours of properties, they also make virtual tours of the surrounding areas so we could really get a feel what the area was like! ”
An example of such a virtual tour can be found below.
