The way you can view and buy property is changing. Technology will enable buyers to ‘visit’ homes without even walking through the front door
- Estate agents are now offering virtual reality home tours to help buyers buy property easier
- Properties can be entered via an app, a virtual reality headset or a website
- Upmarket agent Foxtons is among the early adopters of the technology
- It helps buyers compile a shortlist and sellers get genuine offers
Traditionally, you would need to find an estate agent and book a viewing that suited both you and the seller to buy property.
Services such as Zoopla and Rightmove already help many buyers whittle down choice by allowing them to browse images online first. Now some estate agents are offering virtual reality home tours.
