Maximise your property’s exposure online.

Bypass the stress of physical open homes with 6 simple tips to help maximise engagement with your property online.

The power of social media

With most of South Africa in lockdown and self-isolating and working remotely, the use of social media is essential to selling or leasing your property. Act now by taking your family and friends on a tour of your home using Facebook Live Video. On completion, Live Videos become posts to share with your family and friends.

Want to leverage social media but not so keen on doing it yourself? Harcourts agents have access to specialised products that increase the digital exposure of your property through social and search platforms.

Virtual tours

A virtual tour is a collection of 3D images that are stitched together in sequence and provide a user-driven video-like way to explore a property. With the ability to move independently, the user can explore with a click of a button, focusing on lighting, flooring, size, layout, or any other aspect of interest to them in each room. A virtual tour allows your home to remain permanently open for anyone who would like to inspect.

Virtual viewings

Unlike virtual tours, virtual viewings can be personalised. Virtual viewings allow buyers and tenants to be taken on a personal tour of your property at an arranged time, guided by your agent.

Goodbye 2D floorplans, hello 3D floorplans

Unlike 2D floorplans, 3D floorplans provide a better understanding of volume and space. Buyers and tenants get a great spatial sense of how each room works together, with key items like furniture helping them to understand scale.

Allow your buyers to virtually ‘move in’

Making an investment into a planning tool, like “Design Home: House Renovation™” solution, might be a great addition to your property marketing suite.

This app enables potential buyers to visualise the living potential in the property before moving in, helping them plan where their furniture would go and how any renovations might look. With simple drag and drop movements, home buyers can choose from a library of different furniture to digitally decorate the floorplan, including tools to add and remove walls.
