Technology is driving the way we do pretty much everything these days and estate agency in central London is no exception.
The internet has completely changed the way that we buy and sell houses; photos, floor plans, interactive street view and much more are all available at our fingertips at any time of day or night. Minor improvements to this service have crept in over the last few years but the time has now come for the next major change in how we view properties.
Frank Harris and Company have been using virtual tours thanks to Inspired Labs since the middle of 2013 and have already reaped enormous benefits from this latest technological advancement.
“Many of our buyers over the last 12 months simply would not have been able to commit to these properties without the use of this superb technology.” says Sam Ball, Sales Manager at Frank Harris and Company’s midtown office. “The world is getting smaller and many of the buyers currently purchasing in central London are from overseas, but even our London buyers tend to be phenomenally busy. Making time to view properties, whether for their own occupation or for investment purposes, is harder than ever. The virtual tour enables potential buyers to view properties from the comfort of their own home or office, allowing them to pick and choose which properties to visit in person.
The tours are fully interactive meaning that you can quite literally walk through the property at your leisure. This technology is here to stay and I don’t think it will be too long before all agents are taking this up.”
Frank Harris and Company have been helping people to buy and sell their homes in central London for more than 30 years and are held in high regard by many of the local residents. “Getting ahead of the technological curve is not always an easy thing to do but on this occasion I think we have introduced this product at precisely the right time.” said Andrew Sorene, Group Director who has been with Frank Harris in Bloomsbury and Midtown for more than 25 years himself. “I think we may be the only estate agent in the immediate local area offering the fully interactive room by room tours to our clients”.
